Ok now i know im not that great of a player but this is one of the few match ups that i really really have trouble with.
Pretty basic pub game to start however later on i end up laning against Broodmother and Lion and i get completely dominated utterly.
As far as i know about lion he can spam impale every single time its on cd and as long as he drains mana from YOUR ranged creep he never runs out. What the hell do you do against him? I tried everything i could think of at the time but everytime something would start to work he would just impale me and start raping.

I normally wouldn't post asking for help buy i am seriously at a loss as to what to do, Please remember when giving recomendations that i do play mostly pub games so calling for a gank everytime im in trouble isn't really an option.

fyi it is just a 13 minute replay i quit after about my fifth death having not been able to figure out a way to deal with him and having to deal with a fed Broodmother.

  • Don't play against that lane as Huskar
  • Get Sentry wards earlier (have a chicken ferry them to you)
  • Admit that you were up against a very powerful lane, made even more powerful because pubs can't counter it

slow + stun lanes are always very deadly.  Especially with spider's constant slow.

As a solo, it's pretty suicidal to attempt Lion + brood.  U'll need to ride tower and CS what you can.  Dart into range as creeps die to get exp, maybe hide in trees to leech exp.

If you are looking to counter a slow + stun lane, LoA would be my first pick.  Having a good babysit hero will somewhat nullify a good killer lane.

Sents are a good idea, but you will need to maintain lane dominance so that your ward doesn't get destroyed.

Most pubs will tell you to fuck off if you ask to switch lanes right away, but it never hurts to ask.

Thanks for the great replies, next time ill be sure to ask for a switch or get a powerful laning hero to come help. I had thought that i wouldve stood a chance since as Huskar i have pretty good laning power but apparently i was wrong for this particular match up.

Here is not such a good replay. I have the similar problem, I was laning as zeus vs lion. He impale/drained me. I had no mana to harass him and lost the lane due to his finger.
I think lion should be nerfed asap. At least so he can't drain and impale at the same time.

just laned as clinkz vs lion mid, lion needs a buff asap

talking about early laning
if he uses drain, meens he has no or small hex, which meens he's got no disable
plus big cooldown on impale and less than average damage from attacks

only early game (short)
