Sick of playing perfectly and losing

3 posts in this topic

I've been trying my hardest to climb in Ranked. I started the season at Gold 2, and have now fallen to Gold 4 from losing streaks. How half my games go these days. 1. I call Support 2. I play nearly perfectly 3. We lose, with me having DOUBLE the healing of the enemy healer, sometimes doubling an enemy double support as a solo support (not an exaggeration), and no deaths, with healing percent around 50%. And yet my teammates are comical. Once we lose a fight, they do things like hang around alone against the entire enemy team, push alone, blame teammates, and generally be useless. Nor do I cause the frustration, I'm nearly always polite and helpful (encouraging teammates, making strats, etc.). Yet I keep losing. Do I need to do TRIPLE the enemy healer to win, or am I just cursed? Perhaps someone from IcyVeins could spectate a match of mine and tell me what, if anything, is wrong with my play. I know that's a big favour, but I'd appreciate it. I can upload replays if someone tells me how.

You need to find a team to party with, and build synergy. PUGing is always doomed to fail.

Playing around the teammates can help a lot too. I don't really touch ranked anymore outside of 5-stack HL, but whenever I used to solo queue I would always pick someone on our team and just pick for them. If we've got a Greymane, I take Lt. Morales. Got a Kel'Thuzad or Jaina? Grab Ana. Falstad? Well, guess you're flying with him as Brightwing.

It seems harsh to ignore the other 3 people, but it was generally a far better solution that trying to help everyone. I'd stick with that hero, always have ults for them and always dive with them.

      Hi folks,
      first, i am no native speaker so excuse my speeling etc.
      I made a Combo Dragon Priest, like here, only changed the 4/8 Taunt Dragon with Ysera cos i dont have the taunt, and not enough dust to craft it.
      First time ever i reached with this deck Rank 10. And i am a little proud of it. BUT, now i only face 3 Decks. The Priest with 2 dmg refresh heropower, jade druid and the rouge with no 2 mana +1+1 combo... and i loose 4 of 5 games. Is it my deck thats not good against it or as the thread topic says i am just dull/stupid. Its frustrating if you see your opponents does their combo and your helpless about it
      And no i dont want to spend real money for more cards. Actually i have 65 gold and 230 Dust. Hopefully you understand my problen. And in best case you can help me 
       
      Greetings

      Hey guys, i need an advice about enjoying the game. I started the game in almost plat 5, and now I'm 400 points in gold 3. And I wasn't even insta picking assassins, but I still had people feeding and afking. As you can guess, this really tilted me and kill my mood for playing ranked. I haven't been plat league since last year. Can someone give me any advice?

      Servus, wir sind momentan auf der suche nach 3 Leuten für ein ranked Team.
      Blackknight#2405(Support/Flex), Woddy#22984(Flex).
      Wir haben selber erst diesen Monat wieder angefangen, nach einer längeren Pause. Ihr müsst nicht die besten Spieler sein, nur das Grundverständnis vom Spiel sollte schon da sein.(Wir sind beide noch unranked)
      Kritik sollte gut aufgenommen werden und als besserungs Vorschlag angesehen werden, natürlich nehmen wir Kritik auch gerne entgegen, also wenn ihr meint wir machen irgendwas falsch oder könnten was besser machen sagt es uns ! :)
      Ihr solltet mindestens Lvl 150 sein und vom Alter 16+
      Wir hoffen das wir ein gutes Team zusammen kriegen und so gemeinsam aufsteigen können. Falls ihr Interesse habt addet uns einfach und schreibt uns an. Dann können wir ein Paar Runden machen und schauen wie wir so miteinander auskommen.
      Danke für das lesen und einen schonen Tag noch ;)

      Hi guys. I got this idea from a thread on reddit talking about how players "share" the challenge a friend quest to double the gold earning by finding players on discord who have the same quest and playing against them so both players get 160g. My innitial thought was how to filter out people who may pretend to have the same quest to get the 80g, without the actual quest owner getting an extra 80g in return. I don't know if there are people like that out there, but I feel icy-veins being a more closely knit community, would inherently keep such people at bay. We can have a thread for each region and people can edit their posts once they have found someone and completed the quest.
      I thought this would be a nice way for people who don't have rl friends playing the game to find new friends  to share gold with. Plus it doubles the gold you earn from that particular quest. I think many people would be interested in getting max gold before Un'goro hits. I don't know if icy-veins policy allows for this or not so I thought I'd ask what you guys thought about this?

      The place where I simply cannot climb in Ranked. I've constantly been taking steps to improve myself, trying to improve in areas such as map awareness, restricting myself to first meta heroes then to meta supports in Ranked, and I'm constantly cheerful and helpful, encouraging a flagging team and talking down those who are on tilt (or just trolling). And yet my rank cannot improve. I calibrated at Gold 3, then quickly fell to Gold 5. From there I've been working hard (to the extent of only playing when I'm in a good mood, to ensure I never play my worst), but I simply cannot climb. For every match with a cooperative team, there's a match with a troll or flamer who drags the game down. I know I'm the consistent factor and the enemy team is just as likely to have muppets as my team is, but then why are all my improvements having no effect? Advice, or even coaching to detect underlying flaws in my playstyle, would be much appreciated. If there is a method to share my Replays, tell me and I'll post some of my games, both good and bad, here for perusal. Thank you.
