    Does this mean I should start reporting people again or should I wait to do that? I've been on strike for a while, now.

    Considering the fact that your response to the call for no more unfairly grouped up parties in matchmaking didn't result in the logical scenario of ones against ones and two and three against two and three and five against five I highly doubt your parameters are going to be worth our effort of reporting any violations to you.

    I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

      Will this work as "great" as the language preferences do?

        Can you just make it so that if Peruvians queue on US East, they play with other Peruvians? Because if you did that, then I'd never dodge any game.
        We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

          I'm hoping that he means after hero selection...but even still I don't see the point of further forcing people to play unbalanced and unfair games. If not, I'm not looking forward to being forced to play with that Peruvian 4 stack that insta-picks sniper, bloodseeker, antimage, and night stalker that I could have left to avoid the painful 30+ mins wasted in that game.

              I have no problems playing against Peruvians. I just don't want to play with them. The only reason I dodge games is because I check the playerlist and see that I've previously manually muted someone. The vast majority of the players I've muted are Peruvians because I cannot tolerate their ping spam.

                    I'm a little concerned about the transparency of this. Last thing I'd want is to be on a "leavers/throwers" list without knowing it or any means to fix it. Once this change is implemented, will it be clearly communicated to the user like the low priority queue?

                    Also, how does this impact fragmentation of the player pool? If there is a strict segregation between players whose playstyles are considered negative, would that lead to longer wait times for everyone?

                        Glad to hear you working on solution that will help me find games with ppl that i want. I mark very bad ppl with mute buttons for my future games. Games im playing against them have around 75% winrate. But if they are in my team i dodge them. So will there be any solution for me to not being partyed with them at all ?

                        From what you type here, this would increase my enjoyment of the game by far and im sure that im not alone with this.

                          I never mentioned abandons in my post, feeders can still feed with 0 games abandoned.

                            I dodge all the time, I have friends who do it too. My reason for doing so is because of matching up with South Americans on my team. If I know from the get-go I am being placed with people who won't speak my language on the server I queue for why should I waste my time of 30-45 minutes on average to play with them? I have like half of USEast muted because of your guys' matchmaking, and now I get 'punished' for it eh?

                              Just keep dodging them. Soon you will be playing only with other dodgers.

                                Interesting change! I don't think people will learn anything from being thrown in such a queue but I'm glad that I won't have to deal with people that keep leaving before the game begins and throwing me back into another 3 minute queue just because they don't want to play with peruvians or whatever.
