  • One-Sided Matchmaking Game Log

    This thread is to compile a list of all matches which you felt were completely one-sided.

    If you want to post an unbalanced match in this thread you will need to post in this specific format:

    Match ID: xxxxxxxxxx

    Description: Why do you think this was one-sided? Were there any particularly strong or weak players? If so, were both teams in the same situation? Did someone say something like it's their first time to play a hero? Was one of the team dynamics off (wrong heroes picked). Basically, give as much info as possible to help the devs investigate.

    Each Match ID needs to have a separate description.


    Remember, we are looking for completely one-sided games. If it was only a bit one-sided then please don't post it in here. Also, if someone was intentional feeding or disconnected/AFK/fountain camping then please don't report those here. We are looking for specific issues with the matchmaking algorithms only.

    All posts that don't match the above format will be deleted.
    Please read Common Discussions, Common Suggestions, Common Technical Issues, Common Bugs, and do a website search prior to making any new thread.

    All the games below were played on EU servers (east + west). I was solo queueing on AP mode only.

    I can't make very detailed description for every game, because I play a lot and too many of them is very one sided. Story is always very similar and imo most of unbalance comes from stacks who gank and roam from the very begining. All this is caused because most heroes is very weak early and have limited possibilities which is why early roaming and ganking can make game very snowbally. From my experience of 1500+ games, stacks with ~51+% win ratio tend to gank a lot from the very begining and usually have good map control as well (on top of that using teleport scroll to help allies etc) while in solo q, most players play their own game and often doesnt even bother to call mia, pick runes not even ping. Chatwheel is almost never used and personally I find it annoying that it's not related to numbers like in CS 1.6.

    There's simply no way that solo player can protect himself from early 2-3 man smoke ganks who have good cooperation if his team wont help him nor even call mia. In theory that solo q player could buy normal wards + sentry every 2min but in reality this would delay his item build way too much and it would make him very vulnerable to lane harras which is why it's not effective and that's why good supports can change the game a lot in the early stage of the game. So we have that 2-3 man smoke gank coming every few mins + rune and map control. After 10min difference in gold and xp get so high that one team isn't able to fight outside of their tower which limit their farming and put them more behind while enemy is keep getting more and more advatanges.

    Ofc smoke ganks aren't used only by stacks, but it's very unlikely for solo q players who didn't played before with each other to do such gank more than once or twice. From my experience 9/10 times it's used by stacks and on top of that it's usually bigger gank (more than 2 players roaming).

    This is beta and imo we should at least test matchmaking with real solo queue for ~2-3 weeks and compare results. Real solo q would imo reduce amount of snowballing and open more possibility to comeback later on, due to similar amount of missunderstanding on both sides.

    Here's just few games which imo were totaly one sided.

    1. Match ID: 105663102

    [feedback] 8min in to the game Radiant team started to rage quit because they were not happy about SF and Timber dying a lot early game. Im not sure if they were actually that bad or just had bad game, but they've made some serious mistakes over and over again.

    2. Match ID: 105636660

    [feedback] Radiant had a lot more cooperation than Dire, early ganking and roaming resulted in snowballing and very one sided game.

    3. Match ID: 105431248

    [feedback] PA from Dire was playing very poorly, started with bad items and tried to melee farm against bane + wl instead of keeping range and using his dagger to last hit. Later sold all his items and started trolling. Radiant had more cooperation as well, lot's of wards and early roaming + ganking in to Dire jungle.

    4. Match ID: 104926840

    [feedback] Radiant totaly dominated Dire, difference in cooperation was just huge.

    5. Match ID: 104837479

    [feedback] Dire had a lot better cooperation and dominated game easily.

    6. Match ID: 104781771

    [feedback] Lycan and Warlock from Dire was playing very poorly, Radiant won this game easily

    7. Match ID: 104671215

    [feedback] Dire dominated easily, and Luna from Radiant went afk. Lina was also playing poorly.

