Effectively using Heroes
Posted on 6/24/2008 at 4:26 PM by Sir Hugh
Blatant7 has written a guide for players relatively new or really rusty on the utilization of faction Heroes.

"I've played a lot of matches online where people have misused their hero, and thus gotten them killed. So I've thrown together this short guide that attempts to tell you how to use heroes effectively in 3 steps..."


The guide can be found here.
