You've got nothing wrong! Thanks michimatsch! :) I always wondered how people did the vids with no bots and special effects like 5 Svens lol

The cheat of gold, I assume, is - goldxyz. Will try all that soon.

Sorry for getting a bit out of the topic here! My contribution as an awesome high skill support (eheh) but terrible carry: try Riki indeed. But do it with inteligence, don't just stay around the enemies all the time, do not assume they are stupid and lazy enough to not have detection. Play as if you're a hero with high DPS and a very special Silver Edge plus 4 Blink Daggers. His mobility is the thing now, he's really fun, and a good door into the carry world :)

PS: Tip into understanding girls: you just... Don't. ahahahah

here are all the 'cheats' for your convenience.

I know the feeling, my girlfriend is very unreasonable sometimes.

On topic though: Consider starting with melee heroes (since their animation strikes faster than ranged) - Then start with some of the easier ranged heroes (Like Windranger for example) and end up with hardest (Like Clinkz, Lina or Zeus)

And before someone saying : CLINKZ HAS AN EASY ANIMATION HERP DERP. Please. By the time he draws back his bow I can deny that creep more than 5 times.

I've updated my list so I have more or less 1 ranged and 1 melee in each role, for drafting purpose. And tried to make some heroes appear more than once, so it is narrowed to something I can handle.

It starts looking as what I need. :)

Agreed. Same with Drow Ranger.

The only thing that makes it manageable is the high base damage and attack speed.

The lines between the respective Position# can sometimes be very thin (especially between #5 and #4) so dont fixate on it too much.

I've been thinking about that for some days. The way I wish to use it is more like a "quick decision guideline" for when I have these 15 seconds left to pick up my hero.
(And a short list of what i'll practice)

But yeah. I had to put it in a more practical way, so I did and changed the roles description. I have to tied up the heroes a bit, because they don't always match tha categories anymore. But hopefully it will make more sense this way and I'll be able to narrow down the heroes number.

I tried Rubick but his ultimate is hard to use in the frenzy of battle, maybe i'll put it apart for some time. Death Prophet is powerful, but I feel no fun in playing her, dunno why. Finally managed to get "sort of" something out of Magnus, but as a back-up support with a lane carry, not sure, maybe I'll look at him a bit further. Tinker and Ancient Apparition look interesting, never played them, hum hum * think *.
