  • How to get unban from low priority ? innocent player feel lost..

    i have been playing nicely on the last game, is just that the pings are unstable and it causes me to disconnect and delay at the ping of 1000
    i cant play and i tried to reconnect and reconnect but the result is still same , ended up another player reported me and i got banned and put into the low priority . can i know how the system works ? ... is there any investigation before the banning is done ? i need some answers ...

    The system is automated, the ban will not get removed.

        Sorry, but mods here are volunteers, so they don't have much power outside of these forums. You will have to play those LP games.

        Valve will only remove LPs if there was some server problem that affected the majority of playerbase.

          None of the other 9 players in that game are at fault because your internet connection failed. Also, no one can "officially" lift bans in this game.


          To answer your question: no, the reports are not checked by humans. There is only an automated system that does not check, but count the number of reports gotten. If you get x reports in y games -> LPQ. Of course, your ban is for failing to reconnect (reconnection time is 5 minutes) and that is system checked. This part of the system works OK, and my only advice to you would be to get a more stable internet connection.

            There is no customer support for this game. You can get banned for anything. If you don't like it, go play a game that doesn't do this.

              Play the 5 games. After each game remember to thank Gaben and Mother Russia. Repeat until you uninstall DotA.

                The mods here can not help you. They can't even help themselves get a life. The ban/low priority will not be lifted. The system valve has put in place doesn't work that way. More than likely you got a abandon game.

                Oh and to Kryil, you can send me all the pm's you want. I will not read them.

                  No one needed to report you, if you abandoned a game (which happens if you are disconnected 5+ minutes without pause) it counts as similar to a report. I'm not sure how many games you have to abandon to be sent in to low prio tho

                  Also playing with 1k ping a game like DotA is not doable. You should not be trying to play with such an unstable connection because you are affecting 9 other people. From my experience in W3C, anything below 300ms is a decent ping which allows you to play decently, anything above that and you start seeing problems and visible delay.

                  If your connection can be fixed then fix it before playing
                  Make sure you play only in the closest servers to you that offer as less ping as possible (Selecting all servers doesnt affects much in search time, anyway valve values quick search times over balance, so even if you select 1 server only you should still have short search times)
                  If it cannot be fixed play other games mate, you are trying to fend off a dragon with a flyswatter. Play turn based strategy games or something else

                  Its a shame mods allow such racism to continue in the forum. Asterix, I recommend you do some research about some papers and studies the Brock University in Ontario and other universities have been releasing the last couple of years about racism. It might explain some things for you.

                  Make a NON automated report system.
                  I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
                  Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
                  The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

                    What racism? I see no racism here. Maybe some justified xenophobia, considering that Russians are ruining tons of games. Please chill.

                      Frankly I see people of every single nationality ruining games.
                      If you go around preaching that certain nationality is better as a player or smarter than the other, yeah, it is racism.

                        No, it is not racism. Russians are not a "race". It is xenophobia (equally bad).

                        Also, go around forums, and tell me how many thread you find about Russians ruining games in EU servers, how many about Peruvians ruining games in NA servers, and how many about Filipinos ruining games in SEA servers. Of course that doesn't mean you will never find someone from a completely different culture/region ruining games, but these nationalities shine at it.
                        (I have no idea where you are from. If you belong to one of the previous nationalities, I apologize if I offended you. This was not meant as a personal attack, as I have never played with you.)

                          The fact that a lot of people say it doesnt makes it true. 99% of the population used to think that the earth was flat and that didnt make it true. If you believe thats how things work (a lot of people saying something makes it true) Why dont you go run in an straight line and give me a phonecall when you find the edge of the earth?.

                          If you see that bit of random unprocessed information which has little to no context or form from another point of view. It could also mean that those people are more racist and like to be vocal about how much better they are than people from X country. Or that people with such prejudices are more likely to express them in a forum than people without them. There's several ways to interpret the same bit of information.

                          I live in Australia and here we have problems with Asians flooding the Australian server and speaking in several different Asian languages during the game. Its pretty annoying, and its easy to come to the forum and blame them for it (even when a lot of that is Valve's fault due to some very poor design choices). I dont like playing with them, its a pain in the ass playing with someone with whom you cant communicate and who keeps babbling stuff that makes no sense for you. But I still consider it pretty unreasonable to go and say THIS nationality sucks.

                          Call it as you might, any kind of prejudice is the same thing. Its still an attitude/opinion without any facts backing it up. And no, lots of people whining is not a fact. Lots of people whining are just lots of people whining

                          And its also quite easy to see why people do that, by saying "X type of person sucks" Indirectly you are saying "I dont suck! I'm better! I'm worth something!" so this kind of attitude just tends to be from people trying to raise their selfsteem by diminishing others.

                          And as I said there's several recent studies by quite a few universities in the subject.
                          You can take a look at the paper of one of them in here http://pss.sagepub.com/content/early...21206.abstract
                          and here's a simpler article which mentions a couple of those studies http://aattp.org/multiple-scientific...m-and-low-i-q/
                          There's quite a few studies in the subject, feel free to go and read them and make your opinion about it.

                          But all of that is besides the point, whether if such prejudices are right or wrong is not my point, my point is that the forum supposedly prohibits such behaviours

                          Yet its quite sad that mods are more worried about locking topics that complain about the report system, than actually punishing people who make this kind of supposedly disallowed remarks.

                            I just checked it, and you did not report said post. No one did. This forum exists since ~3.5 years and has 1.1 million posts. That's an average of ~930 posts per day (and I'd say it started slowly in the first place and is currently somewhere @~3k per day or more). Do you expect me (us) to read them all? No offense here, it's just that it's impossible to moderate this without people reporting post

                            Anyway, like it has been said: low priority is never lifted. If you guys feel like arguing about racism/xenophobia, feel free to use PMs.
                            If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.
