So last night I played one game with my fellow duders, and it was the first time I have come away from the game with a negative feeling.
I am a n00b with around 22 games under by belt now. In all of those games I've felt that I have done myself a decent turn and helped as part of a team. Winning or losing still to me doesn't really matter, as I'm still learning, but last night it did.
As part of the Single Draft I got handed my first Drow Ranger. Now having been a support for 21 games I thought I'd give it my best go with one of the strongest heroes in the game.
Here was my chance to run a game with someone other than Tinker.
Maybe it was the other team ganging up on me. Maybe it was my just being an idiot.
But as I solo'd in the middle lane and tried to do as well as I could, I fed to Phantom Assassin across the pond from me and ended up stinking up the game.
So much so that I logged in early this morning before work to play a bot game with Drow to figure out just what went wrong.
So my question is this; have you ever came out of a game of DOTA dejected? Why? Was it your own fault? Was it someone moaning? What did you do to learn from it?
