I just switched over from league of legends not to long ago but, I have been trying to improve my gameplay and sooner or later actually raising my PSR. I was always thinking to myself whether or not I was holding myself back by using mods, like AOE range indicator, last hit indicator and etc. Should I just use UI mods and remove the rest to up my game.
P.S. Do High PSR players use mods?
Things like last hit assist, tower range, etc are all crutches, play with them for a little while if you feel like it's helping you learn but sooner or later, learn how to walk without them.
I'm pretty certain when i play with or against someone with tower range mod as a 1350psr player harasses perfectly on the edge of the tower range. The thing is, i know where that is without the mod because i know the land marks of the ground/the trees, etc
Last hit assist - helps you if you're new to the game entirely, otherwise, honestly makes no difference in improving your skill once you've played a few games as every hero, infact i'd say i lasthit better without it.
AoE range indicator is eh, i have never used it, it seems like trash to me that should be banned ala valk javelin mod. It's even more easymode than easymode and terribly ugly having grey cricles everywhere. In time you just "know" if your'e in range of that hammer/scream/comet/lightning bolt etc
Best mod out there is top hat devourer.
TLDR: Yes. You will suck for a few games, then get better without all the bullshit crutch mods.

Mods are not very useful tbh. You should get used to playing without them.
Thanks for the tips, I am now just using my own knowledge of the game to get better and not the "crutches". Also you really did not answer whether or not using UI options is alright or not because really only use mini ui as it clears up a lot of space on my screen. Also is it alright if I use a hero guide since I don't know what items or skills to level up on my hero and is their a way to understand what to get as a starting item for different heroes.

Knowledge that you read and then apply yourself is always ok. Stuff like tower range mods are a crutch because they remove the necessity of learning, remembering and application of things that will help you get better at the game.
Stuff like guides are advice at best, with detailed explanations as to why, or personal experiences that validate it either way.
guides are good.
mods are bad.
Let me spell it out plain for you
Angry people complain about the things I do
I'm not changing direction, I'm stepping my game up
Maintaining my name, the same way I came up.
Truth is, I thought it mattered
I thought that music mattered.
But does it? Bollocks!
Not compared to how people matter.
You should get the tower range mod and use it for about 10 games to get the hang of the tower ranges / sight ranges. Learning it without the mod would take a lot longer, but you're better off switching the mod off after about 10 games with it on.
I have returned
I will take your advice into account and use these mods offgame and just learn them and only use UI mods and that small hero guide mod.
