Heya! Welcome to Dota. We all suck here, even the professionals, so don't worry about it too much. There are a few general things you can do to improve your game without getting into specifics, so I'll go through those now.

- Read Purge's excellent new players' guide, "Welcome to Dota, you suck." You can find that here: https://purgegamers.true.io/g/dota-2-guide/

- Find two or three heroes you enjoy the playstyle of and play games against bots with them. Get a good feel for what their skills do and what their strength and weaknesses are so you have a set of comfort heroes to fall back on.

- Play every hero at least once, even if it's just against bots. Being generally familiar with every hero in the game will stop you from being surprised by what a certain hero can do.

- The two mechanical skills you can probably work on to maximize your returns right now are last hitting and map awareness. Get into the habit of checking the mini-map two or three times a minute and get an understanding of where all the heroes are on the map. That way you won't be surprised by ganks, you'll die less, and those improved last hitting skills from all the practice will get you lots of farm!
