    I think im done supporting in pubs, theres no point. Ide rather lose as 5 carries than be blamed for everything.

    Im always the only support, and people constantly whine when I either dont have money for wards, smokes, items.

    Or they whine when I forget to use one of my 9 fucking spells. Must be so hard right clicking to win.

    I remember being yelled at for "not warding runes". Had wards on both runes 'till ~14 minute, our mid liner haven't got any rune for all this time. Now i see no point in warding pre late game at all

    People tend to give up quicker on mid-high MMR and then it drastically changes when you get to very high MMR. It's funny because people think they are so good at that level and they can quickly see if game is lost or not.

    People will always find something to blame others for, regardless of what hero you play.

    I get this "I'm done supporting!" feeling from time to time. But then I realize that if I won't buy wards, our team will have limited vision, if I won't buy sentries and/or gem, stealthers will rape us, and if I won't buy dusts, we'll never ever ever ever kill that Weaver. My friends tell me that I should stop caring and start playing like everyone else (i.e. fool around), but what's the point in playing a game if you don't care about winning and/or don't do whatever it takes to win? I don't get it. So I keep playing supports.

    Guess my MMR is ultra-low then.

    The most infuriating thing is, that no one picks supports, its so annoying. Even in the enemy team its always carries, I swear the international gave us a new batch of retards to contest with.

    people dont pick supports, because they dont wanna play 20 minutes on brown boots and wand and being yelled at for not buying wards all the time and for what, a carry that cant lasthit and has no map awareness and mid that ignores runes even if you ward them? You kinda loose interest in being the sacrifical hero for the team if the team doesnt pay you back with the advantages you gave them, Id rather stick to being mid/ganker and do stuff that actually hurts enemy rather than help my allies without knowing if they can capitalize on it.

    You can easily get quite a lot of farm as a support in pubs, the pull camp is rarely warded even in v high. For fun, I occasionally even start with 0 gold(ie buy a bottle for the mid, or cour+wards+consumables for others)

    But i can't really be arsed to do that for randoms that random, start with 850g, buy boots as first items, miss a lot of cs as carrys or throw games.

    I've never been yelled at for not buying wards or only having brown boots by my teammates. Maybe because I actually buy wards.

    Really? I solo queue most often and I almost always see it warded.

    I love playing support too. But only when I'm playing with people I know. If I'm playing a pub game, I normally just go with a carry or something so I can at least do something if our team isn't exactly on top of things. But with friends, playing support can be just as fun as playing a hard carry. I dunno why people don't like it.

    Ye, I love when you are solo support, you buy both courier and wards. 3 mins into the game the mid is screaming at you for not upgrading the courier ._.

    Yeah. Somehow you're supposed to give a carry free farm and have everything up; anti wards, smokes, normal wards, couriers and also tping every where to counter gank else you are the most horrible support ever.

    I remember in wc3 when courier was implemented you could just don't turn on shared units to people. I WISH I COULD DO THE SAME IN DOTA 2.
    Like, hey, you called me a pussy? then have fun running to fountain for your items bitch.

    yes, this is part of playing support. i think its funny some people think Carry is the hard role, when you are playing support you DO need to put this stuff up. Nobody said it was easy.

    Also; my steam name is VisceralViscous. Feel free to add if you want to see how to play support

    Then again I've always preferred supporting roles in all multiplayer games, whether it be playing a tank or healer in WoW or playing Medic in TF2.

    I'm not 100% sure why most people dislike playing support (in any game) although I guess I'd put my money on it having to do with K/A/D's in those games as it's much more noticeable if you're doing well as the killy guy than as a support.

    I don't play support because if your team is behind and the game is a bit passive, you just run around trying not to get caught and stand and watch rest of your team farm.
