Sniper isn't really brought along for any reason but his right-click damage.
Because people are dumb. She's much better when given farm than when played as a hard support, but she can fill both roles just fine.On passive-damage-boosts: why then Lina is not played as a carry?
And all heroes have support potential, but some heroes are clearly designed for one role or the other. What's your point? Why is Dota five years ago relevant to Dota today?i again want to highlight that originally dota don't have roles for heroes, heroes was NOT made with "hey, this hero will be able to be efficient without items because others will getting them", the roles was given by players, so, technically, all heroes have carry potential
Because Ogre's farming potential is much less. He's also worse at chasing, and those insane stats make him very item independent. Ogre will always do less right-click damage than PA with the same amount of gold, because PA has more steroids and is designed to carry. Ogre can carry, but his only steroid is a buff that can be given to anyone on his team - it's the same reason you see Magnus built more as a free Battle Fury for the team's actual carry than built as a carry himself.If you build +damage items on both heroes, both will be capable of carrying, but i guess you never seen an ogre played as auto-attack carry
