  • Community improvement Dota 2

    At the moment the biggest issue I find is pretty mixed, as for me I think the game is fine with minor tweaks, as for matchmaking I like to think that new players add a challenge for me, One thing many people don't seem to talk about on how to improve player experience, rather than expect another teammate to perform his best, Guide him/her and best of all have fun, It is not hard to find some high skilled players like yourself and group up and play some competitive matches, I think mostly the issue here is people can't think for themselves and rather than being put in a situation where they decide to improve the community as a whole, they are lost with no direction.

    I stopped complaining about the community a long time ago and began to improve my gaming experience by actually being nice to other gamers and guiding them, Many times someone who rages I learned to calm them down and honestly many have even settled down and said "I am sorry I don't know why i get so angry sometimes" I perfectly understand its a very competitive game once you are playing at a higher level, we seek a higher gaming experience, but rather than be selfish and focus on yourself, help the community improve and you will have those amazing high level players, without the bad community, its this kind of thinking that is involved with the game and thats why you get so many mixed reviews or point of views of the game.

    I play the game to improve other gamers now as well as myself, I make my contribution but by no means I stop because everyone else rages, One player at a time for me, I even get a ton of commends and I feel good at the end because When i help other gamers play I have about a 80-90% win chance, Without me saying a word or lack of communication that win scale for the match will be anywhere from 30-40% sometimes less depending on skill level of team overall. This is the type of game that back then drove serious communities and people went to great lengths to be able to game for the hardcore. Now that we have ANYONE can play, we need to change how we view these kinds of games and improve the community as a whole. unfortunately games like Call of duty don't teach these values, as its not very team based as this game. You should understand what I mean by this.