    8. Match ID: 104628102

    [feedback] Dire had very tryhard stack and dominated the game easily.

    9. Match ID: 104235459

    [feedback] Dire had a lot more cooperation and dominated the game. Zeus from Radiant rage quited in the middle of the game tho.

    10. Match ID: 103972920

    [feedback] Radiant had a lot more cooperation and won easily.

    11. Match ID: 103935789

    [feedback] Lina died a lot bottom and later intentionaly destroyed Naix midas recipe. Naix got mad and went afk. I hope you ban those trolls for years! Game eneded in 20min...

    12. Match ID: 103452639

    [feedback] Dire had some very coordinated stack and dominated easily.

    13. Match ID: 102515052

    [feedback] AM was playing very poorly. Radiant had much more cooperation and won without problems.

    14. Match ID: 102390415

    [feedback] Dire had a lot more cooperation and won easily (20min stomp)

    Read this if you want to know why so many games is very one sided:

      Match ID : 104199496 SCORE 2/29

      The DIRE just dominated the game from the start. They are 5 man stack I assume they're talking on skype or vent . Pushing,ganking as a team they just dominated the lanes. The Radiant had so bad players can't even contest a kill.
      I was solo q. and i got vs 5 man stack . Thats not alright when we have 200k+ players online . I've lost like 70 % of my last games because of stacks. You just can't solo win the game even if you're having a good game.. Its a team game..

        the gold/minutes and exp/minutes difference is too big, dire consist of 3 hard carry, yet they win the early war, tide is keep feeding, am can't farm at all, 30 minutes bf no other equip while the enemies sniper can manage to get good item.


        • #5

          This was the most imbalanced match-up of my career so far. We had a nyx mid against zeus, who lost his lane, now i was at first angry with nyx, who didnt level his spiked carapace before mana burn and didnt gank most of the midgame. However, the enemy team's Zeus, was a cut above the rest. Upon inspecting his game history I noticed he has been queued with and against professional dota players. Meanwhile on my team, nyx, I must insist, did not know how to play his character.

          We got our behinds handed to us. And our team had absolutely no innate co-ordination. The OM disconnected.

          Upon inspecting the hours played of each player, everyone had similar hours played. With two exceptions. The first of which is the enemy spirit breaker, who has had around 40 matches total played, and the Zeus, who has around 1,600 matches played.

          The level of skill difference between each team can be likened to the distance between earth and the countless galaxies that twinkle in our night sky.

          Valve, I really do love you as a company, but the idea of keeping each player at around 50% is frivolous, as a player base, we just want games of equal skill. Not a team of scrubs to fight against one game, then dota-based lifeforms the next.

            Match id: 105535874

            My team was pretty low skilled, but the enemy team seemed to be high skill. By looking them up on dotabuff i found out that theyre most of the time playing as a four man stack. Obviously they had mics explaining the damn good coordination in teamfights. On top of that one of them was lvl 78 while our teams highest lvl was 42. Since i read that mm balance is supposed to balance out the high lvl players first, im wondering how this is possible.

              **************UPDATE 20/02*****************

              Match id 129530622

              Totally imbalanced game. As Undying I'm forced to solo bot against Veno + Drow and still manage to get some last hits against this killer dual slow combo of death. Meanwhile top FEEEEDS, Pudge dies mid to Storm and top feeds more. This was the most braindead Lifestealer I've ever seen starting with a glove (yea wtf?) and then proceeding to feed over and over again when they can easily kill the BH if only they had some sentries. Game ends 30-8

              Match id 128694716
              Another joke game where the enemies feed over and over again. Omni obviously lacking in braincells dives the hardlane and dies repeatedly. On their safe lane they also fail and feed hard with Riki ending the 18min game with only level 5. With some fountain farm the game ends 4-50

              Match id 124375469
              The WORST Spectre I've ever seen. He begins and finishes the 17minute game with only a ring of health. He ends with a 0-9 score. Bat feeds for some reason and takes way too long to get an abandon (stats were still recorded for some reason though). Zeus fails mid and feeds (Phase Boots really...). Jakiro... well no idea on what he did the whole game but atleast he didn't fed like the other clowns. Game ended 31-4 !

