Gold and experience

We will need to get gold and experience, both for our hero will fulfill its role in the game much more efficiently. Experience will level up, which in turn will allow us to learn a skill or improve some have already learned.

Our hero will gain experience every time an enemy creep dies near him, or even need to hurt to make it happen. However, if we also want to get gold, give the final blow (lasthit) to kill a creep. Of course, enemy heroes also give gold and experience, and although not directly kill the hero, if we have helped make gold also get assistance.

The buildings also give gold, and in the case of the towers, each time one is destroyed, our team will get gold.

Crossing the river

The river divides the territory between the Scourge and the Sentinel. Please be cautious when crossing the middle of the map, one of the most common mistakes is to enter enemy territory with the creeps, and are getting killed because of carelessly. Unless you count with close allies, or you are not very good escaping you advance, because the enemy territory is the main target of attacks and ganks.

Mid game

This phase begins at the moment the stop heroes kept in a line. It usually happens after level 6, when you learn the ultimates. They start the ganks (a gank is killing an enemy exploiting an advantage, such as numerical superiority), and pushes (a push is to move to a tower with creeps to destroy it).

Late game

From around level 15, when the game takes about 30 minutes late game is called. The heroes are stronger and have already completed several objects. Any fight can mean winning or losing the game, so it is important to stay together and not be in a bad position catch.


It is important to note that heroes can play several roles within a game, and not have to be the same on different items, as there are many heroes that can be played in different ways. Usually a team should have at least one support, one ganker and carry, but there are thousands of combinations effective, and always raw level players on the heroes. Although obviously a team with 4 Carries have to lose against one balanced.

These are the main roles:

Carry or hard-carry
