10 Secrets To Quickly Increasing Your DotA 2 Solo MMR
There are no shortcuts.

10. Communicate

They say the key to any good relationship is communication. Well, if you plan on increasing your Dota 2 MMR, you’re going to have to work on your communication skills. Being friendly to your teammates isn’t enough—although it is important.  

First, you must be able to effectively communicate with your teammates during the hero pick stage. Introduce yourself, then quickly find out who can play what. Try your best to delay your teammates from impulse picking. Clearly identify who is going where by placing your character’s avatar on the minimap. And when the round starts, stick to the plan, try not to make any last minute changes as things can get real confusing, real quick.  

Communicate with your teammates while you are in lane. Are you playing carry and your support is competing with you for last hits? Ask him nicely to chill. Are you playing with a carry who is a little squeamish? Comfort him by telling him how you are going to set up a gank.  

And most importantly, you must always be thinking of the big picture. If you see something isn’t right, fix it. Everyone has experienced this at one point or another, a sinking feeling that things are just not working out. For example: The laning stage of the game is just going horribly for you, and you happen to notice that another one of your teammates is playing a hero better suited for your lane, so, ask him to switch. Whether or not he listens to you or not is another matter, but it doesn’t hurt to try.   

The point is, no one is going to do anything unless someone says something, and sometimes that person who is going to have to break the silence, is going to be you.  

So there you have it, 10 Secrets to Quickly Increase your Dota 2 Solo MMR. What do you guys think? Agree? Disagree? Think I’m full of it? Let me know down below in the comments, jerks.
