Most builds don't have a clear cut counter. Picking berserker blood/bt/reinc won't make the mcer your draft twin made any weaker against your allies that didn't/couldn't. When they do have a specific counter, those counters are usually so specific that they become dead weight in the event that the "countered" build isn't chosen.

If you try to win, yes. The same applies to sd tho

you can try win, and try to have fun at same time too. md is killing the fun part, because you cant come out with original combo (good one, but not still good as the mainstream combo)

I've played like 4 games so far on MD mode and it feels basically the damn same as playing SD mode. Only difference is that you're gonna know what the other team are going to play so everyone tries to go for the most basic builds since they might as well assume it's what the other team are going to go. I voted for SD mode because I like the idea of not knowing what the other teams gonna draft, whether they have the better pools or not, I just prefer the mysteriousness and variety, not that I even play that much anymore..
I'm a big noob

mirror draft is much better than sd it comes down to purely skill then not some skill and lucky drafts as there are some combos that can destroy a game if only 1 team has them

It's not enabled yet. Since it'll work just like it does in dota games, it should be !mode mdem.
