Lets look at it this way. The people that are saying "I can get out of a solo mmr muck, so either im alot better than you are, or you arent trying hard enough"
You look at the game like this "pick MK, go MID,punch till the games over... Went better than expected" What you dont seem to understand is that there are OTHER ways to play the game. Not everyone wants to go facesmasher every game and flex the epeen of hon (I hate this game sometimes, I really do)
Some people enjoy being a support hero, or playing the tankier roles (you may not get the kill, but the thrill of teamfights draws you every time) so this whole mentality of "go carry or go home" is exactly why, When you with your smurf accounts, blow straight through the 1500 bracket to "show how easy it is" you skew your own account of the information. You get +20 mmr and the one time bonuses of immortal and bloodbath (I think its bloodbath, idk) and already have atleast 60+mmr on the spot. One game. +60, and it barely changes till you are out of that bracket. Lose every game you play till you lose the additional mmr gains THEN make your way back up +5 at a time. Tell me then that the two carries in the long lane that though they had a good thing going because "go carry or go home" is the defining terminology. too bad they dont have the skills (as you clearly do, you ****in smurf prick) to withstand what you bring or even basic knowledge of the game. "its easy to gank them, whats so hard to understand??? just gank them and win." It isnt that simple, maybe when you try to play the game the way it was intended. IE verbal communication, text, pings, wards, warnings, group ganks, team fights. you know, the stuff that makes the game what the game is? the people that I come across in the 1400-1500 bracket dont change. they either know as much or more than I do (im not saying im the be-all-know-all, but that dosent mean I know nothing) Or they dont even understand basic game information (SERIOUSLY, HOW CAN YOU NOT KNOW SOMETHING IS CHANNELLED... IT SAYS IT ON THE SPELL) OR you get the kids that because, you have some more experience than them, attempt to alleviate their shortcommings by giving them some helpful pointers, at which time they just ignore you or worse. accuse you of being a scumbag then intentionally start diving or not playing in a smart fashion. Summary, you ask??? oh hey.. here it comes.
SMURFS ARE THE REASON, RAGERS ARE THE REASON.
You can say they arent, but every example of kids blowing games is because they either rage because of people who either dont care cause they are f2p ( me no likey f2p) OR because the smurf is trying to get his account to intentionally LOSE MMR so they can troll bads all day. This game WAS fun in beta. Since the creation of smurf accounts... this game has gone into the garbage tier of player enjoyment and only exists to serve the epeen or the very top of play. You want a reason to atleast ATTEMPT to play dota2 over this??? Go on the forums for 10 seconds
If you're too sucky to advance in MMR, you stay in your bracket or drop. That's how I see it as the system working properly.
