INVOKER NEEDS SOME BIG-A$S BUFF NOW
Seriously, Invoker needs a buff. Nerfing his base damage to a point having lesser damage than a level 1 shadow fiend was a total JOKE... that damage plus his UNIQUE 2343895 sec attack animation makes it impossible to lane with vs a good opponent. He is the slowest hero in the game with the least damage and ridiculously low stats on top of that. Thats why nobody picks him in competitive anymore. Its a damn shame such a good hero gets burried like that. Valve needs to take care of that asap.

Invoker picks in The International 3: 0
Useless BS that anyone can avoid with just a TP scroll picks in TI3: 2 or more, not sure

THATS ♥♥♥♥♥♥!T

hes a nazi

Build Exort and attack the enemy hero until he retreats?
Daedrac Sep 3, 2013 @ 11:09am 
He's not picked competitively because he's highly situational. He's a good hero when played right

Didn't Zenith or MUFC pick invoker in ti3 ?

No he is not picked bcoz he got nerfed as fu*k ... they used to pick him before valve went ahead and screwed him up and stuff, you know?

True, at TI2 he was picked up and banned almost all the time. But that's the way it was with several heroes. Lycan, Morphling, and Invoker were all crazy strong, then got nerfed...

He got nerfed directly with damage, and indirectly with most of his core items and now he is a lot weaker. He used to be first tier, now he is last tier. He needs a buff, and anyone saying otherwise is just being silly.

Ya, because he's a right click hero...
Professor Paintchip Sep 3, 2013 @ 3:22pm 
He relies on right clicking in the early part of the game, if Invoker gets chased out of lane or not well farmed he isn't remotely useful later on.

The reason that invoker is not pickeed competitevly is because he relays on his levels. Its hard to win with an under leveled invoker but if invoker get good levels early on its really hard to kill him in professional dota. Invoker has great base damage tho that in my opinion doesn't need nerfing at all.
Invoker also needs good presicion and heros that have blinks are great counter to him like Pa if farmed properly and Ta and antimage etc
Professor Paintchip Sep 3, 2013 @ 5:37pm 
Invoker has terrible base damage. He is forced Exort for the first level or he'll get pushed out of mid lane.

no, i prefer that people think hes bad
that aside, a base attack damage buff would be helpful, but what i'd really prefer is a base movespeed buff

With all the CC available to him plus invisibility I doubt he needs movement speed.

Base damage I agree on.
