  • Suggestion: Pre-game search for teammates

    Hi I was thinking it would be cool to have a community area where you can find other pubs to queue with. This way you know something about them before you go into a game.

    Perhaps also add a "profile" to Dota profile where you can talk about yourself, and maybe say things like:

    I will play Support, i am good at naga, cm, thd.

    so you can kinda draft up a balanced team then queue for a game. then once you get in the game people can play what they like and still have a balanced game. (and maybe be friends afterward)

    Food for thought. anyone have any ideas? i think it could be a potentially powerful tool, and increase community among players. Also you can filter out people you don't want to play with. This way it's like playing as a 5 stack, but with pubs.

    I think that would be a good idea to have something in game to allow players to easily find other people to play with prior to actually searching for a match.
    This would encourage people to make friends in game through this system which would probably improve their matchmaking enjoyment.

        Problems:
        - Profile status PRIVATE -> you don't see anything
        - People can also type there Insults or anything that they want...

        For finding Pubs to join with you can join chat channels and talk there.
        If you want to see a player's best heroes you can search for his name on Dotabuff.com, if he is to be found there...

        I don't understand this: " This way it's like playing as a 5 stack, but with pubs."
        5 people stack can be made out of pubs also... what's new?
        This is how Dota2 games should look like! Game 1_Game 2_Game 3_Game 4_Game 5_Game 6

          i'm saying besides just chat, they should have some usable UI experience that makes searching for people to queue with a pleasant experience
