Default Do the Dota 2 Performance bars work?


Are they actually accurate? Or is it just a gimmick? Apparently 2 bars is and average player?

dunno but I've more than 2 bar on any one, I think it's 2,5 the average and I've absolutely no clue of what it is about And to be honest I'm surprised about some ratios, I suck with mirana and have high score and with CM I'm almost undefeated and have 3ish bars.

They work, the more you play the more accurate they are. You can't judge skill from 2-3 games played with one hero.

Check out my post about how they work

yo hey, I had a few games where I was able to create an opportunity for my team to win having ending scores of 15/50 for the two teams... of course everyone's K/D for my team was horrid but I was wondering how the skill bar would read that?

QFT.

It's better to ignore them. You don't have to get 4 bars just to be called "Pro".

KA ratio

correct role (e.g. not ks'ing with support)

Correct items they sure are

Those bars compare your performance with other people. When i play lion i usually go all support, warding, courrier, and supp items and i would end like 1-7-20 score at the end of the game and i had about 2.5 bars. And once i got paired with not that good players where carry couldn't stop auto attack even if i asked him, he was just pushing lane and diving under tower after 2 deaths like that i decided that i should stop leaving all farm for him and started stealling his farm. In the end we won i ended up with 15-6-15 score and when i looked at my lion performance it showed 4 bars.

TL;DR Those bars are just bullshit, i think valve should remove them. They only encourage players to kill steal more.

It's very improper. Played Bane only for 2 times (1 win;1 lose) and I got 3.2 bars. It's out of my 80 games.

It;s just bull, i don't have a single hero with 2 bars which is what it states as average. But I have several heroes at 5 bars. And pretty much everytime I play a hero it increases, never see it decrease lol. It doesn't make any sense.

Working for me so far. My skele king is highest which makes sense as ive owned both games I played with him, while my slardar and warlock are terrible because I played badly with those heroes.

I have my thoughts about these bars as well. The support heroes I'm good with have low bars, the support heroes I'm bad 'decent' with have higher bars then the ones I'm good at. Clinkz with whom I'm bad has the highest bars. However I have a positive k/d ratio with him compared to the support heroes...

Maybe this will shed light on the performance bars that the devs have implemented.

I have played furion 8 times with a 1-7 record but he is listed as my highest performance hero. In those 8 games I was quite farmed and my K/D ratio if averaged out would be 1.5:1 possibly? So I guess it doesn't take your W/L into account but rather what you did with your hero in the game.

They also take how you played compared to your team and enemys. What you skilled, what you buy, and ofc k/d.
