    They're kind of boring. Icefrog should've kept the 5 bans system. Even with 10 heroes banned there are still 36 other heroes to choose from.

    They are boring even with +100 heroes pool.

    I say Tiny isn't as picked as he should be.

    IMO Icefrog should've put in the "shit tier" heroes and left the good ones out.

    There's been a lot of boring picks, true, but there's been some really fun ones as well. Morph got a ton of play today, and there was even at least one game with (gasp!) no Spectre, AM, or Weaver.

    I'm getting really sick of Weaver, hope he gets banned more.

    That is what I assumed as well but really with the monotony of picks we have been seeing it was probably a mistake to reduce the bans for this tournament.

    Another option would be to put THD in instead of AA, Kunkka instead of Beastmaster, Obsidian instead of Furion, PA instead of Spectre, etc. Would make for more lulzy games in my opinion.

    If Na'Vi will get to the top with no loses, they might pick Pudge in the final match. Or Axe.

    Let's hope :)

    Banning is for pussies. Banning should be banned from the game.

    Weaver should be removed from the game, lol. I wish he was banned every game.

    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.
