  • Dota 2 ranked system sucks


    I was 1 year ago almost immortal (1 win till this level) but now all has changed and now I play in crusader rank. Most of the games I have 5 supports (i play 90% of games support), often games finishing with score 2 25, sb making basher and in general ppl have no basic understanding of the game. When I play carry, I often have incredible score like 28 2, so seems I play way better for my rank. Still I like to play support and even as a support I have better score in general.

    So I am not happy with a current system, I don't like to be in Crusader rank with people who make basher on sb and pick 5 supports, or making vanguard when enemy have 100% magic damage or pipe when 4 from 5 are physical.

    I am really thinking to find someone who can pick me up to the normal immortal level because I cannot win the game solo, people have 0 12 score at first 10 minutes and flaming 100% of the game. Simply to force ppl to go as 5 when all enemy are dead, impossible. Ppl have no understanding at all. Why am I here?

    And update this forum, I cannot even paste a screenshot in this forum from 90-s (i find too boringto press 3000 buttons just to upload a screenshot via attachments instead of ctrl+v like in most of modern forums).

    x doubt. You dont go from immortal level base knowledge and mech skill to crusader and not get out of it in a matter of weeks. You would have like 80% winrate.

      Sharing the fact that I've also been wrongfully banned from Ranked for 1 year. Dota Plus' Performance shows that I'm playing at Immortal range today.
      However last year I was calibrated at Ancient as I just came back to Dota 2 after approx 6 months of inactivity, and I was just adapting to the changes like outpost and all. Now that I'm well adapted to the changes, I am playing closer to my usual performance. But Valve decided to think that I'm boosting.

      Tried appealing but they said the decision was final. Seems rather like they didn't bother to clarify any doubts that they have in relation to their assumptions.

      Fine example of a game that never really cared about their community. Just look at where the support and Valve's involvement in the community are.
      Yours Sincerely,

        You dont go from immortal level knowledge to crusader or ancient. Not unless your mmr was heavily inflated. pos 4-5 players tend to be carried into higher tiers passively. The recent mmr change with core/support must have had big impact.
