  • why do people want to play dota 2 solo queue?

    they already know this is a team game but why do you think some want to queue solo?

  • #2
    Because they like the game and don't have anyone to stack with.

      Have no friends or people to play with. I have played only 3 ranked matches and really just don't enjoy the modes available. Also people like me have trouble finding a full group to are able to play at the times so solo is better.

          i dont have friends devoted to dota like meself. besides that, friends never invite me in party for some reason, few ppl would like to play with me on this world. so i guess im a lonely wolf, and i think i'll remain so.

            Most of my dota playing friends are a lot worse than me and I don't want to do my best for 40 minutes only to lose hopelessly.
            Another portion of my dota playing friends are unknown to me, but since I now play ranked exclusively, I won't experiment with them when MMR is at stake.
            The very few friends who I enjoy playing with aren't necessarily online/available/interested at that moment. Also, some of them quit due to bad MM.

            So I queue solo. I don't think it's worse than playing in a party like some do as I've had plenty of party games ruined by the 1 or 2 random people we got on our team.
            Check my My Steam profile for trade interests, etc.

                    Oh its easy.
                    When you play with some stack in your team and you are loosing, there is quite big chance that stack will report you for the loss, also they can blame you in voice/chat and etc...
                    Such practice was annoying with start of voice abuse reporting, where you could get muted by 4 players stack from your or enemy team. For now its just voice/chat abuse/trolling from stacks.

                    Another quite big problem is that premade stacks quite often communicate in another voip program (skype, msn etc..), and that means that again you are in loosing end.

                      That sounds like Krunning Duger and grandiose delusions to me. Would have to ask Avidity or Heh for permission to suggest you to read those Wikiretardia articles.

                        You also understand that dunning Kruger also notes how a higher skilled player can more accurately distinguish real skill, right? You need to read the article.

                          I'm pretty sure losing is not a reportable offense.

                            I trust in matchmaking's decision rather than selecting my own party mates. Being able to win in solo queue also shows that you are a flexible, adaptive, and co-operative player
