    Hey guys !

    There has been quite a few discussions on the split topic lately, one being @Cornep thread.
    As usual, I tried to come up with an idea that could solve this :D

    Feel free to comment and suggest improvement.

    Coward

    160 Mythium - 40 Income

    Stats
    |---HP: 1800
    |---DPS: 44
    . |---Damage: 55
    . |---Att. Speed: 0.85
    |---Range: 450 (ranged)
    |---Mana: 15
    |---Spawning position: Wave creep spawn (middle of wave)

    Abilities
    Target the weaks (15 mana)
    Target the fighter type of lowest cost on the lane.
    For each fighter of that type, deals 20 Pierce damage to all fighters of targeted type.

    This ability can't target summons units.

    Another way to counter split would be create a mercenary who "attracts"the first two lines units and put it on the same line. Like this, there will be no longer split ;)

    But I really like your idea even if I would suggest to have this for 60 or 80 mythium rather than 160. 160 seems really too expensive for only countered split.

    Actually, I do have a mercenary that pull units in progress :p

    But I think it would not be as effective as this one against split.

    The thing is : this being cheaper would be either :
    not effective against split, as it would not damage sllit unit enough, and then you would need to buy 2 of them
    Or, it would be too strong, even against not splitting build like zooka backline etc.

    And I think that lategame, where split is really strong, using 160 mythium to get wave creep target main army is worth.
