  • Treant Protector's Overgrowth not disabling Riki's blink?

    A game I had today (Match ID 60455978) I used Treants Ult on Riki at 16:50. I could visibly see the ult take affect on Riki but he was able to blink onto me within the first second of Overgrowth. Maybe Treant protector's Overgrowth doesn't affect Riki's blink strike?

    you are right. it doesnt. fyi, i will tell u more how overgrowth sucks.
    1. it disables BLINK. but only AM's, QoP's, Prophet's teleport and blink dagger are BLINK. others are more like forced movement, so overgrowth can do nothing.
    2. it disables attack but not spells and items. u can use bkb and manta to dispell the effect. oh purge might also work(not 100% sure)
    3. it deals no damage...
    u can ignore this. but it is probably THE worst crowdcontrol ulti in the game...just pick crystal maiden and frostbite(single target vesion of overgrowth)is better.

      Entangles and ensnares only prevent normal blinks (AM, QoP, Blink Dagger, and Furion's TP (at least in WC3)). Riki/PA's blink-like abilities don't count.

        Anything that isn't based off of the blink skill doesn't get silenced as it is a FORCED MOVEMENT rather than a blink. Other skills that should be cancelled and currently aren't are transformation skills but that's another issue.
