    • fletcher? Who is it?

      Comment


      • fletcher is a guy from Valve who said that everyone who got put into a seperate matchmaking pool due to using Sandboxie with Dota 2 can play normally after 2 month. 2 month have passed but it seems you still can't find games. That's what he posted:

        "fletcher:
        Players who repeatedly engage in activities significantly harmful to the community are put
        into a separate matchmaking pool for two months. Players who run multiple instances are only
        segregated as long as they continue to run multiple instances. If you think you have been
        segregated merely for running multiple instances, then stop running multiple instances for
        a day or two, and then try to find a match again. You should find that you are back in the
        ordinary matchmaking pool with the rest of the community."

              You are NOT getting banned because you played 40+ heros.
              If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

                    My best guess is, that you dogged to much games against "bad" players/matchups. But im not a 100% sure.

                        No, it should be a temp ban/ prevention from searching.

                        And (as far as i can tell) it looks like, valve changed there mind and uses a different time/game/method than posted by fletcher 2months back, now.

                                I assume this is your main account (though I'm not certain):
                                http://dotabuff.com/players/5150808

                                Your smurf:
                                http://dotabuff.com/players/129130503
                                Fairly sure this is an alternative account since there is a 2 month break and a 6 month break.

                                Both accounts pick slark fairly often and they are both called 1234
                                Also steam profiles are private.

                                In the beginning you often played with yourself. How come?

                                and many many more.

                                You also had games with 1345:
                                http://dotabuff.com/players/113504762
                                I checked his friendlist and you are not friends with him anymore?
                                (You had also games with "just" and "friends" who you are also not friends with anymore. There is also a "--" guy. You 4 used to party together a lot in the beginning.)


                                What's up with these games:
                                24:03 game: 49/0/4
                                32:25 game: 56/0/10
                                21:52 game: 39/0/10
                                25:55 game: 31/0/8
                                I only picked here the extreme games. There are many, many games that were clear stomps. But what makes me wonder. How come you can make so many kills in a game that don't last long? I occassionally also absolutely stomp games with Meepo and I'm not getting as much kills as you. And I can play Meepo decently.

                                You are definitely hiding something.

                                Also being shadowbanned is not only linked to Sandboxie. MMR boosting and things which are significantly harmful to the community can get you shadowbanned for a long time.

                                I have only this much information at hand. The fact the you have your Steam profiles on private makes it a bit hard for the normal user to see what's exactly is going on over there. But someone who is working at Valve. Someone who can see all your alternate accounts can probably prove that you did abuse the MM system.

                                So I don't believe that you never used any exploits.

                                Some relevant dev quotes:
