        i wouldn't pay too much attention to advice on dotabuff mate, just try and learn the real basics first, watch some of purges videos for starters and just learn about the game. Try and find a role you like (support, roamer, carry) and stick to it mostly, then experiment with different heroes and try to find a small pool of 4-6 heroes you like and stick to them.

          I've played 700+ hours of Dota 2 i know the basics. I've played a wide variation of heroes but just cant seem to get further.

              I mostly played unranked single draft which isnt a good way of progressing skill in dota 2 but I understand how important roles are and how they are played but havent stuck to a specific role.

                To be honest strategy doesn't really matter that much there. Focus on mechanics?

                  this is bad advice

                  if he deserved higher mmr, he would receive it quickly.

                  the best option is to just try to learn, which is pretty clearly what hes doing

                      I noticed most heroes you play with don't farm that fast.
                      play with flash farming heroes more often. in that bracket all you should do is farm fast and push/ccounterpush . learn farming patterns and get better at laning. Heroes I'd suggest for you are Jugg, void, Ember, Lycan who are good at both laning and jungling.
                      Also map awareness is key to not dying.

                        Pick 2-3 carries and focus on farming and pushing, when I was in 1k I gained most of my mmr from playing invoker, lone Druid, clockwerk. They didn't know how to counter/play against Druid and clock so I'd suggest one way is to learn heroes which are not played that much in that bracket And go for it

                          i agree with liquidium. i only played lich as i started playing at 700mmr. i kind of got the gist of playing its role that i started to notice other heroes's skills and counters during teamfights. there was even one time where i literally carried my team as full slotted lich. if you have time, try to watch your replays and find out what mistakes you made ie. itemization, proper positioning, map awareness. that is if you're eager to learn

                            at 1k u just have to farm until you get your items, even though your enemies have 10 or 20k lead it doesnt matter, those idiots wont push, just pick sven or am and get 6 slotted and fck them(1k-2.4k)

                              Well,like it or not, its really your fault for being there, MMR doesnt lie, recently i thought too that my teammates hold me back and its impossible to get out from your bracket, because i was playing with friends who are much higher than me and i found those matches easier than in my bracket, even tho they were on much higher mmr than mine, but only because they were helping me on my lane a lot!

                              So there you go 1 stuff you dont have in your bracket, coordinated teamwork!

                              Then my little cousin gave me his guardian 2 account to play a bit on it and tell me what do i think, i found very easy to play snowball heroes there because nobody knows how to stop them. I couldnt do that in my bracket, then it dawned upon me that i couldnt do that in my bracket just because their skill is equal to mine so i can hardly outplay them! I could outplayed them only if my individual skill was much higher than theirs, wich in my case wasnt and thats it! Thats why im here in this bracket!

                              so to sum it up.
                              1)Find 1 snowball hero to spam and make sure you have last pick to avoid counters (lets be honest 90% of the people got out from low brackets just by using this tactics)
                              2)Never pick team-dependent heroes that relly on your teammate reaction and positioning because you not gonna get it and it will not be utilized
                              3) Learn how to farm effectively, if you outfarm your lane you can outfight it too! Also split push (enemies tping on toplane to stop you, you tp on bot lane etc)

                                If u want to improve really fast getting some1 to coach u and play with u will give u the best result. It can ur frnd(4k +) or any other coach from the net.

                                    This can only work if he has mapawareness so he doesnt get ganked a lot and feed them gold and exp with necros, i doubt they will support him with enough wards so he can see incoming ganks and create him enough space to push lanes. I have seen so many times this approach falls on its face.

                                      stop thinking that way and maybe you'll improve

                                            also a bad habit im currently in is not choosing the right items according to the enemy heroes. i know that has a huge part in why im in this low of a rank.

                                              in your opinion what should I try to improve?

                                              This is impossible to answer because dota is so complicated and has so much aspects in wich you can be terible at without even realizing, when my 5k mmr friend watches my replays he counts so much misplays i made that i wasnt even aware of. So this is a good start, either you or find someone skilled than you to watch your replays and just watch what are you doing from another perspective, you will see your mistakes and just try not to make them.

                                              Also even if someone here has so much time at disposal and writes you a 50 pages long essay on how to play dota, reading then will not make you a pr0 you need fuckton of experience and thousands of games to even call yourself an average player. Why the hell do you think newcomers run away from Dota 2 like its a plague? Its very complicated to learn almoast impossible to master, its fucking hard game that requires massive amount of time and effort!

                                              If dota was easy it would be called league of legends.

                                                lol do you know why you have such a high winrate on heroes lke bloodseeker and pa? because those heroes are broken in 1k. and they are your way out if you spam them. if you play shit like invoker youll never improve

                                                  im very thankfull for all of your feedback. if you could recomend a hero to play it would be great

                                                      Dont pick first, see their lineup and pick rightful response, if you dont have answer for their lineup you will get stomped and vice versa, for example you like playing PL, they have no Axe, Timber, LC, SK or shaker, they cant stop you so you fuck them up!

                                                      Trust no one

                                                        My friend. Try to learn and get good at the game mechanics. When you're atleast decent at them. You'll find yourself out of the trench

                                                                  Sn3akyDex

                                                                      Drazz

                                                                        Drazz

                                                                          Chin

                                                                            I believe in gaben

                                                                              Supp- Secure safe lane by harassing the offlaner and once you do that, try and roam mid or offlane depending on the situation. Smoke and gank if you have heroes like legion or slardar. Always carry a dust and sentry if enemy has invis or sb!
                                                                              Offlaner- Focus on getting exp instead of LH, since your hero e.g will be slardar,centaur,tide. They all are quite tanky and once reach lvl 6 become a huge game changer. So you outlving the enemy carry is great. Of course if you also are able to get LH and prevent their carry from getting any..that is even better.
