1. Heroes Lt. Morales Works Well With

In this section, we will look at the heroes that work particularly well with Lt. Morales.

1.1. Raynor

Raynor Portrait Raynor benefits greatly from Stim Drone Icon Stim Drone, which provides him with a significant attack speed buff. Due to the fact that Lt. Morales is a ranged Support Hero, Raynor will usually be within reach of Healing Beam Icon Healing Beam, which is another strong argument why they complement each other very well.

1.2. Sgt. Hammer

Sgt. Hammer Portrait Sgt. Hammer's limited mobility and her slow but powerful Basic Attacks make her a perfect target for Lt. Morales' Stim Drone Icon Stim Drone, especially while she is in Siege Mode Icon Siege Mode.

1.3. The Butcher

The Butcher Portrait The Butcher's strong Basic Attacks combined with his ability to lock an individual enemy Hero down with Lamb to the Slaughter Icon Lamb to the Slaughter has incredible synergy with Lt. Morales' Stim Drone Icon Stim Drone. But even if their Heroic Abilities are on cooldown, Lt. Morales is a formidable Support for aggressive melee Assassins like the Butcher thanks to her exceptional single-target protection capabilities.

1.4. Sonya

Sonya Portrait There is hardly any other Hero that deals as much damage if left unattended as Sonya. Thus, it is no surprise that she usually becomes the enemy team's main focus target. Lt. Morales' outstanding single-target protection provides enough support for Sonya to survive long enough to wreak havoc within the enemy lines. Furthermore, Stim Drone Icon Stim Drone is an excellent ability to boost Sonya's combat performance even more.

2. Heroes Lt. Morales Is Countered By

In this section, we will look at the heroes that counter Lt. Morales particularly well.

2.1. Illidan

Illidan Portrait Illidan is a swift melee Assassin that needs to be a high priority target, otherwise he will wreak havoc in your team's backline. The best way to shut Illidan down is to either stun or silence him, which makes Lt. Morales quite a poor choice against him, because her only source of crowd control, Displacement Grenade Icon Displacement Grenade, is rather hard to land against mobile Heroes like Illidan.

2.1.1. How To Play Against Illidan

Illidan should have an easy time dodging Displacement Grenade Icon Displacement Grenade, which is why you should try to wait until he is either slowed or rooted by one of your teammates before using it. If Illidan gets close to you, make sure to let your allies know about it by pinging on yourself. Furthermore, cast Safeguard Icon Safeguard on yourself to minimise some of Illidan's damage.

2.2. Nova

Nova Portrait Nova poses a serious threat to fragile Heroes such as Lt. Morales, as they are perfect targets for her Snipe Icon Snipe. If Lt. Morales positions herself poorly and does not keep an eye on Nova's whereabouts, she is likely going to fall very quickly.

2.2.1. How To Play Against Nova

Try to predict Nova's movement and always position yourself behind other Heroes, Minions, or Mercenaries to avoid her burst damage. Furthermore, keep in mind that friendly Structures, such as Walls, Forts, or Keeps, provide protection against Nova's Triple Tap Icon Triple Tap Heroic Ability.

2.3. Tyrael

Tyrael Portrait Tyrael is a very uncomfortable opponent for Lt. Morales. He is quite hard to take down and has mutliple gap-closers which allow him to chase Lt. Morales very efficiently.

2.3.1. How To Play Against Tyrael

Keeping a healthy distance to Tyrael is of the essence, especially if he chose Judgment Icon Judgment at Level 10, which is one of the most dangerous initiating abilities in the game. If Tyrael chases you, use Displacement Grenade Icon Displacement Grenade to knock him away, but keep an eye on his El'Druin's Might Icon El'Druin's Might. If his sword is still visible, wait until it vanishes, as otherwise Tyrael can simply reactivate El'Druin's Might to quickly reappear next to you.
