Hero Strategy

Focus on last hitting to get Helm of Iron Will purchased as soon as possible.

If you cannot pressure on the lane, consider creep skipping after minute 5 and farming neutral camps nearby.

Retaliate works on buildings so consider tanking tower shots if it is safe enough.

Look around the map to help out your teammates in the trouble with Stampede.

Once you get Blink Dagger, try to make use of it immediately before the opponents can see it in your inventory.

Make sure your teammates can follow up on your initiation. Centaur doesn't do insane amounts of damage.

Counter Strategy

Someone should buy Spirit Vessel against Centaur to deal damage, offset his regeneration and cancel Blink.

Armor reducing items are great against Centaur.

Items that offset magical damage output from Centaur are good against him.

Keep checking Centaur's items. Be aware of his Blink Dagger timing.

Don't clump up in teamfights for Centaur's Blink into Hoof Stomp initiation.
