  • Ability draft : Just for fun ?

    Before the actual thread , read this . This thread is related to this , but I am trying to make it more specific.

    So , as the title says, I think ability draft should not be counted as win / loss. Just for pure fun. You do win or lose but it's not written in your logs as "LOSS" or "WIN". This will make this mod susceptible to trolls. Therefore , LPQ should still apply normaly.

      I stopped caring for my W/L a long time ago. I play this mode purely for fun, but it can be helpful for finding good hero combinations and testing your knowledge of stats and statgains.

        Of course it is, its like -wtf mode in original dota where skills had no cooldown X)
        Make a NON automated report system.
        I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
        Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
        The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

          Yep IDC if some people think it is weird that some people care about win//lose but welp deal with it,I care and if you like you say don't care there is no reason for that mode to count win//lose.

          That mode is not fun for me as long as it affects win and lose so I'm not playing it untill they "fix" that.
          Thank you IceFrog, Valve and Dota 2 team for everything you doing for Dota 2 community.

            If it is part of ranked match making, then it is serious... if not...

              Wait ... W/L in ability draft actually count for your general W/L? Holy fucking shit. Just when you think Valve cant make any more idiotic decisions.
