I can see many people with great skill dodging hooks by using vanish or stalk at the precise moment to dodge the hook that would end them.
    You are hit by every other targeted aoe spell when invis and since hook is aoe the only logic is that it hits invis.

    I completely agree that an invisible hero should be able to be targeted by all targeted area of effect spells such as Hook. Add the "cannot hit invisible" to DotA and you'll see an even more overpowered Rikimaru. Being able to hit what you cannot see by predicting is one of the bigger skill factors in DotA/HoN and has always played an important role in the game. And don't tell me DotA/HoN is not a skill factor based game since that would be an obvious lie.

    This is mechanics forums, don't discuss irrelevant stuff like "What do logic and invisibility have in common?" and skill-related stuff. That belongs in the General Beta forums & Strategy forums

    Regarding invisibility and Hook, Hook should work on all units with invisibility like it does in DotA.

    No further discussion needed after many confirmations like you stated.
