    Don't talk to me about how you win some you lose some.
    Don't talk to me about how 'It's all your fault you are losing'.
    Don't talk to me about how I should do something else in my game.
    Please take a wild guess what all of these games have in common.
    If you answered some guy who feeds courier/ruins the game on purpose/talks in foreign languages all the time, DING!, you are absolutely right.
    Valve have this stupid star system implement that puts you in games with other people who have the same star rating as you.
    For me, thats the 1 star queue. And it's terrible, and has nothing to do with skill, but since some geniuses thought it was a good idea to use this in normal and RANKED games, I'll just keep losing until I fall ot 4.something K mmr.
    And that is absolute bullshit. All this rage I build up from this streak made me see the bigger picture. I genuinely liked dota when I started playing it(2011), and it quickly became my favorite passtime. I was playing for hours upon hours, and the more I started understanding about the game, the more I started disliking losing, especially since ranked was introduced. But now, thinks have changed.
    This game, for the past two years, has been nothing but a shitty cash grab. Valve will soon turn into the next EA(at least they actually dish out good games once in a while), and there is really no hope for any of their competitive games(Dota & CS), because they, as a company focus more on the money-making aspect of the game, than on actually fixing bugs, taking community suggestions more seriously, etc.
    Well, I for one, have had enough.
    I'm out.
    Done.
    No one will care, because I'm not the first. But I won't be the last.
    Very soon many more like me will follow, and will hopefully open up Valve's eyes.

        Actually, I did buy the previous two compendiums, and I have bought sets and keys before, and these are the things I regret spending money on the most.
        No way in hell am I ever giving valve any of my money.

            Love the last desperate attempt to win with Sniper. 13 losses in a row takes some serious talent, gj.

              What is funny? The only constant in our games is us.

                That game would've been won had it not been for the fact we had a russian earthshaker and a russian bloodseeker who decide that courier feeding was the way to go after our leshrac failed to euls a SF that was tping out.

                    The star system is a psychological trick, it really does nothing.
                    Possible solution to foreigners issue
                    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

                      You sure 'bout that? Cuz some people really really believe it does something (massive), and point out here as source...I beg to differ.

                        What? Its intention is as straightforward as it gets - you rate your desire to play with your teammate again. Damn, that's so tricky, Volvo is toying with our minds man.

                          I know, but that explanation is from when the system was implemented a long time ago.
                          Recently I forum post from a valve employee saying how the star system will be implemented in matchmaking soon. I believe this is the explanation for the drop of quality in games that many have been experiencing in the past 2 months.

                            Yeah, whomever are in charge of the matchmaking and reporting system in Dota 2 are either fresh graduates from computer science or experts on Swahili literature who couldn't find a better job.

                            The game is currently playable only if you play it with friends and known people. Otherwise, it's playing the roulette.

                              Don't worry mate thousands of us in the same bucket.

                              My dotabuff score is over 5000. I am in the top 1000 with plenty of heroes. But my mmr just drops. i am at 3500 at the moment. Only in the last 2 weeks i lost 800. Volvo doesnt care about how bad their mmr system neither this site. Sell ur stuff and leave this piece of crap game alone. I only play techies now. FTW