              Match id 123926331
              This one isn't that one sided... if not for the fact that we had absolute trashcan feeders SK + Brew (who went Soul Ring + Bracer...). Even though I repeatedly called them to back off they can't read the message nor respond to mass pings. One ends with a 0-11-5 score and the other 2-13-3 score. Game ends 12-40.

              Match id 120975758
              Everyone except Weaver just feed over and over again. DK feeds so hard that he goes and troll builds dumb items

              Match id 118452140
              Slardar feeds so hard that he ends the game 0-11 without boots. PA feeds almost as hard 1-11 and goes troll build. WR also feeds 3-7. Game ends with a joke 41-8 score.

              Match id 115140790
              Really horrible Shaman + Mirana. The first ends 0-9 and the later 1-8. Alchemist atleast farms his late Midas... but still feeds 1-9. I barely win my lane against the Exort heavy Invoker but doesn't really count for much since he can still impact the game with his Sunstrikes. The useless Furion just farms and does nothing the whole game. Final game score is 6-33 with 4 of those 6 kills being mine.

              **************UPDATE 20/01*****************

              Match id 104314368
              So I get matched up against the known fail 5man stack TDK... and on my team I get the pro thread closer moderator blash! Game was just a stomp, top feeds blash, bot feeds and middle doesn't feed since it's an Invoker against a solo Spiritbreaker. Even though I clearly failed woods, I quickly managed to catch up due to enemy feed (Brood even fed some extra spiders) and manage to outlevel everyone in the game. Doom with Midas was the one with the least xpm in the entire game except for the Dazzle who was just feeding. Game ends 36-7

              Match id 102535952
              Absurd game.. So this Viper takes mid away from me and gets 0 denies against a solo Tidehunter. Both WR and Ursa top feed hardcore against 2 melee heroes, Lycan feeds bot, Viper has 0 farm and just feeds. Game ends 12-42

              Match id 102257088
              Ridiculous game. I thought from the beginning that I would be an easy game since one guy in the enemy team was a known game ruiner. My team was just worse than him. Visage and Lina go top and they just feed and feed and feeed. I went for jungle as Lycan and the enemy BH was trying so hard to kill me, for 2 times he left the lane for me unsuccessful, even with all this time he left Clinkz to free farm when Bounty came back he sure farmed that Clinkz like some creep. Game ends with a very sad 15-43 score

              Match id 100321706
              And again I get matched up with a guy who previously ruined my games but this one I forgot to also mute so I only noticed it when I tried to report him. My team gets Sven and Lycan and he picks OD for some reason, and then claims that OD isn't a carry, oh boy you just know the game is going to suck. Anyways I manage to get first blood against the Mirana but suddenly, OD feeds and feeds and feeds and feeeeeeeeeeeds. The rest of my team also feed.
              Game ends 52-7 with OD ending with a score of 0-19-1

              Match id 99855849
              So I get matched up against a guy who ruined one or more of my previous games who is Tinker, surprisingly his team is even worse than him. Disruptor doesn't even skill Glimpse for some reason, russian picks Medusa. Game ends 40-10

              Match id 99572538
              This time I get matched up not only against one, but 2 guys that ruined some of my previous games, the Kunkka and Cherepa the obviously braindamaged Luna. It's even hard to describe this game, only Ursa is kinda trying to play while the rest just feed and die. This luna tries to jungle with a poor man shield and feeds and feeds.
              Game ends with a very sad 10-52 score.

