  • New Play Mode Suggestion

    I would love a mode where the role is manditory based on the random position you are in the roster.

    Position 1 has most choices for any hero and can be mid

    position 5 has to be a support (no other option) if no support has been chosen or has to be a support if 1 semi-support has been chosen.

    That would be my favorite mode by far and I would be glad being 5th 30% of the time and supporting.

    Also people not very experianced with DotA woulnd not choose if for fear of getting forced into a role.
    Prove it is the war cry of the idiot when he wants you to think for him...

    =))) worst mode ever. So if i play alone when being paired with 4 man stack I will either be first or last, BRILIANT.
    Btw YOU CAN'T FORCE META on people, you can't force roles and lanes because the game is very different every time. And how do you classify a semi-support? And why force position 2-3 to pick carry? Games can be won without a classic hard-carry as they can be won without a classic support ward bitch hero.
    People will still do dumb shit and will still pick retard heroes that don't synergize with each other. And people can be bad at certain roles, not everyone is a complete player.
    If this is a suggestion for ranked then it would mean shittier matchmaking since it would divide the player pool and you might get a big rating difference because of that.

      Last time I checked... this isn't where you provide suggestions for the game.

      http://www.playdota.com/forums/


      Go there for new ideas/suggestions/stuff that isn't related to actual development of the game itself.

        Well what we have now is not working... any better ideas to create a balanced team much more often without being a smart a$$ about it?

        Perhaps que into a game pre selecting role? All other roles greyed out...

          Suggested a million times and rejected each time. If you want to play with fixed roles and have a static meta, then dota isn't the game for you.

            Well to be fair I did suggest a new mode, as did many, many, many others before me. Volvo only delivers hats.

            Here, my post about a new mode:http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?...l=1#post986323

              Killing creativity is not what Dota is all about. The best players can play any hero in different role. Even in a team of 5 carries, they will stomp the balanced team hard provided they can stall the game long enough for them to get farmed although that is very difficult to do especially in pubs.

              If this game mode ever comes, people used to playing this will flame people doing unconventional builds or using unconventional heroes for the role without understanding the reason behind it.

                Well when I get a random carry in all pick and then everyone else chooses a carry on purpose that is just nonsense. No one wards or buys any support items so that theory is to isolated to have any weight and besides you would have other modes for that.

                When I get a random support I am happy cuase at least the team will have one.

                There are all sorts of solutions to this problem but a way needs to be found to stop the stupidity... if Volvo or frogice guy or whoever will not address this in some way then they are just Donkeys themselves.
