Hi and hello again, dear community members and DotaFIRE visitors!
Welcome to my guide to Disruptor a.k.a. Thrall, the Stormcrafter. This is my 4th full length guide to be published as usual exclusively on DOTAFire. This guide is based on the newest balancing update: The New Jouney version 7.02.
I am very happy Disruptor has received a huge boost of popularity in professional picks. Especially the 6.85 and 6.86 patches hugely increased his appearence as shown by tournaments like the Shanghai Major 2016 or We Play 3. That shows that Disruptor is a highly viable pick -- like he always was in my eyes.
Disruptor is a intelligence support hero with great spell mechanics and a considerably high impact, especially in early to mid game and with the right itemization even in the late game stage. His skillset is a very unique mix of nuke/harass, disables and repositioning abilities. His Glimpse is maybe Disruptor's signature ability, which can semi counter a lot of hard to deal with heroes and can result in some big plays. His whole skillset is built to be used in combos in order to reach different results. His ultimate Static Storm is a huge AoE teamfight ability consisting of a silence and nuke with an intense Aghanim's Scepter upgrade.
I am E1 Mariachi, DotA player on a regular basis with way over 3k games played in DotA 2 and I can call Disruptor one of my most played and favorite support heroes after Dazzle. I have a dotabuff statistic of over 61% win rate with Disruptor and suggest everyone at least giving him a shot since he is a little bit more complex to handle, but even more rewarding when bringing big plays and teamfight changing shots to the board.
