Everyone has a different gaming 'niche'. What kind of gaming history do you have? Even with the response after mine, I still feel my advice is great for true beginners. He IS correct, but still, some people have a longer learning curve. Eventually, you should be able to go against impossible bots and win since they are still relatively dumb.
People will always surprise you in real games though, so its good to have a solid foundation before venturing out to anything beyond limited heroes, after you feel secure with medium and hard bots.
Give it some time and patience, and find people willing to do a few rounds with you for advice and see where you end up.
I would offer, but my work schedule gets me home late at night (EST) and im usually in veg mode. Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays i'm off though so maybe hit me up then? I have good friends to help too.

It makes the bots just a bit smarter, but is enough in most ways to make a difference. Like 500MMR difference between 2,5k and 3k. Suddenly enemy team has supports and wards and detection and stuff.

Bots on unfair is downright unfair tongue.gif they gain +25% XP and Gold.

I think it just takes me a while for me to learn things because I've been playing CSGO for around 2 years to learn and I'm still not the best.
Dota 2 is my first moba, so I'm really not familiar with these kind of games, which probably has most to do with why I'm so bad. tongue.gif

First step, stop saying you're bad tongue.gif

You're "learning". The fact you want to get better is a step above most who are convinced they're Dota's gift to man and need no advice from anyone else. Listening is key in Dota. It's a team game above all else. No single carry or support can carry a whole team. Even uber Sven or Faceless, et al. isn't enough to drop any reasonably intelligent team. However... everyone getting caught in a chrono, with no bkb or jug spin, etc... well... GG lol

I found some beginner videos on YouTube that I put it in a playlist that I'm going to watch later. Hopefully this will get me familiar with different roles, the way you play them, and some basic terminology.

All I know right now is Ganker, Jungler, Support, Carry, Solo, Lane, last hitting and that's about all I can think of off the top of my head.

https://purgegamers.true.io/g/dota-2-guide/ purge is the man you want to goto to learn the basics of Dota. He also has a YouTube channel that will help you out. Merlini is also good but not as newbie friendly as Purge with his content. Their twitch streams are good also not a bunch retarded twitch chat spam and the usual chat nonsense most of the time.
