Honestly, having one has really changed my attitude towards the game. I have my srs account where I practice the role I play for my team, play heroes I am very good with and just generally try as hard as possible to play well. I've got a good win ratio there, and it keeps me bouncing nicely between the two upper pools.

But I've also got an account for fun. I use it to play AR, with friends (this was why I made a fun account tbh, got sick of playing support for friends who could literally only farm like 300 gpm as Lycan/AM/Sylla) and just for general fun shenanigans.

It has 2 massive benefits. First off, I don't have to play in the normal pool. I play 50-60% of my games with at least 1 relatively bad friend. Previously, that was enough to drag me back into normal a lot, which ended up with bad quality games. High is hardly perfect, but I find it to be rare for people to flame me for suggesting lane comps/not having farm as a hard support etc, there.

Secondly, it's such a mental relief. Being able to separate between serious and fun is amazing. It means that I don't have friends whining that I've picked BS, or that I'm using a cheesy strat (having said that, according to one friend, using euls into sunstrike= cheese...)

IDK why more people don't do it. It's not as if everyone doesn't have a billion invites and it really does have benefits.

I prefer to just ignore my match history and play however I feel like.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

to each his own. I play Dota 1 as of now because it's more complete, although many quitters.

I tried this but seeing as I played a good 60% of my games in a funny way, when I came to playing seriously, I was paired up with...less than stellar teammates and opponents.

I have one, except I use them kind of backwards. Let me explain what I mean by that: I use my main to troll/try stuff out/in general have fun, and then I use my alt as my 'tryhard' account. Needless to say, the result of this, is that I don't get much exp. @main since I mostly stay in Low priority... not to mention like 33% win rate lol, and the fact that I rarely play it.

Combine the 2nd and 3rd guy and you have my statement.
...that's just ridiculous; no-one beats Sub-Zero.
