Oh, I'm Starling.
And to be fair, I knew Chambz was bad, he's one of my friends, but I would hope that his bad MMR would offset my good MMR and we'd get semi average allies. Sniper wasn't present for a single team fight and furion died half a second in...pretty frustrating.
I always random. Though I think I picked CK - I probably randomed Chen or something and repicked. Don't log on DotA2 to play boring heroes >_>
Also, there's a pretty common mentality that you feed off the bad players and then use that advantage to crush the good players. If you win bot and lose mid and top, fully expect 3-5 man ganks bot repeatedly until you're doing just as bad as the rest of your team. Alternatively, people will just use the advantage to team push. Lost to a game of 4 carries yesterday, they raxed at 18 minutes. Team of carries, raxed at 18 minutes....yeah, you won't see that again in a long time.
To be fairly honest, the frag says very little. I've seen many games where we lost only because we had a passive mid ganker where enemy mid was roaming all around the map.
About Russians, they're not playing in their servers. They persist on playing EU.

KDA on supports doesn't mean a whole lot. As you see in my screenshot, enemy team has 1-5 dazzle, 6-9 rubick, 5-8 undying. It's the 2-12 furion you have to look at, his awesome item choices, and the same for Lion who managed to save up 2200g and decided to spend it on BoTs which help him not at all against open wounds or 500 movespeed invoker...
KDA on carries matters. Even if your team is doing poorly you will do your job as a carry better afking in the base than dying. Losing your lane, go somewhere else or the jungle, every carry should know this. To go 0-5 as juggernaut in the first 10 minutes of the game is just unacceptable in any game, really, doesn't matter how the rest of your team is doing.
My opinions anyway. You could also argue that kills on supports are very bad and almost guaranteed to be killsteals from carries in most situations.
Mirana's annoying. Slow projectile speed, she doesn't have the mana to do much of anything for the first 2/3 of the game, and squishy. Dunno why anyone would pick her of a lot of other ranged carries. Her ulti's pretty fantastic (if she can afford to cast it!), but she just seems kinda poopy compared to other ranged carries.

A lot of games I have less than 5 kills and more than 15 assists and never had income problems.
Heh, had a 1/8/6 game as Krob. Too bad it didn't show that I pushed down 5 towers and ate 2 rax solo
I don't know if you played LoL but the support philosophy you are explaining belongs to LoL.
ah and Mirana is not annoying, you just need a bottle. She can be semi-carry at best. Her role is more of roaming all around and ganking with her arrow. If you got hit over 3 seconds in a gank situation you're most likely dead.

but I do doubt your knowledge about DotA especially after your brilliant analysis about the reason behind the lost.
"we lost because my blackhole get last hits" really?
but not because your stupid carry tried to gank instead of some solid farm?

One of them was typing in colour as well which i'm pretty sure you're not supposed to be able to do
After making friends with one american I might just start playing US East exclusively. Russians really are getting to me that badly

The new russian server is based in Stockholm, Sweden and the game keeps forcing me into Russian chat when I log in. The joy.