              Match id 97630745
              This game was a total joke, Timber feeds top and becomes useless. Necro fails mid so hard that around the 18minute mark, Medusa who was laning against him had Midas, Phase, Yasha and Dominator while Necro only had Boots of Speed and Bottle. As a solo mid he almost had the lowest creep score AND THE LOWEST LEVEL in the entire game which is really pathetic.
              Game ends with a pathetic 4-31

              Match id 95561349
              Another joke game where my team should have the better picks for the early game, but completely feeds. WR feeds 1-10 and rushes an Ogre Club? Timber feeds 5-12, Clock feeds 2-9, Veno feeds 1-7. Even with some ganking by me it's impossible to scrap this game away from the early game stage so it ends really fast with a 14-42 score

              Match id 93998676
              Total joke game where even though I have more kills than deaths even though I had my ancient stack countered by the enemy tryhards, my team still gets smashed even before the 20minute mark with a 4-20 score.

              Match id 93980739
              Another obvious matchmaking fail where the morphling in my team starts the game with a NAKED RING OF HEALTH. It was plain obvious that he would lose mid, just not so hard that he dies FOUR TIMES IN FOUR MINUTES to the enemy Shadow Fiend. He ONLY GOT 8 LASTHITS ON A 20MINUTE GAME. This is the best example of forcing a 50% winrate on solo players, matching them with total trash. I got smashed by the SF's gank. What can I say about the rest of my team? Gyro goes poor man shield against Dark Seer, Naix barely gets a Midas and CM had no impact whatsoever.
              Game ends with a very pathetic score of 26-3 with only 18minutes of gameplay.

              **************UPDATE 01/12*****************

              Match id 71050918
              So I get matched up against link from MYM... along with 4 bad players. Total trash game. Mirana calls for solo mid but then just feeds and gets underleveled. Around 8minutes in, Mirana was only level 5 while Viper was level 11! Slark feeds like hell going against Dark Seer. Lina feeds. Mirana feeds. Rubick feeds. Our solo mid Mirana has the lowest gold per minute in the game. Embarrassing 20 minute game ends with a 26-6 score

              Match id 70475910
              Invoker feeds mid lane, Kunkka and Rubick feed top lane. Wisp makes these really bar relocates into Void chronospheres that account for about 4 of my deaths in this game.. No one buys courier for the first 30minutes. No wards. Enemies way too much fed for me to kill them even with Daedalus and Madness

              Match id 70059061
              Perfect babysitting play by me on the Lich, keeping Drow out of the lane and making her stay level 1 until 4 minutes,b though Jugger fails last hits and pushes the lane, and then dives the tower when we had no chance to kill the Drow so he dies. Storm feeds mid. Dark Seer feeds bot lane over and over again. Nature's Prophet doesn't do a damned thing the whole game. A 17 minutes game that ends with a 30-8 score

              ************* LONG TIME UPDATE 14/11*****************
              This is an update because I think I got used to the fact that matchmaking has went down the toilet, but here it is a long one with many really ridiculous games:

              Match id 68616773
              Joke game ending with a pathetic score of 28-4 (2 of the kills are enemies diving fountain), after I see our lineup, I call woods, and the last guy for some reason picks Nature's Prophet and goes woods as well. Windrunner feeds first blood on the first wave, Windrunner feeds one minute after, then feeds again. Storm feeds mid. Alchemist feeds top. Prophet doesn't teleport to kill a guy with 10% hp nor to kill the courier. Windrunner feeds yet again, flames, says he doesn't care and then afks. Even the opponents complain about the game being too easy due to massive feeding.

              Match id 62664224
              I'm queing solo against a 5 stack, and I know that 3 of them aren't really bad players... problem is that I get 4 totally randoms who all are bad. Both top and bot lost, no one ganks and I lose mid because of the retarded nerf on Invoker's damage that makes Sniper survive with 20hp and then Bounty comes and ganks me. Final score was Radiant 30-6 Dire. I'm fine playing against a stack, as long as matchmaking doesn't give me 4 random baddies.

              Match id 62677381
              Right in the next game I get paired up with Calculus from MYM. He goes against this really bad Pudge who feeds him first blood at level 1. Enemy Venge, Drow and Lycan also play really bad. I just farmed jungle and basically didn't have to do anything because the enemy just played like crap even though they had wards up. We had a bad Puck but the enemy had 4 low skilled guys.

