Some tips off the top of my head:

  • Cut creep waves when they push, meaning they only get their current creep wave to push or are forced to delay by a full minute. Also the sense of urgency they may experience will drive a lot of teams to try and take a fight that they otherwise wouldn't, allowing you and your team to punish them bum-rushing the high ground.

  • Vlads is for when you are ahead, generally. If your team needs you to come online asap, usually you'll be able to have more impact on the game with a quick manta. Also if they have an orchid carrying mid hero like QOP or Storm, they're going to hunt you until you have manta, usually with 2 or more other heroes. Going vlads may end up costing you a lot of map control in this situation.

  • Don't get too worked up about your battlefury timing. Treads first is generally the best option as it allows you to have a stronger lane presence. If you're left alone in lane (on dire) once your support rotates try pushing out the lane as quickly as possible, then pull the hard camp at :53 using a quelling blade up and to the left. If done right this will intercept your creep wave as well as stack the camp, letting you tank the incoming radiant creep wave, then move back to the hard camp to reap the farm of your delicious 2 stack. This also denies farm to any radiant offlaners, who would have already been pushed back to tower while your creep wave was being killed. This technique is useful on most melee carries such as Jugg and Sven,

  • TREAD SWITCH. EVERY BLINK. Sorry for the caps but this is a really easy habit to get into, and people who don't do it usually underestimate how useful it is. Remember when it comes to playing carry, efficiency is one of the most important factors.

  • Do you have a build you go every game? STOP. Yes I know you feel really strong when you have BF, Manta, Heart and Butterfly, however when you're playing carry you should be looking for the best way to translate gold into game impact. Getting hexed and killed by Lion at the start of every fight? Heart probably won't help you as much as a BKB. Enigma solo black hole-ing you every fight? He knows you can easily cancel his black hole if he uses it on other heroes. Maybe you should consider getting an abyssal blade and take him out of the fight first.

I'll try and edit this if I think of anything else but atm I'm pretty fried.

Does anyone know how to come back from a bad landing stage?

I have seen people go maelstrom into vlads as an alternative to the early battlefury if you have a bad laning stage.

I believe you sac the idea of getting an early battlefury, go for a vlads, and then hit the jungle up as aggressively as possible, picking the battlefury up later.

Once you have the treads (and maybe bfury) you have to aggressively but safely split push lanes out, and always keep a tp on you. Basically clear 1-2 waves, then blink somewhere dark or tp back to your safelane if you were in their safelane. Be very careful past the river if you don't have good ward coverage. If your team really needs you, try to join but always come very late and drop an ult on the biggest mana pool enemy, then disengage and go back to farming (unless you can clean up kills without putting yourself at risk).

I think that's how to do it, and obviously isn't guaranteed to work.

I know a while back when pressured Kuroky went vlads -> maelstrom -> some other stuff on AM. So that's an option if battlefury just seems too impossible to pick up as well.
