Re: DotA 2 picks
Weaver hasn't even been all that successful so far.
The picks are good.
I mean NS gets first banned against M5, Na'Vi go for Viper all the time, Scythe goes with Storm, some guys pick Tiny, Lesh has had some appearances, Void is being quite successful(!), we see Tide more often again, a Tinker every now and then and every team more or less has their own take on what's the best.
What more could you ask for?
I'm actually quite glad that there's no Invoker, not Bat, no SD. Allows for more variation on the solo lanes.
Oh and there's a lot of 2-1-2 play, some tri lane play and quite some 2-1-1-1.
DotA has rarely been this diversified.