              Match id 62234494
              Really bad picks by our side but still... I get an AM that finishes the game 0-7-1 with a 36minute Battlefury. One assist out of 20 kills that our team had and still really crap farm. I buff Ursa multiple times but he doesn't even skill Earthshock (the kills Ursa had was because of my Surge). Ursa goes Sange and Drums... My friend Tiny loses mid because going against TA and I got really foccused down by BH. Their team had no real bad player while my team has this really bad Ursa and one of the worst AMs I've ever seen.

              Match id 61548538
              Silencer feedfeedfeedafkfeed. Drow also feeding even though severeal times warned to stay back. But Silencer is so bad that he even finishes the 30minute game at level 7. Prophet playing well even though I owned him mid. Their team just way above my team's level.

              Match id 61490314
              This game was really easy since Rubick, Viper and Prophet were really bad players, always getting caught alone, overextending and suiciding. Windrunner wasn't that good also, the only reason this game lasted was because PL was playing really well, too bad he had to abandon his farming to help failing team mates. We had a trash BM (who even went armlet for some reason). But one bad guy doesn't compensate 3 baddies on the other team.

              Match id 54182165
              Me and my friend QoP get paired with 3 russians who obviously have no clue about what they are playing and they go suicide multiple times fighting 2v4 and the likes, which makes us lose the game.

              Match id 53032469
              3 feeders in the enemy team. Maiden Tiny lane loses hardcore against a solo WR. Maiden finishes game with only level 8 because of feed and afk. Ursa not even caring about the game and dying on dumb places, like attempting roshan alone when I'm visible farmnig next to roshan pit with Aghanim Nightstalker.

              There were many many more one sided games... and matchmaking seems really random, I can get matched up with worlds best dota players like Dendi, Bamboe and SingSing, and in the next game I get matched up with low skill scrubs that I know from my own country.

              ************* UPDATE 01/08*****************

              Match id 29451435
              So not only I get one, not two, hell not even three, BUT A FOUR 4 MAN RUSSIAN STACK ON MY TEAM. Just one look at the score and you get the whole picture, this game was me against 9 players. What more can I say about this game? Prophet only feeds and has no items with one of the easiest farming heroes in the game, Lifestealer has one armlet in a 40minute game and only feeds, pathetic Tinker doesn't even get his Boots of Travel in 40minutes and Sand King also just feeds.

              Match id 28773987
              Horrible team on this one. Morphling only has Linken in a 32minute game. Windrunner doesn't know how to play and feeds, KotL feeds... but the worst by far is Drow... Even when I get a first blood on the opposing mid solo Queen of Pain, Drow still dies a lot against her and feeds, but besides her atrocious score of 1-9-1, she completely throws by getting a very late Hand of Midas and then a Sange of all things..... Guess 2k for +10 damage is a good recipe for losing games.

              Match id 28692418
              So I'm playing against Casper from Starladder TV so I hope I get a good team... but I just get another trashcan team. Sand 0-6, Enigma 0-9, Phantom and Kunkka 3-10... Even when I bust my ass to get a very early Hex on my Destroyer it was just impossible to win with this amount of feeding.

              Match id 28682281
              Very fast win by the opposing team, even though my team manages to feed hardcore. Lifestealer 20minutes jungle and has NO ITEMS. Sand King feeds. Huskar gives First Blood on the 2nd wave and then proceeds to feed once every 2 minutes before going afk.

              Match id 28455399
              Don't get fooled by this final score. The enemies started going 1 by 1 and giving us free kills after our horrible whining ES left the game. Besides mass feeding ES, I also had probably one of the best Luna players I ever saw, with an awesome score of 4-14 !! Who goes for the best skill build I ever seen by maxing Moon Glaive at level 7! Both Riki and Spectre only got kills in the late game where opponents become sloppy but riki especially fed hardcore, ending the game with 12 deaths on the invisible hero. I had the most kills by playing a hard support...

