Has the mute system reduced RACISM? or increased it?

    Now with mute racist ppl report your account for no reason but bczus its a racist reason so they are affecting the victims game on a whole new level...
    So to me its not about increase/decrease of it but the impact on victims of it has increased dramatically
    Yup, the manual mute was a perfect solution for com abuse, this mute system is just giving a club to every player, some abuse it, some dont

    You guys need to just be a little bit more mature and RESPECT the mute system. When you learn a little RESPECT you'll be ok.

    Get used to the mute system it isn't going anywhere.

    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.
    In their defense, I don't believe they were racist.

    Could they have just been dickheads? Sure, of course they could have. But I also think they were likely just some people who were fed up with people who didn't speak English but insist to queue for English language/US servers, and just angrily called for reports.

    There is nothing valve can do about it unless stupid russians stop typing russian in english only eu games and stop playing like an idiot.
    perfect example of discrimination ^
    I understand your frustration (Yes, I am a US citizen) however, since when did it become ALL people from a certain country who suck? I HAVE seen good russians at play before in the US servers, and although I cant understand them, the chat wheel is usually enough to get my point across.

    OT: The mute system is "OK". It's not perfect nor do I think it will ever be. However, I'm not too sure what Valve does at this point. The system doesn't care too much about who is reported, as it seems more of the guys that are rude are just gang reporting people who don't agree with them, just playing "not up to par" with the rest of the team, or in you case: race. Me personally I haven't seen it improve nor decline much but it seems most people have seen an increase so it's at least an issue that Valve should be looking into.

    +1 Thread, make sense, have jumped to same conclusions, especially since that I see even more foreign languages on eu servers.

    He is not racist, just a douchebag, that's got nothing to do with language X)

    Tiny's throw is not targetable, meaning unlike KotL's teleport and Io's teleport, it won't be shut off by turning off assistance.

    The mute system neither reduced Racism nor increased it. It has always been the way it is.
    You see Russian, you mute them.
    You see Brazillian, you mute them.
    You see Chinese? well, they keep their mouth shut and play the game

    I'm guessing you are a native speaker? try and pretend an accent some time when you play and come back to me after 5 games or so





    And about that tiny, I'm guessing that CM didnt know where the button to turn off assistance was?
