10 Secrets To Quickly Increasing Your DotA 2 Solo MMR
There are no shortcuts.

3. Pick Counter Heroes

It may sound cheap, but it works. Play enough Dota and you'll start to see that most characters have a counter of some sort. Do they have a Slark? Pick Bloodseeker. They have some magic-wielding freak playing mid? Pick viper. Did they pick Phantom Assassin? Try Razor.  

The list goes on and on, and there are plenty of resources out there on the internet to help you along the way. The point is, don't go into an MMR match with some preconceived notion of who you're going to pick. Watch any professional Dota 2 match, and a large portion of the match is dedicated to the hero selection segment. It's like a mini-game in its own right.  

Truth be told, matches can be won or lost in this stage—so pick wisely.
