Just wondering, since I can't tell what are really exploits OBVIOUSLY. When the enemy picks a general characters, cloaks into middle, quickly grabs gold mine and cooldown flag, is that an exploit? What about if you are attacking an assassin, and instead of running all the way back into your base while having an assassin chase after you, you cloak into your own base, is that an exploit? Or does the exploit just come in when you are portal grabbing with spells like Oculus and Vamp? The answer better be all the above are exploits otherwise you guys are just confusing me.
Idk I used to think those were all cheap, exploiting tactics. But.. now with occulus, that's 2 generals that can do that with ease. Both have their strengths and weaknesses.. erebus can mist when he does it and he doesn't have to pick cloak to do it successfully.. occulus has the chain to get down towers.. w/e. Plus any other general can get cloak.
It's possible to counter with more than 1 character, and the map was made with that short range there. I think it's intentional that you can jump over it even with cloak / warpstone. Just another tactic.
