Yeah, topic title is program. I think IF should change it, since force staff is allowed and dagger not, where is the logic? I bet dagger would be key item on pudge.

Cause you can bilnk yourself into the trees and the hook people so they're stuck. It doesn't work with forcestaff since you cut down trees if you're pushed into them.

surprise is a really big element, you can bite them w/o their notice and you dont even need hook for this

What is the single strongest ability Vengeful Spirit and Pudge possess throughout the entire game?? The ability to disrupt enemy positioning.

A Pudge/VS + Blink Dagger Combo would be so powerful in any situation of the game that it must be prevented. You just can't have the ability to disrupt enemy's position coupled with the ability to position yourself freely.

Tell me something, you were thinking in using it right? Thinking how it would be very useful, flashy and nice. You can't give that ability for free, specially in the competitive scene.

When you are playing Pubs, and there is a Pudge in the game and a Mexican Standoff scene is happening, what do people think?
Pudge's Enemies: Don't get hooked by Pudge
Pudge Allies: Let's wait for Pudge to make a Dendi Hook.

It is not about getting people stuck in un-passable terrain. Although true and valid, this is a shallow argument and void of any effort done for critical thinking.

not just getting stuck , you could be hooked from anywhere and there will be no way to counter pudge cause you won't know where he might stand . that's too imba and actually less fun .
