What makes a carry "hard"?

#1TME_GuyPosted 2/19/2013 3:42:02 AM
idk all heroes can be used to carry, but there are others that are hard and semi. I just wanna know how "hard" is the hard carry, and which heroes are the "hard" ones and why.

Just had a WC3 game Dota where somebody told me that Lina is a hard carry and she demands farm.... farm for a Dagon >_______________<

I can't tell you what heroes are hard carries. I only know that a hard carry requires a lot of farm but dominate teamfights when they get it.

Carry is a role, not an inherent trait of a hero. A carry prioritizes farming during the early stages of the game instead of ganking or pushing. Hard carries take the concept to the extreme, usually avoiding direct engagements with the opposing team for 25+ minutes while they farm up the inventory they need to take over the game.

Because playing as a hard carry puts your team on the defensive for so long it's generally only worth attempting with heroes who scale extremely well with items. Here's a list of the most common options for the role:
-Medusa
-Spectre
-Faceless Void
-Phantom Lancer

And with that...pow! I'm gone!

Carries are heroes that scale well with items. Hard carries are heroes that are mostly useless until they gets those items.

I'm under the impression that a hard carry is something that is considered a "Right Click Hero" or doesn't do well in the beginning but once they get their items near the end game they will outclass everyone else on the board.

They are hard by having a steroid or 2.
