Pred is the #1 hero I hate seeing picked most when I tmm, even more so than scout. But it comes close to legionaire.
I rarely win with a pred on my team.
Here is how to be successful with predator.
#1. Do not play predator because he is a terrible hero.
#2. If you insist on playing predator, do not jungle with him.
#3. Read #1.
Pred = awesome hero, rips trough most enemy heroes.
Jungle is easily done with him, noobs just need to realize that lvl 3 jungle is bullshit.
New announcer kicks ass and doesnt afraids of anything.

Well, since this is just your forum account, any bashes at what skill level you play at are pointless. All I know is that i've seen a bunch of streamers playing him to good effect.
Pred is a great hero, but this whole jungle kick with him has to stop. He's a horribly slow jungler with skills more suited for duo laning.
What's the reason why he isn't picked in tourneys? I know that zoning was the reason in the trilane era, but now that FWS is a lot weaker on ranged carries it shouldn't be such an issue.
From pub experience Tablet makes him life miserable, because you can wait 'till he leaps and then just push the target away. But is it that strong in comp scene where team communication enables Predator's team to keep the target slowed/stunned?
alch bones jungle pred works on low tier games cause no one wards or checks the jungle but above 1600 its really not a productive way to play the hero.

OP is right. Pred is very weak compared to other str carries and is countered easily by tablet. If you pick over any of these you are just doing a big mistake.
