Choosing Lane

You can choose on Mid lane or go with your team's babysitter.

Early game's Strategy

Mid Lane Strategy

In early game, Keep focus on farming. Last hitting creeps and sometimes hit your enemy. You have range advantage, that make you will be more profitable than the enemy in hitting case. But still, your priority is to farming. Hitting your enemy is just to make they afraid to come forward for farming.

Another Lane Strategy

When you go with your team's babysitter, you'll be more focused and easier for last hitting creeps. Lane Supports or Babysitters are Heroes who help their team's Carry control the lane in the early stages of the game. So usually, babysitters will harassing enemies heroes that are in your lane and ease you for farms.

Mid game's Strategy

When you have at least Lothar or Yasha+MoM it's time for you to show. When you do 1 on 1(Killing your enemy by your own), make sure your enemy doesn't have any disabler skill and most of your enemy is far away from you. This is the tips for you : You can see a little map on left bottom side, then see the big red dot. See is there many of your enemies are visibles on the map and far from you. The next condition is the place you want to do 1 on 1. Estimate the time that you need to kill your enemy with the time that the enemy's team need to come(See on the nearest tower that they could teleport on it).

War game's Strategy and Ganking's Strategy

Try to positioning yourself on the FoW. Your first target must be enemies disabler. If your team are the one who want to open the war, Do assasinate first from fog(Before your initiator open the war), then when the enemies disabler have use most of his skill, go ahead and kill all of them. If your enemy hitter(Usually Carry type) approaching you and the enemies disabler are dead, Just hit him if you have MoM/Dominator. I'm pretty sure you will win.(1 on 1 condition XD)

Late game's Strategy

When a long game are happen, change your boot's into boots of travel. It'll speed you up to defend after attack / attack after defend. When you attacking enemy base, use Shrapnel to enemies tower.
