In overgrowth, there’s a number of characters that can ‘backdoor’ the sentry,
by jumping the opponents ledge by mid thrall. The only defense someone really has to deal with in this situation is the thumper turret, since dodging the turret shots is fairly easy. There are a fairly large amount of characters that can make this jump, including Mellka, Bennedict, Thorn, ISAC, Kleese, and more.
Do you guys consider this cheating? Personally, I don’t necessarily think so, since it adds a third lane essentially and can aid in a push, although I think that it needs to be modified slightly.
I think the best fix for the Marquis and backdooring exploits would be, granting the sentry immunity unless being attacked by minions, this way, a Kleese or Bennedict can’t sneak around and just take out your sentry unnoticed, along with Marquis, but if you are indeed pushing, you can gain additional spots to help in. For example, as Mellka, I was able to help my team come back from a 92-50 deficit in the final two minutes to win by taking down the shield from this backdoor area. while my teammates rushed the sentry. After they all had died, the sentry was at 3/50, and I was able to rush the turret, sacrificing my life to destroy it and win the game off player score
