Bane will never reach level 6 due to crappy attack damage and low range. This is a high skilled invoker who will go Exort alac in this case. Bane will not be able to farm his soulring and bottle. Broodmother is usually banned.
Exort Wex Invoker at level 6 has what, 750 HP? Storm and Invoker trade a few hits, Storm hits him with Remnant and Vortex while taking lots of damage. Invoker is at 70%, Storm is at 20%. Storm eats up his bottle, then goes and insta-kills Invoker. Alacrity is nothing against Overload, Remnant and Vortex. Once Storm gets Invoker into a good range (it could be Invoker's maximum HP) where his combo will easily take him out Invoker doesn't stand a chance.
Brood Pugna Doom are the regular counters to everything, but are all usually banned.
And trust me, Bane will get to level 6 and be able to get his ring+bottle in lane...as I've said if he is having some problems all he has to do is Brain Sap and Invoker is immediately at a loss unless he can somehow dish out 600 damage in a few hits, or Nightmare him. Invoker can't get all the last hits and denies.
Also, Invoker is ridiculously easy to gank. Alacrity doesn't do shit when Venge comes in with Missile and Wave, SF razes him 2-3 times/Storm rofls in/Tinker smacks him around with his combo/Windrunner hits him with Powershot+Shackle+auto
If he goes Alacrity, harass hurts him bad and he is paper. Quas is for serious playing--you can actually kill your opponents with Snap-EMP-Cyclone while getting levels as you should, Exort is just meh and will not outlane anything.
Also remember Invoker goes mid not to win it (in which case Quas is better anyways) or farm it, but to gain levels, which he needs badly.
