No, treant will never be a competitive pick.
And they could just make Camouflage passive on self and Treant would be 100x more fun hero to play.
Edit: Also, according to Purge Skywrath is being remodeled so BB might be next.
http://www.reddit.com/r/DotA2/commen...mander/c8vde0k I miss Bristleback, but I'm afraid people in my MMR range aren't going to be as easy to first blood in the first minute as I remember doing in most BB games.
Also, this picture pretty adequately sums up SingSing's return to the tournament scene http://i.imgur.com/IHSYvgi.jpg?1
I agree, I'm hoping BB is as strong as he was in DotA but I don't have my hopes up very high.
He runs around at max movespeed and is nearly impossible to kill while he spams a 400 damage AoE every 2 seconds and can also cripplingly slow people and reduces their armor so that he auto attacks them for 250 damage a hit...he's not a bad hero. His early lane phase is his worst part of the game and he's even going to win that against inexperienced enemies.
He has gotten some buffs in recent versions, none too significant though the Quill Spray AoE cap increase might have some silly results if you can bait enemies to hit your back hard enough for it to be relevant.
Yea, I remember when I was new to dota and went against BB for the first time and was like WTF IS THIS SH1T! Only other hero that gave me worse headache the first time I played against him was huskar.
The moment when watching N0tails stream and Hermanni shows up on the enemy team...
Really good night to see DotA today, Fnatic vs VP BO3, Fnatic vs Digitas BO3(The Defense Lower Bracket Finale) and VP vs NTH BO3.. and you know while we are at then throw in Empire vs Mouz BO3.. Shame I can't see them all live.

Oderint dum metuat.Success is dependent on effort.
WAIT, RUBICK JUST SPELLSTOLE STORM BOLT, I BET HE'S GOING TO USE IT-YEP HE USED IT OMG SKIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILL
I don't watch the pro scene expect for the international and there i usually just mute them. I mean I understand already what is happening on the screen and the commentators are well boring, they don't entertain me all that well and are not fun like some sport commentators. Never really got the appeal of having a commentator on game except for the comedic effect.
Live commentary is supposed to be shallow and obvious so that the viewers can shut off their brains and just enjoy the game. If you're looking for in depth analysis you should look for youtube videos from actual pro players
So is this game free to play, or is it only available via Steam?
