    It is good. But it requires team organisation so that you can get the enemy team to stand in it and then stay in it. Magnus would have to be your best friend in this instance as he could skewer a whole team into it then stun them. Or Engima's Black Hole would work.

    Looking forward to Tusk on live.

    Also, his voice sounds exactly like the announcer for the Greeveling. Though I don't think his voice fits his character at all.

    I always tell support to stay a little back, and always tell them to buy force staff.

    With good scouting, a ranged stun or hex, and a force staff, chrono is rarely a problem. Stuns early game and if he builds bkb, by the time he's done you will have force staff to use to save allies.

    In pubs void tends to destroy, and although he is obviously not easy to counter, he is rarely a problem compared to other heros like magnus or sven, who just seem to become machines in the right setup (particularly the setup that includes magnus and sven rofl).

    TLDR; I'd rather they have void than magnus.

    Does Force Staff-ing people out of Chronosphere remove the stun? Or are they still stunned for the full duration even if not inside the sphere?

    These things should be self-explanatory, but you never know.

    Gotcha. That sucks, but I guess it would be too easy to get out of it.

    yeah but before that nerf/buff void was a very rare pick (melee carries used to be considered trash pick)

    I think it's been known for quite a while that Tusk was the announcer for The Greeveling, at least I was told ages ago that it was supposedly him. But yeah I agree on the voice part. It sounds odd to me.

    Is there any schedule where you can see when the tournaments are being played and a link you can go to if you wanna watch it? I'd like to see more of the pro players play but I find it hard to know when they are playing.

    if you look at that video you'll see that the icons for players is bigger than normal, how do you enhance the size of them?

    Dota 2 subreddit has a list of upcoming matches in the sidebar, or you could check out Teamliquid's calendar or joindota or gosugamers. Now that own3d.tv is no more, you can pretty much find all the streams at http://www.twitch.tv/directory/game/Dota%202. Fnatic vs Na´Vi should be the 'biggest' game of the night along with Mousesports vs Virtus Pro.

    Kinda sounds like a... troll? I dunno. I imagined Tusk to sound like a more nomad-y version of Brewmaster. Right now, he just sounds more "thin" than he is, if you know what I mean.

    That's nice, though anyone with any reaction time at all will just proceed to beat on Vengeful instead. She isn't that tanky, is she?

    Losing VS still beats losing PL...although I would argue that no ult should be such a free kill. Might as well just important the ults from ToB that do infinite damage.

    Well, i remember swapping out of Chronosphere our Shadow Fiend when he had ~100 health left, and Void had his gap closer on CD. SF was out of range of Chronosphere and started hitting Void (by that time Chorosphere ended and we was free), i stunned Void and we have got an shutdown.
    And if you die to save your farmed carry, your death will be avenged.

    Oh, and i played Doom Bringer today. Last time i played him his Devour made him visible for other team. I was on short line against blood seeker and Yournero, at 5 level (when Lvl? Death shined for me) I ate a big wolf and have got his +30% damage aura and 2.0 crit strike. Yournero died from 2 crits while bladestorming (his friend buffed me bloodcraze, or how this silence+damage boost called, so my crits was ~400 at 6 level) and BS took only 1 hit + Doom. He died somewhere near their base.
    Also, Doom Bringers ult is the best ult ever, it rends useless almost anyone (if you add there Banes attack damage debuff, you will literally render enemy unit useless) due to disabling all skills (and some passive skills too) AND doing tons of damage to it over 16 seconds.

    Other game, enemy had fed Tinker who destroyed almost anyone with laser+rearm+laser+rocket. When i finally met him on battlefield and used ult on him, he died. He tried to run away and died (no one even touched him, it was only Doom, and maybe 2-4 hits from ranged creeps), the single ult made him useless for 16 seconds and killed him

    Something tells me I should try Vengeful more often.

    Also yeah, Doom Bringer/Lucifer/Satan is pretty sweet.

    I started loving him when I played him and the other team had an overfed Riki. The problem was him going invisible whenever we tried to kill him (this was the typical low-skill pub game too, so no one had a gem or dust), so I used my ultimate on him and he couldn't stealth for the whole duration. That was such a saver for our team.

    Not to mention that Devour is both great for gold and getting some extra utility, and his Lvl ? Death taking a chunk out of people is really satisfying.

    more like the opposing team is shit, but it's nice to see still. First time he has been picked outside of aotD in thirteen months (in professional games, obviously).

    His permanent silence against heroes like bane/OD are enough reason to warrant a slot on the team already.
