        The system that exists now? I'm leaning towards yes. I rarely speak in my games, if I do it's no more than 1 or 2 enters so I don't put to much stock into my perspective aside from that I can say I have never been put there[mute] unfairly through rage.
        If I walk through a door and you're either more than 3 seconds or 5 feet behind me, I ain't holding it open

          Works in what way? In the sense that it's much less likely than it once was for people to be unfairly muted? Yes. In the sense that it reforms players? Hell no.
          We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

            The question was if it works.

              Not really, no. It just makes playing the game difficult when you're unable to properly communicate with others because they're muted.

              We already have a personal mute feature. There's no reason a global one needs to exist. Besides, since there's no way to mute pings you may as well say the whole system is worthless.

                      If asked in terms of the latter I'm putting my money on nobody saying yes to that in this thread. Or ever.

                        I keep hearing people saying it works but I find it to be a over simplistic and over-sensitive approach to bad conduct. Cause

                        A) conduct held in someone else's hands that is verbal is subjective. If i say, "Why the fuck would you use your Q there you dipshit tard homo". They might think its funny or you are just some random guy on the internet acting dumb.

                        B) Majority of the time they aren't even offended they just want to abuse a feature so it abuses you and

                        C)It does nothing but ruin games later AND! there is already a local mute system. It takes 2 seconds to open the scoreboard and mute someone. Guess what too, THat person will stay muted forever until you unmute. Brilliant.

                            I really want to know why they did it. Is there a underground dota committee that says this is okay?

                              Yeah the system works. Except it works in such a way that everyone ingame are afraid to communicate at all because they fear they will be muted.
