Ghost Scepter should be mentioned as a Bloodseeker counter - even if he starts hitting hard, you activate Ghost Scepter and still TP away... :-)

Can you add about Troll Warlord? I think, he's one of newbie favorite hero now.
+ 1 great guide, very nice, so awesome, much learn.

Last thing- he is countered hard by stuns and burst damage. I think leshrac with a Eul's is pretty good, bc he can just sit there. Lion is good, earth shaker, etc.

But I understand you aren't updating it. :(

I like the guide! I have one piece of criticism though, if you don't mind. The bloodseeker is a bit outdated. Blood rite is good for rune control. Also, his thirst scales much better to 25% now instead of 0%. Another thing to note is that I generally go yasha basher on him, which kind of ruins the tp. He also is not a solo ganker- he ganks lanes to catch someone out with blood rite and rupture. I think that the counter is there, but it's not always a good idea to man fight him unless you are ruptured. Also, his lane presence is very mean with blood rage. He can have incredible sustain. I believe he is going to be picked up a lot at ti5

No. This is wrong. Sniper is, hands down, pretty weak on his own. But if he got a team that can protect him he can be extremly wrong and his late game damage can be absurd (sry Sven).
And how is a Pudge countered by a Blade Mail? Or Ursa with his ult?
Pls think about what you write before posting it.
Edit: I feel like this seems like I want to provoke you. I don't.
But things are rarely as they seem

I feel this is an appropriate guide to rant about Sniper. He is, hands down, the worst hero in this game. What counters a Sniper? Everything really. I have a hard time thinking where this hero could be good, but all i can think of is his kill stealing potential. Also, at the time of this writing, Sniper is the most played hero this month, beating out even Pudge! I shudder whenever this hero is picked on my team, and laugh maniacally when he is picked on the other team. Free food.

Whew. Sorry, I had to get that out.

EDIT: Blade Mail destroys every hero on this list.

How to kill slark:
He will always try to stay away from sight, then just buy a ****ton oof wards and place them in the common ward spots, buy dust if he goes shadowblade, try to not 2v1 him becuase he has a really good zoning ability (so unless you are playing tiny you are fu**ed).
Dont let you and your team mates feed him, always go in a group of two or try always to have a nice escape/stun/disarm

Thank you both! Didn't knew I could edit comments, and will refer to that thread for counters now.

Can you update it to the current meta? Things like including Troll Warlord, Juggernaut and Axe

For stuff regarding current meta heroes it's in this thread :

Feel free to post there. This could possibly make another guide but not right now.

Oops, only now I saw your conclusion! Ok, so no updates. New heroes then? :)
