This article will be devoted to such a topic as VHS in Dota 2, or more precisely, how to get it.
What is VHS in Dota 2
There are only three skill levels in this famous game – Normal Skill (NS), High Skill (HS), and Very High Skill (VHS). All of them display a hidden rating, which appears for every gamer after the first match played by him.
How to improve skill in Dota 2
Many players who are thinking about improving their Dota 2 skills still believe that their rating is influenced only by the KDA and the damage done. But it is not so. In the case of skill levels, the situation is similar. They are influenced by Dota 2 fantasy points, which are given after each match for the following achievements:
- – the dealt damage;
- – last hits / denies;
- – KDA;
- – duration of the stun;
- – GPM / XPM;
- – damage dealt with Roshan’s HP;
- – healing amount;
- – the number removed and placed wards.
To find out your Fantasy Points, you need to download a replay of your own match and select the appropriate section.
How to get VHS in Dota 2
This is all you need to know to work on obtaining VHS effectively: the more fantasy points a player receives, the sooner they will be assigned the appropriate level. Most of the points are given for Roshan and the destruction of towers. Therefore, it may make sense to focus on the proper items and heroes to perform this function best. So it would be best if you tried to kill more and die less often, not forgetting to hit Roshan’s every respawn. It is also essential to understand that after receiving the VHS, to retain it, the Dota player will need victories, victories, and more victories in the future. Otherwise, the exceptionally high skill level obtained with such difficulty may be lost.
This is the value of the sum of assists and personal kills divided by the number of character deaths.
A certain number of fantasy points are given for certain actions:
– kill: +0.3;
– death: -0.3;
– last hit / deny: +0.002;
– assist: +0.15;
– stun: +0.07;
– GPM / XPM: +0.003;
– Roshan and towers: +1;
– 1000 HP heal: +0.4;
– wards: +0.1.
As a rule, these are not the simplest heroes, but with them, the player will definitely get the coveted VHS Dota 2. These include:
Broodmother, Meepo, Zeus, Tinker, Visage, Spectre.
Among the support heroes, the best in this regard are:
Tusk, Earth Shaker, Ogre Magi, Tiny, Trent Protector, Nyx Assassin.
Today Dota 2 has no function to view hidden ratings. But this can be done using additional programs, for example, on Dotabuff. In it, under each of your own matches, you can see a postscript in the face of that very skill bracket.
In addition, the MMR table indirectly informs about the ranks in the HS. When MMR up to 3000 is equivalent to the hidden level 1 rating – Normal. High Skill rating is given for 3000–3800 points and Very High Skill Dota 2 – for more than 3800 MMR points.
