Smurfer here.
I get players that are in my VHS skill and after checking their account on dotabuff I can see that they are 2-3k mmr actually since they get sent to high skill and unmarked games.

These players are in VHS since they have to fill the MMR disparity gap. Especially when you play in mm and there are stacks.

No shadow pool for you, you just actually got sent to a game with people having the same mmr as you.

Pretty much, in steam dev days some developer commented on this.
As the player plays more games, their skill generally plateus and doesn't improve. So they get stuck at 50% and a rating corresponding to their skill.

I know one guy at 4.7 that blogposts on dotabuff forums about bad teammates and gives people "advice" by analyzing replays etc. But this fucking guy is ruining peoples ranked games nonstop due to him being actually shit and his skill has actually dropped but he can't realize this so he will just hang onto his MMR he doesn't want to ruin.
(He plays party mmr to not change his solo, and it is at 4.2)

>>92010645
your skill plateuing is a self regulating thing tho. like in any skill based activity it needs people who are better than you to learn more stuff. if you keep being on your level you wont improve because there is not much space for improvement besides what you can do with your own spectrum.
if youre new to dota you dont get good just from playing but also from seeing and experience stuff you dont understand yet or arent able to do automaticly providing space to your skill pool.
thats not ment as an excuse for being stucked at some skill level but its a part why getting gud can feel like quicksand sometimes.
your natural skill ceiling usually is related to stuff you just arent able to improve at some point because your genes suck or you are too old or whatever ... like apm, reaction time etc
as an example, part of why every smurf PSG creates is always stuck in normal right away is also even though he should know enough about the game by now he probably does 3 mouseclicks per minute and is too old and shitty to improve on that by nature
>>
>>92011134
Well there is your answer. Of course he wasn't going to admit he was playing seriously because it probably hurt his pride that he tried to win and ended up playing like shit. This happens all the time in team games and not just Dota2.

The theory behind perfect matchmaking is that if you face someone of equal skill, it's a 50-50 chance that you win or lose. So when you reach your true MMR, you basically stay stuck at 50% winrate until you improve.

But shitters just blatantly misinterpret this explanation as ZOMG FORCED 50 ELO HELL SHADOW POOL THANKS VOLVO.

Now of course, Valve does have its misgivings in matchmaking such as treating MMR as a linear indicator of skill when they themselves admit that they designed the system's populations to be more like a bell curve but that taking that into account complicates the matchmaking calculations so they don't give a shit / won't give a shit.

that's not the problem
the thing is everyone has their "trick" whenever its solo mid silencer or offlane qop or just TA mid they do it to rush the process.

for a player that wants to IMPROVE and play with more skilled players that's an issue because he does not understand the process going into a match where he have to make up for all the impact his teammates aren't providing

i miss playing fps games where i could just make my team win all the time.

i was lying in bed thinking, how do i get better at dota? the only way is to play against better people...but with the matchmaking system, i can't do that, i can only play against and with people that are (sort of) at my skill level

I-I want to get better...but how?...The training isn't having any effect...I must find a stronger opponent...

Nah. I say the difference from 4k to 5k and 6k is the experience you have playing games. The ability to make snap decisions differentiates the 4k from the 5k players because frankly a 4k player probably has all the knowledge the 5k player does. The 5k player has that extra 1-2 second ability to recognize a situation faster than the 4k.

