      i think it is for the better, in my personal experience when i play with my all life friends (im a 5000 mmr player they are 2500) i let the solo do whatever he wants since my friends will cover support and i will cover mid/carry but when i play with my team friends we always end up bulling the 5th player

        It's a really bad decision! Me and my friends have often only a 3 or 4 man stack because someone cant come or just doesn't want to play. Now we have to wait until we find a fifth guy or one of us has to play alone.
        I don't like that change at all!

            Aww, my friends and I usually only 4 stack, now someone has to be left out. As a party, I don't particularly like stacking as 4, the solo player is usually super fucking aggressive and doesn't communicate with us. And believe me, I try my best to communicate with other players. As a solo player, though, I enjoyed playing as the 1 with a 4 stack. They usually have better coordination, they either leave me alone and let me do my own thing or I help them and shit gets done. I find that 3 stacks and 2stacks are usually far more aggressive.

                  I find russian 4 stacks impossible to deal with. Now there is one less problem.

                  And about the whining , you can always play as 3 or just search any site for another player willing to play with you. It's not like you can't find ANY other English speaker in the whole community !

                    Isn't finding a random 5th going to be exactly the same as being matched as a 4 stack? It's still a total stranger, communication won't be as good as the main group and there wouldn't be anything to lose to just argue with the 5th. Your suggestion to the problem is to just remove matchmaking from the equation and find random people on your own, which seems to just be adding an uneeded middleman for the same end result.

                    Also "just play as 3" isn't really an option when you have 4 friends. Why am I being punished for having one extra friend? Am I just going to kick my 4th friend out? How do we decide the 4th friend to kick out? We could always just play unranked, but ranked seems to have higher skilled players and better games overall.

                      What is the point in this? Brb having to decline one of our friends when we want to play ranked. Solid change with 0 purpose whatsoever.

                          Sickening stroke of logic you got there.

                          Oh well, I guess that means no more dota for us now, Bohemia gonna be happy as we'll go full arma 3 now.

                            know weither he's good or not before the matching. you are able to decide if you keep him or remove him, in pubs, you cant do that

                                No, let's force a random solo player to play with 4 players that will ruin his game and blame him for it.

                                What if I have 6 friends? Do I just have to kick my 6th friend out? At least you still have the option to play unranked.
