Just combo?

DS, Puck, NVM, Enigma, Kunkka

If the combo goes well, nobody will survive.

Firstly you want to make sure everyone knows what they are doing. Having a good combination of heroes wont ensure victory unless you know how DOTA works first.

Picking a balanced team is key. Make sure you have lots of stuns and disable.

I like the dual stun lane, good solo mid and babysitter/carry setup myself.

I like 2 roamers/supports (any combination of venge, lion, sven, rylai, or other disablers), and 3 strong carry or semi-carry solo (Nevermore, Tinker, PotM, Rhasta etc etc).

Is this viable?

tinker, nevermore,

while tide, vs, ES all roam constantly. Ensures tinker and nevermore gain lane dominance, while when the roamers settle in their own lane the that tri lane is quite hard in its own. Every time all 3 go mia, all 3 lanes have to play passive only seen it once, they went up 19-6 and tinker got his 11 min. BoT but SF went treads...idk why I guess to end it early, they did a rax push at min. 18

Dark Seer, Enigma, Nevermore, Sven and another cool hero (capable of at least semi-carrying) will pwn almost every game if performed right.

The dude said he's a noob, and you guys call heroes with their short names. I bet if he rly is a noob he didnt undarstand even half of those posts, haha.
Be more specific, what combo do you need, 2,3,4,5 heroes ?

Oldie but goldie - Crystal Maiden and Rhasta

If by theory craft you mean clashes where all get in an ult? If that's the case you need a skill that would make them clump up(Magnus), the best amplifying skill(WD), a good % damage AoE(Enigma&Tauren), another mass hold for about 4 seconds (Enigma) and so far I have no Idea wich other heroes. Maybe pure damage like ES,SF,SK or Invoker having many spells to throw if he has agha and imba hands. Or kunkka having 6 divines with all + damage buffs.

Tq fellas.. I will try.
well I have a plan too using area stun. But I have a problem choosing the killer hero. DT is good but he's very weak, TB is good but in the late game. Any suggest?

dark seer to vac all heroes together. shell a vacced hero to increase damage
wd cast maledict so they all lose ridiculous hp and cask to stun +add damage to it. maledict will GREATLY scale with other spells.
enigma with death pulse for % based damage and imba hold ultimate
the last 2 should be semi carries/hard core carries to help add damage and farm off this fight. preferablly they can do damage to multiple units. choices such as sven, medusa, nevermore, list goes on.
If your team is very good together, just insert 2 other nukers that can semi carry

5 Silencers in -du. They use an enormously long combined silence to make Curse of the Silent actually hurt badly and reduce the other team's options, and roam in a 5-man ganksquad to kill someone and permanently reduce that character's Int by 5 every time.
This is a terrible strategy

Rogue Knight, Magnus, Kunkka.

All three have AOE stuns and decent damage + Cleave.

Morphling, Nevermore.

Both have decent AOE + Soloing + Farming abilities.

QOP, Sand King, Tiny, Witch Doctor, Rhasta, Zeus. (if they have lots of papers)

They can do...... large AOE damage. (duh)

EDIT: Just for kicks, lawl, Dazzle. Weave and everyone hits.

yeah.. that's rly nice. enigma+wd+ds will be good together. But they're good in the early game. then I'll ask my fren to chose sven n magnus.

how about ursa? I think he's very good at killer, but I seldom find you guys use this hero.

DS Sven Naga OD CM.

For bans it actually depends to you guys, which hero do you think would ruin your line up or have a hard time countering (TA, DK or Tide to name a few)

Alt + Q + Q beats any other combo avaliable right now, some legends tells that toying with computer plug with full of sweat hands could be one even greater combo.

Theorycrafting. In the real game opponent will never let you either pick all those or execute it properly.

Dark Seer + any massive AoE spell like SF is profit.

If you're entering a competition, make sure you draft strong lanes, you don't want a dual melee with no stuns on top lane or something like that. Counter picking is a good idea too but since you said you're a newbie, i say just make sure everyone has a stun. Can't go wrong with more disables.

Thumbs up Re: Best Combo in Dota
Did you find this post helpful? Yes | No

I believe best Combo in dota is area disable (AOE stun)
If your team compactness are good here are the heroes for it
1. Centaur Warchief;Blink Dagger + Hoof Stomp lvl 4; 2.75s stun; cooldown 13s
2. Earthshaker; Blink Dagger + Fissure/Aftershock; 1.75s stun; cooldown 15s
3. Demon Witch; impale lvl4 ; 2s stun ; cooldown 12s
4. Rogue Knight; Storm Bolt lvl4; 2s stun; cooldown 15s
5. Slithereen Guard; Blink Dagger + Slitheren Crush lvl 4; 2.5s stun; cooldown 8s

If your team doing it consecutively total stun disable area = 11 second
and all cooldown skills are very short it means you can create combo each war happen.
even on late game 11 second disable is impossible for any hero to survive
