Agressive GK
Pudge's hook allows him to play an active role in defending thanks to the nature of his skill. His Hook can be used to snatch the ball from enemy strikers before they are able to make any attempts on goal. Pudge can also punish far passes and through passes by hooking the trajectory. If an enemy decides to go for a long shot and Pudge is not near the goal, Pudge can easily catch the ball before conversion using his hook.
This way, Pudge need not stay in the goal box and can support his teammates by giving them more pass choices and lessen the pressure upon them.

Offense
Pudge can be played offensively by predicitng enemy movements. The trick is to read the pass and hook the ball from right under them, pulling the play forwards. Unlike GK, this position is several times harder since you will be away from your team and comes with a fairly high risk/return since failure would mean that you are unable to participate in defense and success would mean you are free to 1v1 with the enemy GK.

Pudge is inspired by the Warcraft 3 Banjoball hero, Jig Per Ace.

Unlike Jig Per Ace, Pudge only has one variant of his hook instead of an Ally Hook and Enemy Hook.
