To preface this, I must say I am primarily an FPS player. I am simply just awful at Dota 2. I have about 400 hours on the game, and have been playing on and off over the past couple of years (the reason for this ill explain later)
I watch tutorials on the various heroes and follow build guides. I try to communicate using my mic the best I can in-game and genuinely try my best each game.
Now I know this game is super duper in-depth and complex, and I don't expect to be good at the game by now, or even soon in the future.
But I find it almost impossible to enjoy the game at this skill level. I get spam reported almost every game and end up in low priority within a week. I'll try for a couple of weeks to get out of low priority, I'll even play with my more experienced friends, yet getting out just seems impossible. I usually just give up after a few weeks and quit playing the game for a couple of months until I'm automatically taken out of low priority.
What can I do to avoid these spam reports? Is there any technique on getting out of low priority faster?
