I generally stop playing after 1 loss.

Yet again, I take a break after almost every match
deadbeat

After a longer break I started with Dota again.
I am still not high level, so pretty much in any game there's at least one leaver and a few flamer including no teamwork... Still I go through this in hope it might end when I get a higher level :(

i don't mean to disappoint you, but the teamwork generally doesn't get much better lol...

But well, in -cm mode I had to play with 4 people who were 1000 MMR lower than me and I guess it's kinda worse? But not by a big margin
The best method is still to get a high impact hero yourself if you want to reach a higher level/MMR. Those include Wraith King, DOOM, Zeus, Lich, Axe (if you can play him) or simply your favorite/best heroes (I should rephrase my sentece: The best method is to get a hero where you can easily make a high impact with, which are most probably your favorite heroes or really easy/simple strong heroes like Lich).
As a support, make sure to buy smoke. I'm pretty sure that 90% of the people don't have much map awareness in early game, so smoke gang (maybe with a tp top if you're bot lane and vice versa // or simply going mid) can make a big difference.

When picking a hero, do make sure that your hero isn't immediately countered by the opponents though. I usually wait 'til the last second to pick my hero (not on 0:00 mark or you'll get lags and lose 5-10 gold) to ensure that I don't get countered.
OR I counter them myself. Most often with DOTABUFF.com lol. Just look who the opponent's core hero is. Go on DOTABUFF and look that hero up and see where his highest disadvantage is against.

I once picked safelane-Ursa just to counter Invoker-Ember-Void because I rememberd the advantage-disadvantage-stats and it worked wonders

Thanks a lot for these advices, I already tried Zeus and had a lot of fun with him, especially his Ultimate ability :)
I will buy smoke in my next game to see if it helps me^^

teamplay is when there's that 1 annoying fucker who tells you what to do and the rest shuts up and does what he says.
It's the most you can get out of pub matches anyway

From 4850 to 4456 back to 4720. Nature's Prophet spam is the key.

Try heroes like Juggernaut, Lich, Vengeful Spirit, Dragon Knight or any heroes that have basic mechanics


Learn to properly last hit creeps since you' get a gold advantage
Denying creeps is a MUST since you need to deny the enemy with XP

As for builds, go at the suggested items and you're good to go


just dont play riki

just don't


pls

A higher chance of seeing wards, supports or TPs.

There is in-game skill and item build for every hero, so no worries about that.
Also, get ready to rage at those towers. They are ridiculous to every LoL player and you will see what I mean. The best way to get used to it is getting hit by that tower a lot so you can kinda have a feeling when and when he won't attack you :D

I started Dota without any guide and I maybe had 5-6 Bot games before I went over into public games *hides*

Yeah I played my very first DotA game at a LAN party. I chose Crystal Maiden because I knew her from the campaign (Jaina Proudmoore) and started feeding endlessly. My friends had no mercy.

Second game was with Techies and my words afterwards were "this hero is stupid, all he can do is suicide".
