broodmother mid way too weak

how to manage mid broodmother?

enemy mid often has AOE skills, then whould I go for max passive first?

or just give 1 point to web and max Q and E?

and when i diving tower, if my spiderites and I hitting the hero, does the tower hit me or randomly?

I tried to slow using spiderites and chase the enemy, finishing down using Q, but creeps and spiders always block my way.

so I tried phase boots, but the AS becomes hopeless.

how to manage this helpless mid broodmother?

A lot of points into incapacitating bite early with pushing, harassing, and rune control with webs. Get only two points into webs early and focus on your bite. Do not try to gank without the proper rune of team support and always give priority to better non-countered carries than yourself when getting last hits on kills. Remember, three things can counter everything the Broodmother can do: True Strike, True Sight, and Purges.

When tower diving with any hero, when the tower concentrates on hitting you, try to deny any friendly unit. They do not have to be deniable, just try and the tower will shift focus.

Broodmother is literally one of the best if not THE best mid heroes in the game (for public matches of course, not professional ones)! Practice makes perfect. I have a guide I released today on how to play as a mid Broodmother so check it out I think it will help you a lot. I have 200+ wins as her so I know what I am talking about and I think you will find success if you use this guide. Here it is:

// Broodmother's only role in mid is mostly assisting and staying at her web ;-;

I disagree. As brood mid, I can usually get at least 3 kills and T2 towers by 15 min. View my comment below.

Level 1: web
level 2: spiders (if not against hard counter)
level 3: spiders (if you went for spiders level 2)
level 4-25: see what the situation requires of you

Start with webs level 1 100% of the time. You usually want to get spiders level 2 (unless you can't play against counterpicks with AOE). If you're against something like tinker/juggernaut, you can bait them to use their AOE spells and then go on them with spiders. Make hotkeys for all spiders, spiderlings, spiderites, broodmother and broodmother+spiders. If you're going for the spiders build, don't level incap bite to more than level 1 before you have q and w maxed. (maybe not always neccesary to have webs lvl 4 before incap bite level 2).

When you're all under the tower and attacking a hero, I believe the tower prioritizes the closest target hitting the hero.

Don't rely on spiderlings to slow heroes. Incap bite has a more powerful slow.

Make sure you have 1 or 2 sentry wards at the start of the game (you or your support can buy them). Use quelling blade/ tangoes to get rid of enemy sentries.

If you're having problems with spiders blocking you, you need to improve your micro. Make sure to usually have some space between brood and her spiders.
