Default how to get into "very high" bracket?


i finally just made it to high skill in the dota 2 replays section after 220 games, trying to get to very high.. is it just based off of wins/losses? i have a 53% winrate randoming every game right now.. do you need more than 60% winrate or something?

The first rule of the very high bracket is don't talk about the very high bracket.



(Ask a stupid question...)

You don't want to be there. Nothing but trilaning, nature prophet pickers, anti-mage pickers, tryhards. Nothing but anti-fun.

I hated it when I reached the High-Level Bracket in Dota 2.

I had more fun playing with newbies than with elitists.

Winning a lot to be in the top 5% MMR.

If you win like 25-50 games in a row without losing, you should almost definitely get there.

It's an MMR system just like HoN. Win% doesn't matter because you might win games not worth many points, or you might lose games that are worth a lot. If you go on winning streaks, you're likely to get much more valuable matches to win.

Hmmm, just realized I've been picking sniper in very high level games.

Even worse is how bad my teammates were though lol. No frost bite until level 9, magic missile left at level 1 and aura maxed first on venge. And they were friends...

What's the point of these skills levels again? It seems like it would be better to just mix everyone tbh.

You know not everyone wants to play like for freaking TI3. Counterpicks, only picking top tier heroes, flaming if you should pick a hero, which isn't top tier atm etc. Warding / counterwarding 24/7, desperate smoke ganks, trilanes and forcing other teammates into picks they don't even want to play.
I used to think as well that this was more fun, up until some point, where I just find this fucking annoying from either side - Be it my team or the enemies. Also grow the **** up "lol u dont liekz thizz cuz u loos lolol naab lah"
Some people actually like not giving it all they got, playing casually just for fun and fucking around, but all these wannabe Na´Vi's iG's and LGD's in pubs are a fucking plague.

@topic: Being in very high bracket in replay section doesn't mean jack. Why? I'll give you a few examples:
singsing getting 6 times MoM on CK and yet raping the game
DeMoN playing Void and stacking bfurys
aui_2000 dagon syllabear
Dendi solo mid CM

And there are more of those examples of completely retarded games, where [pro]players, who with no doubt are in very high brackets, simply fuck around and these other "very high skilled" players get shit over by stupid things with their tryhard shit.

tl;dr: Very high brackets in replay section does not mean better games / teammates, nor does it actually represent your skilllevel.

Mad cuz bad. I play solo a lot,mostly against tryhards,and still rape them. Its fun for me because even though I'm playing for fun,picking any hero I want I own them when they are tryharding and stacking and warding, etc. I guess I like to troll wannabes.

The fact that I'm in v.high skill bracket doesnt matter, it's just there

I'll translate this for everyone else:

u naab lah im best dota player ever. beat everyone with any hero come at me bro HUEHUEHUE BRRRRRRRRR x0ax0ax0a #yolo
Also you obviously can't read properly.
I've played enough against these tryhards and won them often enough, but it's a pest to play with or against them nevertheless. When I play, I want to relax and play. Oh and fyi my replays are in very high bracket as well. Might as well just shut up if you have no clue, what you're talking about.

You still get the weird wtf moments in Very High Skill, last night I had a game that was supposedly "Very High Skill" where someone randomed Lich, he went to the safelane to babysit the carry, he died 3 times in 5 minutes then abandoned the game.

>_>

Basically, no matter how good you are, there's ALWAYS someone out there who can own you and make you look like a noob. No matter what bracket you are in.

I'm trying to figure out how to get OUT of Very High Skill because I want to mess around with weird stuff...

Hi xdv,
I have been in the Very High pool for quite some time. Look up my in game name zy.
Recently i noticed that I just got downgraded to the high pool cause i've been losing a ton of games. thats probably why. so u might just wanna mess around in the very high skill until u get downgraded lol

I find very high to be a double edged sword. Sometimes you get a good team that doesn't hurr durr incredibly hard and actually does their jobs. (supports actually supporting)

Other times you get a complete douche that will die once or someone on your team will die once and you never hear the end of it until you mute him. He then goes on to trashtalk everything and feed extra hard.

At least right now the picks are pretty open. Sure it gets annoying with a magnus/enigma pick on the enemy team most of the time, but at least people know what not to do for the most part. I remember seeing a PL get vlads vanguard and then say diffusal is bad in a match with a low end friend, thankfully I don't deal with that stupidity as much anymore.

Was playing there since my first few weeks in the game, so I don't know what I did.
However, recently I've been playing stacks with a lot of my friends who are sort of casual players and I'm at High right now. Doesn't matter anyway, does it?
