  • Ranked Matchmaking? YES! THIS Ranked Matchmaking? Ehhh.....

    Look Valve, I realize you have no idea what you're doing with MOBA games, but how did you manage to screw up RMM?

    -Almost everyone I've seen go through placement matches ends up with ~4k RMM. Is there any point to those 10 games at all?
    -Why only 3 game modes? And why in all that is holy did you think putting a Ranked All Pick mode was a good idea? What about Random Draft?
    -No more Solo-que. Getting a team of 5 randoms against a stack of 3 and a stack of 2... are you kidding me?
    -Longer que times (I could deal with this if it meant the quality of the games had gone up, but so far I haven't seen that being the case)
    -With the only alternative to the cesspool that is AP being two captains modes the possibility of your captain completely screwing your team over with awful picks is pretty much unavoidable
    -Also with the only alternative to AP being two captains modes, game's take drastically longer to start. Again, what's wrong with RD?

    -Going in the right direction, the game didn't have any functionality to separate players looking for a competitive experience from casuals

    (also I really REALLY hope the SK reskin is not permanent)
    I realize this will get ignored and closed for being an opinion.

    Well, I've had a pretty good experience with RMM so far. The only bad ones where in All Pick mode, oddly enough.
    I still have only 12 games in it, but so far, so good. I just wish that we had that "All Draft" thingy so it could be a little more fluid. Most of the time the captain chooses almost everything, and I've got screwed twice having to play heroes I'm not familiar with or are directly countered by the enemy's picks.

    I hope Valve keeps this patching "frenzy" up tho. I'm glad about the direction they're taking now.
