For morphling to join the ranks of the round 1 permabans?


hes picked literally every single game in the pro tournament scene nowadays and imo deservingly so.

very strong early laning game for being a hard carry, almost perfect balance between offense and defense between his skills, can 1 shot supports with one item, scales well throughout the entire game.

when a team runs a hard carry it is almost always him, and he almost always delivers, theres pretty much a player on every team who can play him at a very high level.


what do u think guys? time for lycan/furion/darkseer to make some room in the 1st round ban pool?

So you're telling me, Morphling is more important than TK, TS, DS, NP, LYC, CK, Chen, Naga and (Ench - TA) in some cases?

Morphling is picked as a ever known strong carry that teams use to not reveal new strats etc.
And because it's a no brainer.

The only time that Morphling disappeared from p/b in DotA was in 6.72f. Probably the only hero who managed to be a top pick from 6.60 till 6.74c without making any absence.

I can say Morphling is the most solid pick for the last 4 years. Yet not worth to be banned 1st yet.

It all about the opponent playing style and their favorite heroes. I would say morph is a most ban vs. LGD. Just like most teams ban AM vs. DK.

Morph is the go-to hero when all the other carries like ck, am etc etc etc are banned.

Morph is one of the best carry of this game, must admit it.
Chinese first item BKB then morph from strange to agil and kill everyone works pretty well :D
EU cant understand a lot of things chinese players are doing, but if you look closely they are above EU lvl of understanding this game.
Dota remains Dota, chinese remains the best.

I agree with almost everything, apart of that very few teams have a really outstanding Morph player. Against certain teams like QG he was pretty much first ban material anyway.
