Zottelhase: Hi Zlapped, Why is Gravekeeper not picked in competitive games? I like this hero very much, but I never see him played in high
Zlapped: Gravekeeper is not played in competitive games because he’s not good enough.
It’s an amazing laner and you can pretty much win any lane.
But the thing is, so can a lot of other heroes. Deadwood for example provides way more impact than a Gravekeeper. Bombardier has more global and more burst. It’s just a better hero in general. Kinesis provides more than a Gravekeeper does.
The answer to your question is. Gravekeeper is an amazing laner. But so are so many other heroes. But there other heroes that are amazing laners can provide so much more value than a Gravekeeper can.
I used to try Gravekeeper a couple of times while I was captaining, it didn’t end up very well, so I stopped doing it. The heroes just not good enough and that’s why we won’t be seeing it anytime soon.
