    Valve isn't there to remove Fan Devotion to the game and a ranked match making would remove the need for creating Leagues
    It's been done for me.

      1st quote - empty phrase judgement not supported by ANY arguments at all <- read with understanding maybe ?

      2nd quote - how is long term discussion an argument for majority to be wrong ??? <- missed shot again

      3rd quote - fan contribution ?? seriously ? let`s assume there are 10 worthwhile leagues, and each of them is led by 5 ppl = 50 ppl alltogether. This is really GREAT part of community which we cope with here... lol. What`s more, if those leagues draw too much attention, law is law, and law says that valve can shut those leagues down with no problem at all (and thus all effort ppl have put in getting ranks in those leagues will go to waste together with leagues themselves - no go for me and for all those who vote "for" matchmaking ranking). So why fight ppl who in some way take away valve`s money ?? It`s better and easier to make inside ranking. Dota is for 500k players, not for 50 ppl making 3rd party leagues. What`s more, those leagues are usually for good players ( like to enter one of leagues you need to have 500 wins ), so noobs have much fun taken away from them, and let`s be honest - each one of navi, alliance and other proteams were noobs some time ago.

      summing up, you better think of some arguments yourself, cos those found as emergency life savers after reading my message to you are just no good.

        This IS Elo. Jesus.
        Having let`s say 1800 rating you obviously won`t get in 1 game with ppl with like 1400 rating = increased quality of games. In team MM case is a bit different, since 2 friends can pair up, one of which is a noob ( one has 1900 rating, another one 1500 ). A simple way of solving cases like that, is that IF situation like this happens, player who has extensive difference in rating over rest of players in game, will recieve less (or none ) bonus rating points for won game.
        That's how Elo works.

        Seriously, do you even know what Elo is?

                  Ok, can we all focus on topic plz ? This was supposed to be discussion, but shame on me, I let myself be pulled into useless and meaningless off-topic stuff - from now on I`m gonna ignore such helpless cases. Let`s better try to bring devs attention here because as we can see from poll, ranking in matchmaking would make many ppl happy

                    Enough with these polls, they just don't care.
                    Deal with it.
                    The workload required on the more recent batch of heroes has been increasing over time with the addition of a wide range of new animations, the addition of being Workshop ready on release and having the correct breakdown in order to prevent having to remove the hero from the Workshop and halt progress on the community items like we have seen in the past along with just an overall higher quality model and texture work.-Cyborgmatt

                      There's nothing to discuss, majority of the playerbase would like to see their MMR and anyone who doesn't believe that is a fool.
                      Everything is in Valve's hands.

                        What topic? You're clearly below the average in intelligence. There is a rating, as has been pointed out several times already. Elo is a rating for God's sake.

                          Matchmaking IS ranked. What you described is EXACTLY how elo works.
