    Oh dear,

    ANother thread about the stupid 50% matchmaking system. I just honestly dont get it. Whats the point in trying to get a nice and high win % when the matchmaking system is going to bring you down anyway... and yeah 5 man stacks are not always an option. So why not just adopt dota 1 matchmaking system? So for instance in the search options for dota 2 you select the level range you want to search for game, so min being level 1 and then the maximum being your current level. Then at least you are in control of what the quality of your opponents and team mates are going be in a sense. In the experience award for each game if you play a game that is on the same level as your current level then you get normal exp. if u play games that level is below ur current level u get less exp.

    just a suggestion... valve should think about holding their current experienced player list rather than trying to get new players

    I haven't have any problems with Matchmaking ever since Ranked is introduced.

    I am fairly satisfied because I probably get 1 game-spoiler/negative morale loser in like 15 games, and I consider that to be a good number compared to in the past, where its around 1 in 5 games.
    People really get their shit together in Ranked and play dead serious. This is a good thing.
    He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.

      this is going to be locked like all the other matchmaking threads since the mods only allow criticism in a single matchmaking thread that barely anyone reads.

        Do you queue on US East? If you don't, then you seriously are talking for yourself, anybody that can only queue on US East (Or risk 250-300 ms on US West or any other server) is bound to believe the exact same thing OP does, and I'm pretty sure you know why it is, and - most likely - so does anybody that's been in this forum for at least a couple of hours, I'd specifically tell you why but then the thread would get closed even faster, gotta kill these opinions

          So if I am experiencing good games, why should Matchmaking algorithm be changed for me?

          Be specific if you want change and where you want it.

          I play on China and Southeast Asia and I find them perfect. I do not wish Valve to change anything about their algorithm now. See what i mean?

            And then people will complain that they get low-level players in their team and that MM sucks.
            Possible solution to foreigners issue

              I was specific about where i want the change and how to do it. Only reason u experiencing good matchmaking is either 1. You in a 5 man stack and you guys play well together or you are being teamed with people better than you and your team can win with you. Not saying you are a bad player since I have not ever played a game with you. Just saying sooner or later your win rate will be to high and you will get teamed with the biggest bunch of tards that is playing according to them to the best of their ability and you will experience 5 game losing streaks until you below 50% again. I dont mind playing with people that has a lower skill/level than myself but I was teamed 5 games in a row with 2 people that have played less than 20 dota games each and I have played about 1200, now you tell me if that type of matchmaking is fair for both parties?

                90% of my games are solo queue Ranked.

                Game is balanced for me. I am very happy.

                    Because the devs would rather check 100 different threads and search for feedback instead of having it all in one theard. Sorry for failing with this logic, I'll start spreading the feedback all over the forum so it takes ages finding it.

                    @OP: read the rules and use the stickies.
                    If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.
