Initial kills will give the reg team the edge, 1500dmg from level 1 is istakill for most demigod that are not 100% healed
No, that's not true. First off, 1500 damage if crap if everyone gets + 1200 from items, second, don't get that freaking low on health.
They don't need to expose themself, they just need to harrass and stay close to their towers, wait for someone to go below 1500, kill him and own the other team that is now in minority
If they don't expose themselves then they aren't going to be getting any kills, and enemy DGs shouldn't be taking any damage outside of snipes. I think it's pretty well established that snipe sucks for pure harrassment.
If you see him lay down mines yes, otherwise ther's no way to tell, plus he can trown mines at you as granades and ther's no way to avoid that too
Or you could not be retarded and go in front of your reinforcements. Let them take the brunt of the mines low level. If you are scared of flags without creeps, buy some observation wards for all of 75 gold. Plus if they are dropping mines, that's great. That's less mana to snipe with.
You have to be very fast to heal up at the first snipe, and if they are coordinated enough (=voice chat) you have no time for potions no metter how fast you are
5 snipes should not insta-kill anyone who is prepared for it from full/high health. The snipe itself takes 2 or three seconds to go off. If you see a regulus preparing to snipe you, or you are low on health in general, use a healing potion.
This really isn't that difficult.