              Match id 28314329
              Absolute trashcan team. I get first blood with Queen of Pain against the solo mid Invoker, rest of the team just feeds. Feed and ragequit, nothing more to say.

              Match id 26716165
              I'm the only one who is even trying this game, and with a support Venomance I manage to get a 4-4-4 score while the rest of my team feeds. Pudge feeds, Prophet feeds, Viper feeds, Huskar feeds, nothing more to say

              Match id 24182852
              Another one of those games where I feel like I'm playing alone. Huge feeds with a 3-13 Luna and a 3-14 Shaman. Even my 10-2 Juggernaught couldn't carry this game. SF and Veno were semi decent but not enough to compensate for the lack of brain that the others have. Also would be nice if some Dev could ban the Luna since after he fed and flamed, he went AFK for a huge amount of time and did not receive and abandon.

              Match id 27649350
              And yet another one... Ursa 4-11, ES 1-8, Viper 5-10 and Prophet 1-12 with no boots. Zeus is a hero that I simply can't lose with on pubs, but this game is just impossible to win with this huge feeding.

              Match id 25250499
              This game was such a joke for the enemy team that the Lina made two SANGE YASHA. Even with the huge map control that the other team had, I've managed to farm almost 2 items on my carry. Morphling on my team was barely decent, having only farming one item. Riki feeds 1-10 and Shadow Demon feeds 2-12. QoP trolls and goes Dagon. In the end, these players feed just made it an impossible game.

              ************* UPDATE 27/06*****************

              Match id 22799987

              So I pick my Enchantress which is one of my best heroes and I play it a lot on -cm beca├║se I figured both Mid and Bot were going to be easily gankable in this game. Couldn't I be more wrong... Mirana goes mid instead of bottom so I can't kill her (since leap pujts her safe in the tower) and Prophet goes bottom. Prophet SHOULD be an easy kill, HOWEVER, bottom lane has 0 control (dunno if its Rubick spamming his Fade Bolt or Doom devouring full hp creeps) and the lane is fully controlled by Nature's Prophet, always with the waves very near his tower. The only way I could gank him was with a troll, when I finally got one, Rubick who was right next to me did nothing, and Prophet escaped.
              Meanwhile, I get a team mate that goes top, WHO HAS ONLY 20 GAMES PLAYED!!! Feeding top hardcore. SF was kinda ok I guess, not enough to survive an overfarmed hard lane Nature's Prophet tp'ing to his lane and a support Tidehunter that got a really fast level 6. Rubick for some reason only had lvl 5 at 20minutes in (he got extra levels from fountain kills).

              ************* UPDATE 20/06*****************

              Both of these games involve the same stack, which for some reason are way above their skill level

              Match id 21419532

              The noobness level on this one is just far too big that I don't even dare watch the replay. I random Omni and have to take a solo top against AntiMage and Shadow Demon with a jungling Nature's Prophet. Lina loses mid to AA. Bottom with Riki and Lich (yes freakin Lich!!!), feed a solo Razor!!!!!! It doesn't stop here... Lone Druid in the jungle farms Phase Boots on his bear in 15minutes !!! After that they just go afk and report me, probably because I wasn't feeding (only one death trying to defend tower against overfed guys and another one at fountain). How did my mmr got so low to get matched with these individuals... or maybe matchmaking decided that I'm pro enough to carry all this dead weight! Anyways I got my revenge on these guys...

