Here is a long lane Tidehunter gameplay! Sorry about any sniffling, coughing, or general sickness. You get sick dota or no dota! Tide is a great long lane hero because of his tankyness, aoe from anchor smash, and his independance on farm. If you get arcane boots, you are doing a great job! Once he hits 6, he's great for ganking side lanes, and other things. Also, he's one of my favorite heroes. I love dem teamfight ultimates.
Here is another gameplay commentary coming at you, this time with Tidehunter! He's one of my favorite heroes. Some people think he's boring because he doesn't have a lot to do between ulties, but applications of anchor smash on your opponents is very crucial as it reduces their base damage by 40%! And besides, I like big teamfight ultimates. I was planning to do a long lane solo this game with my draft, but the lanes were weird, so I ended up buying long lane items and then playing support.
You should be able to see how we started off with mostly bad lanes and then transitioned into this with some solid play. Enjoy!

Here is a high level Tidehunter game that I played with pro player NotAHax. We played this pretty seriously, as there was a Spectre and an Invoker on the enemy team, both of which are dangerous to play against.
Here is another coaching session, this one has a different format, a lot more like 'Purge plays a pub'. I had previously talked to Dave for about an hour talking about roaming and ganking strategies. Here is us putting it into action on the euro servers. Enjoy!
