  • "Player Report" appeal?

    This is more of a complaint as well as needing help finding a solution than it is an actual problem with the game, but maybe you can help me anyway? (tl;dr version at the end)

    Just got out of a game (match ID#236474267) in which a user chose Wisp, then repeatedly kept using his ultimate to teleport his teammates to unpassable terrain (e.g. the rock above and left of top rune). As much as I tried to explain this to the other team, they wouldn't listen or understand. I couldn't talk the enemy Queen of Pain into teleporting up so the team can see and I couldnt talk the enemy visage into sending up a familiar to see. Despite my protests, the "trolling" wisp successfully managed to convince the (clearly stupid) opposing team that I was ruining the game by farming all game and "going afk." Of course, when I pointed out that I hadn't leveled in 20 minutes and I was still talking, the other team wouldnt listen. To go along with the trolling, the wisp would play the "I'm new " card to gain sympathy from the other team. This caused their queen of pain to keep making comments like "its ok, I know wisp is hard to play. Don't worry, I won't report." By the end of the game, our "trolling" wisp managed to convince several of the players on the opposing team to report me for "going afk and ruining the game" just because I was stuck due to Wisp's ultimate. Instead of reporting the person that intentionally ruined the game, I ended up being the one reported for my "afk" even though I was there and stuck out the whole match.

    tl;dr Is there some way to appeal low priority/player reports when they are so blatantly and obviously bad reports/bad bans that result in legitimate players getting banned or moved to low priority while the offenders still roam free?

    I tried searching the forum and couldn't find anything regarding a place to appeal priority... but this is such an unfair case of reporting/low priority that I had to at least do something about it. If you need anymore information, just ask! Thanks for the help!

    -Ryan

    Little more information to add: I went back through his past games, and he does this all the time. Some examples:
    Match ID#232931058
    Match ID#232916776
    Match ID#232862398

    There were other games he's played as wisp also, but after going 3/3 on the replays I watched, I just assumed that's what he always does. Either way... I'm not sure what the banning point is, but hopefully he gets it soon..

    There isn't one. 10,000+ keys going out daily/weekly, he'll just buy a new one for less than a nickel on the Marketplace (or for free anywhere else) and make a new steam account and keep doing it. Valve has little control over their game anymore, it seems like. Rampant report abuse, griefers, etc. Have to love that they don't care about anything but the marketplace or the big tournaments to farm money off the marketplace (e.g. the Compendium). Why care about the gameplay for the average player when your 'pro' players are all you really care about.

        Is that right? I haven't followed the goings-on with valve much, but this is the impression I get as well. I understand it's just the beta, and I hope they fix the stuff like this before the actual release, but I can't see how they would.. at least without investing a large amount of resources... I'm just shit outta luck then I guess.

        Dota2 has the disable help? I did -disablehelp hoping they brought the command over from Dota 1, and I tried -unstuck as well, both to no avail.

        Still ISO other opinions
