About

Hi I'm NOGAMES and as of the moment of this writing I only have 3414 solo MMR in DOTA 2. I have played this game for many years, and it is my favorite video game however I am currently unable to climb the ladder on my own to 4k and beyond. However, I feel that I have not yet reached the peak of my skill. I feel that together with a professional coach, I will be able to reach 4k MMR and perhaps even go beyond!I love DOTA 2 cosmetics and feel I have really good tastes in hats, I've been told by my buddy Beesa who has 7004 solo queue MMR that I have 10k hat MMR.

To give you some background on my DOTA experience I started playing DOTA back in highschool with my friends at the LAN cafe/arcade around 2007. I didn't take DOTA seriously until DOTA 2 where the competitive nature of the game really drew me in. I've played since early on in the Beta and have loved playing both casually and a bit seriously. I was very fortunate to attend TI4 by a stroke of luck and I met my idol Black^.

Currently I play a lot of solo ranked games and try to get good with mostly position 4/5 heroes. I feel that the NA players lack in support skill and I want  to do my part to change that while climbing over the huge 3.5-4k hurdle. I feel that with a professional coach to correct my errors, offer sound advice, and to support me I will be able to reach my goal of 4k MMR. I currently am in talks with a professional coach for all-inclusive coaching to 4k MMR for the sum of $300. Some of the coaching and ranked games will be streamed on my Twitch.

~STRETCH GOALS~

Ok so what good is a project without some room to grow? Additional money will be used to fund my climb such as energy drinks, food, better coaching etc.

Stretch goal 1 - $500 Pledged: I will livestream ALL of my ranked games in my climb to 4k MMR for everyone to watch on http://www.twitch.tv/kusogames

Stretch goal 2 - $1,000 Pledged: I will add a webcam to my stream so you can see the struggle in my face as I climb to 4k+ MMR. The webcam will be on for most of my ranked games.

Stretch goal 3 - $2,000 Pledged: I will log my post-game reflections on each ranked game I play climbing to 4k+ MMR and blog about it on a to be determined website.

Stretch goal 4 - $5,000 Pledged: I will buy a ticket to TI5 and post updates on my Twitter  https://twitter.com/DrNOGAMES about my experiences.

Stretch goal 5 - $15,000 Pledged: I will visit Japan and learn to properly wield a katana like my favorite DOTA character, Juggernaut. Updates will be posted on Twitter.

Stretch goal 6 - $20,000 Pledged: I will commission a Juggernaut set for DOTA 2 with my tastes in mind.

Risks and challenges

Of course, this project is not without its risks. Ranked solo queue is a volatile place ESPECIALLY at 3.4k. There is always the risk of intentional feeders, disconnects, Valve servers claiming the match will not count for or against MMR gain. Although there may be some MMR gains, inevitably there will also be some MMR losses. I hope to mitigate losses by powering through my ranked games with the help of my hired coach to win more than I lose.
