Hero Strategy

Make use of Thunder Strike's movement speed slow and vision over opponent to follow up with few right-clicks.

Whenever you see or expect an opponent to teleport in, be ready to Glimpse him back.

Kinetic Field provides vision in the middle of it. You can use it to scout pillars for wards or Roshan pit.

Glimpse instantly destroys basic illusions.

In late game, Aghanim's Scepter can turn your Static Storm into a win condition.

Counter Strategy

Disruptor's main harassing tools is Thunder Strike. Heroes with dispel abilities are strong against him

You can use Disruptor's Thunder Strike AOE damage by walking into your creep wave and damaging it

Don't teleport in plain sight around Disruptor as you might get Glimpsed back to where you came from

Hide behind trees or run to highground before teleporting or escaping, so you don't get caught by Glimpse.

Disruptor's Glimpse can be dodged by certain spells and items such as BKB or Manta Style

All of Disruptor's spells are countered by Black King Bar until he has Aghanim's Scepter. Once he has it, you won't be able to activate Black King Bar under Static Storm as all items are muted

Don't clump up because of Disruptor's Kinetic Field and Static Storm combination. It takes 1.2 seconds for Kinetic Field to form so you have a small window to get out. You can't Force Staff out of it and many other mobility spells are not working
