Yes, but we all know how much calculations and averages mean ;) I haven't
hit with me thunderfires more than once in the past few rounds... they DID
one time blow the head clean off a phantom titan in a tournament our
gaming club held last year... it was agasint my opponent who i had the
most trouble beatin, but i won handly in that one... i was rather happy
about beating him, more so than i was about winning the tournament :)

I remeber seeing it in a Q&A or FAQ a while ago... it doesn't happen all
the time, but it made sense since they are literally anchored in the
ground i don't see how they could dodge a web, etc...

I've noticed doomweavers have the best effectiveness blocking LOS or
going for artillery like goliaths and thunderfires, or IG stuff...
