One of Dota 2's most prominent streamers, Gorgc, shared some insights on how to improve in Dota 2.
He attributed the improvement to hours of gameplay and a mindset to improve step-by-step.

In a recent Twitch livestream that resonated with Dota 2 players and enthusiasts, Dota 2 streamer and personality Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovsk shared some wisdom on how to improve in Dota 2. As a semi-professional player, Gorgc’s advice could help many struggling individuals get out of the low MMR trenches and become better at Dota 2. In his stream, he shared two factors that play a major role in improving gameplay: Grinding more games and having a positive mindset.

Gorgc Says Mindset is the Biggest Factor to Improve in Dota 2

During one of his daily Twitch streams, Gorgc answered a question on how to improve in Dota 2 that was posed by his viewer. At first, he said, “You gotta play a lot, you gotta remember that a lot of players have like 10 thousand hours more than you or more, so don’t feel too bad if you’re not great.

Then, the streamer talked about players’ mindsets and looking for small, minor things to improve upon. He said, “Mindest. You gotta improve a little bit every time. Find something to improve on, like the laning phase or whatever. Think about it every game, and then all you need to do is improve slightly faster than whatever tilted goons you have in your bracket. I don’t know fu**ing know where you play in exactly. If you’re improving faster, you’ll eventually win. As long as you have a better mindset than they have, you’re doing good. You’re already winning.

To his credit, Gorgc plays in the 9K-10K average MMR bracket and peaked at 10K MMR last year. He has some close ties with professional Dota 2 players like Neta "33" Shapira of Team Liquid and Yazied "YapzOr" Jaradat of Team Secret amongst many others. He is arguably one of the top English-speaking Dota 2 streamers. 

On a side note, if you are looking to improve your gameplay, one known proven way is watching replays of your games and analyzing them. You can do so by checking for ward locations and the strategies that other teams use. This method is widely used by almost all the professional Dota 2 teams to aid in their preparation for any upcoming matches.

Dota 2 YouTubers like Brian "BSJ" Canavan and Andrew "Jenkins" Jenkins create guides for the community that can be used to educate oneself and be a better Dota player. A few months back, Gaimin Gladiators’ Quinn "Quinn" Callahan also gave a few tips and unfiltered insights designed to empower low MMR players and help them improve upon their ranks in Dota 2. Some of his tips included not piling on teammates and not attempting to seize the enemy high ground unless they are all dead.
