I feel like half the people that play dota intentionally ruin games based on what heroes they pick thumb.gif

I generally avoid weekend dota, quality of players/people seems to be a lot worse. Also I realized after my slow and agonizing descent into MMR hell from 4400-> 3850 ( stuck here ~ 3 months ago and keep getting stuck here) , the best way to get your mmr up is to just play carry/offlane carry. (Jungle carry is typically awful in pubs)

So after about 1800 games of support I switched to carry and so far I've gone up 350 pts after the switch, and will switch back to support when i get to the 4400/4500 range. My games are so much easier now - instead of 40-50 minute grind it out games that usually end up in a loss it's 30-40 minute stomps that I can mess around in. I didn't realize how mechanically deficient so many carry players are.

Also been messing around with offlane void (inspired by ixmike) http://dotabuff.com/players/86715129/matches?hero=faceless-void&lobby_type=&game_mode=&match_type=real to surprisingly good results. Does well as long as the other team doesn't go a heavy push lineup.

What's your MMR for ranked matches now?

Need to get it higher if you want to have better games (or just having more games under your belt in general). Less intentional feeding, less abandons, (slightly) less trash talk, players that are willing to pause and wait if someone DC, etc.

Bad things will still happen, just not as frequent.

The down side for solo queue however in higher MMR is that sometimes you meet a team that is really, a team. You see teamwork that happens in pro-matches. Chained skills from multiple heros, nice lane rotations, etc. Just hard to deal with that in a random team.
