Stuff in red.A god like skadi that has insane 1v1 potential shouldn't have ever had a decent teamfight outside of Aoe abilties. Yeah the dog gets shredded if you're stupid and you just send it at them like poke.
You know that's not true, the dog gets shredded regardless in a real 5v5 team fight when the enemy team knows to respect your damage.
Early game you can 'send it' at ppl cuz they don't have a lot of attack speed, sure and if you're close enough the dog can get a few bites in.
You send out the dog because you don't put a level in it as your first skill and it's basically worthless outside poke for a few levels.
Yeah you can kill her steroid buts you can heal it up with the ult or off a camp/wave nearby so if you're good at using the dog then you'll be fine.
The dog actually has to be level 3 and alive to heal off a camp, and camps have this invisible triangle(?) AoE attack that takes one hit off the dog unless you put it behind them just right.
Skadi be4 this nerf was always easy af. Just hit your abilties and ult them. Now she takes skill to use because her dog can't become invincible when you press 4. Idk about you but I never could tell when someone had a good skadi because all skadi's did the same stuff, Now I can look at what a skadi does and see if their a good skadi. Better yet I can ask a friend: How did they use their dog? then I know if they're a good skadi or not.
It's very easy to see a good or bad Skadi based on how they're using the dog. A very easy spot for a bad Skadi is if they're in a tight 1v1 against someone and they don't send out the full hp dog because they're either A. too panicked to send him out or B. think he won't be helping the fight if I spend the extra 0.5-2 seconds targeting the enemy.
Another one, not recalling the dog and just letting it get hit.
Personally after the nerf nothing has really changed for me in how I play Skadi, because like I said we adapt but I'll still advocate for a rework of the nerf.
