    He's bloated and op but it's not like he doesn't have counters and counter match ups. They do exist.

    It is funny that everytime I bring up the fact that Erlang Shen can control multiple enemies at once, everyone just goes and assumes that he is made of paper and goes in alone against an army.

    1. The taunted targets will only basic attack. Meaning that the only targets that can realisticly put some dents into your HP bar are hunters, warriors and assassins.
    1.1 Taunted Warriors and Assassins don't even hit you all that often because tauntring forces you to hit the air more often than not. Basic attack penalties are a bitch.
    2. You will have, at least, one or two protective Items when playing Erlang Shen . Together with your 3s Shield if it is up, the mitigation granted by the ultimate + the eventual heal will make you more than able to not only survive the onslaught but also get out barely scratched.
    3. You have your enemies locked in one place for 1-4 seconds, more than enough time for your allies to rain hell on them.
    4. Since the last thing to happen in that combo is the turtle form, you can use it to disengage immediatly if you feel that you overstayed your welcome disregarding the above.


    Of course, given how people enjoy to throw around arguments like "He is more of an assassin anyway" or some of the other things I have read in this or other threads, I should not be suprised about me having to explain these things.

    For me he is balanced. He actually need to aim more then one or two of his abilitys and hes main dmg comes from AA which makes him not that easy to play like some gods (you know who i am talking about). Also he is great counter to anubis (no1 pick god in casual) and that makes him real pain in the ... back for most people. Some warriors can eat him, same goes for hunters. Also until he gets quins he cant do much to most guardians.

    The only think i really hate about him is the model. I really hope they will give him some nice skin and i dont have to watch it ever again

    The question of "How much skill is required?" is irrelevant when discussing balance unless the skill ceiling is literally so high that nobody can get even close to utilizing a god to full potencial.

    There isn't much skill involved in using and landing basic attacks when you get Fatalis baked into your kit for free.

    Erlang Shen doesn't exactly have a lot of bad match-ups. Just a lot of very bad players letting less but still bad players think that he has a lot of bad match ups.

    Are we talking solo lane or jungle Shen. Jungle Shen gets shut down since he usually builds dmg and less defense items.

    Solo lane Shen with Bov and Bulwark is pretty hard to shut down

    Agreed with most; he doesn't really have one
    Either try to work with your team or get used to dying alone; That's SMITE, friends. That's the Golden Rule. Everything else is negotiable.
