Edit: Also, when you go into champion select and there's only 3 heroes to choose from, do you really have to pick just one of those 3 characters?  What if their all awful?

you can select game mode before you search for a match; make sure it's set to 'all-pick'.

regarding micro heroes: some characters can control units that have their own sets of skills. for example enchantress, who can charm jungle creeps and use them to help her gank (which is super neat because some creeps have a stun, or a ranged nuke, or a channeled tornado). or phantom lancer, who can make up to 8 clones of himself and use them to farm the jungle/gank/deal retarded dps.

You just choose where you want your saw to go initially (like most ultis) except he chooses when to let it return to himself like a boomerang, you don't control it like a hero.

Timbersaw can sit in the terrible micro corner with the other terrible micro heroes.

Nobody likes my layout? Sad

Anyway, I suggest some heroes like Sven, LION, and LICH. Sven will get you ready to have carry potential and feel the speed of the game compared to LoL. Lion and Lich both have money shot skills and are really great utility heroes. Lion has practically the same ulti as Lina but has more dependable disables than her. Lich's ulti is easy to pull off if you can understand it. Smiley Try them out!

All the heroes are cool anyway and you can play every hero differently as they can be played in a variety of ways. All of them except Drow Ranger because she is boring.

Also putting your cursor on top of the skill icon will show you the range it has. It's also written sometimes.

re: range

type dota_disable_range_finder 0 in console. it shows you the range in the form of a green line when you press a skill. if you move the cursor outside the range, the line turns red.

also dota_range_display 1200 is good if you're playing anti-mage or qop or to want to get used to experience range. very handy if you're trying to leech xp and trying to be as far away as possible.

Short cooldown abilities that require special targets. That's micro to me, but you're free to disagree.

The problem with Timbersaw is that some of his skills need trees to work, and his other skills destroy trees. This makes him highly unintuitive to play compared to other heroes. He's also not a very good hero in general. I think his win rate is almost as low as Meepo right now.

I'm pretty drunk all the time but I enjoy playing support. I can walk around and do whatever and HELP and not get yelled at.

One of my friends used to make fun of me because I get Tranquil Boots on Rikimaru. I couldn't help smiling when I watched this N0tail video and noticed he had a pair of tranqs on. Vindication!
