Thinking very hard about navi's last game in that one TI where dazzle gave an enemy rubick weave in a heavy physical lineup and then graved himself after dendi spent 20 minutes straight hiding in the trees doing nothing

Spirit played some sloppy dota to lose a lot of a huge early lead, but they are so much more efficient on the map they've earned most of it back while little has been happening.

This game feels like it comes down to if Spirit can do things with their Axe manta shard and Invoker cataclysm timing.

Huge fight from Spirit. I was worried for Spirit's TA because of the Wyvern and TB on puckchamp, but the invoker cata and Axe won that fight

And they did. Some pickoffs into a huge fight at Rosh and now they're multiple rax and over 20k ahead.

I really don't get the hate icefrog has for the batbro. His kit is super unique and pros find ways to utilize it so he keeps nerfing him. Like who cares if an offlaner can jungle?

icefrog doesnt hate the hero, he loves the hero. the problem is that the hero is either absolutely broken or completely unplayable and there's not much in the middle.

yeah the hero isnt about lasso anymore because they nerfed lasso into the ground, the hero is about the insane magic damage you have in the early game and the crazy move speed you get with firefly

uh, yeah? broken heroes are discovered in a lot of patches, and when they get discovered and solidified in the meta it sucks rear end. They are correctly always nerfed to the point where they're not broken anymore(sometimes it takes more than one patch). It has nothing to do with hate, this is a cycle that's happened for almost every single hero in dota.

IMO bat should be rebalanced more around his ult than firefly like it is now, but it is very good that he was nerfed.

Yeah back in the day he was like Wyvern in the pro scene, where he was either banned in every game or would be picked every game, he was that good.

Sometimes, but when sidelane bat was good, force was better and travels were worse iirc

But the sidelane bat is dead because of changes to napalm mainly IMO. He doesn’t crush turn rate in one cast/with one skill point anymore (since 7.27b)

I think its higher than 0, as swapping dates is likely a pain for scheduling, if they can't find a venue that works for that timeslot however...

I also want Nemiga to win this vs PC, been watching them all through the LB
