post your best 2v2 hero pairs here
drow+almost anyone >.>
bane + whatever
TC + TC
There is already one topic like that -_-
Idk how you can actually quantify a "best pair". It is pretty situational. :/
All the so far noted lanes are easily owned by
Abaddon & Viper, they have been strong in 6.59d but are wicked sick in 6.60.
Bane + KotL, weeee.
Doc with N'aix is quite good imo. While Doc puts Maledict, stuns and uses ward, N'aix turns on his armlet and he will eat the enemies wheter they are str/agi or int. If he wouldn't net a kill the maledict sure thing will.
Its true that 2v2 Hero combinations are very situation dependant, but i would just like to share one combination which i used a while back. It definatly isn't the best, because its easily countered, but its good in its own way and quite entertaining.
Use KotL + Necrolyte. Kotl with arcane ring, Necro with mekanism. This gives you guys 2 mana heals (Chakra magic + arcane) and 2 HP heals (Mekanism and Death Pulse), note that necro also would have sadist for even more mana Basically win with a push strategy in <20 minutes.
bane + anything that moves.
Mirana (fave/best) or Viper (great solo) mid, Tide/Rexxar forest (stunning ultimate). Won countless 2v2 battles with this, including a tournament.
Bane remains a prime choice of course, but kinda boring.
Omniknight is just extremely annoying.
ALWAYS go forest in 2v2.
Lately, more heroes have shown to be potentual forest heroes, some of which are used in normal games but doesn't do so well in 2v2. These include:
N'aix, Enigma, Troll (farm shitloads), Terrorblade and many others.
If you have the extra gold (I usually play with this), get HotD and dominate a creep. Get Quelling ASAP then, at least if you're melee. If you think you can manage without lifesteal, don't get HotD.
If you don't have the extra gold, your choice of heroes will be limited, and your farming will be slow...
That said, versus inexperienced (pub) players, I've won with Pit Lord and Ezalor, and even Vengeful and Techies.
Finally, you might want to get Diffusal, Linkens, Hood or BKB depending on the situation, namely Omniknight, nukers that gets dual Arcane Rings, stunner combos or harrasers.
Basically good 2on2 heroes:
Viper (lane dominance, 2 slows, carrypotential)
Bane (2 disables, a pure dmg nuke, a skill to get rid of a carry's dmg).
Basically you always need at least one disable, but it can also work with a massive amount of slows (Viper+Huskar is effective even without disable f/ex).
A plan to win is to get a lane-dominant hero like Viper and a jungler, so you have the advantage of a sololane but won't get raped on it.
Venge & Drow
Venom & Viper
Bane + Rhasta since the Rhasta's ultimate can hit the enemy even if he's sleeping. Count how long he will be hitten by those things..
Also, Voodoo has 13sec cd, Shackles 16sec and Sleep 20sec so they would be cooled again pretty shortly afterwards.
Separate names with a comma.
