    can give us the best 4v4 or 5v5 combo??
    what heroes to ban and what heroes to be picked??

    a combo to defeat this line up:
    riki,sven,traxex and lina..

    hoping to have the best response..

    CM+Slardar, Tinker, Broodmother

    But basically everything works. They have only one powerful lane.

    Game Strategists unite!

    Sven, Lina OR CM at top if Sent, bot if Scourge, maybe a PotM at mid and a carry + pusher at top. :D

    Its a very weak lineup actually,
    could be easily countered by slardar venge, razor, doom rylai/wl

    just insert the appropriate hero on this theory

    A pusher, A ganker, A support/initiator, A carry

    Sladar - To counter riki, counter Sven's armor buff and make everyone really easy to kill.
    WD - To own on the lane with Sladar.
    Razor - so he can drain Sven's damage and tank some stuff while carrying.
    Pugna - to prevent one of the enemy carries from attacking in an important fight and also
    to counter Lina.

    Then I don't get what's the point of this thread. You already agree that the 4-hero lineup you mentioned is weak.

    Slar gonna stand behind his team and make sure everybody is amped nicely before he goes into battle?

    WD / Pugna = Snacks for a double silence + double aoe stun team?

    Razor --- I do hope that he gets a hood before lina gets level 6, and a vang + ogre axe at level 7.

    WL would be a silly choice as riki is a superb diffusal carrier, even tho he might help babysit.

    IMO, a diffusal carrier to counter sven. IMO, Dazzle (meka+necrobook), WR (hood+diffusal), Tiny (what else..), FV (no MOM pls).

    Sentinel's side

    Sven (bot)
    Lina (bot)(roaming)
    Crystal Maiden (bot)
    Nevermore (mid)
    Storm Spirit (top)

    Wait wait wait wait.

    You're part of the competitive staff, but you're bad at line-ups?

    What is up with this website?

    You could try:

    Slardar, Shadow Fiend, Warlock, Lancer, KOTL.

    Warlock has a massive AoE one second stun, where Fiend can ulti them, and possibly KOTL can cast Illuminate.

    Lancer and Slardar finish off.

    Moved to Strategy

    One of the more interesting and Entertaining line-ups

    Huskar + Magina Bot
    Lina + SandKing ToP

    But there's no BEST line-up

    however you can try to do something like

    4 stunners

    Wanna try something fun?

    Slardar/Dazzle/ShadowFiend/Enigma/Magnus (can sub witht tide I guess cause hes still not available in cm)

    Slardar/Dazzle lane together. Magnus/tide/sf can take solo or solo the dual lane np, with enigma jungling. SF and Engima hold the game together till mid (if youre having trouble with that enigma can always lane) and then the armor reduction of dazzle and slardar witht he dps of sf/magnus/tide (as if tide requires positioning!) plus positioning of enigma allows easy ults for magnus and sf as well. Pretty lulzy if there are 4 blink daggers but tbh I don't think slardar will be requiring one.
