Pretty tense hover mirror. Shows that you can't use Thunderbird advantage unless you have a speed advantage or have the enemy cornered.

I think Mace is somewhat OP in the hover mirror.
There is little reason to make Scalpels as they barely have an edge when skirmishing against Maces let alone all the ways you can negate that advantage with Daggers, Halberds by distracting the Scalpels or using an area cloaker to close the distance.

I think the mace/scalpel relationship is one of role overlap.

One is a perfectly accurate skirmisher with near-riot aoe. Another is an almost-skirmisher range (enough range that it can sometimes kill domi!) perfectly accurate riot.

One has slightly more range, one has alpha, but these differences are pretty niche, the designs too close. Kinda like Blackdawn vs Brawler were before the latter became an artillery gunship called Nimbus.

I feel the recent Mace stats buffs were mistake - it might have been more comfortable with a minor cost decrease instead.
