  • Tired of matchmaking system.

    So, i had a nice week or two of matchmaking, even people with russian nicknames and who were writing in Cyrillic tried and succeded at communicating , i even started streaming. Then today after another great game with great teammates(all randoms), i queued for another AP game, opened another can of coke and loaded up the map. To sum everything up - My team Fed(normal, i understand that everyone has their ups and downs in pubs), 3 out of 4 were writing in Cyrillic, so i couldnt understand, they didnt respond to any requests, after i , what i assume angered one of them, so they started flaming me. Ok i muted them, the game obviously, was lost cause the enemy Safelane was fed. The point isn't russians, it is that they had 600-700 hours of Dota, while i have ~1200. What happened, why the matchmaker made me play with noobs, after a week of nice teammates i get dirt, that dont even speak english(English queue). If this helps, i have 20 more wins than losses.

    I don't care, ill just move on, but i am interested what is the math behind this?

    maybe the search range just got too long? ( when it gets too long, it will match you withever players from eu, russian, or even SEA just to decrease searching time)
    soultion: whenever your searching range gets a bit long (~2:00 minutes of searching) stop it, and repeat searching from start.
    I've done this today and it worked, 6 players out of 10 were speaking english, (including my teammates)
