^ LOL

Although I'd recommend dazzul for defensive supp, skywrath for aggresif and jqki roll (kek) for pushing. I mean AFAIK as a support the early game is almost the same for all. Mid-late, you just gotta use your skills effectively.

Also, you enjoy playing in which position the most?

I enjoy the 2-3 position the most. I play mid mostly (I don't like carries that don't come online early, I need to help my team; supports just don't work at my potato tier (only if I'm partying))

Gonna play a bot game... who should I try out?

(If no one answers, I'll play jakiro)

Jakiro might be the best for lower level pubs, because of how self sufficient he is. He can push with his massive Aoe, teamfights really well with huge AoE spammable spells plus that ulti, melts towers early because of Liquid Fire and doesn't need many items.

Dazzle is pretty good as a defensive support, mainly because of how right click heroes are so dominant in pubs. If you have a 4 carry team, just grave one of them who is doing well and your teamfight becomes quite easy most of the time. I prefer Oracle tho, because oracle is a more single target focused hero than dazzle. Plus, who doesn't like a disarm/magic immunity?

Disruptor requires superior positioning, and if played well can singlehandedly win teamfights with his ulti. Glimpse is also op.

Since you prefer the 2nd/3rd position, I'd recommend broadening your hero pool for those positions and playing just them.

Also, the 5th which I'd recommend is dazzle/ oracle if you wanna play defensive. Skywrath for early single target burst. Jakiro for early pushing + aoe dot and CC. Venomancer/ disruptor for their ults. Treant for innitation. Vengeful spirit and bane for single target cc/ early ganking. Finally, rubick for dem plays.

Well, I'll probably be sticking to TA/Invoker/Puck/AM most of the time, just when I (finally) get to play an inhouse with you guys, I want something in every role so I don't feed like crazy. :D

Hello DotAfire!

I've played two games, once on Puck and once on Jakiro.

The puck game I had a terrible team, and they fed the Lich a lot. However, I did make many mistakes which I'm sure you could point out.

The second one I laned with a PA who played DotA 1, but not 2. It was interesting.

Feedback would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Oikonomia (Sofa)

Ahah sorry for the PoE invasion Sofa! I was actually writing a comment on this thread this morning when my pc blocked and I lost it. I was going to wish you best of luck on the new account and ask how is it going :D

I tried doing a new account long ago too, but I never played more than 5 games in it I think. Couldn't get past the fact that no one really knows what they are doing, so I think I will always keep my main where at least having a challenging game is a 50% chance. How have you been dealing with this, people that are completely new to the game?

Cheers!
Chichi
