Dota 2: Jukes

IceFrog do his best and make an ideal game from such simple fan-made map. Each new match played differently. Secret lies in the variety of hero combinations and items, proper use of map and understanding of the games mechanics. We will talk talk about this in that article, but in the contest of Juking.


Juking – an integral part of the game, dodge skill from blows and spells, the correct use of regional advantages, and unexpected, as they may seem, crazy moves. Some of things are difficult and beginners doubtfully can use them, but other basic, easy to learn and apply in practice. Good players are distinguished from normal in the possession of such techniques. In the conventional sense Junking – means to dodge enemy attacks, run through forest, avoiding spells, etc. However, such basic skills can be used not only in the escape, but also on the stage of lining or in team fights.

Easy line

With a right movements support heroes not only leaves Carrt with creeps tete-a-tete, but also can completely steal all exp and money from the enemy hardliners. Of course some play with support only for fun, or just do not know how to play them properly. They push lines, attack creeps and etc. But a good support, that know a “secret” trails in jungle can easily harras the enemy without being notice by creeps.

While we use standart trail in jungle, we can not surprise our opponent. But if we use that “secret” trails, then we can flank our enemies, or just inflict a surprise attack that will chill him a little bit. Do not forget that your Main Objective – Let you main carry a safe lining, and let him freefarm as long as possible. Ganking enemies is not our job.

Dota 2 easy line jukes

These positions are the most comfortable for the supports. It give a great review of the map, variability of movements, and the ability to pool a large camp of neutral creeps. Remember that wards are your job, always keep enemies in sight.Dota 2 easy line

With successful juking you will hit your enemies with hit or two and then hide in the fog of war or trees. Feel free to use your attacking abilities or simply harras him. If you do all properly then the enemy has only 2 options: Retreat in jungle, or stay and risk with his own life.

Pay attention to the time – every 22 and 52 sec creeps walk past by tier-1 tower. Pass these creeps and keep to zone enemy. If you can drive him under a tower then you have done all right.

Hard Line

What can you do at a hard line if you meet a really good team, in which support know their role? Answer is simple, try to get as much exp as you can, and wait for a help. But there is a few tips. If you play as a Dire then you can take this (on picture below) position and just sit there and collect exp. Remember that you will receive exp only if creeps are killed in 1300 range.

Dota 2 free exp

Of course there is a possibility that support can check this spot, but even in that case you have a way to retreat. While you hero receive exp you can drink a tea, or just look at the map more closely. At 3-4 min you will have a 5 lvl. You will have an advantage in exp if opponent supports shared exp with theirs carry.

Middle line

Juking on middle line requires some certain skill. There is no trees, and you can not wait for help from anywhere. How to juke then? First of all juking – intellectual competition between players in which you need to use everything that you can.

While playing some heroes ( Shadow fiend, Magnus, Kunkka and etc) that have animation of skills you can use that skill and then immediately cancel it by pressing S button. If you done this properly then your hero will start an animation of attack, but mana will not be consumed. The enemy, seeing or hearing the attack may depart or cancel their attack. Such simple trick can beat the opponent in the number of finished off creeps, and also you can bait them for some spells.

Dota 2 mid jukes

Also on the middle line you should take into account the factor of relief. At night, when the viewing distance decreases, the characters do not see what is happening on the hill. So it is possible to catch the enemy hero, for example, with the ultimate from Shadow Fiend.

There is still a popular feature of using illusion runes. Bite on the illusion in the early game is quite difficult to read, as the heroes damage is small, but it’s still a risk. Employing this rune, stop and run with one of your copies, and most likely, the enemy will follow it.

League of Legend: Basic Advices #2

In our last post, we started talking about the most basic advices when playing a MOBA game League of Legends. Today we will continue this topic.

In this article, we will discuss the most important aspects of the game such as your mood on the game and careful control of the minimap.

Stay Determined.

