    So.. suggest some accurate system for MMR that wouldn't be abused. If you make something like GPM/XPM/CS or K/D/A congratulations, you just killed supports. If there was something like this in the game, you would have to pick support and solo support the whole team. Even though you were warding, protecting your carry etc. you would have sth like 2:12:11, now imagine you would win that game, would you be happy if despite winning the game and trying so fucking hard even last picking support just to get +2mmr? Please...
    IF I SUMMARIZE IT - THERE IS NO WAY TO IMPROVE MMR SYSTEM WITHOUT IT BEING ABUSABLE. ACCEPT YOU SUCK AND GET BETTER AT COMMUNICATING WITH YOUR TEAM AND FOCUS ON WINNING.

    To the ones that came here saying that only one man can win the game --> i hope you are having a good time at LOL, i will just ignore.

    Whoever said anything about seasons, my applause that would be brilliant and would solve a lot of ISSUES! Now that i come to think about it, blizzard games have seasons all over them. Make total sense.

    And to finish however said that the MMR system is always changing, i starting believing so -- during last week till now my team started behaving normally.. mby 3k and 4k got a bunch of nabs but at least some decency to support me while i am carrying or i supporting carries that actually look at the map.

    I rly wish that the constant gaming experience would be a must for devs. And imagine if they were fined for not playing
    As it is right now, i can see some devs crying "I don't wanna play today, I lost all my games yesterday, but I have to play cuz I don't want to get -$100 fine".

    Sweet dreams...

    Well actually the mute system is the only reason I believe the devs play, and they dont play very often, hence they are bad, and get abused often.

    And yeah I heard about that as well, dont you love the abuse of power? X)

    I know what you meant. I just dropped that reply by for fun. You know, you play the game, you can't really do much if people flame your great ancestors. Mr. developer plays the game, instantly mutes the guy he doesn't like. Mhm, yeah.

    What I meant by play is have a understanding of the game.. you know, knowledge that would make someone stand up and "wtf how can you judge skill by damage done!". But no one had the idea then, they needed to see live how much this sucks because they have no idea that some heroes can have amazing impact without dealing heavy damage!

    Imagine the dev playing in the current dota community. He'd be muting and LP'ing people in every game.

    I wonder what they would say, when, for example, they get matched with autistic basement dwellers. Two times in a row.

    Or when they choose "English" in language preferences, and get matched with russians, who keep saying DA DA YES FAWK YU, BURGER EATER no matter when you say. Or some arabs talking turkish yada-yada.


    Devs don't play the game.

    When you consider the main thing they were using to balance you in to ranked mode was by using HERO DAMAGE...are you really surprised?
    Yeah, fuck support players, just promote Sniper, Jugger and other mindless hero picking. A right click "mid only or feed pro" will get calibrated at 4-5k, while support player will get 2k and will be forced to play carry even if he doesn't want to, in order to carry 2k scrubs.

    I hope someone said this just to troll people, and it's not actually true.

    Yeah thats why a lot of account sellers started abusing zeus to get high ranks and sell the account. They just spammed ult every time they had it.

    They patched it since. But its unlikely they made it decent or half smart. they prolly just added a cap to how much damage you can use to boost yourself. Which is still stupid.

    It all depends on the matchmaking system.
    Sometimes you get matched with so bad teammates, I'm not even sure they are human.

    It almost feels like I'm matched with them, because Valve test some freaky matching algorythms.

    My winrate downed 1%, to 50.90% with overall 1800 games recently, because at least a few games I am matched with 1/2 complete autists and 1 guy who takes mid, wins it, but these two who picked carry lose the game. It's like the matchmiaking is changing, one week I am matched with sane and nice people, and complete turds the other week.
    This whole losing/gaining 3.22% win rate, losing/gaining 9k MMR won't matter till they introduce seasons. The whole ladder is fucked up completely at the moment, it reeks of smurfs and account buyers, wherever you play.
