Ahoy

So, wouldn't the general state of play be improved if every single person played at least 5 games with every single hero?

I've been trying to get a rating with them all and it has been very informative; as it turns out I suck balls at carrying, am OK as an initiator and am marginally less terribad as a support.

Its been frustrating but I can now say that knowing what all the various spells is one thing but actually experiencing them is totally another and overall my play has gotten better.

Anyway, just thought I'd put that out there.

Rather playing ALL heroes it will be confusing DUDE!
I mean if you play a certain role for the hero you need to master the hero first before you will able to play another hero.
And this process will repeat over and over and over again! Man Im getting serous of it why play all hero if you don't know how to play that hero you'll be called retard DUH!!!!
Play certain role before you proceed to the next level

Well, a player can play all heroes, but the question would be; How good does he play each hero? He can for example play a very strong Pudge, but sucks balls with Queen of Pain.

That. Although you don't have to MASTER it well, you just have to know HOW to play it well without feeding/dying too much. And seriously, 5 matches is NOT enough for heroes like :Chen: :Enchantress: , a certain Geomancer for which I can't find the image for, and pretty much other heroes that needs good micromanagement.

What would playing 5 games with Bloodseeker do for me, aside from giving me 5 extra losses?

Its been frustrating but I can now say that knowing what all the various spells is one thing but actually experiencing them is totally another and overall my play has gotten better.

Turns out that if I'm not playing support, the average courier upgrade time for my team is around the 15 minute mark. Even that number's not very accurate because there are plenty of times where I'm playing a mid hero (like Lanaya) and just buy a flying courier out of frustration at around 13 minutes.

I mostly random every game. I can play almost all heroes. (Meepo and Anti-Mage are excluded from this list :() But In my opinion, randoming is the best way to learn all the heroes and at least see where you are, skill wise, with that hero. I don't agree with insta-picking a hero you naturally play all the time. What if you only know how to play a carry, but your team already has 2 hard carries. Same way with supports, can't have so many supports or might as well be Team Squishy.

Randoming / Scroll to a random hero (If you really want to try to learn the hero without the advantage in gold) is the best way to learn all the heroes. It's trial and error, mess up with a hero you randomed, try to get better or avoid that hero!

It would be smart to at least become familiar with all heroes whether it be playing them or sorta "reading up" on them. Just so you know ins and outs, but obviously it's smarter to get into a role you like playing and working on that since there are many heroes that fill the roles anyway.

But that's just a noob's two cents

Of course you will need to know what every hero is capable of. This is a team game, as such, you will need to know what your team has to work with, teamfight, stuns, casting animations, it all matters and if you play every hero at least a few times you will get familiar with them, allowing for better team synergy. Not understanding heroes meaning not know the roles each one is meant to fit. Saying you know how to play a role like support is fine, but if you don't understand how every other role works(how carries find farm, how to give space for your initiator to jump in) then you can't work well as a team.

I am an amazing clockwerk amazing. My last few games ive had a 9/1 K/D But making that point of making room is key. Ill be the last guy in the line marching and i wonder why no one just moves to the side to let me get to the front/hook its ANNOYING. Let the initiaters do there job otherwise you make them worthless.

Heres how i look at it. When your new no matter who you play your gunna be given grief so why not try all the heros in the mean time? It's a smart idea. Learn heros and the basic concept of the game. RANDOM!

Use websites to give you build paths though.

Ive been randoming a lot lately. Carries are my best with tide support second I think. Have had some pretty hopeless team though. Still, i think carries are my best. Tried Devourer for the first time and OWNED with him. I never know he was so good :P

i dont think you should play every hero, get good playing different heroes that have the same role and commit to your role.

Prob. is that a new player must play at least all heroes once, so he knows what the hero does. But not only this, what happens if a player mostly plays supports, but his favorite is a hard carry?

The player should play what he wants to play now, but only if he knows he can play that hero, without screwing his teams line-up (for example he's last pick and the team requires a support, but picks a second hard carry).

Difficult to say, he could start to play the easiest heroes, read some guides and tries things out (Bot games, of course) and if he feels confident enough to play it in a real match, he should play it. Especially without experience against real players he won't learn that much.
