                  Still feel like MK is just a flavor for the moment. Saw the same thing happen when Silencer was brought into the game. Teams abused his power, then they figured out how to beat him and he has struggled ever since.

                                    Pls dont nerf spectre, lol she is my favorite hero


                                      The problem is every roamer in the game can be beaten with proper warding, sentries and dust except Monkey King. Tree dance has a 3 second cd and costs zero mana. And unless you have flying vision, Kotl, WR and beastmaster, youre screwed. And after wrecking your laning stage he transitions too easily into a right click team fighter. You just cannot fight inside his Ultimate. There's no reason NOT to pick him. And thats bad game design

                                            is too short (minimum is 6 characters)


                                              make support great again!
                                              now most of pos 4 supp is basically a non-supp hero but played in supp position (e.g riki,lina,weaver,silencer and now MK) even bounty hunter and riki is not supposedly to played as support but yeah i played them as supp.
                                              i started to think that a pure supportive heroes like dazzle,cm,jakiro,appa and phoenix are losing their ground in the recent meta and its not rare that we've seen only 1 supp strat in professional scene.


                                                MK has already been nerfed 4 times and he is no longer viable as a carry hero. He also has been nerfed to the point where he isn't even very effective as a solo ganker. So, now we are left playing him as a support with team ganking/scouting ability. Which ultimately leads to little farm or exp due to the amount of time tree dancing as a scout. That is why he is so effective in the PRO scene, because they actually have coordination.

                                                If MK is nerfed any more, he won't be viable even in a support role. Why even add him to the game?

                                                      Why did Abaddon get nerfed in the previous 2 patches? This result is the proof he is far from inbalanced.

                                                        Where can I find statistics about how many heroes were picked and what heroes never got picked?

                                                        The Robot Devil

                                                          MK is fine now, for the pro scene, still think a little nerf to his ultimate is needed. Just up the cooldown a bit, down.

                                                          The vision thing is tricky, its most of the reason he's playable and the tree jumping is unique. I'd look for more heroes to use/counter it in the near future because the game needs it.

                                                          I like MK tho, he's fun to watch and play.

                                                            If you put him in the ganking role (which he most often is as described by @manushka) he won't be getting the farm you say he will. In order to get him into the core position you have to give him time to farm or give him the kill instead of the assist, neither of which work well with his early game timing because he is too weak to be given more than 4th priority farm.

                                                            Jingo mastery is already basically useless unless he is a carry, his q is the weakest crit in the game and his ult is as effective as he is tanky. It won't take long to learn to counterpick him in pro scene.


                                                              So many pople are active posters here, but never on the forum


                                                                Why am I so noob! Damn, I cant carry them to victory.


                                                                  VS is nice. just swap him outside of his ulti and its over :)

                                                                  Brünk Hüll

                                                                    @Wobbel is swap far enough to grab him from the middle?

                                                                    Brünk Hüll

                                                                      @Wobbel never mind, circle is 780 radius and VS swap at lvl 1 is 700, so it's pretty easy to end that yeah.

                                                                      Brünk Hüll

                                                                        Cptn BoogleBottoms

                                                                            Buff earth spirit please
