Player Description and Analysis Edit

Oh so you wanna play passive? You want to play objective control freak? Or do you want to just surprise your enemies with lots of bombs? Well then the Cicada Commando is the bug for you! Waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike, the cicada waits to lash out with a barrage of traps and basic attacks. His passive makes him super stealthy. Now you can sneak up on your enemies and unleash devastating attacks. His Commando strike gives him the ability to do some nice AoE damage, and stealth him, giving him an escape or an initiation. Cicada's traps, c4 explosives and grenades all do massive damage and if executed correctly, could spell doom for the enemies.

Playing the Cicada requires a passive gameplay style. This makes him hard to master compared to other more simpler heroes. Patience and prediction is required for you to successfully damage your enemies with your explosives, and the stealth passive must not be wasted. To many, the reliance on Cicada's passive, slow basic attacks, and traps might make him look weak, but in the hands of a master tactician, he is a formidable foe. Planning and thinking is required to make good use of the Cicada. So when you play Cicada who will you be? Will you be the Master Tactician, patient and wise? Playing Cicada is like playing a game of chess. Strategy is key with this hero, and if you are patient with him, your victory will be secured.
