But none the less i will try to poke my nose in now and then and im always here to help new players and or give advice if needed. never be afraid to ask :D

ill also try to keep up the blog series but they might be more spaced out than before due to work and commitments.

THUS i bring you the latest blog....

HOW TO: POWER DOWN AUTO PILOT.

Auto pilot i hear you ask? well yes, auto pilot is what 99% of us who play dota do for 99% of the games we play and 99% of the duration of those games this is what mode we are in.

SOooooooooo

this will be a quick blog post just more so to get them feels of the chest ya feel homies?

AHEM ANYWAY

lately ive been smashing the games out in my second account. being playing exclusively solo ranked games and it was around 4.4-5 k that i started to support a lot more.... like ... a lot.

i now have a 0.98 on my reborn graph for supporting. :p

its my role now in my team as a pos 5 i can focus more on controlling the flow of the game and executing the movement that i want in game. i am allowed to put more time into TEAM things rather then LANE things. i can talk and communicate more about what needs to be done and do it.

this also come into my ranked games. hence the high amount of supporting. ive also come to the realization.

im getting carried.

as of last night my solo mmr is 4675 nearly 4.7k boiz! but i noticed a trend. i lose when i go core. i really do since i hit 4.5k i have not won ONE game where i went core. literally not one game. dem feels elejiggle.

im going to basically place down a video here and explain what im doing and some explanations about MMR and the like also so personal observations and some photos and run you guys through the eventual climb.


its a bit long but it hopefully clears up some MMR confusion and includes some of my backstory in MMR hell

Now before we begin i still haven't finished my first ten 10 games yet so this one is on the VERY first game played on the new account.

Reason?

That only 3k and above is any good. im bring you all with me as i journey through the trench and climb the steep slope of newbie dota.

along the way ill explain how matchmaking works and how many smurfs i encounter. ill talk about things that newbies do that is very detrimental to their development and their chances of winning. ill try and help out those i encounter and showcase the wide range of different personalities th…
