DOTA 2 is arguably the most difficult multiplayer game to not only master but also to simply learn. Apart from the countless heroes and infinite combinations, the game features some extremely tricky mechanics that need a lot of time to learn.

Having said that, climbing the leaderboards of ranked DOTA 2 games is one of the most difficult challenges faced by most gamers. Be it a Guardian-ranked new player or a seasoned veteran from the Divine bracket, grinding through pubs for that all-elusive Immortal medal is every DOTA player's primary goal.
