  • Cosmetics, Tournaments... What about gameplay?

    Does anyone else feel like Dota has become distracted with cosmetic items and promoting its pro scene?

    It sure is making Valve a lot of money, but playing matches IMO has gotten worse.

    Ranked matchmaking still has a lot of problems. There have been a ton of great suggestions that gets posted in these forums but it's almost like they aren't even considered. 1 or 2 suggestions gets implemented after a long while probably out of coincidence. It seems like not much effort is being put in to improve matches.

    Do you feel playing Dota has gotten more or less fun or stayed the same?

    well, i think hatz are fun. and so what valve make money? they should, they're not a charity organization. about matches i don't feel anything different, maybe a slight increase in leavers. yes, there are some bugs and thing that can be improved, but to say the hole game has become about hatz is unfair mate. i remember those old days in d1 when the match starts 5v5 and end 2v3. never somthing like this happened in d2 for me.

      dota 2 is intended to sell hats from the beginning, the gameplay is just the bonus that comes with it ++

        There was a time when hats didn't exist ... Valve was better back then.
