  • Matchmaking Explained

    This is how matchmaking works in DotA 2:

    Game 1: Queue with friendly team, 2 people pick supports and one buys courier while the other buys wards. You have 2 carries on your team and a powerful temafight hero. You all coordinate well and win the game quickly.

    Game 2: Queue with Brazillians.


    Volvo, there's a reason why people get muted: they are raging at the idiots your matchmaking is putting them with.

    Note: I am not muted, though I am pissed off about my third game in a row with a party of brazillians. I ask the support to buy courier and I get "Go fuck yourself, buy your own courier". When I am playing Lone Druid I don't want to buy the fucking courier.

    And this is why you add the cool people in pubs and stack with them.

      A good portion of the raging in the servers is due to the poor work of the MM system
      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

            If the game is not designed to be playable without a stack, shouldn't there be a note about this on the Steam page?

              No, I play only in NA East/West and the pieces of shit that live in your country (no offense to you in particular) invade the server like a plague.

                Well,we always restart finds if match find time goes beyond 3 minutes.Thats a very legit way of getting balanced matches.Eric himself said that the time taken to find a match is inversly proportional to balance of skill.

                  Problem is when you do that you lose priority over other players, Sometimes I've been doing that waiting 4-5 mins, every time, and in over half an hour I dont find ONE game

                  So it would be nice if you could choose how far you are willing to let your range go, so that you can leave it searching for 8-12 mins and the range will stay the same and you wont lose priority cancelling the search just because you want a balanced game

                      You honestly believe that Brazilians never queue on U.S servers?
                      We need a player review system like Overwatch for DotA 2. Get real people to judge communication abuse, intentional skill abuse, and intentional feeding.

                        Russians, Brazillians, Chinese, etc. We somehow get the lot on Australian servers. I don't have a problem with the people, I have a problem with their ping.

                            As a Brazilian I don't see a good point for playing in US servers; Ping rises to 280 / 300.

                            The only possible explanation is to avoid Latin American players who has bad pings and speaks spanishit.
