First watch this -

It is another tutorial video where Merlini discusses "tactical pauses" and possible pause abuse. He takes as an example the game of Navi where they (according to Merlini) abuse the pause. Merlini says that before pause MTW>NAVI, after the pause Navi completely turn the fight around.

Then Puppey's answer on twitter: Merlini, if you going to keep contributing yourself in Dota you better not be some lying *** to get some VieWErsZ

Now, this's being discussed actively on reddit (500 posts)

What do you think? Who is right?

some extra:

UPD:
Merlini twit: @CLEMENTINATOR it was meant to raise awareness to pause abuse, not slander my old teammate. Much respect for you guys still, #navipennantftw

Paraphrasing merlini, it really is a pretty clear cut case of pause abuse. What are the odds puppey lag at that moment?

Puppey being mad just seems to confirm it.


Sad to see old teammates turn on each other.

may be indeed someone lagged (loh), and during the pause of course they planned how they would manage to survive/win obviously upcoming battle
