you are assuming that they know to farm in that trench. In my experience, people in that trench don't spend any time time farming at all, instead walking around the map trying to kill everyone. And i did say those 2 were especially good if you know how to farm.

Maybe i should be a little more clear. If you don't know how to farm, don't pick those heroes

My point is if everyone picks a carry, and you try to CS, the *****torm is going to break loose. Just don't pick AM in the trench.

I doubt that anyone in the trench level of Naatuma even knows what cs is, everyone there spends the time in lane trying to harass the enemy as much as possible and auto-attacking the creepwave. That is of course in my experience, and from what i have played in. Of course, what you said makes sense, and it is good advice, but really i don't think anyone will know what you are doing other than killing the enemy.

The trench you are referring to is a little better than the game Naatuma has shown. People there know what is last hitting, and won't do stupid things like tanking 2 heroes and dying 5 times in 5 minutes.

Nature's Prophet is probably the best Pick here. Practise Microing Treants in lobbies (Jungling, cuttin creep wave, scouting, Roshan, etc.) until you feel comfortable with him. Once you're ready, just Rat your way to a higher trench! <}3

You can Jungle or take any Lane, so you should be fine as long as you're Solo. Just insta-pick Propfit and have fun. <}3

Id recommend Tusk, hes really fun and has a fairly low skill floor and a high skill ceiling. That means hes good for noobs and pros alike. Get some practice in with shooting off Ice Shards and he is just a great hero. He can be played as a semi-carry o9r a support so even if you have 3 carries its still viable.

I can play on USE with 50-100 ping I think and about 100-150 on USW.

My steam is Bunkansee if you'd like to play. I'm about average sill, and I don't like using voice chat so I'll almost be using text 100% of the time.

EDIT: If we do ever play, I play very very few heroes in the pool (about 2 of them, if I'm completely honest). I can play more, but I usually don't. I find I am pretty decent at the heroes I play though :P

I don't agree that you have to pick a carry to have an impact in the game, but indeed it helps to have some teammates in whom you trust. When you pick randoms that are ****ty there's nothing you can do either way. I can't play on the USA server either, but I'm sure a lot of people here will help you find that trusting stack that will help you a lot improving your game :)

When your teammate starts yelling on the mic and feeding couriers after feeding like an idiot (because yeah, that happens) I have a suggestion to you: just laugh. Try to find the funny in the situation, and you will see someone will join in that fun with you and you will end up losing the game but not losing hope in Dota.
