Looking for team members
I'm Eric the Red Mage. I started playing DotA 2 for the first time about 2-3 months ago. Since I've started I've played Death Prophet pretty much exclusively as 2nd support, utility, and semi-carry. I'm starting to branch out now and I'm looking for other players who are friendly, have a sense of humor, and are interested in learning how to play DotA better.

I am currently Skill Level 13 [somewhere around 104W/110L/4A] with 260 hours logged. I'm at my computer pretty much every day from 2pm to 2am EDT. I have plenty of commendations and can both lead and follow with some semblance of competency. I'm looking for people who are generally casual at the moment but would be willing to play competitively as we grow as a team. People who can stay level headed even when Phantom Lancer is OP or Zeus steals your kills.

Main Requirements:
  • Must speak and understand English well
  • Must play on North American Servers
  • Must be 18 years or older

This is a plus:
  • Has a working Microphone
  • Between skill levels 10-15
  • Knows how to play support
  • If you're from Florida we might be able to do some meetups or something.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My personal weaknesses:
  • Very inexperienced playing Hard Carry or Hard Support
  • I'm not a good Jungler, nor do I have much experience stacking/pulling/counter-warding camps
  • I'm a bit hot headed when I'm doing well. I've occasionally been known to jump headlong into a group of 3+ enemy heroes and I've also been guilty of Kill stealing in the heat of battle from time to time :P

If you play these heroes well, we might be best friends:
  • Sand King
  • Omniknight
  • Faceless Void
  • Phantom Assassin
  • Ursa
  • Crystal Maiden
  • Enigma
  • Dark Seer
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm still more or less a casual/new player, but I've learned a lot my first few months playing. This is sorta an extravagant post regarding a team, but it's 'cause I value team work and camaraderie. I'm tired of the luck of the draw in matchmaking. I want a team to play and learn with. Most of all, I want a team that likes to laugh[lolbot.net].

If you are interested post below:
  • How long you've been playing MOBAs / DotA 2
  • Your skill level and your win count (optional, loss count as well)
  • Your favored position, heros, and lane
  • Your strengths as player
  • Your weaknesses as a player
  • Your level of interest in competitive play

If you can find someone who likes to play carry, i absolutely love playing the 4 and 5 role, with shadow demon being my best support. I like to have fun I take responsibility for my mistake and after every death/loss, i try to explain to myself what i could have done better.

To answer your questions

* Played League for about 2 years i have about 1500 games played and got up to 1450 elo in season one and started playing dota in I think march of last year, i only have 400 games though as playing support is hard in pubs so i mostly play with a friend

I am in normal skill level, my win record is 190 - 207

My favorite position is 4/5 favorite characters are shadow demon, Disruptor, Lina, Lion, Keeper, Venge, Ancient Apparition and I also freaking love playing wisp.

My strengths i would say are I really like to play support i am incredibly selfless and don't mind being stuck at level 2 because i managed to keep my carry safe while he farmed and i managed to stay out of exp range. I know how to stack and pull including the pull where you speed farm each camp and pull over the hard camp. I have some experience with chen and Enchantress (hard to practice these in pubs due to lane composition). And also i know how to tri lane.

Weaknesses, Sometimes i attempt to give too much farm to everyone who's not me and don't realize when it's time for me to just take the farm myself. Sometimes i will disrupt the wrong target when it should have been pretty obvious which person to disrupt. In pubs occasionally i will forego buying early wards so that i can eek out my tier 2 boots that much quicker.

I have a working mic and incredibly flexible work hours so if you build a team, i am available whenever and can practice as long as you want. I don't get flustered so you will never have to worry about me raging at teamates or not wanting to practice due to a previous game.

If ever you want to play feel free to message me, though like i said earlier i would prefer to play with someone who plays carry's because sometimes supporting pubs is annoying.

Also, I understand that you would want to build a good team so if you find that i'm not on par with what your looking for i have no problem with you replacing me.

Hey man,
I've been playing Dota since December. Even though I've been playing a short while I am at a much higher skill level than my level would indicate. I started playing dota with some of my friends and they have taught me how to play the game. So instead of bumbling around in public matches I've been actively learning since December from people that are level 40+.

My current record is 113 - 93. Here's a link to my dotabuff profile:
http://dotabuff.com/players/76220948

I can play any role, I am considerably weaker at playing carries because I've been playing support for my friends since December.

Strengths: I have no problem playing any role that fits the team. I have been playing random since I started the game so I have a decent understanding of the majority of the heroes that are available.

Weaknesses: I am new to the game and it's mechanics but I am getting better.

I am very competitive and I am sick of playing public matches with people that don't care, don't speak english, or both.

I have a working mic.
