  • Dota 2 players do not panic (often)


Usually, you will start panicking once you think your game is going to hell especially you and team are feeding the enemy team fat as hell. You seldom see a Dota 2 Pro is panicking, once they know their strategy has failed then they will move try other options and move to the next strategy.

Example :

You have a tinker or Nature Prophet in your team, you can start rating even though it looks bad.

The best Dota 2 rat player and his team has won many matches because of his rating. This will give space and time to your team and your carries and specially your rat will start farming good. If you got a lucky chance, you can take barracks or even enemy ancient through ratting. Thus, do not panic and just plan for new strategies if the old strategy couldn’t work.


  • Define which role you are good at and play according to your best role

No one can play carry and support equally good as it’s against their natural play style. If someone claims he can, that means he will not be good at either of the role.

If you like to play aggressive, try to play tanks or nukers to take a solo kill. You can pick a hard carry if you like to farm until the end of time. If you do not like farming and just want to chill around the map also participate in team fights, you can choose to go for support, etc.


  • Good Dota 2 Knowledge Means Good Game

Dota 2 is like a 10th Grade class, and Dota 2 Game is your test. So if you got good knowledge about heroes, items, spells and Dota 2 mechanics, you are definitely going to do better than others.

If you know that Axe’s Ultimate “Culling Blade” can instantly kill any enemy with Dazzle’s “shallow grave” where as Necrophos’s Reaper Scyth can not kill enemy in Shallow Grave, you’ll not waste your ultimate. Therefore, good Dota 2 knowledge is important so you can plan your strategy to fight in the game. You can read the description of spells once you are free and another good website to provide Dota 2 knowledge is gamepedia site.

If you have good knowledge then you can make different combos of heroes like  DK has good armor, so he is good against physical djamage heroes and make a combo with those heroes who give him more armor / healing / damage to make him more useful in game.


  • Dota 2 is a Team Game, play like a team

Dota 2 is a Team Game, not a Solo First Person Shooter Game. If teammates start fighting each others, then that means you are giving benefit to the enemy team. However, what you should do if your ally is abusive or is a flamer? Simply mute him and concentrate on your game. If you have enough report options available, simply report him and he will get his due share.

You can never win a game alone, you may carry a game very well, but still you will need help / support of your teammates at all stages of the game.

Thus, read and implement tipis and tricks available on the internet is work for helping to win in a game.


  • Watch Dota 2 Pro Games and replay

Watching Dota 2 Pro games either live, on streams or recorded videos on YouTube will help you to learn new heroes. For instance, A’s player learned Storm spirit by watching games and replays of Suma1L form EG. A found that was awesome when read on Facebook and other places that he wrecked enemy teams with Storm Spirit. Watching your own replays really help as it shows your mistakes that you did or could have to avoid in order to show you the way you shall improve. Concentrate on your own heroes and and leave what others have been doing in the game as you can’t do anything about others except to improve your own gameplay. Watch those replay at part which you think you do not doing good, in order to avoid those mistake and improve to win in the games.


  • Make a Combo, no matter how small

Make a combos in your team no matter how small it is. It’s always good that you can make a combo of 2 heroes than you have no combo at all. Also, you can increase the effectiveness of your combo by using those items. Stronger combo with more synergizing spells heroes increase chances of winning. Enhance your good knowledge about Dota 2 heroes, spells and items for you to make a better set of combo.


  • Remember you couldn’t master all heroes

For instance,some players can play almost 25-30 heroes perfectly, 20-25 heroes on average but he/ she might actually quite noob for the rest of 50 heroes. By perfectly which means this player almost own the game with those heroes unless whole enemy team is focusing and countering on his/her weakness.


  • Items in Dota 2 are Never Core, these are Always Situational

There might be some items that you can consider core for some heroes but you may totally disregard that item in some games because of enemy’s hero line up. Thus, always build your items keeping your enemy team hero line up.


For instance if you are supposing to play Magnus, you make Arcane Boot, Dagger, Force Staff, Refresher Orb, Assault Cuirass and Vladimir Offering, which means you are going to play like a support. On the other hand if you make Power Treads, Battlefury, Deadlus, Assault Cuirass, Monkey King Bar and Mask of Madness, then you are going to play as carry build. Thus, you need to see enemy team also your team if you guys need a carry or hardcore support in order to decide which items you should make on your hero.


  • Dota 2 is a game but never take it lightly when playing

If you want to enter Dota 2 pro scene, you should never take things lightly in the game. Everyone must have experienced for winning a game while playing but lose the game in the end due to 1 of the mistake. Most of time those mistake happened when wrong team fight or 1 by 1 team fighting.

Although Dota 2 looks like is a just a game to play for fun, but you wouldn’t feel fun when lose in a game. Instead to feel regret that you lose in a game, just avoid those mistake you did and make sure the mistake wouldn’t be repeated on next time.
