I can't count how many (last) matches I dominated middle lane, not as carries, but as Kraken, Midas, Pebbles (mostly gankers, or tanks). I was dominating the game even without wards or upgraded courier. I was like few kills to 0 deaths at the start, tried to gank, but the ganks looked like that:
Team crying for gank, so Im coming on haste rune, and when I was almost there they saw me so they started to run away (enemies) and my allies didn't even cast spell or MOVE to that place, when I asked why didn't they go they just answered that I'm mid so I have to do it alone (2vs1). My last games were 20-0 for us ending with 30-50 for them. My team always looks like brown is completely retard that plays first time or his ~max20th game and pink is bigger retard and noob than brown. Sandwraith pink 20 min without boots and lifetube, just hatchet and buckler (of course he kept feeding with monarch top), when I try to help them, to stop the feeding frenzy they just ignore me and fail last hits creeps while Im trying to kill enemies, of course enemies running away in safety or Im dying. So to all those who said "if you are losing because you cant carry the game - you belong to that bracket" - you are ****ing retarded, if EVEN one of your team is complete noob or retard or both you can't win, you just can't. Had few situations that I was 13-0 as a carry, but was losing the game anyway, not because I couldn't carry but enemies just focused on me and I was dying and team with no items and skill just kept running around doing ****, or just team kept feeding them so hard that even my 13-0 couldn't overcarry them. Trolls will say "go back to LoL" (my bro playing it) and as I can see when he is playing that if he has troll in team he got big chances to win, but in HoN if y ou got feeder, troll etc it's just done, you lost no matter how good you are unless enemies are worse than this noob.
tl;dr - if you got moron in team = its gg
Only pub trainers say that nonsense. I was 1850+(post compression) when I had 2 good friends I always played with. They stopped playing to move over to dota 2. Now I"m down to 1700 and I tend to be in the same position as you. I royally own my lane but my teammates tend to also get royally owned. It's pretty much russian roulette in solo queue, I just tend to get the bullet.
I just had a moon queen who decided that "I sucked". She then proceeded to sit in the jungle to farm a doombringer first item.
She could do this because the enemy team was behind, and they didn't have any reason to push up.
Needless to say, the doombringer was lost swiftly. 60 minute game of asking a teenager pumped on puberty hormones to come push.
Nowhere to report such behavior. GG s2.
Edit: Oh, and when she lost it, she sat in the jungle farming another one.

“You promised me Scout,
that if I followed you, you would walk with me always.
But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand.
Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
“The years when you have seen only one set of footprints, my child, is when I carried you.”
Yea some will say its just whining. But it's real.
Playing solo, doesn't matter how good you are, you need luck to begin with. I have plenty of games where i do my part and even more than that. I give room and time for a stupid pred on my team farm for 20 minutes without his need on battles, and then when we finally need him he only has steam boots and some bracers. It's sad because similar examples happens almost everyday.
same here bro, i feel ya, these feeders/trolls etc are like babies, u need to hold their hands.
wtf are you lot on about, i've won 1v5s with 1 person gold, YOU CAN win with 1/2/3 retards going 0-15. if you cannot leave a bracket IT IS NOT ****ING BAD LUCK. Sooner you realise that, sooner you get better. You won't admit this, you will say i am wrong, but YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO BE HIGHER if you cannot get higher. i only solo, it doesnt make much difference until like very high level
There is a definite percent of luck in this game. Lucky runes that decide a gank's outcome, last hit accuracy which depends on the state of the player (drunk or on point), creep blocks, what unit the tower decides to shoot.
Easiest way is to grab mid with a ganker/carry.
Please explain to me how I can create a new account and play to 1700-1800 mmr with 80% win ratio several times without failure then? I'm just getting lucky every single time? Yes you might be able to get stuck at a rating for a few games if you have bad luck (only if it's somewhat close to your real rating though), however if you play a significant amount of games (50+) without gaining a fair amount of rating it's almost completly certain that you belong there. Claiming anything else means that you fail to comprehend basic math.
I am in a similar situation, 1800 pre mmr squish, now i am round and circles up to 1750 straight back down to 1650 (one loss streak) back and forth, I had 6 games in a row the other day where each game my team mates argued with eachother and one started crying and just fed, intentionally tower dove and fed. We were ahead by a significant amount but they just ran past tower into their base and fed.
Another game, a hammer + pyro lane vs a solo Moon Queen fed her something like 12 kills early game. They cried for ganks when I am legionnaire in the jungle that doesn't even have a life tube or boots yet.
Back to back failures. I got to 1800 solo queueing before, I know I can do it again, it will just take some huge effort on my part and getting lucky with a few people who actually know how to carry ( i generally support or jungle/roam)

Well this is to 90% true, i played several accounts up to 1700(before compression) while soloeing and i am not even super amazing, but rather decent.This, exactly. There's a reason why pro players, when they make smurf accounts, are easily able to get to a high MMR in a matter of days. It's not because they were lucky, it's because they have the skill needed to belong there. Obviously they may have a few bad games along the way, but for the most part they'll manage to climb back up to their rating in no time.
You sure cannot win 100% of your games, but if you dont belong in that bracket you will win at least 80% of them (only true if you insist on playing the midlane every game).
If you cant win games by yourself in the sub 1600 bracket(higher tiered players can decide most of their games solo till like 1800) you are not even remotly decent at the game.
AHHAHAHAAH dude wake up, stop masturbate on moon or testie stream, and think about that an average player maybe wants to play normally, not destroying his mouse with 1200 apm, and maybe playing support or funny heroes, it's a fact that now it's impossible for AN AVERAGE PLAYER to get out from the 1400-1500 bracket with the new amazing 5 mmr gain per match.
2 games and almost 1600. Yes, I did get lucky with the teams. That doesn't make this test invalid, as it's more likely your team is stronger then the enemy if you're below your own bracket. That's because you only have to roll the retard dice four times, while the enemy has to roll it 5 times.
So if you're avarage, you should get out without much issue. I guess a 60% winning chance would make sense. So it may feel a bit slow, but you'll get there.
And yes I did ward quite a bit. It's normal to buy wards. You always need them so if your team doesn't buy them then buy them yourself
