Woah, talk about varying difficulty ... one match the enemy team barely know how to get out of the fountain area... next match my opponents are tearing me a new one.
Wasnt much fun... it was Storm 'here I am' pulling me back, Riki and his smoke ensuring I cant do a thing and death... or Spirit Breaker bash bash bash bash bash ..oh you werent planning on doing anything were you ?
It wasnt like I was wondering around the jungle solo or anything... in the middle of my team and the enemy team target my Jakiro each time .( guess they didnt like my Macro -> Dual breathe -> Ice Path combo I smacked them with and let Sniper get 4 of them one team fight. )

My abilities werent firing off so well, or I am so used to smart casting in LoL when I press a ability I expect it to fire off... not have my hero stand there looking at me like I am stupid or something ... YES I FUCKING WANT TO SPIT DUAL BREATH NOW, I AM SURE, YES I WANT TO CONTINUE... is this a Microsoft thing ?
The sheer number of disables in the game are horrific, and if the numbers the heroes have werent enough... the shop provides about 50 more, and developers wonder why BKB is so popular.

... actually my biggest issue at the moment is the mana control, I was basically tossed in mid again ( AFTER I bought the courier ) so ended in mid with 6 tangos , 1 salve , 2 clarities , and a branch... and spent most of my lane phase OOM despite taking Molten Fire to harrass for free, I simply couldnt get a single proc on the VS opponent I had ( the creeps in Dota are MUCH more aggressive than those in LoL, I so much as click to attack and the enemy creeps are all over me before my hero has actually done the attack... basically giving the enemy free harrass ).

Any tips on what to buy to get my mana more controllable ? I usually look for a Voidstone to get some good regen going... should I look maybe to a bottle if I end up mid, and fight for rune control ( couldnt get one this time as I bought the donkey, last match no one bought and I need to get used to using it ).

Don't spam skills and get a bottle with first 600 you farm up in mid. Mana control really isn't a big issue in DoTA.

For the most part Jakiro doesn't fit in very well at the moment. The amount of highly mobile champions currently in use just stop him being incredibly useful. There are longer or more reliable stuns and better damage elsewhere.

We should get a team sorted out again and join some leagues and have some proper matches, that last one was fun even though we got completely stomped. I think we'd do pretty well with some practice and few matches.

Pub games are really starting to piss me off it's either getting completely stomped or completely stomping, good even games where either team could win happen once in a blue moon, valves match making system is complete shite.

*sigh* Thats DOTA2 , had a bad game as Witch Doctor trying to support a Ursa who took no regen items and started with boots versus a Lich and Weaver. Ursa charges in loses most of his health, I blow my mana pool healing the useless sod ... and he charges back in , and takes a crapload of damage and I use up the last of my mana tossing out the stun.
Didnt enjoy that game at all, I know Witch Doctor is a support but he seems to lack anything active to do when he gets in trouble... toss out the bouncing stun, hit heal and leg it... Maledict didnt seem too effective, least I was dead each time I got that close... and the ulti seems to be a waste, a ward that shoots at heros but is channeled and you need to stand pretty close to the ward to channel it... and nothing stops the enemy from walking away, or killing you instantly.
I couldnt rely on my teammates... Ursa was on his own most of the time, he had boots of speed , Vlads and a Sange... our Zeus, was only after his Ulti... had a refresher and arc boots... Pudge and Riki werent too bad but not enough.
That match lasted 40 odd minutes of slowly getting the fun sucked out of you.

Next match I went Lion! He at least can do something if the enemy comes for you... like the silly Skeleton King who got too brave near my unattended tower...so I ran in and SPIKE!! A few auto attacks and the tower damage done him in for a easy kill , I caught Morph out and Spiked + Hexed him so I had a tonne of time to right click him down.
Wierdest one was walking up to mid, saw the tail end of a Dragon Slave so I walked up to Lina , Spiked then hexed before she got cute, then gave her the ol finger... was having fun, then the enemy team disconnected.
That match lasted 13 mins :cry:

... win loss , 4 wins 3 losses so far... I so noob :lol:

Hmm, I had a really good Witch Doctor game a couple days back if you look at my history. I was practically carrying, so, if you want, you could go through my match history and give that a quick watch.
He's really quite a good support, a solid amount of stun and maledict which can cause a ton of damage so long as it lands and damage is done to those it's on.

Got literally no obligations that don't concern gaming right now so I'm finally going to plough some time into games, this being one of them :D

Trell hit me up with the knowledge bomb that is reddit, after half hour of reading I already know half a dozen things I was doing wrong already lol. Would appreciate some hand holding over the weekend if anyone is up for carrying me through a couple of games <3
