  • Matchmaking and Games

    My last probably 100 games have all been absolute crap. This is either due to the fact that the enemy team picks the most broken, no-skill-require heroes or because my team can't speak the same language as me. Of those 100 games or so, probably 40 of them I can't talk to my teammates because they're Peruvian. The other will either be 1-2 god awful butt-buddies looking to troll, or because frankly my team is dysfunctional. To regard the speech issue, Valve desperately needs to implant a chat recorder into the lobbies. This would see what players are most dominant with which language. This would also stop Peruvians from looking for American servers. To regard the broken heroes issue, it's not that hard. Some heroes need absolutely ridiculous nerfs. For example, Death Prophet. Spirit siphon is literally Pugna's ultimate on steroids. A valid nerf to it would be to give Death Prophet 80% of her normal movement while one is being used. Then decreased her movement speed by 1-2% for every additional siphons being casted. And the mana cost for the ability would be changed from 55 to maybe like 90 (it's not that bad, she get's a ridiculous mana pool anyways). These are just some general changes that desperately need to take place in Dota 2 because as of right now, the game is going downhill and downhill fast.
