Damage bonus from ulti is a bit much if it applies to allies as well.
Warlord's passive aura seems it could be better < it will die out if the game lasts long/late game.
The "Coalition Blow" is a bit random, if you're trying to make this hero who just has abilities that affect everyone, - seems to forced IMO.
So far I like the ultimate, holding vote.
well... the concept of the warlord is "more is better" his role in the game is to grant some advantage on team fights, but pretty useless in 1x1, coalition blow is the same idea as "united we stand" a large army is suposed to deal much more damage than a small one, that is the concept of coalition blow, "everyone hiting the same target" (i supose it should be single target maybe...)
Numbers of course arent the point here, the concept is of most importance, ulti may be too strong and aura may be too weak but once its balanced what do you think?
edit: hmm... battle trance from troll warlord is 100 atkspeed for 5 seconds in lvl 3 (ultimate) while warlords presence is 40 neverending that also slows the enemy team (60 total diference, almost like hyperstone in the entire team...) how could that be weak, for a normal passive you could max on lvl 7?

I think its a good concept, but im no fan of "more cages" , or caging skills, we have a few already that would lose its uniquess, i would change the Wild arena. Maybe rethink concept, to not "summon an arena around you" but maybe buff/debuff everyone , turning the battlefield to an arena.
also the Warlord theme invokes heavy WAR around him not Gladiator stuff like an arena. Coalition blow seems like a great ulti, to use also. have a Blaphagor and his 5 creeps, a hero with puzzlebox, tempest with minions, and bam!! you deal a Sh*t load of damage i LOVE IT.
reworked the hero quite a bit to better match the concept, based on some feedback.
YEAH! Now we are talking, now i can see this guy "leading" comrades to battle. Numbers are still a bit off, too much MS gained through both skills, can get to 50% almost, thats kinda a lot. but i like his concept, his skills.
I imagine him as a heavy knight in armor chargin through the hellborn army.
And here you go man, a nice pic for your hero.
WOW thanks for that image! thats exactly what i was looking for =O (ok, not at all, but the horse is a nice add xD)
i dont get it... 50% ms?? only offensive tactics buff MS and its 9%.
i think you misunderstood it, the buff stays active ONLY if there are at least 3 units together, if there are no allieds nearby so the buff is canceled imediatelly, but offensive tactics isnt an stacking skill, the buff starts at 9% and stays at 9% with 3, 4, 5, 10, 100, 500 units. but still, its a great buff to push lanes or on team fights think of it as hammerstorm's galvanize with some requirements.
OOOOO! Totally misunderstood i thought it was 9% PER allly, i was ZOMGSOPOWERFULL.
Ill vote your dream, i have mine in dream be sure to check it out, and soon ill have revision1 ready, i might rework the aura.
^^, i will.
maybe ill rework the one at DREAM, its the old version, and i really like this new one...
