Even though it's incredibly fun, most Dota 2 players don't prefer or just don't like to take the support role. They believe that the game can only be won if they play a carry. However, this can't be further from the truth, especially in the last couple of years. The meta now is more engaging than ever before, which is why support heroes have a very important role in the game.
One of the main things that you need to learn first is how to place Observer Wards. This might seem very straightforward at first but there are a couple of things that you might want to keep in mind.
Place the wards wherever you need them
The first point might be pretty self-explaining but there are still many people out there that have no idea where to place the wards. The answer to this question depends entirely on how is the game going for your team. If things are good, you have to try and put as much offensive vision as possible in order to be effective. However, if you're under a heavy siege, that observer ward in the enemy jungle is probably not a good idea.
Use a Smoke of Deceit so you can place the wards
This is something that many pro players tend to do and you should start doing it as well. The idea behind using a Smoke to ward is to prevent the enemy from seeing you if they already have a ward there. Unfortunately, there are many people who just don't bother doing this at all, which is why it's you often just waste the ward for no reason.
Try to take advantage of every situation
The last thing that you should try to do is make the most out of any situation. This means that whenever you see an opportunity to do something, you should reach and grab it. So, for example, if you're team just wiped everyone, you have to use this time to ward and then deward the enemy wards.
