Im a 1650ish player I float around from low 1600's to higher 1600's, was hoping someone could just pick any of my recent games and tell me things im doing wrong or poorly. I don't have any exact match IDs for you as I feel they are all the same im on quite a bit of a losing streak. Just avoid the last one as my internet crashed for 2 hours or so and obv the game wasn't remade so not much for you to watch in that one lol.
I play 95% of the time support and I do feel my stats show that although my KD is a little low because I kept going on suicide ward placing missions for some reason when i started.
Hey, officer in Epoch here. If you would like, you could join the project epoch clan. We have mentors that are on at all times of the day and would be willing to help you improve. All of our mentors are 1700+ players.
You're most likely using a microphone, therefore I can't rate how you communicate, and this is important especially for support players. I'll just list down the things I see that you might want to check up.
During the laning phase, look at what are your lane's strenghts and weaknesses. In the replay I'm watching, you are 2 powerful 600-ranged heroes, they have 1 good 600 range and a melee. Since you have the advantage, position yourself agressively and harass the **** out of the melee any time he tries to last-hit something. He must be scared of you two. Mental intimidation is key there, you want Tremble's game to suck, so he must not have any chance of having a good early game.
On a lot of heroes, it's okay to keep skills up until level 3, but on Hellbringer, feel free to use it (You bought 2 mana potions). Death Boil at level 1 is good because it gives you the upper hand over another 600-range harasser, Monarch in this case.
It's not always true, but getting two autoattacks on the melee hero is often better than trying to deny the creep he's aiming for. You may fail to deny, but you cannot fail your autoattack.
A wild Devourer appears, you might want to ward the river defensivly over warding the pullspot. Giving two (or more) kills to the ennemy is way worse than letting them pull once or twice during 6
minutes. Don't hesitate if you need to spend 100 gold for a ward, it's almost never a bad purchase.
Just after (2:15 in-game) you have been greedy on Monarch when you had a chance to walk away. It's 3 versus 1, just use any chance they're giving you to get out of here, remember that having 1 kill is not worth having 1 death. This is very, very important. The only time it's not true is when you play a 100% support and you kamikaze successfully on their fat carry hero, or when the bloodlust is at stake, and you're certain you can get it, or you can feed it to your carry hero. (I'm aware that you survived with good juking, but you really need to know that, it helped me to improve myself)
During the laning phase, you're doing allright, I don't think I have anything else to say, so I'll move on to 7:26
S2 have gifted is with a brand new Observatory that sells wards and HP potions in a recent patch! Use it. Think about it, it takes less time to reach it than the fountain, cost 100 gold instead of 135 (HPotion vs Hcoming Stone) so you waste less time out of XP range. You also could have used your third skill to replenish your health and get your mana up your two mana potions that you bought for completly no reason thus far :P
12:12. You know that you cannot run away from Tremble, it's 100% sure you won't reach protection before he kills you. In those times, just turn around and attack him, at least you'll die trying, hopefully you can survive if Master of Arms and you can finish him off.
So far, it's not the basic support rule of "Don't die", but I'm sure you can improve in that route fairly quickly. Dying greatly reduce your gold and XP income, and having good incomes means you dominate more, this game is all about dominance.
18:32. Not sure why you go back there, get a Blood Chalice for your mana issues using the courier, and go farm the jungle instead! Your time can be better invested, running to base with either your HP or your Mana bar full is rarely a good thing.
Good warding overall, keep that good habit. You also know when to ward offensively/defensively and it's a good thing.
I did not know weither it was a winning or a losing replay before I downloaded it, I guess it's a well earned victory. I hope those little pointers helps.
Feel free to ask if you want another of your replay to be watched
