    I believe you were four sheets to the wind when we played last week. Could be a factor.

    I have been stuck in upper Archon/low Legend for about 1-2 years. Yet, the quality of games is better than ever. Community skill increase is real.

    My queue times for anything other than support are astronomical but the carry play is as bad as ever

    played in the wildest dota match i've maybe ever experienced tonight

    we lost but it was still super fun and would've won easily if we had a single building hitter on the team.

    slark, pudge, and silencer (all three scaling) + hoodwink and willow vs zeus, phoenix (best phoenix i've ever seen), sk, me on snapfire mid, and techies

    techies helped extend game but they pushed. so they'd kill 3-4 of us and then we'd wipe them, etc. with these chaotic fights vs slark and pudge that went forever

    it was dope until the rapiers game out around min 35-40

    Spoiler for size, but holy shit at this chart. DPC leagues for t1/t2 teams starts in like 1-2 weeks and there's no fucking teams in NA. Shit is gonna be the wild west.

    At my awful terrible shitty play level, you cannot leave your core in lane solo.

    Ever.

    Ever.

    It's instadeath. Doesn't even matter if you announce that you're going to base or getting runes. It's death.

    And it's your fault.

    Never forget that.

    i've lost 9 of my last 10 games despite consistently topping the charts for GPM and hero damage as a safelane carry.

    Playing anything other than mid is a huge mistake if you want to raise mmr.

    my last 5 games have featured my "supports" feeding double digit kills in < 30 minutes, a "support sniper" with a dusa mid, a juggernaut mid and 2 intentional feeders.

    My last win there on Warlock featured a hard support who put his hero in the jungle on pick screen and said "no se jugar suport" and insta picked pudge.

    didn't matter, still won.


    Also, I always queue all 5 roles, haven't played mid or carry in ranked in months

    Agree Purge. Agreed Peter.

    That’s literally not news to me. I literally know I’m not a good player. My experience would be immeasurably better though if everyone else I played with had that same epiphany.

    he's right, but there's a reason every paid MMR booster/smurf plays mid exclusively.

    The very fundamental shape of the game means mid will always be the most important role.

    mid is the only position in dotes where you can single handedly just take over a game and dumpster everyone

    it's the easiest position to have early snowballs

    That awful feeling as a po5 when the enemy storm, QOP or morph is 3 levels above your mid and you just die instantly

    Remember: that’s completely your fault.

    Everything that went wrong in the match is your fault.

    why did you allow your team an all melee lineup into viper, silencer, and necrophos?

    Also, never forget: if you die, link a team members items and spells. It’s key.
