Trolling ban and leaving all good heroes in the pool is now a legit strategy? Seems like teams are starting to do that, Zenith did that and won, iG did that and won too, or they are just trolling.

In one way it has sense, but it's sort of a risk.

they let the opponent team pick the imba hero so they will know how to deal with against these hero at the international . The tour is just for practice . I doubt they will troll ban like this at the international

ye i think its kind of pratice too.
and also first game clg - iG both teams banned out random heros, so both teams were able to pick whatever they like to pick. its fair imo.
and even lyca made it into the second ban phase.
its probaply the best training you can get, to face the scareful heros.

#7 When you don't ban anything it won't ban random hero!
Anyway, iG succeed with it in the 1st game, 2nd and 3rd one Naga and Furion were banned. 2nd game iG got outpicked hard. 3rd game they tried to play a 5-man Dota, which is fail.

jesus, what is wrong with people in Dota, sure its a legit strat, you leave the pool wide open and dont give anything away, then you can ban in the 2nd phase because you already have an idea on what the other team wants to pick and they will do the same..

its a risky play but its pretty good if you are confident in your strategy
