    My style is more assassination and death bringing in rapid blows. I tend to play with Sniper (Kardel), Luna and Silencer (Nortrom). Tend to make enemy go back and forth, slowing their level gain.

    For more fun experience, I play with Techies and plant bombs like no tomorrow, placing them at most unsuspected areas.

    I love Sniper and Luna too. Silencer, in the past. With Sniper I build Wraith Band, Mask of Madness and Crystalis first.

    With so many people playing the Carry roles, most of the time I play Support. Lich may not be the most original character in DotA 2 but still he's my favorite hero. Because he's sooo easy to use and pretty much can kill fragile early and mid carry heroes on clashes and ganks with Chain Frost.

    Lina's on my list too but I find her harder to maneuver.

    For occasional Carry roles I go with N'aix and Chaos Knight.
    Riki, Phantom Assassin, and Sniper are so overrated in Dota 2 :/

    I remember the time when Aghanim's for Lich only improved bounces by a number. I thought he's OP now. :> But the speed is so slow, in DotA 1 it always hits after a certain duration.

    I'm developing a liking to Windranger, I start off with Talisman, Phase Boots, Desolator, then MKB. So fun to ks stuff 2.6k range away.

    Windranger is great. I really like how you can fill out the gaps in a team with her. If people aren't buying wards, I buy wards. If I'm not sure we will have a mid and my team doesn't communicate, I pick Windranger and go mid if needed. She's so hard to catch as well. Forcestaff Windranger is fun. Greatest item ever on greatest hero ever hands down no questions asked woosh yep-yep up and around swish wablamo zip-zap next level prior level every level yep-yep. :]

    My fave support to play is still Disruptor... I'm just quite good with it when the need comes... I really like how you can easily use his skills to either save your team or destroy your enemies.

    1. Lion( Although, Aghanim. Aw, Valve dares to AoE it)
    2. Shadow Fiend ( One time requiem for Rampage? )
    3. Sniper ( New remade spell is more stronger )
    4. Bloodseeker [OLD] ( I love old BS. I am almostly noobed after remake )
    5. Tiny ( If I always picks him. There is Techies always too. Techies Bomb + Tiny's toss = First Blood )

    I remember this one time where me and my colleagues played and they asked me to go support then I picked Disruptor, they told me it wasn't support. Then the battle started and the Disruptor made the difference in that game. Kill enemies? Done. Need backup? Done. Need to stop enemy from following? Done. Trap enemies for carnage in clash? Done. Not perfect play though, I had some errors too. Like one time I used the field to stop the enemy from advancing, not realizing that my teammates are ready to kill it... XD

    Lina's become a favorite over Lion. For me, sure, Lion may deal ~760 damage at late game (take Ethereal and Discord out) but Lina instakills people mid game and due to her E, she has massive potential with Malevolence (+AS). Then, she can use the item's active to boost her ult to 1235 pure damage.

    One thing I hate though is that a lot of people doesn't use these super high damage spells to their full potentials... XD
