Lesson description

Smoking is another significant and underappreciated aspect of Dota 2, especially at low MMR. One of the most significant factors that separate amateur position 4 players from professional ones is the proper use of smokes. Smokes are a great tool to make sure that your movement between lanes is successful. There are generally two reasons why you would use smokes in the early game. Either to get a kill or to set up vision. In the first part of this episode, Cr1t shows how he uses smokes to get kills on the enemy mid laners. A trick he does is smoke on a ward where he shows he is pathing one way and then do a wrap-around in the other direction. Doing so leads to an easy kill because the enemy mid lane does not expect it to happen. It ends up securing the midlane because now SF has died twice in a row and no longer has TP. The most important thing to consider when smoking is to achieve something. Furthermore, if you are smoking to get a kill, you want to make sure you have as few heroes as possible in the smoke. If all heroes are missing from the map, it is a huge giveaway. If you only need 2 or 3 heroes for a kill, then make sure you only smoke 2 or 3 people.
