  • Idea for commend system and game roles? changes

    Commend system right now is just useless. I suggest instead of the present options to be as follows :
    ONLY in solo queue to be able to commend a player on abilities such as (farmer, sololaner, support, roamer..). And once the player has a certain amount of such commends(like 20-30 i dunno) in the same field he gets the ability to show that achievement inside the game.

    Reasons:
    1) Current commend system is useless
    Most commends you see right now are from people who commended their friends or from a long time ago where you could commend a player for all the options.
    People never commend the other team (specially in high mmr) cause they're so proud or too busy flaming their team for losing to actually give someone credit. You're never gonna find someone commending for leadership (etc. ) from the opposite team, like once in 50 games from your team if you win and team is happy enough to take the time to commend you for having a great part in winning the match, or every game if you're Dendi. HOWEVER if commends were about your role in that game and would actually matter for something, then maybe that guy on the other team will actually think: what if i get matched with him in a future game ..i'd like to know what he's good at so lets commend him (not for being superskilled and way better than me, noone will do that) but for being good in a special role.

    2) Matchmaking
    Valve doesn't want to reveal mmr or anything about the team (except for wins IF they want to show them and that's useless). Problem with this is: you don't know your teams current level, what they're good at. You want to play support without knowing that you were actually the best solo laner / farmer in that game. Your other teammate has to pick mid or carry when he is lower rated than you are and has to go against a player that only plays mid and can dream the lane and matchups. He dies.. opponent snowballs and it's not really your guys fault for being placed in a game with higher rated players than he is usually placed with, and couldn't have known he was going to lose so bad).
    Also if two players want the same role, you have a way of knowing which one would be better at it.

    Other things:
    Only 1 commend per game in a field. So you were god one game. that shouldn't mean you get 9 commends in the same field. If 2+ more players want to commend you they have to commend in different roles(like 1 selects roamer, 1 solo laner)
    If you have more such achievements for display, you have to select only 2. we don't need players showing off 10 different things they're good at.
    The amount of commends needed to display that "medal" as a status should grow proportinately to the skill level of the match you're placed in

    Just a suggestion. Somewhere to start from to change current commend system. Needs better finishing

        even better just remove it trololol
        If it wasn't for LoL, there'd be no Dota2.
        If it wasn't for DotA, there'd be no LoL
        If there was no AoS, there'd be no DotA.
        It's a genre:
        Just because its different doesn't mean its wrong.
        Just because its the same, doesn't mean its wrong.

          1) well odds are higher commended guy played more that role and is better at it, so other guy says ok fine ill give u freefarm bot and go woods or offlane or just support. OR just ask "Hey dude i see u are good at that thing but i still want to practice that specific role!" ..if he got those commends then he's good at the game and will be openminded and say fine u can have it..i'll just play X.
          Also i never said the number of commends should be displayed. just a kind of badge which shows u got enough commends in THAT area to be considered good
          2) u can display them only if u want during game. like i said u don't have to base ur roles on it (like you currently dont base anything on commends) but it's something really helpful to have. and the ability to display them should be rather difficult to obtain so it wouldn't be that common. and if u see a guy having one of these u know..hey he's probably going to good at what he chose so i'll trust him or even spend time harrasing opponent off his lane, assuring that this guy has the start he wants so game goes in our favour

            And another benefit:

            Random guy is rather new to the game, he only played riki,am and the likes. one game he has to pick (or randoms) a support and plays support that game. Because of his supporting team wins and he gets commended. Random guy thinks well i'm pretty good at this supporting thing i should consider playing it more often to become even better.
            again: HE DOESNT HAVE TO, BUT IF HE SEES HE'S GOOD AT IT MAYBE HE WOULD CONSIDER IT

                  delete commends because theyre pretty worthless. the only reward we need are more hats.
