In pubs, to me, it's important to have a hero that can be the "playmaker", control the tempo of the game - more often than not, team that starts moving around the map and killing people will win out in pubs - even in my tier ("very high skill") 9/10 times people will still stay in lane and farm (even if they aren't carries) than come and TP to help someone being ganked.

Most hated? Whatever's currently "broken".
Right now, it'd be Undying. He's basically uncounterable in pubs if he's got a pushing teammate or two.
And Dark Seer, always Dark Seer. No nerfs are enough for the mofo.
He's been top pick/top ban forever now.
And Drow. A nooby, no skill hero that can rip you apart with half the farm of your carry. (she isn't "OP", just annoying)
Funny you should list your favorite role as semi-carry. I've been wanting to try out some more carry type heroes after playing almost exclusively as support. I want to last hit more. Is there any way you would recommend getting good at the role of semi-carry other than just roaming around for ganks more often?
