    Not true, but I would like a Match ID, to investigate what the player is complaining about.
    I've seen you do it literally dozens of times. Admittedly, once very accurately and to the great amusement of all, but generally it is quite unhelpful.

      Don't worry... at some point you will become stable enough in ELO that the game will give you the screwball with randoms that only have a single win under their belt.

      If the game itself (The Dota map, not the application including Valve's shitty systems around it) was bland or boring, I would have no issue with dismissively ditching the game knowing it was garbage. It deserves to be recognized that the only reason this game is sucking horribly right now is Valve's wishful but half-baked attempt at social reform (mute system) and the blatant disregard for balance by having ginormous experience/skill disparities in favor of quicker queue times. If it's not intentional, it's ineffective; simple as that. If it is intentional, that means this game has become a caterer to casuals-only when it comes to pubs. If putting a sliver of effort towards winning is taboo and we're really supposed to be playing in a sandbox we can freely poop in, there's other games out there that allow that without wasting an hour of time.

      Valve never really said what the game is about when it comes to pubs... but given their direction starting from just a few months ago they want this to become another Facebook app.

            lol at the morons in this thread. OP is lying. Made a new account just so he could troll. Either post the match id or don't bother posting. This game uses the same matchmaking algorithm as HoN. Once you fools realize this, you'll realize matchmaking is fine.

              Yeah dont worry. It will just make the game unfun for you and everyone else for only, like, say 1000 games. Not more though. It's ok, MM is working as intended.

                  I wish the internet was RL... I would punch you right in the jaw. MMS is a joke. A train wreck. Also, claiming that it uses the same as a game that is in the final stages of terminal cancer, is a poor call.

                    So true. This is what you "leave if you dont like valve" blockheads dont get.

                        To avoid LPQ:

                        Don't draw attention to yourself
                        Don't use voice or chat except for 'ss'
                        Mute all at lvl 1
                        Only play in parties
                        Get alternate accounts
                        Limit your usage to one or two games per day per account
                        Don't play too well
                        Don't play on Sunday or Monday
                        Wait until the developers reset LPQ status

                        If you're getting matched with trolls or feeders:

                        You may have been placed in a hidden pool. There is no known way out of this, apart from moving to a different account.

                              Once you'll wrap your head around the fact that HoN is not only very much alive and well but has some pretty good sides to it too, it will all make much more sense.

                                Everytime I login to play HoN, I see the player counter at the left-top side of the client, and it never exceeds 150000 players, MAYBE sometimes 200000ish. HoN is practically on life support right now.
