  • Streaky Matchmaking

    Win 9 out of 10, then lose 12 in a row... happens to me constantly. It's a vicious cycle.

    I am being matched with complete noobs. I am level 355 now, I get guys in the 15 to 20 range all the time.

    How is this fair? Game is getting worse and matchmaking is to as time goes on.

    This is what valve calls quality match making

    Instead of doing improvements to improve match making. They spend their time by working on useless crap for the game, like adding a certain noise now to the runes when they are taken. Valves priorities aren't they grand ?

      Level isn't an indicator of skill. Only experience.

      An inexperienced player with fast reaction times and a good map awareness could easily be paired with a noob with tons of experience.

        Yeah, many noticed something similar, including myself. Most likely valve rigged the matchmaking to keep everyone happy, so total idiots will sometimes win too. Unfortunately dota 2 is a "free game" made by a company who's sole purpose is making money, don't think that we don't pay for playing dota 2.

          over 1500 games and this patter repeats itself over and over again. And the sad part is that you aren't even allowed to get mad because of it. The frustration of knowing the game is doomed from the start is not fun.
