Suggestion Dear Valve, please stop filling Dota Plus with crappy old sets

1.1k Upvotes

Feels weird that this even has to be said. There are so many amazing new sets each year that are not making in into the game simply because other great sets have already taken their place, and here we are every couple of months with another Dota Plus treasure featuring cosmetics that are made out of two pixels. For the love of Gaben, let us enjoy the good sets before they too reach the expiration date.

Complaint Why is the report system so bad in terms of the moments you are allowed to submit each type of report?

665 Upvotes

There are so many things that are awful and make no sense, I'll just list a few (and yes, I know many people are aware of this, but it would be good to get some visibility so maybe Valve can change it)

  • "Did not play selected role" is only available at the very start of the game – this basically makes it so I never use it, because I don't report people for unconventional picks. If the dude picks support sniper and plays a great support sniper, then that's completely fine. But if they steal farm, go carry items, and buy zero support items, then it should be reportable, but it's too late at this point.
  • Can't report people for griefing or feeding after the game, only during the game – this is stupid on so many levels, why wouldn't you allow a report for griefing after the game? I don't like stopping mid game to report people, so often I just forget to do it and want to do it after the game, but can't since the only options are communication and MM abuse/smurfing.
  • Can't report opponents for griefing/feeding – I don't see why this isn't allowed, people might say it would get abused but I don't see why it would be more abused than reporting teammates. People usually flame teammates way more than they flame opponents. There are situations where an opponent is clearly feeding or griefing and it sucks not being able to report them.

Discussion Willing to wait 20-25+ mins for 10k behv score only matches

157 Upvotes

just like there is an option for "strict solo matchmaking", give us an option for "10k behaviour score match making".

My recent games have been pure misery, I mean people giving up before the game even started. Affecting everybody's mentality in a negative way, I usually insta mute people like these, but they are still griefing the other 3 people with their voice comms.

I felt bad but I had to tell a guy. "Dude you really talk alot and non of that is usefull. if you don't have anything positive or important to the game to syay then please don't talk". I felt bad inside that I had to tell that to a grown man. I apologize to the guy for being harsh but that is the truth.

I had a guy who cried over our another guy's pick before the game started, I kept telling him "dude, calm down. Just play, you are affecting everyone's mood".

I am 100% sure that if you bring negativity into the game from the start, it will effect everyone's mentality. The past is the past, people need to focus on actually trying to salvage a bad draft or a bad laning stage instead of whining and making everyone miserable till the end of the game.

People can't focus if you are consonantly crying over a pick or something.


There is no way people like that have high behaviour scores, I pretty sure I am getting queued up with people with 7-8k behv scores or they need to make the point system harsher.

Complaint Why hitting immortal is the worst thing that can ever happen.

28 Upvotes

I have been immortal for about a year and a half and that year and a half has been my worst time ever on dota, Its crazy how many people i new that were immortal and stopped playing and now i am 1 of them, I took a 3 month break came back and its just worse than ever,

Firstly once you hit immortal, its soloq from now on, for some its no change for other like myself who just played dota with his friends it sucks, Im not saying i am immortal and should be ancient, my skill is at immortal peeking 6.5k before my break, but since immortal is only soloq and partyq is the 5 stack russian boosters its very hard to have fun games, Infact fun is just completly removed it now becomes this super tryhard, you fuck up once you lose type of game. I love party , dota is a team game and if you want to improve individual skill solo might be better but working as a team as far better than individual skill and just having fun at the end, knowing that you can rely on your friends is also a great comfort, but with soloq its just you make 30 mins of space for your carry who then dies once blames pos 5 and deletes his items, and ofc no punishment.

Coming onto my next point is that the quality is just soo poor, in 100% of games there is 3-5 account buyers smurfs or boosters, and its at the point where its just who gets the best smurf mid wins. The whole point of team play is almost completly removed since most games end with 1 teams core giving up resulting in a quick end. Also with the account buyers it is the most annoying thing, having a legend players in your lane or your core who thinks that he is a 6kmmr player and that he gets bad team mates at his rank so they buy an account, completly ruin games and never get banned, it takes literly 5 seconds to see from their ingame performance to see that they bought account. Following onto this point it is very annoying when legit players such as myself work hard for mmr and then for smurfs or account buyers just to give up so easily, for them they dont care, but for sombody such as myself who works 9 hours a day and just want a fair game , win or loss as long as its fair and people are trying im happy, its when they just instantly give up and you can't do anything but lose 30mmr.

My next point is the fact that it is hard to motivate yourself to play,when you are in the medals you can set targets like i just need (x) wins to hit archon or something, while in immortal its just play,play,play and the legit only goal to set is hit rank 1, which is about 12000mmr nowadays which is double my current mmr and your mmr soons just becomes meaningless, the days of yes i finally hit 4k mmr or something is just never hear, its just oh im rank 4k again now im rank 3k and it makes no difference. I used to watch ReshyD all the time on twitch(before his ban) But it was the only way to motivate myself, having sombody about the same skill and i would love going againsts or being on his team trying to get better than him, but he also lost motivation and quit and its just sad that they never update game quality that it just gets worse and worse, and i sit their at the main menu just not wanting to play because its just boring at this point.

Overall if your not immortal cherish your rank, dont think hitting immortal will be amazing and you will go pro and play at next ti, reality is you wont maybe if you play 15 hours a day for the next 3 years, and if so go for it! But it only takes a few small things and they can fix immortal matchmaking, such as: 1. make 2 types of ranked games where 1 is for players over level 100 only(since most legit immortal players are level 120+) and the other mode for under 100, which will be filled with smurfs and account buyers. Another thing they can do like csgo is make it so if you 5 stack all ranks can play together(maybe make so that each team must have the same amount of immortals so its not a stomp.) and finally they should make divisions in immortal or something, I think only the top 1000, or 100 should have ranks and instead you have like immortal 1,2,3 and then numbers, just something to aim for since the number doesent do anything but give people a reason to blame you with the good old your un numbered or fucking 4k/3k even if they are legit 1 win more than you.

Please give some feedback on your thoughts if anyone reads this, if you one of those 8kmmr tinker spammers who just bullies lower ranks please dont bother writing here. I speak for a lot of people in this post and if you disagree please say why below or other ways you think they can improve matchmaking because immortal is a rank that people should aim for and it should be rewarding when you become it rather then game ruining, and its people like myself who get sick and tired of this shit day in day out who then go and smurf in the lower rank games and ruin your games, all the problems come from the top, fix the immortal problem and I garuantee a massive reduction of smurfs in lower ranks.
