I just keep losing to petal in non-draft matches, and I can't do anything about it. Are there any strats to counter it?

For a second, I thought this was SilverBeard complaining about another "OP" hero again lol.

Petal heavily relies on her pets most of the time, so if you have AOE abilities, you can hit both Petal and her pets at the same time and kill them off quickly. Another thing is that she excels at prolonged fights, so she can easily kite a Krul or other non bursty heroes so you want to kill her ASAP if she is the carry on the team. Alpha and Baron have a lot of splash and are great and countering Petal. If you are playing Krul, Reim, or other non bursty heroes, try setting up an abmush in their tri-bush with your laner and steal some of their farm(Don't forget to check for scout traps).

Adding to what Maximus said I also like CP Vox & Taka against her. Petal comes with built in targets for your bounce for Vox, and Taka fits in well for the reasons Maximus already outlined, the burst. Fortress can also work well because his Truth of the Tooth can get past front line defenses and on to Petal quickly.

Joule stun would probably by pass them especially if CP and a quick zap and she's down. Good luck though Petal is a nightmare for kiting done well especially if your squishy

Petal is best at dealing sustained damage, and is very weak against bursty heroes. AOE abilities can be used to kill her pets quickly. Crowd control is also very useful as her ult can be countered by a stun or a silence, as wells as her Trampoline!. My best tip would be to get your whole team to focus her.

Petal actually has a 60% win rate, so there probably won't be much you can do about it. However, I do recommend you build a Fountain and an Aegis, or just something with lots of shield. Now, this is for CP Petal. WP Petal is very unpopular and is not a big deal. Always try to kill her munions first.
BUT WAIT. You can't take her on yourself (unless your Krul). You'll need at least one other person. A ranged hero may be better though because she can just use her B and jump away. Together she will be easy.
Hold on don't leave yet. In team fights, it is crucial to take her down first. Don't just ignore her! Once she's down, the fight will go your way. If she's not down, don't group up. You want her ult to affect the least amount of people as possible.
Kk gud luck cuz u still gonna get rekt.

One day I hope you'll realize that being good at the game is not about the hero, but about the player. Think on that, and try not to be salty all the time, kay?

Vox taka fortress all heroes are completely useless against petal just accept getting your *** wooed by the onion by the way maximus it has a lot about the hero if the hero is broken then it's the hero not the players fault I play good with some heroes but other heroes I am bad there are some heroes with kits that make no sense heroes that got a lot of unnecessary perks and some you can't even get closer I hope you understand
