Lesson description

Warding in Dota 2 is one of the most significant aspects of the game, and supports are mostly the ones in charge of it. When playing position 4, it is vital to pay close attention to where the enemy is warding, especially in the first ten minutes of the game. Most of the time, it is your responsibility to get wards out before the game starts if your hero has very high mobility. (e.g., Earth Spirit with Rolling Boulder). Besides showing the most common warding spots for both Radiant and Dire, Cr1t- also explains the way he thinks about warding. There are multiple types of Mid heroes that do different things, and you need to ward accordingly. If they play heroes like TA or Meepo that love to farm ancients, then you want to be warding that part of the map. However, if the enemy mid laner is more of a ganker, then it is more important to ward the river. In general, getting your vision out before the enemy gives you a significant advantage because it allows you to see where the enemy has vision. Paying attention to where the enemy has vision will make it easier for you to play position 4, and set yourself up for successful ganks. In the later stages of the game, if you happen to ward as position 4, it is mostly in grouped smokes. If your smoke breaks in this situation, you need to instantly drop a ward on high ground before initiating to ensure that your team has vision to follow up and team fight.
