Torb Community Questions:
MrStealYoBeef - What would you consider is the sneakiest torb turret you've ever used on an enemy team? How effective was it?
SonicShadow - What made you pick Torb in the current meta where people disagree with Torb? What separates a good Torb from a bad one? How does someone use Torb on Attack?
L chris L - When do you decide to throw down a lvl 1 turret asap or to strategically go for lvl 2?
Bioshrimp - How do you deal with haters?
InfiniteNo1 - Are there any skins that give you or turret any camo/visual advantage?
Reef - How does dive comp effect your torb play?
Egwollz - Are there any specific "pro" strategies regarding utilizing and deploying armor packs for yourself and your teammates?
Switchfox - Any particular heroes that give Torb trouble in 1v1s? How much does keeping turret up 100% of the time matter? What is a good hero to duo-queue with if I want to climb as Torb?
VirtualDJ - Is it worthwhile to put a turret near enemy spawn at start of match on certain maps versus having the protected turret toward the back line from the start?
Tyserian - When should you treat your turret as:
An Extra DPS source: putting it behind a shield (Classic Dorado First Engagement).
A Back-Line Defender: placement in a protected spot that can only shoot people after they've reached a point (Numbani Point A Small Room).
Flanker’s Protection: placement where it fires warning shots and slows down common flanking routes (Volskaya Point A High Ground).
