  • telling people to speak english = low priority. perfect volvo *clap*

    so you queue up eu west, english only, and get not only a team, but a match full of russian speaking clowns. so after kindly asking them to speak english, and being friendly throughout the whole match you get gang reported, called a "motherfuck" and end up in low priority for a solid 7 hours.

    before recent patches, i was already being gang reported by some trolls who couldnt communicate and got chatbanned here and there. well, i didnt really care, but now legit players are sent to low priority for absolutely nothing?

    good system, keep the good work up volvo! rip doto.

        Russian retards, don't we all love them? If you notice a name that looks slightly russian during the loading screen, just instantly disconnect. Every single one of them is retarded by nature, never will you have a decent game when playing with or against russians. With them, you get stomped. Against them, you stomp.
        Volvo, how the fk are we supposed to stick by the rules and not get reported if those rules are different for everyone and there is no one controlling at all why people are reporting someone? Either implement oversight or remove your utterly broken and useless report system

              I believe this was successfully done in America, when a lady won a 1 million dollar lawsuit vs. McDonalds based on yelling at a cup of coffee for being too hot. Well she spilled the hot coffee on herself and as a resulted yelled out loud which is kinda they same yes?

              Just do what I do. Tell them I can't understand you so I am going to mute you and then report you for failing to call Missing.

                Now i personally don't playing with or against people speaking a different language, but if you really want to not play with russians just search for AUSTRALIAN servers in english. I maybe get a foreigner every 15 or so games and thats just 1. You may not get your best ping ever, but before the australian server was set up i was doing just fine playing on us/european servers.

                      because nobody would report if they were kindly asked to speak english. op probably raged at them and/or insulted their nationality otherwise they wouldn't bother to waste reports

                        Do you even play this game?
                        We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

                          If there was rage at their nationaility or skin colour sure I agree.

                          I just really hate the word being thrown around for no reason other than to try and shut down someones arguement via ad hominem. I have seen proper racism and trust me if you had as well you would not want to throw the word around as it decreases the significance of it.

                              yes i do. reports are precious, we only have like 2 reports per week or so, people may be rude to you for a request to speak english (not without a reason, if it's a stack most of things which they say are not related to you anyway, i remember i played lol with non-english speaking stacks (eu server =/= english only server) and it's very annoying when your 5th decided that he should know everything you speak and so 4 people should speak english only just to make him happy, obviously when it's something important for him to know it would be said in english) but they will not report you if you don't annoy them well enough