Stay Determined

Always set yourself to win, even if your whole team are “feeding” an enemies, or someone on your team left in the AFK. Once I was a very toxic player and constantly pointed out on the errors of my allies, i wrote that it is a loss, etc. It brings a very bad result because the Allies began to debate with me, die just to anger me, go away in the AFk, etc.

My first and most important advice – try to write in a chat only if it necessary and in the case, also never blame your allies in something, all players makes mistakes and if you point them into it they will be just dismoraled and nothing more.

Never insult anyone, even if they have done something wrong. Good behavior even in selection part plays an important role. Try to write your suggestions in positive way just like, “Friends, Please let me go mid” and other similar positive phrase, and you probably will go on a desired line, but if you write something like “Mid or Feed” then with a high probability allies will do everything to spite you.

Stay positive

If a person says, for example, “mid or AFK“, or that he plays only on a particular line, it is better to give it to him, otherwise he may feed your opponents. Good behavior and a positive attitude to the game will greatly increase your chances of winning!

Map Control.

Map control is playing a decisive role in the game. The most important place to ward are:

  • Dragon / Nashor.
  • Top: Tribush and river.
  • Mid: situational, there should be a lot of wards.
  • Bot: Tribush, river and nice to have a ward in the enemy forest.

League of Legends Map major points

At the moment, there is an excellent trinket, which cost 250 gold and you can buy it  only after 9 level. It accumulates charges every 90 sec (maximum of 2 charges) and gives you an ability to place a ward which lasts for 3 minutes. I think this is a great item is for all roles, except for a supports (They have a Sight Stone).

Correct placement of wards plays an important role in achieving the victory.

League of Legend: Basic Advices #1

Elo Boost. Where to start?

Elo boost

A small preface:

I decided to write a guide about “how you can improve your chances of winning in Solo“, ie raise ELO. I play League of Legends from the 1st season and has seen a lot in the league. I boost people in about one and a half years. The decision to start boosting career came after I started to win a lot of games and promote myself to Diamond 2, I have decided that you can not just play for fun, but also to earn some money. I was afraid to take first orders, because i was afraid that i will lose all that is possible, but in the end nothing happened and after a year and a half I have absolutely all positive reviews. Of course,where were accounts which do not yield to Boost. I sit in the game for days and I could not move further, but in the end my persistence win. Recently, I created this site and decided to blog and write guides on how I am doing a boost, helping you to understand the ways of raising ELO.

Well, let’s start!

Where do start?

This guide will consist of facts which I have outlined for myself for a time, that i played in League of Legends, a supervision of my clients and reasons why they ask me to boost them. My opinion may differ from yours.

Find Your Champion

Elo boost champions

One of the major errors in self-boost is that the person is trying to play on a huge number of characters, and it did not do it good. I made for myself the condition that i will play ranking games on a single role, and I choose 1-2 of the hero and no more. (My peak is: Mid – Annie Ori; Top – Timo; ADC – Caitlyn, Graves; Support – Sona, Annie; Forest – Amumu). But you have to learn how to play at all the lines for the successful ELO boost. It is advisable to choose balanced characters that will not be nerfed in the near future due to the fact that they are too strong. From the pull of my characters I changed only Jungle champion because Riot constantly rework and balance forest. I do not deny the fact that people can play on the large number of characters and win games alone, but it is much better to master your skill on a small number of heroes and win the game in solo.

Finally – Final

Dota 2 mmr boost

Hello again. Today we will finish our rubrick about Best Heroes to boost solo MMR for Dota 2.

Pay your attention to the basics. Almost every time your perfomance is more important than the hero that you choose. As i mentioned in last part, you can boost your rating with ANY character.

Attention! First of all, this review is relevant for players with a low rating (~ 4000 MMR).


  • Doom
  • Wind Ranger


Doom dota2


  • Excellent growth of force +3.2.

You can buy almost everything at Doom. But always evaluate the situation and collect only those items that are needed at the moment.

Wind Ranger

A simple hero who can dominate from the start. One successful binding can turn a game. Inflict incredible damage. Perhaps the best hero to quickly raise the rating.

