    Just like Heh_ said u can't cover whole map with anty invis stuff and its just that players with riki's ulti mostly gank easily and get seriously fed.

    EDIT: And for the shadow blade - it costs gold and with ulti you go in and out of visibility without cooldown(yeah, I remember about activation time)

    Too add on to this, all you need to do is to go mid, get 6 quickly and start roaming with a bottle. Even if there's sentries in all 3 lanes (which has happened once), you can still find lapses in the sentry coverage, especially on the top/bottom lanes, and get easy kills when you suddenly throw a bunch of nukes during a teamfight that looks to be equal until the opponents realize that there's an invis dude lurking around.

    Most likely you won't save up/spend all of your initial gold to have shadow blade on 6th level...

    Gem is useful, but the perma invis dude can always roam to other lanes where the gem holder isn't at.. or just lurk in the jungle/between lanes to jump on people crossing the map.

    Anyway, getting back from the talk about riki's ulti to the main problem - Is there a chance guyz(bu3ny & Jan2011) to make a sticky/global poll about wishes on that you could then share with the devs? We (basic members) don't have the power to get enough votes for the polls and they sink. Sticky and well moderated topic on this matter would be nice.

    Getting 3 nukes + Riki ult at lvl 6 is nothing like having a SB. Current SB doesn't let you escape after initiating, and new Permanent Invis even allows you to harass without breaking invis.

    Anyway I don't see much future for AD or any Valve-made mode, just hope they are working on tools for customs so the community can actually come with decent ideas and have reasonable maintenance/balance changes.

    Custom game modes is bad idea cause it won't go well with matchmaking system.

    I think that there should be just new modes with ability picking based on classic game modes like all pick(pick 4 heroes and select abilities from them), single draft(randomise 4 heroes and pick abilities from them), all random(slot based skill randomisation) and captains mode with all picking and ability swapping within the team after captain selects hero pool for his team.

    Currently there's no real tactic in choosing abilities cause most of the time you get your wished next ability taken from you just before your round. If there was at least full pull with all abilities from heroes with 4 skills, at least we would try to counter picks of other players.
