  • Dota 2 and the problem with ranked.

    We have seen valve implement a ranked match making. They added this with intent on allowing players to see where they stand against other players. The problem is they allow players from other countries that speak different languages to play on US servers. Unfortunately, the south americans have a problem with their own ISP and are unable to enjoy playing on their own servers. Valves solution: allow them to play with english speaking players.

    Lets ignore the racism issue, this is not the case, some of them play well.

    How does a company have the nerve to launch a RANKED mode for a game that heavily relies on communication to play? How is it enjoyable to play with someone whose only english skills include: "fuck noob" or "fuck you noob" or any three word sentence.

    This is an absolute joke. By continuing to play we are accepting the joke.

    Here is a solution: if you cant refuse the internationals the right to play on our servers (which I don't know how you can't, this is America, not fucking peru) then Valve needs to include in the match algorithm to place these internationals on the same team. We clearly don't get along, before most games even start, the need to check a players profile instantly makes players want to leave games.

    I've tried on so many levels to play with these internationals, but it's getting tiresome, to the point where im beginning to hate this game that I've played for 10 years. Be reasonable people, work with the community to root out this issue. You will see a decline in American players the more this is allowed.

    If you want, you can allow the internationals to play with us on the non ranked mode. In that mode we are playing for hats and who gives a shit if you win or lose. US East/West ranked servers shouldn't have internationals on the english speaking players side. Use the ISP information to your advantage and place teams accordingly. I'd rather wait an extra 5 minutes to have all english players on my team.