              Match id 21424328

              I got matched against them
              Obviously, the game was so easy that it wasn't even funny. The only thing making this game remotely fun was the enemy Invoker, who was the only good player and wasn't part of the fail stack of death. They were just over extending, getting ganked in really stupid spots (even though their CM was warding like mad) and feeding our BS/Gyro. I felt sorry for Invoker

              ************* UPDATE 15/06*****************

              Match id 20570773

              So I go queue with a friend of mine that is a beginner player (he went Venge), I go with him to the bot lane. Meanwhile top dies and mid dies as well, and Axe clearly doesn't understand jungling because he leveled a lot slow and did not do any creep stacks which are essential to jungle as Axe (supposed to be high skill game). This turns out to be me against the entire Dire team who have a far inferior lineup and still stomp my team for some reason. Both Axe and Kunkka don't even do anything the whole game, Invoker is half decent but not enough to compensate all the dead weight. On the Dire side the only bad player was the Alchemist and even he did what he was supposed to do and farmed.

              Match id 20576816

              Still queing with the same friend (who now plays Tide). For my surprise, I get matched up with 2 other guys from my country (the jugger and the veno). After having played a few games with them in the past I knew that one was bad and the other was just horrible. Game went according to expectations and both of them fed in the safe lane with their strong combo (Veno gale + jugger spin while enemy slowed to hell for 15 seconds), without ANY ganks from the mid lane, just them dieing like the bad players they are. I randomed Naix and had to solo him against the Queen of Pain and I still did a decent job (treads armlet at 14minutes in). Even my team's Mirana is kinda bad judging from the really horrible item build. Also, this time I can't even point out one single bad player from the enemy team while my team is really bad.

              Match id 20582791

              I don't give up on my friend and keep playing with him, inviting another newbie friend of mine to come and play with us (the guy from previous games playing Lesh, the new one playing Drow). I random Brood, who is probably my worst hero in the entire pool, in hopes that matchmaking will pit me up against lower skilled opponents...... the hell it did. I got first blooded by a weird combo of CK + QoP and they even had wards as starting items!! But even though CK was always getting the max duration of the stun I didn't give up, I kept going and using my nuke on CK, he was about 100hp for 2 times and our Prophet played by a russian didn't TP once, and our russian EXORT Invoker didn't even use Sunstrike.... Invoker loses mid, my unexperienced friends lose top, Prophet doesn't farm anything useful in the jungle.. matchmaking gave me strong opponents against my newbie friends and also gave me even weaker team mates...

              Match id 20604305

              Another really horrible game in the same day, Windrunner skills shackle at level 1 and proceeds to feed. Jugger has free farm on her lane. Tiny takes my mid so I had to get my farm and levels on the jungle, which I thought I did better than I expected.... but it wasn't enough since our ES decides to feed and do nothing. Their midas Bloodseeker starts to own Tiny on mid and proceeds to gank our Morphling who has an unimpressive creep score, considering that about 1/4 are spiderlings. We got stomped with no chance.

              Match id 20614802

              I go queing with another friend of mine who is slightly better than the previous guys, but still bad. I got a random Chen, a hero I perform well, my friend went PA. I got the first blood mid even though Kunkka failed with his skills so the lane should be easy, I kill Pudge again when he tries to gang bot. But even with these ganks, Kunkka still feeds him for some reason. Meanwhile Weaver feeds top against 2 melee heroes. And bot starts to feed. And it becomes a feedfest. Weaver argues that he doesn't have any farm because he claims Weaver can't solo a lane. This game was just so bad... I think that matchmaking is rating me as a low player so that I get really bad team mates, but still giving me opponents far better than the guys on my team.

              **************UPDATED 09/06**************

              Match id 19629403

              So I get one guy who I previously muted playing Lifestealer (and I only do that to the absolute worst players and game ruiners). I got solo WR and go against WD and Tide. Solo mid Tinker loses mid to a Storm Spirit and keeps feeding him there. Silencer goes top with CM against a solo BH. Silencer has treads 12 minutes in while BH has almost a full Battlefury. CM doesn't buy a single ward. Tinker keeps feeding. Lifestealer only completes his Armlet at 15minutes (without being ganked a single time). I die once bot due to a Ravage being used solely for me, and I die again because Enigma does the same thing and uses his Black Hole just for me. All trash players on my team while their team actually played good

              *************UPDATED 12/05**********

              Match id 15654047

              I queue with 3 other friends, who range from bad to mediocre, and we get a 5th random guy who is bad. They just feed and feed. I go solo PL against WR and Veno for a long time, not only do I survive well but I also manage to get great farm, while all the other lanes lose and feed hardcore. Game ends with a ridiculous score of 46-8.

