Sometimes you will lose a game during the picking phase (it happens all the time) and then feel annoyed or angry you spent 30-50 minutes in a game that you knew you were gonna lose.

Happens to me a lot of the times when I solo-que because you'd actually find it pretty surprising how many people don't know how to play a team based game lol and can't pick a well balanced team.

Just a suggestion, if you're not knowledgeable on all the heroes you should not random in a public game. It's bad for both you and your team. I've seen people random then ask for a swap because they can't play who they got. If that's the case, why random in the first place?

So instead of jumping straight into normal games after almost 12 months of not playing any, I decided to do some single draft matches.

Played 2, won both. First time I was VS, didn't start out too well, but as the game progressed I was able to get some good swaps off. Second game I picked Luna and had mid. Kunkka was out laning me badly, but after getting a good gank, things swung in my favor.

Overall, pretty happy with my first games in almost a year.

Did you just start a new dota acct, or a smurf? just saw your name in channel and you have some nice (but very few ) wins.


Also for those interested interesting Dota 2 "Staff Cup"

I feel if I wait I should fill in the gap that our team is missing, so instead I hit random right away and live with whatever I get. If they are that concerned with hard countering me then they are usually worried about the wrong guy as I'm usually (95% of the time) not the best guy on my team. I play the game for fun so and usually solo and I'm not worried if I lose a game or two, I'm not a pro and don't expect the people I get to play with to be.
