  • Matchmaking Abuse Report Thread

    Due to the high amount of posts regarding matchmaking abuse lately, we decided to create a sticky to report games where someone fed intentionally to boost the matchmaking rating of another account.

    Before reporting an incident please check the match history of said players to ensure that it's not a single case of someone feeding (out of boredom/being mad/something else) and provide:
    • The matchid of the game
    • The name of the feeding player
    • The name of the boosted player
    • The amount of games you found where the player got boosted (if possible including matchids)

    Please understand that this is not a place to rant about lost games. Posts that don't follow the requirements can and will be removed to ensure that this thread contains valuable information.

    Feeding player: Datero
    Boosted players: [M]arduk, Quit for Tsunami Sry
    Ammount of games: 1 personally witnessed, Flauschi(Batrider) said Datero had been feeding on a previous match. Couldn't check game history because of private profiles.

    In the replay it can be seen how Datero buys items (courier, wards and TP), then TPs near the radiant fountain, drops items and feeds. [M]arduk gets the items, hits Datero and gets first blood. Then Datero feeds mid ("Quit for Tsunami Sry ") 6 or 7 times and he abandons.

        Feeding player was named S9 at the time. (Playing Spectre)
        Boosted player is a variant of KAeKAeMKAeM (Playing Weaver) - He us using altered letters so that name is not letter for letter.
        Amount of games: 3 for sure - Can't check game history because one is private and the other has "match history sharing" disabled.

        He ques Captains Draft. Insta-picks captain for himself and drafts bad lineups that would make sense to someone with 0 experience drafting. With or without complaints about the draft, he'll find a reason to feed and ruin the game. Friends of mine qued into this combination of accounts twice in a row and both times, the feed happened. When it happened to me I passed it off as a griefer, but after having friends que into the same people on opposite teams and having the same thing happen was by no means coincidence.

            This is the match. Feeder is mirana and the person getting fed the mmr is according to me weaver.
            Because 1. His profile is private
            2. His last game was with mirana too, I checked because the ES was there.
            3. I downloaded the replay and checked. Everytime mirana moves weaver doesnt, most notably is at 13 minute mark to 13.15. Mirana starts moving and uses leap whilst weaver top lane is tanking entire creepwave, when mirana stops getting controled weaver realises it and shukuchis out.
            4. Both had anime avatars from the same show
            5. Both logged at the sametime. A margin of smaller than 1 minute

            this was the game before

              Feeder was Axe
              Boosted I really don't know, but was probably Ursa. I didn't stay long as soon as I saw 30 couriers around

                Feeding player: qqw (randomly changes name im sure)
                Player boosted: .. (another player im sure changes his name every match also is the only one that has his profile set to private)
                This was the first game I found this happened but it was clear qqw the weaver was going to begin his feeding spree. He went up mid in an attempt to feed first blood but i abandoned the game milliseconds before he died. I took the abandoned and the loss for my team because this is the fourth time this has happened to me now. Every time i post on but somehow it continuously happens. I dont know what it will take to help make this game fair but its been happening for months now and valve seems to know about it and doesnt fix the problem. I am not sure why they have leaderboards if they allow players to exploit obvious bugs. I am done ranting about this and I am done with this game. Farewell dota 2 I will go support a game that gives a shit about its community like LOL. I loved dota for so many years but I can no longer tolerate this. I will be mass selling my entire inventory of items I am done with this game about to uninstall. I will protest this game I am so pissed off this keeps happening to me so over this. My name is Raiden and I have several posts about this exploit all unfortunately happening to me. I notice players exploit this bug more often in the early hours of the morning with them switching to different languages.....Really valve you cant fix this problem ?!?!?!?!? How pathetic, im done with this shit game

                    the guy has his profile set on private so I don't really know if he did this before or if there are boosted players, but even without boosted players this shouldn't be allowed .
                    So what happened is, the dark seer (In game name is Sexyhair) started feeding from the start, just running in their tower and standing there, when he respawned he'd do it again. Skywrath mage also fed, but he only started AFTER the dark seer fed like 5 kills. Please ban this guy or atleast punish him hard.

                    Here is a screenshot i took:

                      A growing amount of scripters/bots


                      Devs, It seems like there's a growing amount of bots playing around.

                      here's a sample report at the steam forums

                      here are the facts I know
                      they commonly use "name1234567" as their naming convention.
                      they usually play on ability draft mode
                      they have a uniform build.

                      Can we do something about this?
                      I hope this gets noticed, and those steam accounts insta-banned.

                        Got a screenshot and a match id (611258065) for a game I had where this just happened, really wasn't fun.

                          The amount of games you found where the player got boosted (if possible including matchids) unknown - both profiles private

                            I encountered a 5-stack of some sort of robots.

                            So I was playing ability draft with a couple of friends. This match started - I thought he other teams names were strange. Then they proceeded to be the WORST players I've ever encountered. and not normal bad - like easy bots bad. I don't know what's going on here, but it's definitely fishy.
                            Here's a shot of the end score screen. you can see they're all partied - they all bought the same items and they all fed like they were made of cake. the game was boring and disappointing.

                              6k MMR silencer feeds multiple couriers and afks out a game within the first few minutes. Obviously feeding friend on other team.


                              If you look at his history, half of his games are throws.
