    one very important thing if you play solo Q is to play your best heroes to get as far away as possible from that 3k RMM. Like play 2-3 heroes with carry potential for like 30-40 games or as long as it takes to get far away from the 3k mark.

    The 3k mark is where noone wants to be. Since every players starts at around 3k mark in their calibration games and most bad players stay at around 2.6k-3k you want to be as far away from it as possible.

    Dont pick support heroes in solo Q until you are above 4k or something. Pick your very best 2-3 heroes that can farm outstandingly well and can carry late game or get kills midgame. The optimal formula for pubs is to have 3 heroes with fight potential who can dominate. Preferably good offlaner who can kill ppl, good safelane carry and eventually a good jungler or midgame hero that can decimate ppl.

      No, the game is way worse than it was when I started playing DotA. Matchmaking system matches you with retards (expect if you're a retard yourself, if so you just get matched with your gang) who cannot play or know basics of dota.

          Lazyness. Not to mention the lack of bugfixes, and the amount of new ones with each new content added

            It looks like if the search range goes longer than 3-3.5 minutes the game will suck. I highly suggest you dont play at any time in your region that is not the prime time, any time outside of like 15-23:00 of your region. When the search takes longer than 3 minutes it looks like its safe to stop the search and start over again. Otherwise you will have a frustrating experience. Except u play with a stack.

              The community is not getting any better. And as long as that doesn't change, all other changes are useless.

                Game really took a nosedive with the removal of solo queue.
