Once double port is gone it will become much easier to fight locks on that map don't sweat it he is just cheesing the mechanics.
anything else than f mages gets raped by warriors .. with ease .
Ohh i´m replying here just because he said ´´It's just frustrating because i'm pretty sure i'm better than that lock. And knowing that he won because of environment just gets to me´´ ..
Just because a warrior can counter almost every action made by a warlock doesn´t mean you´re better .. on that map it looks actually that he was smarter than you

I also play a warlock, and i could have 1v1'd a warrior on that map without abusing one of my class mechanics.
I didn't say i knew i could beat him because my class is stronger. I said that because i know i could have sat in his same position and won against me face to face without multi-porting.
The demonology pet is a great source of damage for demonology warlocks, if it was too easy to get rid of it, it would be useless.
In case you couldn't tell, I'm being sarcastic.
The portal is really strong on the blade's edge map, sure, but at the same time all melee benefit greatly from maps such as the undercity map with a tiny LoS object in the middle that you can run over, alone it's nearly impossible to get away from say a Warrior with all their gap closers.
Also, the arena maps weren't designed for 1v1, even though some fights end up that way, you're meant to have assistance by several others.

Heroic leap to the ramp and you are 2 seconds away to be in charge range.

I've actually come out ahead in this sort of situation before on two separate occasions.
Fight near his portal. I've actually had the match come to the point where I just sat on his portal for a few minutes, with him waiting on bottom and not engaging until the portal disappeared. Granted, the lock was stupid for letting that happen, but it ending up granting me the win. It is still a lopsided battle, but it can be pulled off.
Plus, like i've said, i wasn't THAT focused on winning. This didn't go on for too long before i just said fuck it and let him win. It was at a low MMR and we were just CQ capping, so i wasn't too upset or regretful on letting him win. If he wanted +90 rating and 180 CQ points THAT badly to where he had to play the way he did, then he can have the win.
The warlock had a pretty big advantage over you. I personally dont think theres alot you could do other than leap up, but as far as i know the cd on teleporter is far shorter than the leap.
