pubs are terrible. simply terrible. and it's a pretty bad downward spiral. once you are below 1700 **** starts to get weird, once you are below 1650 75% of games will ****ing upset you, but once you drop below 1600...
all hope is lost.
im so sick of 5 carry lineups, feeders telling me i failed mid when i started as SS and had to buy courier and wards, pebbles swiftblade lanes, losing a game despite having 350 gpm consistently and a 25-5-15 score ...
initiating and everyone saving their nukes for the kill resulting in the initiator getting knocked the living **** out (and my team soon after) by the enemy team.
people not understanding the role of their hero...
how to get back to where one belongs ?
No stats when you play alone. Play stats with a few friends.
Every game i play in this shitbracket i have to banlist 1-2 people, and very rarely i meet people i would want to play with again.
You can't rely on your team to do ANYTHING.
No matter how much you dominate your lane and gank, you can't play the game for your team.
you need to get a semi-carry/initiator/support lol
dont get wards from the beggining, since you can make it without them, and get a more tanky carry maybe, cause with a SS you can just get chained CC and die faster, ive seen skilled players going mid with mali for example and later they are unkillable, so if you really are a 1700+ player you could do that easy right?
350 GPM is terrible on SS, Wards arent needed in 1550+
Courier + 4 Totems -> Bottlerush wins easily.
Checking your last 3 Replays:
1) Match 19432642
Looks like you farmed the entire Game. Ended with <330 GPM, which is atrocious.
Took part in 15 kills (WILDSOUL took part in 20), let game go for 60 Minutes when you were SS.
Bought Crap Items, dealt no damage. Oh, and shroud is complete bullcrap. Rather get no intiation tool at all.
2) Match 19382307
Running a Carryreaper with 230 GPM. 4 Denies, that looks crap even if the Game went for only 10 Minutes.
Took part in 19 Kills, which is the 2nd lowest. Game Mode: AR.
Given the Opponents lineup, a Kuldra would've been about twice as good as that Heart.
3) Match 19378646
Hardcarry, 350 GPM, suboptimal Item Choices.. it's getting boring.
You are incapable of farming, don't take part in teamfight either (what the hell are you doing?),
buy crappy Items, blame your team and are "sick of 5carry lineups" but pick a carry every game.
You are where you belong to be.

play -> banlist -> play
seriously though. in these situations. its usually the person complaining that is at fault.
the most ive dropped in a row is maybe 50 psr. and that has been in the 1830 range where games usually are "may the better team win"
but you will always climb back up where you belong or stay where you belong
considering that 1700 is the new 1500 you actually dropped from 1500 to 1300 -.-
Winning is about doing what's necessary to achieve victory, not whining about teammates or stats.

LOL @ being tired of 5 carry lineup and always playing carry yourself. You got bashed and deserve it.
in my experience, at a certain level people got to the rating they got by carrying the game( e.g going mid, solo farming/ganking etc...basically anything except supporting and being an initiator). some will keep this way of playing even in higher ups, which results in crap setups...
in short: suck it up and play support when your team is too retarded to pick a decent setup, get a crap score cause you're the only support and have to do all the bullshit work, getting crap stats, but hopefully increasing your win rating by doing so X_X'
but if you're down to 1550, gogo carry the game with a semicarry again lol >
PSR means Public Skill Rating. Part of this skill lies in dealing with your team, in the bracket you are currently in. Well, you do run into retards once in a while. But so does the opposing team. If you lose a lot more than you win, it's probably your own fault.
I haven't played a lot of matches since i started with this game, but now that I've learned many important aspects of the game, I've regained some stats playing with friends or by myself. Was down to 900 PSR, now 1350 and gaining. Was down to 29% wins, now 46%. It's doable.
Advice: Learn to play the different roles, and pick what's best for the team.
(And don't blame plp playing roles you don't even bother playing yourself)
Also, picking your server is decisive in match outcome. If you're alone, don't play against 3locks and any match with NO AB in title. (Unless you can get on the obvious "good" team.)

thats happening to me right now.
Im falling from 1680(or something) to now i think below 1600.
No problem though i just played different kind of heroes then before and could get up again
Ok. So if you leave a game, you are sent an AIDS needle. Additionally, you get +1 disconnect AND are forced to play as Kongor next game. You can't leave his lair, except when a rune spawns. You must run directly to the rune (still as Kongor) and guard it. If you do not do this, then HoN immediately shuts down and formats your hard drive and injects you with the AIDS needle.
you deserve 1550 if you lose that many games, don't blame it on other people.
