  • (idea)role selection queue

    hi I remember in WoW u had the option to queue (in dungeons) as healer , dps or tank so It would be a great idea that we had a similar option lik that in dota 2 for example what are the team compositions : 1 carry , 2 supports, 1 ganker, 1 initiator or it would be a good idea too to make the player decide what type of team comp he wants to chose then once you queue as for example support only support heroes are avalible for him but the other player from his team would just show carrys heroes avalible to pick an so on so we avoid teams that pick 5 melees 5 carrys or team comp that would never work

      Although I'm fine with such idea, I think this will make the game stale in terms of strategies/picks. For example - there is a great counter to 2-3 enemy heroes, but the hero in question is a semy-carry or a tank ,but you can't select him , cause you selected support on the queue, and you are last pick..
      So no.

            There are teams with just plainly 3 carries 2 supports who work well and then there's teams with 1 support and 4 semi-carries / casters to win early game. So besides varying in roles, it would be weird in terms of herors too...

            I'm against this.

              Sometimes I just want to play Alchemist support.It's cool.
              I've played Anti-Mage support.
              I've played Lina carry.
              I've played KOTL carry.
              I've had games with 5 melee carries that I've won.
              I've won games without carries, also have been beaten by it.
              I'm against this.It's bullshit.
              You can win 2S3C with 5S or 5C(C-Carry/S-Support).
              With 5S you have to win early , but still achiveable, just make one of them a good ganker.

                Useless in Dota, -1.

                A carry can still be played as a support, and a support can still be played as a carry.

                  won't work with multi-purposed heroes.
                  People will queue up for support (no one wants to play support if I go by these forums) to minimize queue sizes like for tank and healer in wow compared to dps.
                  Then play like carry or initiator or whatever because they are pro and are the ones that have to carry their team all games.

                    Yeah, you can't lock the heroes, that would be dumb.

                      Is that what we have the CAPTIAINS MODE for? so you can pick all the balance shit as one wanted?

                        I have used support bloodseeker once after seeing my team lacks support and we did just fine. Even void can support in the worst case scenario by building refresher and utility items instead. Dota heroes are very flexible so role queue is not needed.

                          WEll you can have it where you select 2 Roles like 1 and 4. 1 being your main. And all matchmaking has to do is find other people that prioritize with different numbers. So you have 5 people that selected 1-5 as their roles. Especially helpful for captains mode so the captain can ask who queued up for Position 2 and ask them what they play and make the team around that.
