    Why do other people get items when...

    Why do players get items when

    they feed, (and get rare items)
    they do not communicate, (get uncommon item)
    doesnt help team - jungling whole game, (get 2x item)

    how does the loot work?

    but when me or other people have good k/d and gameplay, we get none.

    I'm reasonably sure that items work like TF2, i.e. your play has no connection with what drops. If I read the dev blog right, drops are sort of random, plus you get a bunch of them when your battle level goes up.

    i see. but i think they should change it...
    people just idle (moves around so they dont get afk abandon)
    they need to change this (not random) but performance because its frustrating... they get rare items when they feed/troll/idle

    if there is a Dota God... then he/she hates me.

    Report the feeders and trolls and move on. There's not much Valve can do as far as I know.

    It's a problem with TF2 as well - people join games and sit to farm items.

    All we can do is hope Valve keeps up with reports and punishes afk'ers swiftly.

    I think DOTA is a much competitive game than tf2, u can easily tell who's doing right or not, the should change this, but i can't think a way to do it, so i guess for now it's ok :/

    I think Dota cannot be do judging because
    1.They (the wrong accused person)maybe sometimes do it right,but the team do wrong so its look like he do wrong
    2.KDA cannot be a judge, some hero have a very low survival priority(clock,venge,treant), and if Dota 2 do judgement like this,there will be no support hero picked, and VIPER,DROW,BARA EVERYWHERE
    3.The one who jungle and didn't go to team war must have some farm (like medusa and spectre) they will do less damage and 90% die in war befor they farm effectively.
    So, this random ways might be the best way for now.
    sorry if bad english

    +1 to hyruma.

    look at the number of bara games there are in the past month on dotabuff.com. it's a lost cause for players who just wanna pub-stomp. games like these are the games that make you really wanna never play support ever. suddenly you get charged + 1 ulti, youre dead. IMO, bara 's ult should get nerfed. he's even harder to kill than heroes like pl and antimage who have really good escape mechanisms - due to his initial str and str gain (initial str 29 +2.xx per lvl ).

    if so, adding this system would deteriorate the system completely, where supports wont get items AT ALL due to the lack of killing abilities they might have , so on so forth..

    It's completely random and it should stay that way.
    The only people who should not get items are leavers.