Our core item will be Maelstorm. Before start to whine that nobody buy this item in professional games, remember that you play in Pub games. A lightning will give us a bonus damage, attack speed and allow to quickly destroy bundles of creeps.

Secon core item – Blink Dagger. It will allow us to initiate, or escape from the battle.



Dota 2 beginners guide #6

Another Hero pack

Hello and welcome! Today we will take a look at another heroes that can help you to raise your Solo MMR. Todays heroes are not standart, and because of that enemies would be confused.

Today’s heroes are :

  • Leshrac
  • Bloodseeker
  • Gyrocopter




  • Incredibly strong character in Middle lane
  • Good attack animation
  • Low cooldown and mana cost on the Lightning Storm, allowing him to farm creeps , harass the enemy and push the line without problems.
  • It causes the enemy to kill the creeps under his tower
  • Relevant at all stages of the game. Of course, if you do not lose your line. Difficult to believe in that.


  • The hero is very dependent on its mana
  • Stan is skill based and hard to use
  • At the beginning of the game have not so much HP, but it changes with the advent of Bloodstone.


Leshrac skill

Do not always blindly copy an item and skill buildes. Assess the situation and buy / level what is really needed. Sometimes, the stun on the first level will be needed if you go with the team into the enemy’s forest or ambushe a rune.



Hero is suitable for beginners. It is easy to learn how to play, he is strong and with a little practice it will become easy MMR earner.


  • High damage at start
  • The ability to recover HP from creeps and heroes murder
  • The high movement speed, when opponents have little HP

  • There is much stronger late carry heroes. We need to start wreak havoc much earlier
  • Have not control before the Abyssal Blade


Bloodseeker skill

Bloodseeker have a great variety of different item buildes. Always buy what you need. Some items may be useless against certain heroes. For example, it is not necessary to collect Shadow Blade against the Bounty Hunter and Slardar, or if your team already have invisible hero and opponents have to buy some Sentry.

If you have a lot of money you can stock Moonshard. And do not forget to leave money on buyback 🙂



Universal carry, which mainly relies on teamfights. You should take him only if you feel that the team is more or less adequate.


  • Good attack animation
  • Quickly gets core artifacts due Dominator and stacks of ancient creeps
  • Have a powerful magic spell
  • Strong AOE damage
  • Low mana cost on skills


  • Giro is very thin in the initial stages
  • Small damage from auto attaks at the start


Gyrocopter skill

level up your Rocket Barrage to the maximum, to kill the enemy on the line and to farm forest faster. Also you can max Flack cannon early if you able to quickly gather dominator. Capture an forest creep, then make stacks with this creep.
At the start, we take Wraith Band, because we have a little damage of ours attacks. Then buy Aquila to spam skills on cooldown. If you feel bad on line then take Morbid Mask and go into the forest. See also the choice between PT and Phase Boots, the second will be better. Drums can be assembled again, if everything is bad and early BKB is not in sight.

Tips for Ranked Games

Dota 2 tips

We continue our rubrick, dedicated to heroes with whom you can easly raise your MMR. Before we started, read previous parts of the guideBasics, Storm Spirit, TA / Slark, Jugger / Troll / Lina. Remember that you can raise the MMR on any heroes. The question is on whom you’ll do it faster.

But today we’ll talk about some other things. Let’s start!

Attention! First of all, this review is relevant for players with a low rating (~ 4000 MMR).

General information

Dota 2
In the previous parts of the guide we have described some points and tips for Ranked games. We introduce minor amendments.

  • Seen on the ranking of 1000 – 3000: teammates asked Mid line player to gank them up almost from the first minute. Ignore such tem mates. You have the task – farm core artifacts. Gang only when possible, for example if you have a good rune or you already have Ultimate or desired artifact.
  • Try to convince your team supports to pool you with 2 tango, if you go to the Mid lane. Typically, 4 tango is necessary, and you will save money. Also ask the team to take the rune in the first minute. Early bottle allow faster start your domination on the line.
  • If you play Carry, you do not need to do what almost all teammates do – stand in one place waiting for a fight. At this time, you can farm line / forest or push towers, and when fight begins you can use teleport to help your team mates.
  • News for Russian pubs – do not start with any dispute with them. Just Mute them and concentrate on the game.
  • Give up the idea that your Team has 4 idiots, and you only normal person.
  • Team fights errors: Look carefully due to you win or lose fights, take right target focus and dont start fights if you dont need it.
  • Remember that you take part in all Victories and Defeates. We usually dont notice what our team mates does right, but very quickly notice what they are doing wrong. Leave it – try to objectively assess their game.



