  • Why people are complaning so much about the mute system?

    Yes I have no idea. I think it's fine the way it's. No one should be obligated to listen to anyone.

    Do know if my opinion counts, it's rare for me to say something in a game, since I play for fun. Winning is good, but well, I have more important things to worry about, and harrasing people is not something that I like.

    Is nice to have a good comunication on the team but I'm sure that 95% or more people that are muted, are because they are trolling on the micro or insulting someone.

    I'll be honest with you, don't get mad at me, but these forums are not a good place to be for a brazilian in favor of the mute system. Haters and xenophobes gather here to pat themselves on the back.

      1. Abuseable as fuck.
      2. We already have a mute button.
      3. This is DotA. One person can screw the gaming experience of up to 9 other ppl.

          Because they are flamers that enjoy all kind of horrible things such as racism and don't want to be banned for their negative behaviour.

              Honestly I don't rly care about it, since brazilians love to fuck all games, it's not something new meet people who hates brazilians. I'm pround to live where I live and if someone needs to be ashamed of it, he probably should not deserve his own country. Brazil is a nice a place, not the best, but could be way worse =p

              Anyway:

              1 - What is abusable? Mute someone? Oo
              2 - Which other option do we have for muting?
              3 - Some one can screw the game for other 9 ppl, and he can do in so many ways...I think that if someone wants to screw a game, he will do it by other ways...

                People aren't anymore. You should've been here a month ago (June 12 - July 1) when Valve's genius employees rolled out a renewable report system along with a threshold of 2 reports / 2 games / 48 hours means you're "disruptive." The complaints became so common that Valve had to close General Feedback, rename it Tutorial Feedback under a bullshit excuse of "General Feedback was always supposed to be about the tutorial," and create the Community subforum.
                We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

                  To answer your question:
                  This is a so called "Development forum".
                  Such forums are prone to be swarmed by a vocal minority that complains about functions that the program/product/service has.
                  Don't be alarmed, this vocal minority isn't larger than 0.004% of the total community and can be safely ignored unless they exceed 7.5%.

                  I will use this quote to finish my answer:
                  Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain - and most fools do.

                    Vocal minority.

                    People who like the mute system (even if it is the majority) don't tend to come here and say good job.
                    But if some people dislike any system they will come here and be very vocal.

                    Humans like to complain.

                      Wow, so Valve reduced the number of reports per week from unlimited to 6 to 4 to 2 all just to please this vocal minority?

                      Please. The number of threads complaining about the automated mute system is a function of how abusable the current version of the automated mute system is. The threads really did die down when we went from 4 reports per week to 2. And then they exploded after the first version of the renewable report system was introduced. Now, they're mostly quiet.

                          Then explain all of the accounts supporting the mute system like it's something that will pave the way to heaven for them.

                            Simple. Some people don't come here to complain. They come here to help out and provide feedback.
                            The stupidity never ends:

                              Not a lot of people here support the mute system, GermanViet already explained why.

                              There's only like 11 people here that support the mute system.
