    Awesome CW isn't getting ignored in pro games anymore. Such a fun hero and brings so much utility cause you can build kinda however you need.

    I member when they reworked his Aghs and it gave crazy damage reduction and it got picked every single game one major and the frog nerfed it during the major/tournament then again nerfed it to its currently level after the major?

    EG and NiP get top 4 and have basically punched their tickets to TI9 already unless they get like bottom 4 at the next 4 majors + there's a shitload of parity

    top 4, sir. winner is top 3 and facing either Secret or VP.

    am i crazy for thinking NiP has been saving a Meepo strat against Arc Warden? Ace is a great Meepo player but PPD never drafted it for 33 (who was a Meepo spammer... and OpTic needed lots of cheese to win last year) and hasn't yet for NiP. I get that there's a lot of AoE offlane these days but Meepo is a great counter to AoE with his timings + gap close + burst.

    Yeah, I edited mb.

    I think Meepo is just pretty garbage right now. Fnatic is the only team that picked it all tournament, (Abed is prob the best meepo player in the world) and they went 1-1, beating tigers and losing to J storm.

    game was sick

    but it speaks to how op TB is as a hero that EG was able to get back into the game imo. NiP did EVERYTHING right and TB was still able to recover so easily. that one EG gank into the third aegis basically made the game 50/50.

    i will be beyond disappointed if 7.20 doesn't dumpster terrorblade. i wasn't around for the sniper/troll patch but this is the most op shit i have seen. he's unbelievable at all stages of the game. he melts towers. he pushes every lane. you can first-pick him and he barely has counters and those that do counter him are worse at different stages (like PL early, Axe against buildings, etc.). 4.2 agi gain. highest starting armor in the game. and all of his talents are un-fucking-believable. fuck you icefrog.

    sunder better be melee range only with a cast time of 5 seconds.

    Ana taking another long break

    I really don't think he's interested in playing professionally at all anymore, but the money is probably too good to give it up completely yet.

    No aquila is big. Drums are now going to be super popular i think.
    Probably good. A carry getting complete free farm is still bad, but solo offlanes look viable again.

    NEUTRALS
    • Stacked Neutral creeps now give the stacker 35% of the bounty instead of 25%
    • Non-Ancient Neutrals now provide 5% more gold bounty

    Stacking bounty needs to be about 50% but 10% more gold is really nice for pos5s.

    Attacking creeps doesn't break tranqs anymore either. Now with hood/tranqs you can basically spam double edge off cooldown.

    It’s minor but i like that a vendetta attack breaks. There needs to be more break mechanics.
