Batrider needs some form of love!
In Dota2 Batrider has been in the game since the patch of the fire heroes.

Look at the ammount of matches played in pubs.
Even Jakiro has seen 50% more games (added same time), though he is a pretty situational support with interesting high mana capabilities and situational teamfight-spells.
CK has almost the same ammount of matches played on him tho he has really just been added like a few weeks ago.
Both Competitive and Pub pretty much ignore Bat today, he may be a solid candidate to counter sf or some midders, but really do you enjoy playing him?
