Pudge is the most popular hero in Dota of all time! It is very fun to play, and “Hook” is definitely one of the coolest abilities in Dota. However, alongside with his hook, Pudge carries a very interesting story behind his shoulders. In this infographic, we are going to tell you the story of the Butcher, bring up some interesting lore facts, show you the top heroes which counter Pudge, and much more!

Pudge is an extremely multi-faceted and strong hero. Indeed, if the Butcher is played right, he can actually carry his team to victory. The character is pretty difficult to play though. This is his gift and his curse. You can either ruin a match completely or easily achieve victory. Everything’s in your hands. Pudge is one of the most popular characters in Dota, but unfortunately not all professional teams pick him. The fatty has been nerfed quite a bit recently, and, naturally, he hasn’t been frequenting pro matches. But in this guide, Cr1it is going to demonstrate to us what Pudge is capable of. In this match, Evil Geniuses will face Fnatic at The International 2018. The match is going to be nothing short of spectacular.

Another great Pudge game on the professional scene was the Fnatic vs Let’s Do It at The Summit, where DJ showed how to properly use Pudge for domination over the enemies. DJ’s performance which was truly outstanding in that match so we could not miss a chance to make a guide on it!
