You can't support some people because they are too shit at game.

I don't know but I think blaming supports only happens in lower MMR. If you are in high MMR, you rarely ever see people flame support for feeding or being underleveled. They flame if you make a bad move or something, but that happens on any role. I also don't see full carry teams all that often in high MMR. People tend to pick after what is needed. If someone calls mid, very rarely someone else will pick a mid hero. If someone picks a carry for safe lane, very rarely will you see another carry being picked so it ends up being two carries on one lane.
It does not happen in high MMR. Just play yourself up from your lower MMR. It is not impossible. If you believe you belong in high MMR, you should have no trouble getting there to be honest.

If anything, Valve should make MMR ranking more visible, or at least tell people which bracket are they in (and when they are at it, add more bracket into the game instead of just normal/high/vh). I'm in high at the moment, and people still pick 3-4 carries.
Like in any game of this genre, most people link hard carries to instant glory. Game designers dont do anything to discourage that mentality so it only spreads. I myself never play carry, semi/gank like windrunner most of the time and sometime babysitter like Jakiro. But a support cant do much in a 4-carry match :\I like playing supports actually(I hate playing carry) but when you play support and your carry fails to farm, your team fails to gank or put some pressure to enemy team and when you die while trying to save your carry or in team fights, ending up 0/8 that's when they start to blame support for feeding. I'm going to say current player base is ultra-retard. Almost brainless. There is not fucking way I play support and get all the hatred for just playing missing role in the game.

Don't get me wrong, I don't consider tournament level play impressive and that's supposedly as good as it gets. Still, sometimes when you call someone bad and he says he wasn't trying he was telling the truth.
Just played support for a Drow Ranger who on my question why he doesnt stop autoattacking answered : "We have to get the tower". On lvl 2. He also got no lasthits what so ever, the enemy viper was at about 10 denies a few minutes in. Needles to say that it was my fault he got ganked although i warded our forest and could walk to the tower with all time of the world while he ignored my pings. That all with boots he bought from his starting gold.
While this was going on our russian 2nd carry a magnataur took lessons in tower diving. Of course he cant explain you what is wrong with him because in his little world all people speak russian. Thats it I am done with playing supports in pub matches.

If you're new, this is what happens - and you will have it on both sides. Learn to teach, instead of rage, and recognise your own shortcomings. After I recognised my own and playing to my strengths and filling in my teams weaknesses, I started crawling my way up the skill levels.
"creep is almost always under enemy tower" ? What? ... steal your farm as void? What?
You don't steal farm as void, you get farm. You are a hard carry. If they are getting the farm, and you are a hard carry also, and believe you should be getting it, ask yourself this question "Why don't I get it". It is because you clearly cannot last hit well enough, so let them farm, because they are better than you.
If the creep is under the enemy tower, then learn to deny, block, pull, and stop auto attacking.
And queue with a friend once in a while.
This game needs a "vote kick" feature.
Just had a game with a Doombringer whose only intention was to feed. First he ran to Roshan to get himself killed, then he ran in the lanes to get himself killed,... At the end of minute 7 he was 0-10-0, lvl 1 with no items. He did this feeding on purpose. And to make things worse the enemy team seemed to enjoy getting this farm and therefore pwning us all so they didnt really pushed. After 20 mins all tier 2 towers were still intact, we just killed stuff or feeded now to to avoid abandon. Enemy team still didnt want to end it. I took the abandon at the end, I have better things to do.

hes not stealing farm just making last hiting annoying as fuck trying to steal farm (and melee always have easy time vs ranged)
kinda hard to deny creeps on side lanes while you are sitting on mid ?If the creep is under the enemy tower, then learn to deny, block, pull, and stop auto attacking.
i play with friends almost exclusively, as i said above this does not happen if im playing on my main acc (and i play support unless im solo queueing)And queue with a friend once in a while.
