    I never understood this. LoL's development is pretty much based around selling cosmetics.

    You could argue DOTA2 is as well, but we're already treated with a completely free2play game with all heroes unlocked.

    "Sensible" isn't ripping off your customers to unlock heroes. That's quite the opposite.

    • Valve knight detected. Dota2 did not have a choice in its business model anyway. If valve made you pay/earn heroes, people would have stayed at Dota 1.

      Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

        They could have made it a $30 one-time payment and people would flock over simply because of Matchmaking + leaver penalty....

                • And my game balance is atrocious, Right after calibration winning 7-3. My mmr did not change one bit, but now i get 12 game lose streak. I get 4 games with intentional feeder, 2 games with Crusaders (who were solo queued)??????? (In an Archon game, oh and yeh im archon btw now even though my cali mmr was legend before). Lol what the fuck is going on?

                  I am now at the lowest mmr I've been since it was implemented and my game quality is exceptionally bad. The amount of toxicity is amazing and people are throwing the game often in first 5 mins from idiots rage each other about picks etc.

                  What the fuck valve?

                  • Oh you're one of those people who think rank actually means something anymore.
                    Ranked mode has always been gambling and smurfs. You get punished if only one member of your team feeds even if you performed well. Valves has chosen to focus on the 5k+ mmr ranges where only 10% of players are and since those players are all old players by now they have neglected the user experience for new players.

                    Rather than making the games harder as the brackets increase like making it the standard for in 0-4k games for no fog of war and 5 v 5 carries encouraged they instead introduced Turbo mode.
                    Now all my friends who are new to the game only play turbo because they actually have fun and games are quick and the toxicity is non existent there it's amazing and they have very little interest in ranked now.

                    Take my advice and stop playing ranked since with a dead forum and Dota losing players fast due to being cancer for new players with half of those new players being smurfs that's the best message you can send or play unranked if you actually want to have fun. Ranked as I learned the hard way only leads to more addiction as we try to trick ourselves into thinking that playing better will lead to gaining mmr which it can't because there are 4 other people on the team outside of your control and the fact that the support role is forced on players which nobody wants or often does right makes Dota ranked anti-fun in every way.

                    I have done my best to provide solutions to those problems but at this point nobody gives a damn about this game, the cancer that this game, it's old elitist player base and community have become is too big now to change. Valve has chosen to support their old and dying fan base instead of getting with the times for new players and that's why their user base is dying.

                          • WP !!!
                            Dota 2 Update - June 29th, 2018
                            - Added a ban phase. Each team can nominate one hero that is guaranteed to be banned.
                            - Heroes now incrementally load during the pick phase. This should help reduce cases in which low-spec machines timeout and disconnect while loading.
