Can you "pay" to play ranked?
so i recently decided to play DOTA instead of HON... and like everyone else I start at lv 1.. fine fine.. np... I level up rather quickly. It was okey I had to learn the new items, but the games a basicly the same. And I know what to do and buy on almost every DOTA hero.

But now i level up sooo slowly... the the skill level in the "play" matches are so random.... im not haveing any FUN... either I Totaly Curb stomp the other team og its impossible for me to carry my team...

I am no pro. But i know what im doing, (3 years of HON) and it pains me to see ppl do something as simple as Auto attack the waves for 10 minuts straight...

My point is......I feel NO joy WIN or LOSE playing with "bad/new" (no offence) players I am BORED... Do i have to play 70 more games to reach lv 13?

26 hours on dota... knows what to play on almost every dota hero... oookay...

just out of curiosity, what would you buy on a Slarder given the following circumstances:

- your team: Crystal Maiden, Nyx Assassin, Tinker, Slardar, Clinkz
- enemy team: Riki, Bloodseeker, Shadow Shaman, Lina, Huskar
- you are the mid player
- you got first blood on the huskar
- you have a bottle, a brown boots and a magic wand and you have 1000 gold
- you are on dire
- Riki Shadow Shaman is their offlane and you want to gank them with a DD as soon as you upgraded your brown boots
- Your safe lane is a CM Clinkz


so what would you buy, phase boots or power treads?

... but this is hardly the point ... "I am talking about playing with people that dosn't know the basics"

but since you ask.... IMHO which boots I buy wouldn't make or break the game. Both have their advantages and I could win or lose with BOTH

thats not an answer
I agree, this is hardly the point

I was just interested, since you know, you said you know what to build on almost every hero.

my answer is, that it dosn't matter which boots i buy.. This hero is names pestilence in HON. (many heroes are the same). And I normaly Go threads and Blink on that hero on a lane.. but maybe since its mid, I would go Phase so i could snatch me some runes easies...

BUT what is I have no rune Ward? and I guess wrong. what if I get ganked what if Huskar is really really good or really really bad?... the game has to many variables to make clear which boots would win me the game.

- you have a DD in your bottle
- huskar is bad (no way a slarder gets a FB on huskar unless he is bad)
- I would go for a treads

Not sure about gank but Power treads are overall better because Clinkz can disable Shaman first and you won't need to escape his wards

IT IS pointless since there is NO right answer... what is more pointless than that?!.

lol... come on man.. I also state that I am not a pro.. but you just had to point out the tiny bit were I puff up my chest slightly.... I did play a VERY similar game for almost 3 years.
I know which items to buy and not to buy... I am not the GOD of DOTA... and most of the time I would make the right choice of items, but anyone makes mistakes

You can't "pay to play" any part of DotA- 100% of the heroes are available from the start, but you need to put in the time to earn access to Ranked games. For the majority of people, this is a good thing, given DotA's long learning curve.

Unfortunately, if you read these forums a bit, you'll find there are a lot of people who complain about all the same problems in ranked matches. Because of the skill required and the design of the game, the variance in people's ability from one match to the next, and it can make it very difficult to lock down a player's overall skill level, especially when you are in the lower skill-ranked brackets.
