That is not skill, that is an exploit in the game that will probably be patched.  Very disappointed to see this in the tournament.

is that hook legit? 

he didn't use any kind of glitch did he?

To people who don't play Dota and think this is OP.


The execution required for this to be done is through the roof.

Puppey is one of the best Chen's in the world as is Dendi on Pudge. Very few other pairs could possibly do it with the same consistency as Na'Vi.

I don't even play this game but that move looks cheap as hell.

its not a bug. its an outsmart to an ability. one teleport and one hooks. u would do the same thing if husker jumps on a target and that target tp'd to base or got sent back blinked or forcestaffed

@doctorj11111 Valve already said they are keeping the mechanic in the game, it's exceptionally hard to pull that off.  Dendi failed that hook almost as much as he successfully hit it.

Stop bitching like you could ever do that, let along in a professional setting.

@Deadly_Fatalis 

Completely agree I have 1000 + hours in the game and can confirm how hard this is.

To land a hook (let alone on the correct target) is hard enough as it is but to time this with Chen is nearly impossible.  I also watch a lot of Dota and have only seen this ever tried in one other game and it was an epic failure. 

So for anyone who thinks this is OP they are right to an extent however it's almost NEVER EVER done even by Na'vi (I haven't seen this in the past 12 months by them) because it's so damn hard to get right.

This is also something Na'vi likely won't try again because of the teams they will be playing, this won't work against a European Team, only some of the Chinese teams because the Chinese don't practice against Pudge.

@Tixylixx It came up in 2011 and Valve confirmed it's being left in the game as a feature.

@whitey_rolls@Deadly_Fatalis This is definitely OP, you can kill someone who has aegis twice in the fountain. It's an definite kill on anyone. a level 7 pudge and level 1 chen can pull off this combo on a level 25. No matter how farmed, you will die. And when you say it is hard to land, it becomes easier when the hook is invisible, If you look at the second video in this thread, http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=2989 you will see that the pudge hook is invisible if you hook right before you are sent home. I watched the replay of the 3rd game and this did indeed happen a couple of times through the match. Please tell me how to dodge invisible hook.
