Has the mute system reduced RACISM? or increased it?

    I have actually had someone tell me they were going to report me and the other Chinese guy for queuing up on the US servers while speaking Chinese, conveniently ignoring the fact that I typed out an entire paragraph worth of English at the start of the game and then telling the people on the enemy team to report me too.

    These racist jackholes are the kind of people Valve thinks are competent enough to police their own community. How anyone on the Dota 2 dev team didn't raise their hand and say that a self policing community on the internet was a completely stupid idea is beyond me.
    not speaking english at all times = deserves mute. but still the system is a piece of shit.

      well instead of annoying other people with their spanish bullshit, they could visit a school first or atleast shut the fuck up.

          Once, if you actually have the brains to use the search function and figure it out yourself.




          Probably not.
          You can avoid the mute system by playing on multiple accounts simultaneously. If you play on more than one account at a time, it will let your reports decay and the "algorithm" will disregard the reports made against you, which are likely baseless anyway. Do not play more than 2 games per day on any one account and the chances of you being muted will decrease drastically. Use as many accounts as is necessary, but do not exceed 2 games.
          DONT ACCUMULATE GAMES ON ONE ACCOUNT, IT WILL GET MUTED.

            I'm one of the people who reports Brazilians.

            Not just any Brazilian, though. He has to be:

            1.) Raging in chat because no one understands him;
            2.) An idiot, and/or;
            3/) Screaming nonstop into his microphone.

                i can see why you're against mute system.. it works really well against you.

                edit: btw, this guy has started so many thread about mute system. The same pointless thread. All thread has different sub-topic but the main topic will always be complaining about the mute system.

                i think you need to use the search function more. Or maybe you're too busy trying to flame the other, no wonder you will get muted after 2 games.

                  i mean i am from germany but when someone else starts to talk german im obviously not gonna do the same. other people would be pissed off and have every right to be. ENGLISH ONLY = speak english or stfu, otherwise enjoy chatbans.

                    I don't believe English only servers exist. You only get an option as to which server you wish to connect to when playing, and what language you prefer. However, it is unfortunate that there are only 3 options available and that is "English, Chinese, and Russian." There are more than 3 languages of course out there. What do you do if you don't know either of those 3? Don't play?

                          Riiight. Never going to happen. Getting mad won't help the situation either.

                            Well thats no racism mate, thats common sense X) reporting people for things like that is 100% fair, however a lot of people report for:

                            1° Accent, I experience that every day
                            2° A bit of spanish/other language every now and then, when I'm playing in party with a friend, and I go in lane with him, sometimes I tell him information only relevant to the lane to him in spanish, but information relevant to all the team I say it in english
                            3° NOT speaking english, or barely and having difficulties to communicate: Thats not those players fault, thats valve's fault, DotA2 is played WORLDWIDE...how many languages does valve offer as option? 3...how many languages there is?.....

                            Okay, I know we are not going to have a list of 8309840802083 languages including mayan and such!, but at least the top 10 or so
                            Make a NON automated report system.
                            I would rather wait 10 minutes for a balanced, fun and exciting match that will last 1+ hours. Than wait 10 seconds for a poorly balanced crapmatch that will end in 30- minutes
                            Valve, How I'm I supposed to respect certain boundaries to prevent a mute if I dont know them because they are different for each and every person on each and every game I play?
                            The only type of player that dislikes having his stats public are the players that suck and cheaters

                              That's Volvo's fault in the first place.

                              You tick english, you speak english. That's my policy. The UN voted english as world language and you can be lucky it was english. It was one vote short for german, and even germans can't speak german. That should tell you something.

                                It may have reduced the amount of flaming, but big part of people who are banned didn't do anything wrong. The system is easily abused and people are scared of saying anything. So since there's less talking there's less flaming. That's absolutely wrong approach. Mute system should be remove.
