  • Commendations Pop Up

    Right now I feel like hardly anyone is using the commendation system and only using the report system. I think a good way to fix this is to have a small pop up [akin to when one of your friends logs into a game on steam] for commendations you receive that tells you:

    *You've just received a commendation.
    *Who sent it to you.
    *Which categories were selected and if there was a message included.

    If you did this I feel like a lot more people would use the system because people like to receive praise and this will make people feel better when they play dota which would be good because a lot of people get really angry at this video game. Hopefully this is still in the spirit that you intended for this system, the anonymity is a good idea but because of it no one is really using the system because everyone wants something tacit and tactile that they can see when they put forth even the smallest amount of effort. Thanks for making this wonderful game and please have a nice day!

      Probably cause it doesn't add anything to the game.

      +1 to OP's post though. I see nothing wrong with his suggestion.

          Reports and commends are kind of badly implemented. People will always take the time to report but more often than not they'll forget about commends (tells you about human nature, heh).

          I think making commend buttons restricted to ONE button in the scoreboard or somewhere in the chat history (maybe next to the username?) would give people a better incentive to commend.

          Hell, reworking the entire system into an "upvote" and "downvote" type of thing may seem brutal but it could work. All in all it's about who you want in your game and who you don't want in your game. Reports can then be restriced to griefing and only griefing which would give a much smaller sample of punishable cases (hence better reviews of those cases) and a better way to punish those cases: instant permanent bans.

          I don't feel like reporting people who talk shit or whine and bitch at their team, since that's a ton of people. But I'd gladly give them a 'thumbs down' so that it shows up on their profile and maybe matches them with other people who have a similar rating.

            I don't quite understand what you're suggesting but is it something like fame system in maplestory? where you can just +1 or -1 people? Keep in mind I haven't played maplestory for years so it may or may not be different now.

            If this is your suggestion then I find it a terrible idea because there will be alot more -1's going out than +1's. People paid like some small amount of in-game money for +1's in maple which you can't do in dota 2 so there would be a lot of -1's from people that think you played badly and as much +1's as there are commends right now.

              I never played Maple Story but yeah, basically a +1 -1 system. Sad that it doesn't work according to what you said

              Point is there are three big flaws with the current system

              - Reports are handed out for way too many things, voice / text abuse shouldn't qualify for reports, since everyone is somewhat an asshole.
              - People take the time to report but never commend for obvious reasons, you're EXPECTED to behave nicely with other people.
              - People who get reported aren't punished heavily like they deserve because LPQ needs to handle all types of ill behavior.

                If you could commend after exiting the game, it would be cool. Many times I forget to do it before disconnecting.

                  As annoying as forgetting to commend good players is (I've done it more than a few times), it was intentionally changed this way after chat channels were flooded with 'COMMEND ME 4x I COMMEND U 4x', presumably to make commends actually have some significance.

                    yeah but people just swap 4-commends for 4-commends

                      Just allow players to commend other players in their recent matches.

                        Oh yeah. Thats a good idea if recent means 1-2 matches.

                          What? Seriously? Now I feel like an asshole...

                          On a more serious hand, voice and text abuse should be reported, not ommitted. Playing a game with someone that is shouting all the time "what a f noob" is not certainly the nicest experience. Yes, I and other players do behave noobishly sometimes. I do not deny that I've not been playing much of DoTA 2 in comparison to other players. But think about it in other way. It's not our (noobs) fault that you were put with us in the team. Obviously the enemy team has the same situation (noobs with pro players). And now that we're stuck together, how about winning the game together, instead of insulting each other? Bah, no, that's too easy to think about it, it's better to say that everyone is somewhat an asshole...

                          +1 and -1 system overall is a good idea, but could be abused by people giving -1s for nothing. I think that maybe a better idea would be if you were actually required to recommend or nope every player that has played in the match with you. On the end you wouldn't be able to leave the match without grading other people's activity.

                            It has no use and even without use there's too much commend me texts popupin up in 'lover' matchmaking. It doesn't server any function cause of the fake commendation. You can't judge player by the quantity of Commends he has + if it would server a purpose then it would be even worse.
