    Thanks for the play your 5 best heroes advice, that is really good and I think I might do that myself (or improve the wr 40% winrate which is one of my most played for instance).

    Anyway on to the topic of solo queue - I have found it easier to play either mid (if you random it you can buy your own wards because I am assuming your team will not do it), offlane if you can lane alone or a jungle hero so there is noone to mess up your lane - however in all those roles you probably have to buy wards and also upgrade the courier, as sad as it is but it will make the game easier for you. The only problem with playing a jungle hero is that your other lanes have to do reasonably well for it to work so it doesn't always work. PLaying a carry in low/medium level pubs is hard work since it's really difficult to farm when your "support" is doing his/her best to outcs you
    I would suggest playing support if you feel most confortable with it - as you said you always do your job - but sadly sometimes it just isn't enough if your team mates are awful and you haven't got much due to spending all your money on warding/dewarding etc. It also seems to me that climbing into higher brackets is much harder as support since if you play number 5 then you will probably not have an amazing KDA and all the rest.

      Just accept that your not good and that you need to start improving yourself and your communicative skills.
      are you even reading my posts? i am improving myself, and i am always communicating with my team. ask any SEA player if anyone actually speaks English on that server ( i have English selected as the language in MM, but almost no one speaks English, or if they do, they cant speak proper English)

      Its just sad that you arrive to the conclusion that I'm bad without even seeing my replays, im more than happy if someone actually points out what i did wrong in any of my games

          I play in SEA and I get English speaking users.

          It also helps that I understand Chinese speaking users too.
          He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.

            well, i just dont know what to say to that, i have gone from 54% winrate to as low as 48, as i lost a shitload of games. i'd like to think of myself as an improving player, not the other way around. i watch a ton of vods, tutorials, and try to play better and i do, you can see some replays of me in games where i outplayed the enemy team while i had some decent farm, but how can i do anything when we lose the game in the first 10 minutes. how is that even fair ?

            once again, im not even playing against "noobs", after around 100 games i moved to the high bracket, where i was winning games there too, its just in the past 2 weeks i am having horribly, shitty team mates. if there is a pudge on my team, he misses every hook, while next game we face off against a pudge, he never misses one. just an example
            Yeah I know that feeling, there's two things is could be. You're either in a comfort zone where you're not improving or taking risks and you sit in limbo where you feel you're improving maybe due to lucky breaks that feel good to pull off or get the rare bad enemy team. That or you expect too much of your team, do you suggest that they do things they clearly aren't? Maybe you've dipped down into that pool and you still expect a higher standard of play that just doesn't exist yet for them?

            Try getting a microphone and ordering people around, but be super polite because nobody listens to a douchebag even if they're correct.

              Alright, since you dont begin to flame like varun did, ill not threat you like him, instead ill take some time and write some analysis for some of the matches you played and tell you what what you did wrong. Also i can communicate with people who cant speak proper english. They understand when im writing or speaking (kinda), they understand pinging, they understand the chatwheel and even drawings. So theres more ways to communicate than only write/speak.

              btw: this is a varun response.

                There's a very easy way to tell if you suck at last-hitting or if it's the fault of your allies: Start a private game with no bots, pick SF, don't learn and skills or buy any items. Get as many last hits/denies in mid within 10 seconds. Post the result in this thread.

                If the total number of last hits/denies is bad, then prepare to be crucified....

                  I genuinely think he does not really care. He didnt even answer to any of my help posts, so think twice if you want to spend that time.
