  • Will Dota 2 ever have a ladder system?

    Discuss ^^

    Its really frustrating to play against random skill level players.. If something like bronze, silver, gold, plat, diamond, master, grandmaster status can give you good games based on your skill it would be great. the other day i saw a quantic premade lineup win over some random solo qs 51-6. this is a serious defect in mm.. if there was a ladder instead of just plain mm this would have been averted.. there are no cons in a ladder system imo

      It will be great to have ladder system before final version so that in beta we could check it up and you get some feedback. And It is very important 'cause many people get aggressive while playing just because of too different skills - I think this situations just spoil the game and make your present and future fans choose another game...

              Well they already have "Skill Level" as a filter in replays with Low, Medium, High. They also have ranking that's currently disabled, but still in the UI.

              That's probably a good indication that they will be doing something like a ladder and taking it further.

                Ladder with different divisions, would be right on the money.

                  A ladder with potential prizes for the top players (maybe invitation to a tournament would be grand)!

                    There's nothing to discuss you don't understand how matchmaking works. Calling it something different will not change things they will resolve once the player pool is larger.

                      Why would you think there won't be a ladder with those already in place?
                      How does DotA 2 calculate your "skill level"? By win/loose ratio?

                        There's a hidden matchmaking system, similar to hon and lol (not sure on the details though)

                        but what the op is talking about is a ladder , like warcraft 3 right?

                          There is already a ladder !! (It used to be possible to check your ranking place, but it got disabled). So even when you play right now, you are ranked somewhere! You just cant see it.

                          Why cant you see it?
                          People will stats whoring! This is a big problem in LoL or HoN right now! They will f.e. stay in base and AFk, so they will not get more deaths for their k/d rartio etc. No ranking, no stats whoring, more fun!!! That is why you can only see the wins of other players and not loses or win ratio etc.

                            ... How would having your rating visible lead to stat whoring? With only rating being visible people would want to just win, not sit in the base afk, they would do all they can to get their rating higher by WINNING. If you're trolling then 10/10.

                              He meant if someone got say 10/0 k/d then they would play cautiously so they don't mess up their ratio. Seems a bit silly to me though.

                              I don't have any problem with ladders, especially if they are reset after fixed time periods so people always get a new chance to do better.
