    was watching swindle's stream yesterday and they were scrimming, and they ran ophelia jungle so. Think only MSI does it in tournament games, but all the other teams are practicing it I guess

    I have been watching Swindle's stream last night and he agrees with Sender that they need to adapt to this. Furthermore they picked up Ophelia in a scrim versus Nimp.

    I am kinda depressed by the thought of seeing Keeper in the competitive scene, but looking forward to more Ophelia, Parasite, Lego or Tempest.

    It does look more efficient than double roamers, even if roamers manage to get 2-3 kills their team is still down due to jungler providing additional source of xp/gold, ganks and pushing towers.

    Even in a game where MSI was losing vs KD in terms of kills early game, they had a decent gold and exp lead because of them jungling.

    Most of the popular jungle heroes are strong pushers which will fit with the new metagame that is being forced

    Yeah, Keeper is one of the best pushers in HoN at the moment. I would say the reworked Keeper and Parasite are decent replacements for every jungle hero HoN might lack

    This is being done in Dota, its why Warbeast/Lycan was auto-banned in every asian league (not joking) -- and just recently received a pretty nasty nerf.


    Jungling to counter trilane meta, carried over by MSI. Well played and well studied as always, there's a reason they will remain #1 as long as they care to hold that title.

    "jungle meta"

    MSI's jungle strategies are still very different from what alot of DotA teams like to run, not that I would expect everyone to understand points finer than "derp hero is in jungle".
