Comments on improvement would be appreciated.
He is really much more usefull and dominant in a side lane.
Middle lane should go to another hero imo. A hero with great ganking potential, which DS really doesn't have.
considering i got first blood, out farmed him.
and we had arachna who wasn't confident.
Just cause you outfarmed someone with DS mid doesn't make it the best idea. If you had an unsure arachna then that makes more sense. The point of having someone solo is to have the level up for ganking utility which DS isn't as great as.
I can dominate a side lane as easily as the mid with DS no point in taking away solo from someone who can carry. DS can't carry by himself.
2. I'm also aware he isnt a carry.
3. I'm also aware he gave me good advice, but i was more refering to pathing/cooldowns/positioning.
Did not want this to become a "ds middle rant" as im aware he is not a very viable middle hero.
I love playing shaman, he's deceptively fast, has short cds across the board, and great abilities. I like to use him mid game as a hit n run, assisting a gank. ult at the start of the gank, hold the carry, and fire in heals and capes to your teammates from the woods. count your assists.
then buy according to the situation, either full support or shock trooper (slash, charged hammer :P)
in EM he's a hard carry given a great farm and a noob carry on the other team
