    I'm happy to see the classic mid heroes back

    бородатый лесной болван

      Repel had already been unpurgable for quite a time, so diffusal didn't do much about it either

      MM.Ugh Brock Hall

        I'm curious to see how Valve will handle the Omniknight situation. He is such a weird hero, being uber strong in pubs, but niche (working with heroes like dusa) in pros. He would get worse in pubs if he got another buff to help him be less niche in pros, but you couldn't really remove anything from him either because that would put him back down into pubs only.

                  @sippy bottle tp trick -
                  lets say DK mid have empty bottle, someone (say lion) from fountain TP to mid,
                  DK give the empty bottle to Lion, the bottle become full again.


                    @mikeecs dat still work dud, different things


                      I'm surprised Zeus got a shot in the spotlight for this post over Puck, QoP, and Death Prophet...


                        @Brock Hall Omni is the most banned hero and 7th most picked hero in pro play. Don't think that counts as "niche" :p

                          That's likely to change though. Remember, Bane was there like two tournaments ago. My comments presupposed that his popularity is fleeting.

                                Zeus indeed. Being the shit midplayer I am if I very rarely have to go mid I just pick Zeus regardless of enemy teams. Result: 100% win rate on Zeus. (well 5 game only, but again I hardly ever go mid).

                                  :thinking: dendi sf is a joke


                                    Im not a fan boy of Dendi or anything but you have to have a certain level of respect for someone who sticks it out with the same team through the good and the bad. Lots of players change teams like changing underwear.


                                      No death prophet?


                                        DP is a broken ass hero.

                                            Dota is dead and pure cancer now who cares about the midlanes gaben is just gonna keep eating McChickens with the money from your pockets untill he dies.

                                                You can have a D in math and still know the sum of 2 and 2. I'm not the most skilled player and make a lot of mistakes, but that doesn't mean I am unable to be correct.

                                                  Where's my kunkka mid? i'm a sad man indeed.


                                                    Where is qop and puck ?

                                                      @Slippy if Dendi moved on from Navi a few years ago he would have been in a really good position. His choice to stay in Na'vi was noble and stupid


                                                        I know I commented on this post the other day, but I also wanted to note that Tinker and Storm Spirit came out strong after 7.07 changes to Mana/Intelligence and the introduction to Kaya.

                                                        Weebs with few screws loose

                                                          fathom, they strong, but countered by zeus agha + tankiness,zeus do so much dmg that will melt fast, and puck or storm with early bkb will reduce effectiveness by a lot, and zeus generally is so good with eul veil kaya early game, combined with 6 armor talent at lvl 10, and even at late game facing zeus with pipe, zeus still has crazy arc lightning dmg, cd reduc talent + octarine + agha


                                                            Man it sucks to see SF back in the meta, now that Icefrog made denies so punishing. Not only does he massively outfarm the opponent, he skyrockets in levels past you. On top of that, apparently he needed a buff to Raze? I know he's easy to shut down in the laning phase and even late game (spellcaster SFs fall off pretty hard), but he makes for a really un-fun laning phase IMO.


                                                              I love the Dotabuff articles, but this is the second you write that omni is stronger because of the diffu change in regards to purging repel. This is wrong, repel wasn't purgable since 7.00. Keep up the good work :)
