Mischief Best Partners

Huang Zhong: These two heroes excel in fast push strategies. Liu Shan’s passive and first and second abilities, along with his ultimate’s high damage to turrets, combined with Huang Zhong’s turret-focused abilities, can quickly destroy enemy structures. Liu Shan’s long crowd control abilities can also protect Huang Zhong well, increasing the damage enemies take within Huang Zhong’s ultimate.

Gao Jianli: Liu Shan and Gao Jianli have excellent synergy. Liu Shan’s multiple crowd control abilities can initiate team fights, disrupt enemy structures, and protect Gao Jianli, who can deal massive burst damage with his ultimate, making them a powerful combination for initiating fights and diving enemy turrets.

Combos: Use the first ability to catch enemies, followed by the second ability to control them, allowing teammates to secure kills.

Mischief Counters

  1. Liu Shan struggles when isolated, so he can be easily beaten by burst assassins.
  2. The agile Diao Chan’s true damage makes it difficult for Liu Shan to control her.

Tips for playing against Liu Shan:

  1. Without his abilities, Liu Shan is useless in team fights, so avoid wasting abilities on him.
  2. Liu Shan has strong escape potential, so don’t commit all your abilities to chase him or you might get counter-killed.

Mischief Team Fight Strategy

During team fights, Mischief should initiate with his first ability to absorb damage and control the enemy’s main damage dealers. Activating his ultimate in the middle of the enemy team will deal damage to multiple enemies.

As Mischief has two crowd control abilities, he can also protect allied damage dealers from enemy assassins. When an enemy assassin engages, knock them up and control them while cooperating with teammates to secure the kill.

How to Play Mischief (Gameplay Strategy)

As a pro gamer, leveraging Liu Shan’s unique abilities and playstyle is crucial for securing victories. Here are some gameplay strategies for early, mid, and late game phases:

Early Game:

  1. Focus on farming and securing experience in your lane. This will allow you to scale and unlock your crowd control abilities as quickly as possible.
  2. Use Liu Shan’s first ability, Overcharge, to poke and trade with your opponents effectively, while mitigating incoming damage.
  3. Coordinate with your jungler for potential ganks, using your crowd control abilities to lock down enemies and secure kills.
  4. Keep an eye on the map and be ready to assist your teammates when needed. Your crowd control skills can turn the tide of skirmishes in your favor.

Mid Game:

  1. Start looking for opportunities to group with your team and take objectives, such as turrets and neutral monsters. Your passive, Magnetic Barrier, will help you deal significant damage to structures.
  2. Initiate team fights with your first ability, Overcharge, followed by your second ability, Robo Smash, to control enemies and set up kills for your team.
  3. Keep your carries safe by peeling for them with your crowd control abilities, and provide vision around key objectives to prepare for potential fights.
  4. Split push when necessary, as Mischief’s passive and ultimate ability, Take it for a Spin, can quickly take down structures.

Late Game:

  1. Prioritize sticking with your team and looking for favorable engagements. Your crowd control abilities are crucial in late-game team fights.
  2. Focus on controlling the enemy’s primary damage dealers in team fights, using your first and second abilities to lock them down and help your team secure kills.
  3. Activate your ultimate, Take it for a Spin, in the middle of the enemy team to deal AOE damage and apply pressure on their backline.
  4. Maintain vision control around key objectives, such as Shadow Overlord and Tempest Dragon and be prepared to contest or secure them with your team.

By following these gameplay strategies and utilizing Mischief’s full potential throughout the early, mid, and late game, you’ll be well on your way to dominating the battlefield and achieving victory.
