    Whats the deal with this? Ive lost so many games that were basically over because our highest networth hero refuses to buy a bkb

          People get baited into the flow of a game early and make their decisions based on those earlier skirmishes.

                People don't like buying items that win games because they aren't fun. A troll would much rather buy a satanic than a BkB cuz he gets to heal off of his victims.

                  Its a tricky item because sometimes you have to have it and sometimes is a waste of money.

                    No one want bkb, but sometimes someone need bkb. Balancing those is hard for inexperienced player (like me lol)

                                    I think I've bought BKB about three times in my last 100 games.
                                    Always seems to me there's a better option.

                                      ^with the shit stats the item gives that's probably why

                                            Bkb is situational. Pipe always seems to be the better buy since people seem to spam magic heroes these days. But if you see like... say... a Shaman, Lion, and Tinker on the enemy team, a BKB is worth the buy lol

                                            i d k

                                            I like Pipe better.

                                                  i wonder why durinng TI there is so few bkb purchased

                                                  bibotot1995

                                                    It depends on the enemy line up. There is no point buying BKB if the enemy has Bristleback or Axe.

                                                    TripleSteal-

                                                      80% of bkbs utility is coverig your missplays
                                                      the better you are, the less often u find urself in the need of a bkb purchase, same for ghosts

                                                        thats why i never buy bkb

                                                        Mafioso

                                                          in real high skill games bkb is almost always a must item for carries, those guys and i know a lot of them that they jsut dont have that item in 'theyr shop' at all, those are the players that have no idea about dota , and thats not only for noobs but even fomr some guys with thousends game of dota, but they play it like they playing 'street fight' , ' metal slug' or some shit. trust me i know lot of theyr prossec of thinking , they dont buy bkb even when they have a lot of damage items , but they absolutely need a bkb cause he will get foccused and killed without being able to to right-click 1 time the enmy, they will think imediately ( cause all human beings think even the dumpest) that im dying i need to get stronger and they buy as a 6 item desolator instead of bkb lol. yeah also sometimes bkb is a waste of money there are some games that you think you need it but actually you can get away without it only with a better position and a better way of aproaching team fights.

                                                            forcestaff is the better bkb

                                                            Sarllo

                                                              bcuz all skills of the game bypass it lol (no joke)

                                                              also is too expensive.. 10 str + little dmg... recipe is too expensive

                                                                          I probably over buy bkb tbh. If playing like pa, wk, troll I just buy it without thinking. Really you should only buy it if it's clearly going to win you a team fight. Rushing it on any hero is awful cus you'll burn charges before you can end the game. Ideally you want it like 25-30 mins, use that 10s uber charge to win a big team fight, then use it like 2 more times to push rax and end by 40 mins. Then really late it's worthless again cus enemies kite you with force staffs and wait out the awful 5 seconds.

                                                                          ETdAWESOME

                                                                            Because like stated above, people prefer 2-way items(both offensive and defensive capabilities like manta), or otherwise just stack up on offensive items like desolator. BKB is kind of a crutch, a purely defensive item. Other than the magic immunity it gives, which has slowly been weakened over the years with the number of spell immunity-piercing debuffs increasing, its not that great. 200 hp and 24 damage for almost 4000 gold? No thanks. Then there's the issue of timing. Get it too early, and you'll either be stingy with usage to save the long duration times, leading it to be useless, or use it too much, leading to 5 second bkb by 30 minutes. Also, get it too early, you may lose the tempo because the damage becomes insufficient.

                                                                            Story Time

                                                                              I dont like bkb, therefore i play support who does not get it anyway :D izzy life

                                                                              TheMaverick427

                                                                                HookandRoll

                                                                                  ywn-

                                                                                    WHy buy BKB when u can buy MANTA AND LINKINPARK

                                                                                    NineO_OSix

                                                                                      bkb is tricky cuz if you rush it you usually lose due to the fact when you really need it to win a teamfight it is only 5 secs. Most of the time it is used as bkb hit rax or bkb tp. The item also does not increase your farm rate and doesnt offer much stats or damage. The item is mostly used as a power spike or a surprise factor when you first get it to win a major fight.

                                                                                      Lets do Science

                                                                                        Most of the time bkb doesn't even actually increase your ability to engage fights all that much anyway. Sure it can make the enemies supports useless for x seconds sometimes but, you've just bought yourself a timer to end the game asap before the charges run too low and you blew 4k on an item that gives almost 0 offensive power not to mention the million ways there is to completely waste a bkb or pierce it. Meanwhile, the #1 on the enemy team invested in real offensive power or even in more cc such as Basher, once again nullifying your bkb.

                                                                                        NineO_OSix

                                                                                          what the guy above me said is correct. I usually only buy that bkb at late game where we are doing base race or going to take rax and against invoker. Usually it is bkb hit tower.

                                                                                          Abdal Al-Maleq
