      However the retarded asian new year map is really annoying. When you get insanely onesided stomps and at the end of the game there are fireworks all over the place, that shit is frustratingly retarded. Oh, one team never had any chance to win the game, comparing the overal skill in both teams, lets celebrate the onesided stomp with huge fireworks and big party..

      No Imo AD should go as well, it just frequents the playerbase, so the already abysmal matchmaking algorithm gets even worse, since it has less players to select from.

      I mean lets be honest here- Diretide and Wraith King should be enough of fun events for everyone, no need to force some lame nonsense events, that they werent even really prepared for, just to appeal to the asian community. Im sure everyone would be happier if they patched some obvious gamebreaking stuff and improve the MM.

        How does it affect you? Don't play it if you don't like it.

            If it wouldnt affect players of the "normal" dota mode, I wouldnt even care about those nonsense events, but it does affect them in the way, that it frequents the playerbase, so the algorithm doesnt have the huge pool to pick the "right" players from. I mean they have the funmode AD and year beast now and then, it probably takes at least 30% of the playerbase away. And since someone logically explained that how few ppl are in the pool of "not currently ingame" players, it changes alot.

            Then you have the different map pool additionally. Its not very good for MM I will tell you that much.

              You can select the normal map design at the Find Match tab if you don't like the CNY theme. And you're just stating how popular AD is. If it's popular, why should it go? It's the main reason I'm playing Dota 2 these days because it's too much fun. Yes I do get stomped hard with ridiculous combos at times, but at other times I stomp the other team hard with my own ridiculous combos too. It's all about fun, not about balance. Also, because of the drafting system in AD, you can actually prevent people from getting extremely overpowered combos by just picking up the skill they require to complement their combo.

                    My friend got around $50 on the first day with visage bug, but its so damn boring that I'd rather go to work for a couple hours instead.

                    AD has too many leavers, like every game I manage to get a good combo somebody leaves on start.

                      I will be honest with you guys I also miss it, even though im not a fan of fun modes Ever since I started playing Omni in WN, we won almost 90% of all games, even with newbies for WN mode

                      WN was cool, hell Id still play it if it was around.

                      However beast year thing is nowhere near as fun. Its mostly frutrating because of the nature of the beast, that it jumps on players who revive teammates and disrupts the revive process.

                        Is the new event kinda meh? Yes it is.

                        Should it end prematurely (so far all events lasted 2 weeks)? I don't think so. With the mode being so tedious only true item collectors will play it - those who don't care that a mythical item costs less than $1 on the market, because the item still looks nice and they are getting it for themselves. And I think that's good. F!ck traders.

                          Yeah i played WN, because it was challenging (esp. with newb players) and also gave you somewhat of a reward. Year Beast is just frustraing most of the time, except you have 60k+ gold.

                          Id recommend valve to create events that you can actually "complete". Because the year beast does seem to be a hell of a OP mf. Esp. in late game.
