    Because if they can get Valve to realise the MM is completely broken and fix it, they'll come back.

    edit: lol what, people are literally accusing OP of lying? These forums have reached new heights of wilful blindness.

    So if (according to your logic) we could say that HoN with it's 130 - 150k players per day is practically on life support right now, then games like Team Fortress 2, Civilization V, Football Manager 2013, Skyrim and Counter-Strike are practically worm-ridden corpses by now. Agreed?
    yes totally. they are dead.

    At least in HoN YOU CAN SEE YOUR FUCKING MMR.

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

    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.

    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.
