AwesomeComps: SlowBros.

Hey guys!
It's Treeby here and I'm going to be making(Hopefully!) a few team composition guides that I nicknamed AwesomeComps. These guides will defer from other guides you will see for two reasons:

1) It is a team guide not a Naut guide

2) I will be focusing on more obscure and untried teams and team builds that still can do very well


So for today's AwesomeComp the team is Lonestar/Leon/Gnaw this team may look fairly used but just stay with me!

The Focus

The focus for this team is slow! That's right you will be running double slow on bull for Lonestar, slow on Leon's AA, and slow on Gnaw's spit. I will focus indepth on each Naut's build later on. Once you get going this setup will become extremely effective!

The Builds

Here I will give a rough build for each Naut

Build Tips

Make sure to build into slow bull as early as you can while still being able to play offensively.

Leon

Build Tips

Get tongue,boots,free hp,solar snatch right off the bat and farm. Get slow on blade early. Remember Lone's bull is focused on slowing so use your clones to help push.

Gnaw

Build Tips

Spit is only ment to slow and harass, bite will be your main damage output. Stick with Lone. Use your speed up bite as a quick get away tool or to chase down a retreating enemy.

The Game Plan

Killing

The main strategy when it comes to killing enemies is to slow enemies with spit/bull and attack when the enemy runs away Leon will tongue him back in and you will finish him. Slow will also make enemies retreat so you can push more easily.

You can also have Leon instigate with his tongue and your team can then gank the enemy. Make sure not to throw bull and spit at the same time, wait till one is done then use the other when chasing enemies to make sure they stay slowed down. Practice with your slow builds and you will find them very effective for killing but you need to stick together.

Pushing

When you get a chance to push use bull and clone on and off so that when one dies you can throw down the other so to speak. The timing won't be perfect but it's better then using the clones and bull at the same time. Stay till you are close to death with all the slow your team has retreating is much easier then it would usually be. Use that to your advantages and make your pushes count.

Defense

I will quickly cover a few tactics to use if your turrets are destroyed and you need to stop a enemy push. With Gnaw and Lone covering the base with bulls,weedlings, and spit Leon needs to backdoor the pushing enemies and attack from behind. Suddenly they are wedged in between Lone & Gnaw to one side and Leon to the other. Use slow and tongue to your advantage and you should be able to kill at least two not all three if you do it right.

Summing it Up

This has been my first AwesomeComps guide and hopefully you enjoyed it! Please note that the builds I posted are rough guidelines and I mainly want to get the point across of running slow inside your build. Feel free to leave questions/comments/critique below so I know what to do better next time :)
If I did something completely retarded which I am quite capable of doing feel free to point it out

Nice, but instead of slow bull why not go slow bubble with yuri? :)

Good point. Mainly because of the relative squishyness of Gnaw and Leon now as well as the fact that Yuri I think would go better slow/speed bubble inside a Yuri/Clunk/Skolldir comp opposed to a team comp that couldn't defend/tank as well for him

What about Skolldir? He can add slow to his throw, snare to Earthquake, and stun on punch #3. To put people even further across the map, add range to Leon's tongue and knockback to Skolldir's throw to make sure anyone who's caught by a Leon tongue gets a quick trip to a turret. Bonus points if Lonestar's waiting to pin them against it with the bull!

Wouldn't double-slow Blaze Coco be useful for this?

Coco's not a bro! Wouldn't work in SlowBROs.

I like theme teams, so this amuses me.

Guys,guys! It is just one team comp :lol:
Yes Coco would be great actually I may switch her with Gnaw because if she builds into slow blaze shizzle gets real

Slow and displacement go well together.

Lonestar / Leon / Skolldir has maximum slow and displacement, but Lonestar just doesn't seem top tier anymore. On the other hand, Lonestar will be the one the team relies on in "footsienauts" situations, when he's throwing out max range Bulls and Dynamites to chip away at the enemy.

I like that sort of team setup better than Lonestar / Leon / Gnaw.

I like this kind of guide... I would like to make one for how we play but I often lack the patience to type long post :(
