srry about earlier i didn't get your friend request so i added u
I like playing any role, and trust me, the best way to not lose games is to find someone that synergises with you and friendlist them. I play a good support and I added a guy to the clan+friend list who enjoys playing carry, who can farm well and has good awareness and judgement. We decisively win our lane 90% of the time with something like FA+Glacius. I have another friend who plays a great support so I can get **** loads of farm playing who is my favourite carry to play. Honestly, just not playing solo Queue can be everything you need to win.
Personally, I'm laddering an older account through the 1600s right now and I'd love to have a 1650 pure support player to queue with, so I doubt you'll have much trouble finding someone with the same thought-process.
If you want to get higher just play with some friends, but meh... I just think solo que is the way to go. If you cant have enough impact on the game you will most likely lose and you will be in your own bracket and not just carried to higher. Also dont blame your team, think it like this. Other team has 5 1650 player and your team has 4 + you and if I understood right you think your better than 1650. If you look that "closely" you should figure out that the team with 4 1650 players and you should have higher chance of winning against a full team of 1650s.
I suggest you to watch pro streams and play more, when you get better youll most likely go up. It takes some people more time to improve than others.
You do not play a decent support if you are averaging 1.7 wards a game. I don't even play dedicated support and I average 3.2...
Click on your support heroes in the herodex, and you should be averaging 6-8+ wards/game if you are playing a 'decent' support
you should try playing gankers and semi-carries. they are the easiest to move up with.
besides that, most people simply do not kill enough creeps. it's a sad fact of life that hon and dota are about killing creeps. killing heroes is 10x more fun, especially when you know you are better than your opponents, but if you don't balance killing with getting a lot of creeps, your gpm will suffer.
You might be just have lousy start when you start playing HoN like I do.
I was a lousy one when started playing HoN, got hit 10xx MMR floor, trying to grasp all the basics.
Now, 8xx games already and still at 14xx mmr (+400), if I times three my match, do proportions counting, I might be just around your MMR now when I have my 3K games counter.
So don't worry bro, you aren't the only one.
Keep playing, MMR doesn't matter a lot. Fun is good.
*Btw, I also met someone with 13xx MMR, He got around 1,5+ KDR, 300+ GPM (might be 400+), and lots of wards. Reason? He simply lose/trolls lots of game by losing not helping the team but no k:d, just warding to get silvers. Then put all into one game with Big K low D. Talks a lot in-game, funny person.

Ask for show picks. If you got no carry pick carry if they got no support pick support and so on.
Yeah, solo queuing and picking support can be super risky. You are 100% relying on your teammates to carry and be good, even if you support like a champ they can still crap the bed and leave you with a loss. as said before, best thing you can do is buddy up with people you've seen not suck, and go from there.
Recently I have been playing supports to raise my TMM with a Hard Carry friend I found in some 1570 game for which I am now hovering around 1650. The key I found to make an influence to win your lane or game is play extremely aggresively but wise. This does your ad carry to be awake between last hits to be able to do this and no you should not put yourself in stupid risk situations. I often play 3 heroes as supports lately which are Pyromancer, Galc and Empath which Ill make a set up for an easy kill such as harrassing on the enemy till they are half HP, pull the creep stack and then approach from the side to get a kill (or at least make them lay brix!). When I manage to get striders I will roam to mid attempt kills there (people like Deadwood or pebbles <3 you for giving them a sweet set up for a free combo kill and normally the mid at <1700 doesn't expect to be ganked) and then run back and suprise attack the top lane again and so on. Supports are extremely effective of getting kills early game for your team and esentually giving a good guide on how the game will go.
I will have some use of you
Please let me mentor you, are you online now?
Aw snap offline D: Pm me in-game when you get on, my in-game name is Rkey.
If you really are a good enough support, you should rise out of 1600 quickly. At that rating, people start to appreciate a good support. Just look for a decent carry player you can team up with.
can you deliever some of your replays where you think you did well? maybe we can point out possible mistakes so you can become better!
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.
