  • TOP 3 reasons this game is COMPLETELY BUSTED!!

    1. Region Locking
    2. The Matchmaking System
    3. Reporting


    It is at a point where this 3 issues are making players leave, and I'm trying hard to stick it out for fixes, but I don't see them coming. My other friends don't play anymore and left for other MOBA's. You are definitely losing North America players because of these issues.


    1. Region Locking:

    This is not a hard concept to understand. English players are sick and tired of being paired with non english players. It is frustrating and not fun. There is no team aspect involved this way. This is a priority issue and needs to be addressed immediately. You are loosing a lot of players because of this. This is also causing a lot of people leaving games. This is also a cause of a lot of people having big lag issues and disconnects because they are not in the North America region. People are tired of constantly pausing games.

    2. The Matchmaking System:

    I really don't know who wants to take responsibility for the poorly coded matchmaking logic used in Dota 2. Queuing solo should not be putting me up against full pre-mades. This is absolutely ridiculous. Matchmaking should be even for the amount of people queuing on each side. They should also be similar levels. The matchmaking system as is now, needs complete recoding.

    3. Reporting:

    Reporting is a complete joke. There is no verification on reports. Just going on the 'honor system' and giving people 2 reports a week is one the the dumbest things I have ever heard and experienced. You can also be communication reported by people while not even say anything in a game, and when you go to immediately queue for another game, you are muted. You need a way of verifying reports, or remove it all-together. IT IS COMPLETELY BROKEN!! Seriously, how can you even push this type of reporting. Are you seriously happy with your work here?




    These are just the top 3 reasons, but there are many others that need attention, including many bugs. People are now taking steps with 'Band-aid solutions' to these problems; ie: Reporting all non-english players on engish servers, as well as making multiple steam accounts to play because people are tired of playing with all non-english players and tired of getting banned for it.

    ADDRESS THESE ISSUES IMMEDIATELY!!!

    Region locking is absurd. Don't bring that up again, I agree that if you queue in english you have the right to be queued with other english speaking players, but region locking is not a viable solution. That's my opinion of course...

            Yeah, that's the main reason. We live in a globalized world, region locking is a step backwards.

              Unfortunately Valve will never change any of the above.

              That would make anyone that is sane happy. Valve only wants to please the "welfare-24/7-forum-Valve-D-riders" and casuals.

                Well guess what, you are luck for being from NA, you can pick 2 relatively close servers. In SA things are worse, spanish and brazilian have to be together, imagine if in a every game you play there is 5 russians, that is the SA server.
                Coupled with a poor server, i have met brazilian players that have over 200ms in their own country. But there is more, the server has 1 day down and nobody says anything about it. Now SA players are migrating to US east and are destroying that server, a lot of players with 300ms cannot perform even close to the NA guys of the same level.

                  wtf are you talking about matching against full premades theres a SOLO QUEUE option for a reason. Region locking will never happen there is not a game where it has region locking period. The matchmaking system is fine only people who suck and dont realize it think the system sucks.

                            Not realistic. I do agree that we should be getting paired with English speakers, but there's no way to control that. I've met plenty of people from South America, SE Asia and Europe regions that speak English just fine and I have no problem with them queuing for English in NA (ping issues notwithstanding). Point here is a region lock is unrealistic. If I'm on vacation in China or some such, I shouldn't be forced to play with people who only speak Mandarin.

                            Also, disconnects are part of the experience of playing online. Shit happens, man. Not everyone has a super-solid internet connection, so sometimes you just may have to pause. 2,500 games in, I'm pretty patient. I'd recommend you relax. If you don't like the people you're being matchmade with, maybe you should make some friends and party up. Problems avoided.

                            You can always solo queue. If you go into regular matchmaking, there is a chance you will be paired with or against parties. Also, your complaining supposes that pre-mades will be...better than the players on your team? I've found that to not be the case quite often. Being in a party only guarantees that people will talk to each other; it doesn't mean they're better players about to destroy you. Pre-mades are not the harbingers of an asswhooping coming your way.

                            According to Valve, it's working.

                            http://blog.dota2.com/2013/05/communication-reports/

                            Perhaps you can re-examine your conduct and behavior in these matches. It's pretty rare that someone who's not flaming and not feeding will get reported. Because as you said, reports are limited. You're not going to waste them on someone simply because they lost their lane or can't catch their footing in a match and aren't doing it on purpose. People are by and large being reported for being short-tempered asshats that are making the games wholly un-enjoyable for others. Truly, there's nothing worse than spending 30+ minutes in a match with a genuine asshole. You sure you're not one of those? Because I mean... only ~1% of the entire player base is muted. A very small portion of the base is what's making the community hard to enjoy. Check your own behavior and see what you can't fix so that you don't have anymore run-ins with the mute system.

                            Pretty sure Dota2 is growing, not shrinking. "Losing NA players" is just silly. Maybe losing your friends who prefer other MOBAs...but your friends are not a reflection of the trending as a whole.

                            I would have said to them, "get better." Because that's what it boils down to.

                              I've seen that reaction elsewhere with other games and it never helped anyone. When people quit, the game dies, no matter what the community says.
