I used to be decent with many different champions, but as I level up, I can only compete effectively with the ones I'm more used to. I think it's a mixture of my getting used to combos/capabilities, and the other higher-level players are also more specialized.
Fiddle is fun. I just started playing with him. Decided to try it since I'm used to ranged carries and wanted a Jungler. He can chew through it with blue buff, and if nobody's watching he can take out dragon ridiculously early. He's meh for ganking, but also solid team player in the end. Popping out of bushes is the best.

Jerk level is through the roof. I don't remember DOTA well enough to compare, but I'm sure it was through the roof then too. Either way it makes me glad I'm not in high-school or whenever it was that being a constant shithead was an acceptable way to live.

The jerks rarely bother me, and I'm not sure why. I think the Honor Initiative is doing some good along those lines.

I play as TMQMO, because it wouldn't let me have a 3 character name.

I don't play this game and have no idea what you are talking about.

Don't play a ton anymore, but I used to have a group of 5-7 friends who were pretty dedicated. My favorite heroes are Irelia, Mordekaiser, and LeBlanc.

I did Jungle Fiddlesticks the other night. I don't jungle very well. I read that Fiddlesticks can totally take Dragon at level 5, and it didn't work out. What am I missing?

Fiddle is all about AP and life drain. You had life drain at level 3 and were using AP runes, right?

Having blue buff is important. Chugging a healing pot will help a lot. If you really want to push it, you can chug AP pots too. But I wouldn't risk losing a nice start. Fiddle skills take some getting used to in general, fear is his only standard spell.

Fiddle was one of the easiest heroes for me to pick up, personally. Life drain is pretty straight forward. Fear is pretty straight forward. Combine the two, and you can do a lot of hurt... and you haven't even touched his ult yet.
