In general I'm not, but the salt is getting real. Used to be able to enjoy games even if I lost, but with those losses lately I just feel outclassed by the enemy so hard that it's basically a curbstomp. It's not like I queue solo, got a couple of friends that I play with so I know it's not due to random Russians fucking it up.

3057 solo MMR and 3606 party MMR, but haven't played ranked in 9 months so it should be slightly higher now, I guess.

I was perusing muh dotabuff and realized I have at least a 10% higher winrate on radiant. My first instinct was to start dodging dire games as much as possible but that's the kind of animal thinking that's the reason I'm not good at Dota in the first place. So instead I'm trying to think of the reasons why exactly I win so much more on radiant. Only thing I came up with so far is the fact that I get the bounty rune at level 1 a lot more on radiant since I mostly play a safe lane farmer but that's gotta be pretty fucking minor. Probably something to do with the jungle and how people ward in my bracket.

Matchmaking truly is a piece of shit, had my first game in 3 months, it's even worse than it was before. Besides reborn sucking incredible amounts of dick (bugs, shitty UI, even loading feels slower somehow), I still don't get it how so many egocentric people force themselves into a team game. I mean what's the point?

Best way to play this game solo is to instantly mute all teammates and opponents at the start of the match, pretend they're bots and never expect anything. Communication is overrated and all you need is the occasional ping and the chat wheel.

Instantly improved experience.

But playing solo sucks shit anyway, find some friends or find some other game. This is after 6k hours of playing solo.

Same experience here. Muting all makes solo much better. Talk is cheap. And most talk in Dota is even cheaper. The best fun is found in teaming up with a friend who is both a decent a player and not a complete psycho. Then you can actually win consistently.

God I love watching Dota 2 way too much.

Haters gonna hate, but watching this is so much more interesting than sports.

Shit draft by EG - Lich Undying vs Black Antimage? Feels like they don't give the enemy any credit. One disable vs a 5v1 lategame hero...

Also bad itemization - no +armour to counter Amplify Damage, no Lotus Orb.

Frost armour is decent enough vs Slardar and WR went for an early MKB so a solar wouldn't even have been that good either. EG still got outdrafted hard or rather outdrafted themselves, in addition to making a couple of misplays in the lategame that gave Fnatic the openings they were looking for to claim the rax. Universe should've gone for an orchid instead of the aghs or sumail hex instead of shivas so they had some chance to catch out the AM once he finished his manta.

VG vs Unknown is gonna be fun, tiny mid and burning medusa, while Unknown pulls the veno/viper duallane.

Vici vs Vega games 2 & 3 were the most entertaining games so far. Crazy comebacks both games. Vici's early game appears very vulnerable.