Dota 2 beginners guide #4

Another 3 heroes for boosting!

You can look at 3 things infinitely: how fire burns, how water flows and how Doters tries to raise theirs solo-MMR.

But seriously, you can raise your rating with any hero. We have already described some of the characters in the previous parts ( part1 / part2 / part3 ) of the guide. Today we will examine three more, which, according to the author, you can effectively raise a solo-MMR.

Attention! First of all, this review is relevant for players with a low rating (~ 4000 MMR).

General information

As i said before, the best role for raising MMR – mid and carry. But! If you already have one, you should not take another. Take another role – it will increase your chances of winning.



Juggernaut carry

One of the best carry characters is perfect for raising MMR.

  • Strong in the early-game, very strong in mid-game and in Late-game
  • Built invulnerability to most spells (Blade Fury)
  • Has a great AoE heal
  • Easy to learn
  • Ultimate breaks invulnerability to magic
  • High attack speed


  • Small mana pool
  • Small HP pool


Juggernaut skills
Blade Fury allow to kill the enemy on the line and get the exp and gold.



Juggernaut items
Instead Healing Salve in the beginning take a Tango and the Wraith Band. If you find it hard to stand on line to buy Morbid Mask and go to the forest. Juggernaut anyway will farm his basic artifacts, especially at low raiting games. And always carry a scroll of teleportation. You can use it during Blade Fury, which will allow you to leave the battlefield virtually guaranteed.

 Troll Warlord

Troll warlord carry

It is unrealistic strong hero, which is pleasant to play. Be prepared to hear the phrase “Troll imbalanced!”. But cast away those thoughts and you’ll be glad to see once again 25 points at the end of the match.

  • Very high attack speed
  • Well worth a mid and easy line
  • Good attack animation in melee and in ranged mode.
  • With Morbid Mask can kill Roshan solo by Battle Trance
  • Has a low mana cost and low cooldown on spells
  • Whirling Axes in melee mode does decent damage around him and forcing opponents to miss for 7 (!) Seconds


  • Vulnerable to the control before the BKB
  • Beginners need a bit of experience for this hero to cleverly switch between modes and not to be confused
  • Suffice questionable flaws, but not just Troll is one of the most powerful characters in the current Mete.


Troll warlords skills


Troll warlords items




Also you can safely take the red beast and charge Laguna Blade in their faces. Strong hero at all stages, and closer to Late game she can produce good damage with her autoattacks.


  • Strong burst damage
  • AoE stun
  • A good ganking potential
  • With the dagger has a good split-push potential,
  • in late-game has a good attack speed
  • Good ranged attacks


  • Not the easiest character to learn
  • Very expensive spells
  • Vulnerability to the Ganges, as it does not have escape
  • Poor animation of Attack


Lina skills


Lina items
As you can understand, the best role for Lina, if you’re going to raise a solo MMR, – MID, so the first thing is obviosly – purchase Bottle. If you are experiencing difficulties with the timing with Eul, then it can be ignored, but we do not recommend it – you will lost a huge potential.


Dota 2 beginners guide #3

Best Solo MMR Heroes

In our previous post (here and here) we covered the basics of the game, and also examined such a hero as the Storm Spirit.
In this article, we will focus on the characters like Templar Assassin and Slark that are perfect for raising solo Match Making Rating.

