    shadow demon still isnt a support
    He is a support because he is item independent. He also has two amazing harrass skills, a damage amplifier and a slow, which his team mates or carry benefit from. Being item independent, he should let the carry take last hits because he is already efficient without items; one skill is an anti-carry and disable ability, the second is a damage amplifier, the third is a decent harrass and occasionally, a good nuke (assuming the enemy is dumb enough to stick around) and the fourth is a slow, nuke and purge, which is pretty useful. He also has no existing mana problems.

    That is why he, as well as some other heroes who don't seem like it, are supports; they don't need money.

    You just went in a circle. Also support doesn't mean straight up "because he doesn't have an item dependency he is support." His skills allow him to maintain a steady balance within the team, so if laning with a carry would be ideal for him not to last hit. A support is having abilities that are able to crowd control, heal, and they do very little damage. All a support really has to do is buy wards, mek, etc., people like Windrunner of which doesn't have an item dependency can easily Semi-Carry or Support the team through items, Shadow Demon, well no. He's both item dependant and skill dependant.

    He is easy to stomp with but most people here don't like him because he is a bad hero since he lacks CC and is kinda worthless when not fed

    What do I do as Skeleton King if I'm getting dived early game, can't get a decent farm because they are constantly diving before I can hit level 6, and whenever I go into the jungle they send clinkz and QOP after me and even if I get away with low hp zeus ults. I couldn't do shit all game and my support was stealing farm from me.

    Oh well..Just having bad games today I guess...
    I had a co-op bot game where 1 person disconnected immediately after picking Dazzle and never came back (it gave us a Vengeful bot to make up, though?). I picked Dragon Knight and laned with a Death Prophet that auto-attacked and stole pretty much all my last hits (she didn't care, either, because "it's a bot game"), and we didn't get a single kill until half an hour into the game. Our second kill came at 41:00. We had a great early push, but in the end, the bots raped up because we couldn't hold up in a team fight at all.

    He has a Silence and a root of some sorts.
    Yeah, you can move, but you will shit blood and take shitloads of damage if you decide to do so.
    The reason why he's easy to stomp as, because people in pubs don't have brain capacity to have consumable items (TP in this case, but also Dust/wards) in their inventories to hard-counter him.

    I meant he lacks good CC especially since his ult gets beaten by a 135 gold item

    I only played Zeus becuase i accidentaly search the gamemode where u can only pick three heroes an zues was the only one that seemed cool, i chose bouny hunter because he looked cool. The other two i just chose cuz i liked how their abilites sounded.

    I tell people to get scrolls if they're gonna deal with bloodseeker but they never listen. They just tell me to fuck off then call him OP or don't even realize running kills you.

    All mine abandons come from connection issues. I wish there was way to make up for them, like joining game where someone abondoned and playing as him.

    I hoped never to get an abandon, but for some reason even though a game was safe to leave it added that horrible '1' to the counter.

    had a pretty nice game as WD, seems to be my designated support

    AM even said that we won because of my heals and that made me feel special :)
    He was fucking nuts though, basically at 10% health the entire game and still killing them inside their base. ended up having no mana ever because i kept spamming heals but i guess in the end it worked out.

    also semi-related:
    is weaver completely 100% useless or does everyone just suck as him? even when my team has done very well the weaver seems to be doing the least.
