ppl shouldn't think something like
"how is this supposed to help me? lol this sucks"
"i am 1800+ these tips wont help me"
tbh if someone thinks this is a bad guide im sorry for him
because you won't find anything better
its just a guide. its better to play with tips from here than just go into a game and suck. also it worth for every single 1800+ gamer if he finds even >one single< helpful tip imo
just because the guide says something doesn't mean you have to react/play like this
still some of the points might come to your mind when you are clueless in certain situaitons (maybe you have a pretty good 4-man lineup and orange asks what he should play -> guide says tank would be nice because it sometimes happens that oj is misspositioning -> make oj play a tank instead of some feeding glacius)
totally supporting this and fj from now on (the moment i first discovered this)
very nice job and some nice useful tips!

Thanks FJ for this terrific contribution to the community, your knowledge and presentation of information will help thousands improve their game!
I only flew over it but I don't think you mentioned two things which i consider important. I always tell my friends to do 2 things : look at the enemy's items and use spells between aas when you can do it.
Dunno if you want to add that but it does look like the rest is pretty great.
This is pure brilliance.
Great stuff here!

lol you may be in my sig for doing such a retard post !
Extremely instructive. Not only gives good insight on some stuff, but also reminds everyone that the need for team-play goes above everything, and that attitude contributes much to wins in solo queue.
Thank you for the guide, subbed your stream and eager to see you casting.
Can you go a little bit more in-depth about match ups that should be auto wins / dominant mid?
For example, I went mid with torturer v puppet. I maxxed impalement and stun, with 1 point in the bonds for last hitting. Should I instead do 4-1-4? Why is polly such an excellent 1 v 1 hero? I find that if i am against a hero such as arachna or pyro, they can go out harass me and sometimes even go in between me and creeps and tower at the earlier levels
Thanks a lot btw, very good read
Very nice job. The best guide ive ever read and even experienced players like myself can find out something new cool st00f.

Though I myself didn't find a lot of new information - been playing since dota 5.84 - it was definitly a very well processed and well presented informative read.
I really hope people take the time to read this as it could help a lot of newer players and players stuck in their bracket, not only to have a better experience themselves but also make the game more enjoyable for the others they play with.
Thanks for devouting so much of your time to this community, it is very much appreciated

I dont play much anymore, and rarely read the forums, but I stumbled upon this and I had to leave a message! Well done
I think your guide should address the more realistic scenarios of solo queue, or maybe I just missed the point and you advocate calling mid every game.
Realistically you will normally have 1-4 other people wanting to play mid, 1-4 other people picking a carry hero, 0 initiators, 0 support. Doesn't matter if you're Blue or Brown this will be the case. What role do you suggest playing here? picking another mid hero and fighting for it? picking another carry? or should you go support and hope for the best?
