Hi guys ,I’m big fans of drow ranger I have a big problem with this hero When I pick drow ranger then people trys to pick max hero’s which are traxes counters like pa,tiny or guard which can blink fast and remove me Other wise I don’t have a good reaction when they blink for example I’m in a team fight and I’m not at top of the teamfight I silences 3enemys and everything is good but suddenly a crazy guard or tiny blink to me and harass me or kill me and I’m sure they just come to kill me no other hero Plz tell what to do I tried to buy a blink to blink fast when they come to me but it’s really hard because they are in fogs or over trees where I can’t see them or they come from behind Tiny jump and toss fast then necro Dagon or use ultimate from far and finish me

Hello and welcome!

As Drow Ranger it's very important to position yourself safely and to not show your position at the beginning of a fight.

You have to check what heroes from the enemy team can jump on you and also what items could enable them to lock you down (e.g. Tiny, Axe, Abyssal Blade, Blink Dagger, etc.)

Try to allow your team to initiate the fight and give the enemies a few seconds to react and to engage in the fight with your team. Afterwards, when you can clearly see the positioning of all the enemy heroes, you can decide if you can jump in and help or not.

Play safely and smart, use positioning to your advantage! Having a strong support to keep you alive is also very useful for heroes like Drow Ranger (e.g. Oracle or Vengeful Spirit.

Good luck!
