  • Bot abuse brand new bought account just played in my ranked mmr game (4.9k average)

    Steam ID of the user in question:
    If you check his dotabuff you will see captains modes with bot games where the other team is feeding mid.

    Somehow the account is 4.7k.

    Match 3034005818
    He does nothing which would indicate he is a 4.7k player, such as helping our mid, killing bottom lane, or even farming the jungle effectively. He bought two wards and placed them both top in the early game.

    It's obvious he recently bought this account, ruining ranked matchmaking for anyone unfortunate enough to be in his game.

    You could easily write an algorithm to check for captains mode "feeding frenzy" games which would automatically pass those accounts to your admins who could then ban those accounts.

    Thank you for your time.
