    Fun to watch and instructional in the ways of HoN. So many people could step up their game if they watched this and learned.
    Dunning–Kruger effect: a cognitive bias that causes unskilled people to make poor decisions and reach false conclusions, but their incompetence denies them the ability to realize their mistakes. The unskilled therefore suffer from illusory superiority, rating their own ability much higher than it actually is. This leads less competent people to rate their own ability higher than more competent people.

    The hard thing about getting better in a game like this compared to something like starcraft, is in starcraft you can just focus on honing one skill at a time and it's fine if you lose a ton of games due to neglecting everything else. In this game you have to try to juggle everything from the very beginning if you don't want to troll your own team.

    One good tip is to listen to your allies that are BETTER than you (Although some of them say ridiculous things). I tell less skilled players to quit going off alone and farming the lane alone but then they still do it.. then they get ganked.

    This is the best advice ever. Once you realize this, you've already improved.

    I've been in the scene some time now, and I'm improving daily. What you can consider while playing:

    1. When you play mid, when to gank, when to farm, when to TP for ganks etc.

    2. When you're playing a carry, when to initiate, when to farm, when to support your team even though you are freefarming.

    3. When you're playing support, litteraly give you're life for your carry, and support them like hell. Ward for them, protect them. Your death means nothing compared to his.

    Always watch the minimap, always. have a great presence of mind, and understanding of the game. This will help you, as it has helped me.

    And to you who thinks play support is boring. I believe if you play your support role 100 %, it is actually very fun to play. Beeing the ward baitch is actually more rewarding when you win, than beeing the carry and getting the kills. Because you're job is more difficult then the carries, believe it or not.

    Remember that it is more difficult to play a good support then to play a good carry, it requires more skill, more anticipation, more calculation and more balls! Remember this!

    I am not a good player by all means, but i still manage to get 17 - 0 soulstealer, or empath with 5 - 3 - 26 (out of 35 kills total), having these thoughts in my mind.

    Practise makes perfect sometimes
