Ty so much smuggles.
I knew the thing about the Earthspike but I never thought about breaking vision.
So I would say that I got quite a lot out of this vid but I don't know why you apologize. You are using your time to help me - it should be me apologizing.
PS: I loved how you hovered over Antimage's item in despair.

is there anything in the video that you want me to go over in detail because until i watch a game i dont really have an idea of what to look out for in terms of what you want to know.

like the breaking vision thing is probably one of the best things to get in the habit of doing as a support. the more you stay in the middle of a fight the more your going to get hurt and or die. sometimes this is needed but if you have low cooldown nukes and saves or diables like WW is amazing at this i suggest playing a lot of WW to learn how to constantly keep out of vision in fights because you can heal and nuke from great range so being IN a fight means your not playing WW well once you learn how to play WW positioning wisea lot fo that translates down to lion witch and CM and the like.

but yea anything else let me know.

Smuggels! I got another one for you:http://www.dotabuff.com/matches/2125628417
I was a bit tired in that game but I often am. You can probably stop after Tinker went afk because we obviously tilted pretty hard after that but other than that it was quite a normal game for me.

Ps: Does anyone know why I can't open these vids Smuggels posted in fullscreen?

I saw a few of your matches on dotabuff and I think that you sometimes get the wrong skillbuild or itembuild. It may be small but it can have impact. For example I see you often go 2-3-2-3-1-3-3-2-ult on Crystal Maiden or somthing similar where you emphasize Arcane Aura over Frostbite over Crystal Nova. However This leaves you with less utility and you are easier to kill. I think the superiour Crystal Maiden build is 2-1-3-1-1-3-1-ult and than maxing out Frostbite because 2 levels in Arcane Aura is more than enough until later. This is way better in my eyes because it allows you to be more agressive early on. Nova when maxed is a 50% movementspeed slow for 4.5 seconds!!!!! Maxing Arcane Aura leaves you with an easy to kill Crystal Maiden who isn't to good in killing either.

Something else what I do as starting items on almost any support these days is double tango double clarity courier obs and smoke. If you have gold you can always get some stats like branch or Circlet or gauntlet of strenght if you are getting an Urn of Shadows.
On crystal maiden especially is the Smoke of Deceit crucial to do early roames when you have hit level 2 from the jungle.

You may think that you are ditching your carry at that moment but as long he doesn't die and you can get kills on the map with your mid it is all fine.
Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in it.

And still every dota player flames someone else instead of himself.

@ Smuggels. I think that my positioning still needs improvement (read: it is horrible), my warding isn't the best and sometimes I just don't know what to do.
Sometimes I am just a bit helpless.

@Frosto Thanks for the suggestions. I will keep them in mind but usually I am running low on mana because I couldn't afford clarities after buying a courier and two wards.
