Dear LOKI007,

Dota learning process is not a continuous upward line, sometimes you get behind again, happens to us all - don't despair.

However, if you want to get better steadily and start to win more games, I suggest you stop swithing heroes so much and concentrate on doing some games with one at a time. Let's take CM for instance, with which I have some experience. Why don't you do like ten games in a row with her, trying to learn with your own mistakes each game, and even watching your own replays? I say this since you tell me you already watch purge's videos and read guides (both a lot, continue doing so!).

Do you have a dotabuff account? It also helps to make you look more objectively to what's happening in your games. Here's mine: http://www.dotabuff.com/players/175327573

Btw, if you want add me on Steam (same name as the dotabuff account), at any moment I have time I can answer your questions about specific builds and such.

Don't hesitate to PM me any other specific questions you might have!

Welcome to Dota Fire, and good luck.

90 on 160 is good, don't let anybody else tell you otherwise.

Regarding the losing streak, just forget it or blame it on volvo.

Focus on building skill with a chosen "hero pool", in other words about 5-10 heroes you feel like you can be good with but at the same time improve with.

Maybe the heroes you listeed would make a good hero pool. Choose fromt he pool based on what your team needs. Like if theres an Ursa on your team, you could pick CM since they combo well together.

ChiChi is not a guy though, trust me i know. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)


Also where are you from? It helps if you want to play with other people from here or if someone wants to analyse a replay of a game of you or something like that.

It would perhaps help if we checked your replays, we could all offer suggestions to help you improve. My brother, bunkan, and chichi are all good cm players, they could probably give you better advice than I could. I would be better at helping with Phoenix myself

Sometimes it might actually be just good to stop playing for a day or two.
Because otherwise you might just end up tilting.
You could also ask someone in the mentoring section to help you. I did that when I was falling down from 2.5 k with the speed of light.

I've stopped playing for the past 3 weeks. I hope I wouldn't tilt much when I play next.