Even in CSGO, you can't do that. Win one or two rounds? Yes. Carry the entire game? Unless you drastically outskill the enemy team. The key to getting better in Dota2 is experience and ability to make fast decisions. Of course mechanical skills play a minor part but even EE has mentioned that Loda/Akke didn't have good mechanics before they joined NTH and they were still good players. It is the ability to instantly know what to do in a given situation that separates the pack and that only comes from playing more games.

all the time. however, people at 3k don't have any knowledge of the changing meta for the most part, and continue to pick void expecting a free kill

they get shut down in lane or don't get enough cs to be playing the hero to start with, they build crit instead of maelstrom (except the first guy who was never involved in a fight during the game), they farm while you're pushing and teamfighting not realizing that their contribution is extremely important, etc.

in all 3 of those games the void was the lowest fight involvement and in all 3 of those games i outdamaged the void at least 2:1 with either a less hard carry or a support.

i might play again tonight and if i do i'm first picking void then repicking. he's a hero who's hard to play well, you have to get extremely good farm early, and these shit retards just constantly ruin my games any time they pick him.

at least one of the wins you see was gifted to me by a useless void on the other team. i can't remember the last time i saw a farmed one.

kind of, but it gets misinterpreted as a possible excuse for shitters. in theory matchmaking wants to put everyone into an even environment with every team being equally skilled for every game you play eventually providing you a 50% chance of winning for every game. of course thats kind of forced 50

I played CS from beta 3 in 1999. CS is so old to me I can't bear to play it and honestly, the dota-ization of it, with people thinking it's some srs ranked game, has ruined the fanbase. CS is a drop in drop out game. Playing every pub match like it's a serious scrim is sad.

CS was also ruined the moment they introduced preset spray patterns. Memorizing spray patterns does not make a good game.

This is PSG in case you were wondering if I was ever good at any video game. I was. I was really really good at FPS games. My brother was on the cK practice squad in quake1 and I played with the best who ever played the game, at the age of like 14-16.

It was bad. The game changed from being about movement, positioning, and fastest reaction times to being purely about positioning, memorizing map spots, and memorizing spray patterns.

BTW if you have ever cared about CS you owe something to PSG. I taught gooseman how to properly draw camouflage over IRC in 1998 when he made an action quake 2 skin with hilariously bad camo.

I'm old. I think that's part of why I'm bad at dota :(

I also tried to mid juggernaut against viper, wtf was I thinking? How come nobody has been mentioning how much viper destroys jugg's ass through all this OP jugg talk? Viper destroys juggernaut's asshole. Just wrecks it.

I think new PL pretty much proves monkey king isn't happening. It's too generic of a concept for the dota world, and the new illusion spawning escape mechanism is more or less exactly one of the skills monkey king was going to have.

We're getting a new hero in 32 days. It's safe to say the dota hero pool will be complete by july or august. I can't believe it, we're going to get an ALL NEW HERO this year!!

I dont know if you care
but most pros aren't even global elite in csgo MM due to streamsniping and cheaters.

Most pros and people getting recruited play in ESEA, ESL and FACEit.
It's like CSGOs NEL. Cheaters get booted and banned and you actually have players that care about the game.
There is obviously a ladder and you get rewards and recognition.

Otherwise reply to my post if you really want to get good at dota, send me your steam id.
You will be required to read and watch some shit. Nothing DotA 2 client related as watching replays didn't help me in the long end.

I already read it all bro. That's why I'm on here frustratedly attention whoring every day. There's no basic dota skill I don't have. I've even started smoking a lot, like last game I got an early kill by smoking into the safe lane and omnislashing them. I get better and better but win like 53% of my games at max due to the nature of matchmaking.

One of the things that made me a lot better was watching my booster hide behind trees and make a beeline for neutrals to deny himself. I added those things to my kit and it's a great feeling when people run up expecting to see you and you're standing there behind a single tree and they give up and walk back to the lane.

Because you're not autistic and know the difference between being bad and being clan_iraq, right?

Because you know how much better doing damage while magic immune is than doing very slightly higher damage while not immune early/midgame, right?

Because you know mael+aghs+deso is the better way to have an omnislash rampage and gives flash farm to get a quicker aghs + aoe armor reduction for your mid and offlane and is better than memeblade + meme of madness + memeta style, right?

MoM is the most cost effective way to get omnislash deeps, provides better manfighting than other items, and makes soloing rosh fast and easy.

8/10 the other person will give up if you just go to the lane and claim it like an autist

Hi.

