What is a "Respect-Ban"?



  • I was watching some replays from The International 2 and the caster used this word sometimes - especially when the teams have chosen their 4th and 5th ban. What exactly is a "respect-ban"?



  • Respect bans are bans of heroes that are generally not considered strong in the current metagame but which are run extremely well by a specific player. Examples are Dendi's Pudge, Puppey's Chen, Korok's Morphling, Sylar's Lone Druid, etc.
