So you want to increase your Solo MMR eh? Well, good luck, I’ll see you on the other side—just kidding.

Increasing your MMR in Dota 2 is a daunting task that will undoubtedly leave you frustrated and in need of excessive amounts of alcohol, or maybe that’s just me. Here to mitigate some of the troubles you might face on your journey are 10 Secrets to Quickly Increase Your Dota 2 Solo MMR.


1. Pick what the team needs

Pick smart

I know, everyone wants to be the carry because let's face it, carries are cool. Everyone wants to be that six slotted whatever that can one shot enemy heroes and have over 1000 last hits, but sometimes, you just can’t.

Sometimes, instead of being the badass everyone fears, you have to be the Crystal Maiden who only has three bracers for 40 minutes and does nothing more than tend to the wards and help with team fights.  

Other times, you'll have to be that tank who must throw themselves on the grenade, just to get that perfect initiation so the rest of your team can clean up. It's a hard life, but somebody's got to do it.  

So if you want to improve your MMR, be patient when picking your character, see what the team needs. Don't assume your teammates know what they're doing, because they probably don't.
