In the times of the Oglodi a well trained Stormcrafter knew he was never really in control of the storm but merely a vector for its power.
Through Stormthrasher, Disruptor wields the ancient power of the Stormrider. Stormriders laugh in the face of order and through force of will bend storms to do their bidding. Clad in the armor of his ancestors and riding a scaled storm beast, Disruptor is a true Rider of the Storm.
No one will be shocked to discover that Danidem & Hunter’s set “Rider of the Storm” is our team’s pick for the best entry in the Dota 2 Polycount Contest. The mount, Rampant the Scaled Hunter, is a wicked alternative to the default with both runed beak and feathers drawing attention and creating a sleek sense of direction. Disruptor himself looks battleready and grim. The beard design and eye-patch make the portrait stand apart and both also read well at game-distance. Technical execution is at the professional level.
Perhaps the only adjustment we would make is to tone down the feathers behind the saddle, but they hardly interfere with readability and this is a minor observation.
