  • [Suggestion] Satisfy visible ELO pros and cons

    My super simple solution to the problem between the "pro visible ELO guys" and the "con visible Elo guys" is rather simple, but may increase the queue time a little bit.

    Simply split the Queue into 2 parts. One where your and everyone elses ELO is visible and one where it is not. Why not "remove" the ELO from the last queue? MM needs ELO to match players against each other based on skill.

    I call these the MM-Casual and MM-Ranked Queues.

    Those who don't want their ELO be seen simply play on MM-Casual and your good to go and free from any visible ELO. You will never know how bad or good you are but can play for fun.

    Those who want their ELO be seen simply play on MM-Ranked and be happy with your e-peen or not if you realize you suck and are therefore matched with the "noobs".

    I don't know if these 2 Queues should have separate ELO ratings or not, it is up to discussion. Let the rage begin.
    Give me my old Traxex back, the one with ice-cold eyes and face paint!

    Why do carries get all credit for winning a game where he goes 30 min afk farming while the rest is defending everything?

      They are already ranked. We just don't get any Information on where we are ranked.

            Don't the people you play with are the dead giveaway ? You can even roughly estimate someones skill level in minutes. I never could stand hiding information and almost totally obvious like showing you a color but not writing on it which color it is, and those epeen guys are already here, with the system of they are God everybody else is below average and if play perfectly all game long then they are average and if they make a mistake they are trash and you should continue to stroke yo pnis on them all game long.

            But sure ill vote +1 to self deluding, i find it hilarious when they complain about in on the forum.

                For you pub means = BAD

                For me it mean some mm algorithm looks for games from my first match to my 10000. one and say these games are balanced and fun, i rather not have a drama of a forcing a 5 man group or even looking for tryhard every place i can and over the long run, pub would actually mean trash because every half decent player left, and i understand why you refer to it such but it does not have to be like that.

                    for me a pub is a pub. Its not worth taking seriously. Especially not an AP pub.

                    play IXDL, play CM, get some people and make a team in TMM, ANYTHING but trying to take AP PUBS SERIOUSLY

                      honestly while I agree that taking AP pubs seriously is dumb I'd like a ranked queue just so I won't have to deal with the fuckers that take AP pubs seriously

                        Many people take ap pubs serious. Thats why there are tons of raging threads here saying they got matched with noobs. I just want to compare my e-peen with my friends though so i want my and their ELO visible..

                          You think AP pubs are worthless?

                          There was a certain player a while ago,who played AP pubs and Lone Druid excessively....He is in one of the best Dota 2 teams in the world right now.You might know his name,"AdmiralBulldog".

                          Dendi met him in an AP PUB,and he offered him to play as a Stand-in for Navi.Then he got famous and got picked up by NTH.

                          Also,Eternal Envy played a lot of pubs before he got into the pro scene as well.He played in No Tidehunter,now he is the captain of Kaipi.

                          So yeah,you see,AP pubs do count for SOMETHING.

                            they didn't need a rating.

                              I merely said AP pubs aren't worthless.
