    Ranked matches are pointless

    Don't need to state why - this system is hilarious.

    I don't see the purpose of ranked games at all and I'm not any kind of pro dota player or something but I have my fair share of years playing it.

    So, being at 3.5k MMR and dropping down to 2.9k was the first issue of this system. Players I met at 3.2-3.6k rating were people who didn't know builds, how to play at all and I'm talking about the basics to playing dota.

    The general idea of playing games was you won a game and you lost a few - generally winning the game was purely because you either carried or the enemy team was worse than yours. What's even more funny is that once you got your MMR winning or losing doesn't make a difference - a win or a loss give almost equal amount of points so there's no way escaping your terrible MMR unless you somehow magically win 20 games in a row because of disconnects.

    My question is what is the point of ranked then? If the players in it are so bad - it sort of elimnates the whole idea of it being 'ranked' why would you even make an MMR based upon team mates who can easily alter it due to the awful matchmaking system - unless you actually enjoying having your games thrown.
    Surely valve couldn't have made such an awful system to determine players skill? I have a few friends who are at 4k MMR and have less than 400 hours on dota 2.

    I mean seriously - once you're at terrible MMR you'll have better games in normal than ranked - at least from my experience
