Hello Training Grounds, my name is Baumi and I am a german HoN commentator. I have seen a lot of "I am stuck at XXXX" threads and want to offer you my services to try and help you out.
Through a video. If you leave me one of your average replays I am willing to take a look at it and then create a video afterwards, pointing out your mistakes and telling you how to improve on those. The video would look like this or this. But please keep in mind that this can only work if you give me one of your average replays. You going 15/0 in 10 minutes is worthless and I won't even take a look at it. Pick a replay where you think you did kinda well but still lost.
Why would you trust me?
I don't know. I am not at a high MMR (I was at 1850 before the reset but didn't bother with trying to get back up there since then) and I am by no means an amazing player. But I do know a lot about this game, I am huge fan of eSports in general and always keep up with the competitive scene of Heroes of Newerth. I am a smart guy and I believe that I can help out, but in the end it's up to you.
If there are more submissions than I have time to create videos for I will try to choose replays that cover mistakes of other players as well and will link it to you. Anyways, maybe some of you are interested.
It's going great so far, I will post every video I create with the matching quote right here. I also included some additional links to some of my older videos down below, just in case anyone is interested in those.

#4: brized Cthulhuphant P2
#5: basic early game positioning
#7: Dual Jungle

zephyr owns me mid but i still manage to farm after laning phase.i do a bit more ganks than he does(tremble is a ganker duuh),and let him farm mid.he outlevels me and then kills me easy.probably because they start pubtraining?not sure about my item choices,yet without them i would have been dead.we manage to win after winning a few teamfights,and i do believe it is because of their pubtrain.have i carried my team or they carried me?(ignore the chat please XD)
ok lost mid against a zephyr,but still managed to win the game.i am not sure if barrier idol was a good itemchoice for me,but since we had no other "tank",it really helped my team against all that magic damage,not to mention that being hellflowered by vindicator is a pain >.< .Daemonic was another choice i made since i saw zephyr make it so i had to counter that,and it is also a nice item for me(atk speed,-armor on towers or the other squishy heroes).After that,another funny item choice:FFP.i believe that adding more armor would make me very tanky,the bonus mana would solve all my mana problems and the aoe slow is really good for me,my team and my friend's riftwalker+maliken combo.i even manage to get my last kill on vindicator at the maximum range with ffp lol.

I'll vouch for l34Um1. He's beaten me twice (once on the account before reset and once on another mid-1600 account). Someone to look out for if you're Q'ing in the mid-1600's-lower-1700's because of pretty good lineups and solid play. Also have heard a lot of nice things about his vids and his knowledge of the game. +1. :3

This sounds very cool. I would hope you have some time to review my recent blacksmith support game. I feel like I got too greedy early game and that their team was too strong for our team, but maybe I missed some gameplay mistakes I made.
then what can you call an "average game"?it should be a lost game or a 1-15 score game? sorry if i haven't understood the therm.
If you have some time please take a look at this. 97030733. It really bothers me that we lost this because even with -1 player in the team I feel we should should have been able to win... What do I need to do better to win this kind of games? I even tried pimping TDL with my own items but to no avail.
Here you go, tell me what you think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-d3yza6SeE
I liked the video Baumi... are you accepting casual games as well? I'm stucked in the 1550 pool xD
I would also fall zephyr into ganker category, because he really wont outcarry anything later. He shines early and mid game thanks to the huge tankiness which should be easy to obtain because of the awesome farming ability. And when zephyr really gets the farm, few kills, few towers, crazy amount of creeps and those arent even hard to obtain he becomes a total monster. I've had mock, helm, ghost marchers and vestments before 20minutes easily many many times. At that point zephyr can literally go 1v5 and get a couple of kills + escape (Cant remember how much they nerfed the cyclone heal but even now I think it is possible). He is a bit like elec you have to man up with that hero.
He is one of my favorite and one of the easiest heroes to solo win games. I dont like him because he is so easy, I started to solo stomp games with zephyr before he was considered very strong. He was nerfed "too hard" for many ppl and they completely forgot the hero while I accidently had to play him mid and realized he is very strong.
Big + helping people out and helping them improve! Especially good is how much time you put into each replay, keep up the good work!
Hi, first i just want to say im a long time fan and i love your videos. :]
I was hoping you could watch this game "97749469" I play Dampeer and my team wins kinda easily but i still think it's a good example of how i play when i play as i normally do. I end up 10 and 2 but the reason i pick this game is because it's a game where i play like to my full potential and i do what i can. I was going to link a game where i lost but i just feel like this is a game where i do my best and dont make mistakes that i know that i shouldn't do if you know what i mean.
I hope you'll look at this game, thanks in advance. Believing

Guys, I just want to tell you that I sadly can't do any analysis on any of your replays for the next week or so. I currently am in a hospital with a crappy laptop and a crappy internet connection and can't take a look at your games. But please keep the replays coming, I will look at them as soon as I get home. I am really sorry but this wasn't my choice and I will get surgery tomorrow.
i really like whay you doing baumi i even want to send you my own match id replay ! hahaha
i just get out from 1200 mrr to 1550 mmr actual now, and uping, (in 1 month)
I made a post on forums, some one add me , and we become great friends
he is 1700++ normal mmr, but use some free account to play with me (he was playing with moonmender) yesterday
and Cerris, we found him playing, we add him to the next game, and is allways great to have it in ur queue group he is 1660++ and allways do a great job carryng.
So Add Me "Hitokkiri" maybe u want to say "!hey guys i wanna play X char" then if it's a carry we pick 2 support 1 tank, or 1 tank 1 support 1 range carry and gg
Well that sucks. I wish you a speedy recovery.
Whenever you get the time I think this is a perfect replay of me doing well throughout the game but still losing. There were certain parts of the game where i think scout threw very hard but I know with the stellar start I had I could have done more to win the game. I play Monkey King mid and start the game 9-0-2 game goes to 55 minutes and we lose.
