Dota 2 - How to bounce back when you failed ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!


Dota 2 is an awesome game that brings together millions of people from all over the world. Although it can bring you hours of joy, sometimes, you might be in situations where you just don't want to play anymore. In most cases, this can either due to toxic team-mates or because you've just failed in the game.

Playing Dota 2 when you're in the driving train is very easy because you can slowly but steadily suffocate your enemies. However, playing from behind can be one of the worst feelings in the world, especially when you're playing against certain heroes. 

Having said that, let's take a look at few tips that you can take advantage of, should you find yourself in a situation where you're just failing.

Don't Give Up

Even though it goes without saying, it's still worth mentioning it. One you give up, the game is pretty much over, regardless of the efforts from your team mates. 

Once you get more experience in Dota 2, you will start to realize that every single game is winnable, especially in the lower mmr brackets. People always do mistakes, so you just have to wait and take advatnage of it whenever it happens. 

Try to farm in the jungle

If you're not having a good time and you fail the laning stage, one of the best things that you can do is to farm the jungle. Even though it might be seen as a sign of weakness and you might get flamed by your team-mates, that's far from the trurth. It's way better to get some sort of farm rather than just going on your lane to die over and over again.

Alternatively, you can also try to stack a couple of camps and then get them at once. This can easily be done with some heroes, wheras with others - not so much. On the other hand, if you have good supports, they can do that for you. Needless to say, this happens very rare in pub games.

Ask for help

Although it might be embrassing (especially if you're playing mid), there is nothing wrong in asking someone for help. Sometimes, laning can be extremely difficult, especially against certain heroes such as Huskar. If that's the case, you won't be able to deal with him alone, which means that you can simply ask for help. Once your support comes and helps you, kill that annoying laner will be a lot easier.
