Ranged Carries vs. Melee Carries

I'm in a stats game, 1600+ as usual, easy mode.  (I know, what a noob!)  I find easy mode more fun, blow me if you think your epeen is bigger.   

Anyways, we have an Accursed, Torturer, Pyro, and slither.  I still haven't picked, and the clock is ticking down. (Damn the shortened timer.)  All of the sudden my chat log is filled with "purp carry"  "need carry".  Alright.  I hate playing Magebane, or Chronos, but love to play Corrupted Disciple.  So I right click him to preselect.  

There's 5 seconds left on the clock and all I hear is people shouting..  I would tell you what they were shouting about but it sounded like they were speaking Portuguese or some language that definitely wasn't English.  Before the game even starts, were sitting in the well and my team is already saying gg, no carry.  I proceed to carry the team to victory (Pro, I know.)  So then I started thinking.  Melee vs Ranged carries.

  1. Ignoring the last comment, I would have chosen a melee carry considering the group make up that you have. E.g you have ~ 2 stuns and a major slow, also accursed offers shield which protects in team battles.

  10. I dislike carrying just because I'm not a leader type person (though I do like initiating with pebbles). Carries are pretty dependent on their teammates (non-em) and so if I'm stuck in the 1650+ with idiots who were carried to 1650, there's no point in trying to carry if your teammates can't support you.
