A good carry player needs to have a deep understanding of Dota 2 and clear goals in mind. This episode teaches you what 23 savage is thinking at all times and what he considers to be the most important things he always keeps at the back of his mind.
Dota 2 is a complex game and no two heroes are alike. However, a lot of them can be categorized into a few groups. Learn the similarities and differences between heroes and their respective playstyles.
Now that you understand the different types of carry heroes and playstyles its important to take a look at how to select the right hero in the right game. 23Savage has a few tips for you when it comes to choosing the perfect hero.
23Savage cannot stress enough how important it is to get the right starting items if you want to have a good lane. Here are the subtle differences that can make a break your lane depending on how you spend your initial 600g.
The laning stage is perhaps the most important part of the game for a carry player because it directly impacts your ability to single-handedly snowball and carry the game. Here's how 23savage approaches hard matchups and how he plays the game even in the roughest conditions.
Knowing how to handle easy laning phases is just as important as knowing how to play hard matchups. In high MMR games, good carry players will punish every move from the offlaner and heres how 23savage does it.
Every game there is a moment when you must leave the lane. In this video, 23Savage explains what are some of the factors he takes into consideration before making the judgement call to leave the lane either for a gank, rotation, objective play or simply to find a different farming spot.
The best of the best players always think of what item to buy next so, in this video, 23savage presents his thoughts on how to buy the correct item so you don't end up throwing your lead or even worse, the game.
Every item that you get during a match should be either to further play on your hero's strengths or get rid of your weaknesses. This significantly alters the way you will have to play the map. Here's 23Savage on what his decision-making process is like and how items change his view of the game.
It should come as no surprise that farming is perhaps the most important role you need to accomplish as the position 1 player. However, effective farming comes under many different shapes and forms and they often change mid match.
The dead lane is usually referred to as the lane where you show up to die. This is usually where the most dangerous farm on the map lies and sometimes it's going to be your duty as the carry to farm this space so your team can either recover or keep snowballing.
In this video, 23Savage teaches you that there are 2 types of deaths. The good ones and the bad ones. You need to be able to distinguish which scenario is which and even though you should look to minimize your deaths, sometimes it is necessary for the greater good.
Great carry players also have great game sense. Master the art of tracking your enemy and learn how to tell if you are going to be ganked, under pressure or if the team is smoked and looking for you.
One common mistake that carry players do across all MMRs is succumbing to the temptation of sitting back and farming all game. However, this is the wrong approach because it isn't always the most optimal and efficient way to victory. 23Savage teaches you how to play fast and push your advantage as soon as possible.
All the gold in the world will not save you from losing the game if you don't know the intricacies of team fighting such as target selection, positioning, timing and poking. All of these concepts and more are explained by 23Savage in this video.
In this video, 23Savage takes a look at a low MMR replay to identify some common mistakes that you might be doing as well in the 2-6k Bracket.
In this video, 23 Savage plays lina and shows you how to 1v9. 1v9 means playing your game, muting all teammates and only focusing on your gameplay. This is often considered one of the best strategies to carry even the most annoying teammates who queue only so they can give up in the first 5 minutes.
