I kno the whole point to riki is to be always invis and that doesnt bother me the thing is his smoke ability which is a silence a slow and causes enemies to miss for a realatively low mana cost to counter that one ability u would need a BKB and a MKB which in total cost 9300 gold not 2 mention the gem to counter riki in total for one hero to counter riki one would need 10000 gold!
My vote should be to remodle smoke ability

Or you could just move. or not be so silly to set yourself up to be caught it in.

100% DEFINITIVE, NO REGRETS ALL PERSISTENT. NO.

it would not cost 10k gold. It would cost 200 gold, and a well placed ward.

the only ability i can think of that is close 2 smoke is balanar creppling fear
Riki Balanar
-6sec silence -8sec silence
-25% slow -16% slow (nite)
-75%chance to miss -40% chance to miss (nite)
-75 mana cost -90 mana cost
-325 AoE - single target

i just think its mana cost be much greater for such a power AoE spell and possibly cooldown cause its AoE

sigh, you cant just compare spells to spells, it has to be the entire package.

shadow raze is probably one of the most imba skills in the game, yet sf is quite balanced, his stats are mediocre and he has no escape mech.

rikis other skills are medicore, backstab actually is pretty weak, blink is ok, perma invis is ok. hes melee too, making that a huge disadvantage.

RIKI=OVERPOWERED



Dude WTF Riki is so overpowered. He is a little shit that runs around and sticks his claw up your ass until you bleed out. Then just when you are about to cast a spell he smokes your ass. All that -bleep- second degree smoke makes it hard to breathe. Then your preoccupied by trying to get out of the smoke, Riki wipes out his dick and he starts butt -bleep- the shit out of you.

i think its important to keep your cool when you get smoked

if you panic and lose your focus he will probs kill you.

but if you pay attention its not too hard to avoid the smoke/efficiently move out of it.

riki is stupidly easy to kill. 2 nukes or dust him and hes food.
his main advantages are psychological... he pops up outta no where, he devastates you with smoke, hes tiny, etc. As long as YOU dont let him get the better of you, he is easy to defeat with almost any hero.

edit
i voted to have smoke re-worked, because i think in its current form its not very useful. Riki should get a more powerful spell, perhaps single targeted. Then maybe he will be more of a threat

It would probably ruin him as a whole. The AoE silence/slow/miss ratio is more or less his only useful skill in proper DotA, which is to say not 1v1.

His ulti does nothing in team battles, his blink can kill escapers and also do extra damage, his backstab does a little extra damage, but it's no big things, its his AoE cloud that really makes him a worthy pick if you play with the focus on winning as a team.

So you plan on increasing the manacost for the poor rikis manapuddle? Heck, Blinkstrike with it's low cd and low manacost is a good strain enough, but complaining about smokescreen's low manacost? Spare me sherlock.

Hhmm?tp's are useful but in this case better get ward/dust.

I dont think riki needs remodelling.He is who he is now and i dont see a reason to change that.
BTW,bs level 4 silence is great against riki.A pain that it is.