Lets Start:

Templar Assassin

Templar Assassina

  • Good harass the enemy through passives with proper positioning
  • Refraction gives a lot of damage, and excellent survival
  • Very strong in the 1v1 fights at all stages of the game
  • Ultimate gives you a small passive overview


  • Small attack range
  • Low amount of health and mana at the beginning
  • The average split-push capability. It becomes better after purchase Dagger.

Early Game

For the early game our BIS items is Phase boots and a Bottle.
Phase Boots give us mobility, if necessary, as well as a nice bonus damage.
And we need a bottle as the Templar Assassin is very mana dependent.

Late game

Core Items: Dagger and Desolator

Dagger will give us a much needed mobility to our character and Desolator coupled with our second skill allow us to deal incredible damage per 1 shot.




  • Strong in all phases of the game
  • A good split-push potential
  • Very easy to master
  • It can go as the Middle, and on the top / bot
  • Perfect for a solo boost MMR


  • Skill and builds an item depends on the situation


The bottle is our main instrument for almost the entire game. Since we are highly mobile, we must grasp every rune spawn.
Power Treads – Best item at begining becouse it gives us attack speed and we can, if necessary, obtain additional HP pool.


Core items for Slark is Dagger (Shadow blade) and Abbissal blade.
Choose between Dagger and Shadow Blade depends on your skill, but it is recommended to take Dagger as the Shadow Blade is detected by wards and dust.
Abbisal blade the ideal weapon. It will allow us to make a number of strokes, thus we weaken an opponent and strengthen ourself.


LoL boosting review

League of Legends Boosting


LoL ranks picture

League of Legends is one of the most popular online games at the moment. It is a MOBA which is played by more than 20 million people around the world. It has many modes such as blind pick, draft pick, all random and 3v3, but the most played one is ranked draft. In this mode, there are 10 players, 5 on each team, which play a draft pick game. The winners win League Points, while the losing team loses League Points. These points determine the ranking of a player.

The ranks are: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master and Challenger. Besides Master and Challenger, these tiers have 5 divisions each. Once a player gets 100 points, they play a series of games which determine if they advance to the next division.

Most players are in the Silver tier, while the least are in Challenger. Challenger is a special tier, holding only 250 players at the same time. The lowest ranked players in that tier are changed for the highest ranked players in the Master tier every few days.

LoL Boosting

LoL ranks

Boosting is a service, a paid service usually, and it means artificially increasing an account’s ranking by having a more experienced player join the matches. There are quite a few types of boosting such as division boosting, duo boosting and “per-win” boosting.

  • Division boosting means that the customer gives their account to a booster so that they can win matches until they reach the division desired by the buyer. This method is best used when the customer has bad MMR and their League Point gain is low.
  • When duo boosting, the owner of the account plays on their own account while the booster plays on an account which is close to the rank of the customer. This way, the customer can learn from playing with the booster, while their mistakes don’t mean too much as the booster is able to carry the game easily. The goal is similar to a division boosting’s goal: the customer picks their desired position and they play with the booster until they reach that goal.
  • “Per-win” boosting means that the customer pays for a number of matches to be won. This method is great when the customer has good MMR and their League Point gain is good; 19+ LP per game.

How to avoid boosting risks

Of course, sharing accounts is against Riot’s Terms of Service, which is why duo boosting is the safest method to boost your ranking as you don’t have to share your account with anyone, you just play with someone.

To reduce the risk of being found, you can use additional options such as choosing your frequently played champions so that the booster can use them, choose the key binds of your summoner spells or even pick a booster that’s geographically close to your position.

Dota 2 beginners guide #2

Which Hero is better to raise a solo-rating? This question is asked by many players. In this guide, we do not reveal the secret of the guaranteed solo MMR growth. But we try to bring to you the basics and show the characters, which, in our opinion, will raise your solo MMR.


  • Always choose Mid or Hard Carrie
  • Do not rely on the support team
  • Take the heroes who can turn the game in solo
  • When you choose Mid hero be polite and explain that you take him for the reason. If your argument was rejected take Hard carry. DO NOT TAKE 2 MID HEROES.

  • Do not pay attention to the allies. Remember your goal – is a victory.


Storm Spirit
