For late game then use warp shard. Anyhow lategame his ulti is easy to counter as almost any hero (int can lockbox themselves too).

Warp Shard can rescue you, but not for sure. Lockbox doesn't help because they wait for you and you are surrounded when comming out = death.

Name me these easy counters pls! Explosive is too weak, scan counters smoke, Shrapnel only last 3 seconds. There are few heroes which can beat these strong minions, for example Vorpal ulti+surge (what a waste), Vergil ulti (the same). You can almost kill a Drake with it!

DST works well. A warp shard can be used to dodge the ulti projectile completely, or be used to tele across cliffs and trees, which buys enough time so the ulti wears off. Having teammates or any blink spell works too.

 

In terms of spell counters, all blinks and pseudo blinks are counters (Virgil, Cyprus, Darpa, Micro, Zera, Biotron burrow), all sprints are counters (Sprint talent, nova, lord zyrkhan). Full counters such as Shadow vortex, Cain Q, Cow wall and Natural hero counters such as Erek the man and toxi with DST

 

Btw, smokescreen is supposed to be popped on bio if he has elixir, then you blink/cloak for guaranteed escape. Does nobody remember smokescreen mechanics now?

SHM and Nitrogen Retrofit is a good counter if you have the suitable hero for that combo.

 

Shm and nitro will not work well in general. It is not cost efficient as an intentional bio counter; it does help if you have a hero who would already get those items, but those items on their own are not going to fully mitigate bio ulti damage, especially vs a proficient bio.

In my opinion, Biotron's final needs a nerf early game only. Late game its more of a distraction or inconvience (unless your way behind).

I believe Biotrons minions give +400% movement speed during buff? I think it shud be

Lv1 CD: 60 ; Lower PR (physical resistance) 10% (Same) ; but biotron minions gain +300% movement speed (100% less than current)

Lv2 CD: 45 Lower PR 20% (Same) ; But biotron minions gain 375% Movement Speed (25% less than current)

Lv3 CD: 30 Lower PR 30% (Same) ; But biotrons minions gain 450% Movement Speed (50% more than current)

Could also make them have 8% Biotron's Max Hp but 50% Spell resist (Giving AA a chance to at least kill them) but idk.

I say this because majority of heros have low movement speed at beginning but some heros gain movement speed or items that can counter the civs or its just such a late game that they have little effect. Early game for example, if your raynor, GG to you, but late game raynor can have warp shard or phase cloak or Chilling artifact, ect. that can counter the minions

 

Counters to Biotron: Impunity (Talent: Early game) (Reduce all damage u take by 10) This talent counters all summons early game since summons usually do around 15 - 25 damage limiting to 5 - 15 damage only.

Chilling Artifact (Item: Always) Dark Steel Titan (Item: Sometimes works)

Nitrogen + Super heated (Item: Works if your not slowed to begin with)

Shrapnel (Item: Works Slightly [3 seconds usually isn't enough])

Warp Shard: (Warp decently well)

Phase Cloak (Works very well if your not being chased)

Phantom Menace (Item: Decent Depends if you started running or your already caught by slows).

 

There is also a hero that MAJORLY counters Biotron and that would be Hybrid.Maar, His passive makes biotrons minions have 0 Sight so he is forced to be engaged on the unit he finals the entire time or else he deals no damage at all. Toxi also is pretty good at countering biotron with his armor.

Heros that counter Biotron: Units that can lower enemy movement speed passively or around himself, Teleports, and massive AoE damage.

 

Also, smoke screen is very counterable. -True sight- -boundary scanner- And boundary scanner actually cost Less than smoke (Cost 40 3 total for 120)

Why not?

Impact dial is a slight counter, but since its not instant (0.5 secs) and lower distance that warp shard, you don't really gain much distance. You can't pass terrain either like cliffs. Although it is decent counter if you are able to use it as u get finaled by biotron. (Meaning you used it to escape before the minions surround you). Impact dial works but has its limits.
