        Funny Dota 2 actually had a tutorial mode when the beta released (around August 2011, no idea until what date, brother was already playing it back then so I know), but the game only had like 50 players at one time on-line so no one really knows that. But back then only beta testers, casters and pro players had access to the beta so no one cared. Since then it got removed, and now with a lot of new players it's still missing (unless I'm missing something lol).

        Also why the name changes, as well as the force staff change.

        And indeed valve, please PLEASE hurry with AR mode. I play Dota for so long already, just want to play pubs with random heroes for fun with people who actually know how to play the game with any hero. The guy who made that comment about 'losing just because of the picks' obviously hasn't played / seen 7000 games of DotA (I'm not saying that's a bad thing). People who know how to play any hero at quite a high skill level do exist fyi, and no, not in bot matches with most of the people here it seems. But it's just a great fun to play mode, who cares if I win or lose. Getting counter picked by stackers when your team randoms (nearly) every hero is just plain boring. Also I don't know about other players but the games I play in MM, about half of the players random their heroes anyway, so I'm clearly not the only one who wants that mode.

          yeah pretty much like 90 proc. of my solo que games i random. i only pick if i play with friends. because playing with random heroes againts stacks with your own stack is boring stomp - unless you get extremely lucky with your randoms

            pathing bug is pretty improtant
            It is a major bug that needs to be fixed..
            But I think it's one complex son of a bug

            • Every patch where they forget to add a minimap to the pick screen is a failure, we don't need heroes.

              • I do not really get why you added such a new (and imo stupid) gamemode to matchmaking before enabling -ar or importing good modes. What I miss is -captainsdraft and -voterandom. (and new visuals for -rd)

                Even tho I appreciate new modes I do not see the point for me to play "leastplayed". I dont play certain heroes because they are just boring or dont fit in. It is not that I dont play them because I cant. So I really dont see the learning factor by this mode (atleast for me as a Dota 1 veteran).

                • - More terrible renames. (if it's blizzard go and copyright all of your hero names already. You guys are a billion dollar company.)

                  - Hero picker still sucks in the hardest of ways. (no I haven't forgotten how bad it is. I still can't believe it continues to be this awful for all this time.)

                  - Tons of severe bugs yet to be fixed.

                  - Medusa still looks horrible, and split shot is hardly even noticeable when it's active.

                  - Several old heroes still missing rival lines.

                  But on the upside, more bot changes!

                  You guys should find out everything that blizzard has used but not copyrighted, then go copyright that. For great justice

                  • I give up, valve cant make a good game.

                    Well atleast thanks for making it good initially, but keep messing it up, intentional or not -lp might be interesting but its useless, i've wanted -ar since the start, or atleast some easy access lobby so i can actually play it without having to spam on irc all day.

                    GG valve, thx for destroying the only 2 games that i've actually liked.

                    • AR produces more almost-over-by-picks matches than any other mode does, so I think this is the reason why it is not in MM.
                      I agree. I would play and likely enjoy AR in Dota 2, but I think I will enjoy LP mode even more.
                      The idea that your team can still try and pick a balanced lineup (or at least 'pub' balanced), and that one team won't get lucky and random <flavour of the month here, ie. drow + centaur for example>. Less people may consider the game over before it started.

                      It also gives me a chance to play and improve on my least played stuff - an idea I really like - in a match where others are hopefully on similar footing.

                      Overall I think LP is valve striving for balanced, enjoyable gameplay. AP is good for low stress because you can remove a lot of the responsibility for losses, poor performances or poor teamplay. LP may function a little differently.

                      • I have an urge to only play on LP now, until eventually I get 'even'(by amount of games played) on all heroes.



                        Most likely won't do it though.