I'm new to the whole "smurfing" thing.

I've been having some bad games recently. And I was wondering if you guys think I should start a new smurf, or just play it out on this one.

Ty. These are my latest matches.

Depends what MMR you want, your smurf seems to be at low 3k now.

We can't do anything about it cause our parents are real old fashioned types who think anything related to online money is a scam, no matter how much I tell them steam is a secure thing.


The cheapest game I saw on steam store is bad rat revenge right now, please, I just wanna play some dota with my little brothers. Gift me any game, the cheaper the better.

Party invites do not have have to be on friends. Friends just allows you to send invites wherever they happen to be (and be notified if they aren't in dota 2).

You can make your own channel, have everyone go there, then right click their names and be good to go.

Or you can create a custom lobby with your own password, then have them find it and do the same thing there.

Well, PSG
Your low mmr gets sent to High and Very High to help the long time searching high mmr players to find someone to fill in the MMR gap on the both teams.
Playing unranked doesn't change your MMR if your MMR has already been set in stone when you have finished your ranked mmr game.

90% winrate with my 4-5k friends games but unranked yet gives me normal skill as I am 3k mmr.

Hey Doom bro, looking good, dude.

I don't have a clue about names for the Slardar set or the PL, but I have a sweet choice for your Monkey King courier.

Name him "Houwang".

"Měi Hóuwáng"
Meaning "Handsome Monkey-King", or Houwang for short. The adjective Měi means "beautiful, handsome, pretty"; it also means "to be pleased with oneself", referring to his ego. Hóu ("monkey") also highlights his "naughty and impish" character.

So, Houwang = Handsome Monkey King.

It's legit too, dude. Look it up on the wiki.

does unranked not have a separate mmr? that increases with wins like ranked?

why the fuck would they change it from the years of unranked working like that?

Fuck if I know. He got a fb on TA with no rune and no gank. I also ganked at 6(or maybe 8) minutes with an invis rune.

>3 denies
>Dragonfist build

Dragonfist does his build because it is reliable on him as he has played TA too much and can rely on getting kills with the movespeed and cheap stats as he can make use for it.

This TA probably thought he could just get kills because IT WORKS ON DRAGONFIST HURR
IM PROB GOOD AS HIM AT USING THIS HERO TO THE FULLEST.

Most of Dragonfist skills comes from perfectly lining up psiblades, he fucking wrecks Venom, Viper and Pudge (obv) in lane when they try to counterpick even in 2v1 mid scenarios when they try to shut him down early on.

I'm glad SF won.

>>92018916
You keep posting your fucking overdesigned garbage here and you never actually change anything about them, just commercial spam basically.

Your Slardar like others said is a themeless overdesigned shit.
>>
>>92019897
Yeah I agree. The Slardar set looks overdesigned as FUCK. The PL and the monkey are okay though.
Fuck the Slardar set. The guy dropped the ball big time on that.

you guys have to take a look of what is an overdesigned set. Of all the spring event submissions mine are quite simple actually int erms of overdesigned ornaments.

>>92019932
You literally got scammed, since forever has it been like this.

Many 2.5k mmrs play in VH as they help high mmr players find matches faster. How new are you?

Their rating will ofcourse change if they win but not if they already have a rank from playing ranked.

If it is not overdesinged, then what the fuck is that weapon?
Why is his fins at his back extended like a dragon wing's size?
Why is he having extra-extended fins?
That set makes no sense.
Classic mark for overdesigned trash.
Your PL looks like something out of lycanthropes stash.

The courier is nice though.

I had an old deathadder too. My quake pro friend used the hell out of it then gave it to me when he got a new one. Shit still lasted me another 5 years. I was pretty sad when the right click finally died. Ended up just getting another deathadder, even if it is a sub-par model, I just like the feel of it.

He often gets mad as seen in the chatlog, blames his team and wont do anything.
Then proceeds to go by calling mason a virgin and just crying.
