    is 3500 MAX CALIBRATION cap?

    YES,except if you use dotaplus(ranked roles) which is probably 0k-5k or 0k-4k,my 5,5 friend got 3999 so it might be 0k-4k
    update: dotaplus doesnt work anymore and it'll give u 3500 mmr
    how to get VHS?

    just get 3800 mmr level srsly vhs is trash it doesnt really matter
    if you cant get 3800 mmr it means you just arent skillful enough,go practice more
    for reference
    below 3k=normal skill
    3k-3,8=high skill
    does BOT COOP counts on your matches?

    YES,do with 5 man and discconect(dont abandon) after picking a hero for faster efficiency
    you can use this for getting 100 matches fast for new id(took 3-5 hours) or getting your behavior score from F to NORMAL again
    you need like 30~ matches of normal/turbo to calibrate your skill level before can play ranked,and rest bots
    how to do : get 5 man party,queue bot match unfair-everybody disconnects after picking a hero/random(dont abandon)-wait 2-3mins-done
    is spamming a hero with below 60% WINRATE good? (its okay to use questions like this and below for making new threads though)

    NO,you need to get 60%+ winrate if you want to get those juicy mmrs FAST,70-80% winrate preffered

      how to GITGUD? how to watch replays?

      here's some basic guide

      wat are you struggling at?

      do you know how to use creep aggro? (section 4)


      farming?(do 1vs0 hit creeps lobby)

      doing smokeganks?
      push lane,put a smoke on your inventory always,after your core gets a strong item smoke together aftre you saw someone,put ward while you do smoke at enemy jungle and let the one who has a stun goes 1st

      watch high people replays,youtube,see wat they do
      at early fights,hitting people with rightclick after your stun spell is really good

      at lanes,play with the jungle and try to hit people from trees if you support range. if melee try to learn to lasthit by not standing close to a creep,but far away and then move and then hit and go away again(so not get harrased)
      at fights,if you support just cast a spell and run away( go back) immediately
      if you stuff that has dagger like enigma/axe you wait enemy for clump up,stay very very far away from the fight(dont get hit)
      if you initiating a gank,and enemy is gonna die anyway after you blink+stun get away from that place immediately
      if you carry/mid,wait enemy casts their stuns on your friends unless you have bkb and you can rambo
      after bkb duration almost out,go run away and wait your friends get stunned then u go
      if you pushing,if carry hit tower
      support no need hit tower,you can either be in front of the tower and try zone enemy or usually the better one,be in really behind of your carry and cover with stuns
      if you offlane like tide u go front of barracks or at barracks,no need hit tower so your carry is safe

      itembuilds? hero mastery? specific role/laning skill?
      watch replays (example link if you want to learn wk)
      (or, watch replay of high mmr player playing the hero you want to learn,play the hero alot)
      don't get hit by a creep,buy alot of consumables like salve/clarity/mango

      raising mmr?
      check the meta,learn op heroes,watch the replays of those op heroes,spam a hero
      check behavior score,if not normal raise it to normal
      developer 1
      dota_game_account_cilent debug
      type that on console dota2

      so,er for watching replays
      for example your last game is wk
      and you want to know wat the hell you do wrong
      check the one where it goes the same lane as you

      go to view match-copy match id-watch-replays-search match id-download

      if download isnt working,library steam-dota2-properties-check integrity game cache to fix it

      or go

      those all references for self practice i guess,practice wat you love/feel bad at first so you have more fun

                                                you can easily identify if a dota player is a girl or a guy from hero pool

                                                  ^^ i wonder how you ended up with f behaviour score :thinking:


                                                    how u indentify someone from hero pool

                                                    i cant accept your freq for some reason

                                                    if your behavior score is low,you will get matched with same people with high chances i think,since people on F behavior score is just small population
                                                    can't help you much on that,either you try to stop trashtalking everyone when they feeding(and be nice) or just up your bh score again
                                                    not a support player btw,cant give u tips on sp ing

                                                    also,this probably is irrelevant but maybe change ur name and picture to a nicer one,maybe it made someone triggered and they report u or something lol

                                                      3 or 4 female carry heroes in hero pool + archon 2 = wemen 100% of the time
                                                      100 games of supporting with cm and dazzle with someone playing jugger in party = wemen

                                                            I feel the incel vibe. Go watch some anime.


                                                              Feach what's this "disconnect but don't abandon" thing for bot games? You disconnect but you can't rejoin another game directly so what's the point -- or am I totally missing this?


                                                                wat is incel

                                                                just dont abandon
