  • REDESIGN WATCH (too high to follow) and LEARN (basics to understand)

    Inside the Dota 2 game, there are WATCH and LEARN for players. I think those who just joined the Dota 2 game should not attempt to follow the game-playing strategies spectate through the WATCH. These people are still new to the game (some or mostly never play since Dota-Allstars) when they are joining the game without stable knowledge and experience. Imagine if you team with young players who have low knowledge and inexperience. Their way of thinking usually might be affected a lot by the games watched through the WATCH, and not the efforts they put on themselves to learn through the LEARN.

    If the game developer is allowing new players who are using their new accounts (account can be purchased or boosted) to watch the game without caring about the basics of the game through LEARN, then it's very difficult for the young and older players to cooperate in the game because their styles of thinking for any strategy during team-battle can be a lot of different.

    I have a big question to Valve, why don't redesign WATCH for multi-tiers when newbies want to watch and learn from players who have closer tier to them? If you design WATCH as current way by encouraging the newbies to learn from high tiers (especially Immortals) when they are spectating games, then you only affect their way of thinking about the strategy or game playing to be used by players who are different tiers than the spectated games.

    Conclusion is, both these, WATCH and LEARN must be redesigned where WATCH to have multi-tiers games to watch and LEARN is a compulsory missions to be completed in the game. Without completing the missions of LEARN, then all "Ranked" or "Unranked" matchmaking should be locked no matter you are "Divine" or "Immortal" or whatever tier !!