              Match id 15738438

              This time I solo queue against a 4 or full stack. I get rNdM who I already know that is a bad player (lost once with him doing the most retarded build for Lancer, and won 2 times against with him feeding), surprise to me is that the other 3 players I got are worse than him... Void with support from Bane has treads at 20minutes against solo brood, and top just feeds hardcore mode and even though they had SK + Pugna. Naix with support WR somehow still free farms and gets 11minute Armlet + Treads. 1-9 Void, 0-11-4 Bane and 2-11 Pugna. Game ends about 15-40

              ***************UPDATED 06/05************

              Match id 14862684

              Ok so I'm up against Playmate from EG, Lacoste, and Dement, former mouseports player (SingSing's team). So I'm against 3 pro players, I hope I have a good team. Well I don't have and it was a stomp. Even with my ganks on the mid lane, Bloodseeker still loses because he is so bad that he didn't even skill his silence. Axe almost looks good, but most of his early game gold came from my neutral stacks. Windrunner missed a lot of Shackles and almost didn't do anything the whole game. Team so bad that no one has tp scrolls, so the pro players push our base without any form of opposition.
              I'm fine about playing against pro player stacks.... as long as I have a decent enough team

              **********UPDATED 27/04*********

              Match id 13300344

              This game doesn't feel one sided due to the score... The score ended 12-15, but without me the score would have ended 3-15... And that's only because I got a really bad team that should be put in lower skill matchmaking, not high. We even had the advantage in the hero picks because they had 2 hard carries that are useless without farm. I even had the only hard lane against SK and CM.. the other lanes were against a solo weaver and against a solo Storm (both of which bad laners) and my team still loses hard on both lanes.
              Prophet should belong to low skill since he didn't even gang once with his global tp, he never did any scouting with his trees, he never defended anything.
              Pudge should be in low skill since he hit about one hook out of 20, he rushed a Boots of Travel for no reason and comes to my lane to steal farm.
              Pugna should be banned from beta since besides his flaming, he just fed the enemies, went afk, and fed the enemies with multiple couriers.
              Clock was OK, but not enough to even play a decent game against 8 other players..

              Match id 13321649

              This game was just a stomp from beginning to end. I random Dark Seer, go to the bathroom and when I return, Death Prophet for some reason had taken my bot lane. Also for some wierd reason, Axe decided to go lane with Riki, so my only choice was to go woods myself. Axe then decides that he can't farm with Riki on the lane against Lesh and Jakiro, and decides to stalk me in the jungle and he tries to take my creeps. Meanwhile, Storm heavily outplays the mid Kunkka and kills him repeatedly (should be the other way around before level 6..). Riki then decides to go AFK and stays in the fountain for over 10 minutes but without getting an abandon. The only decent player in this team is Death Prophet, the rest just fail hard.
              Second joke match in a row in only one day...

              Match id 13343375

              ...And another one sided stomp. I random Spectre, a hero in which I excel at but can't really do anything with it in the first 20minutes. 2 friends pugna and wr go top and catch enemy necro out of position a few times. Meanwhile Invoker loses mid. Me and Kunkka were in control of our lane against another bad lane of Void and Razor, but around 6minutes in, we get ganked without a miss call. Game just rapidly snowballs from here on. After dieing in really stupid ways, both friends decide to go afk. I reported them both as usual, but luckily this time WR got an abandon, so I left the game, afterwards they used my hero to feed more, not that I care.
              So 3 out of 4 games today were complete one sided joke stomps... I don't really know what's going with matchmaking

              Match id 13359972

              ........AND ANOTHER. I get a random Void, we get a Tinker for mid, a support Sven to help me bot, a jungling Prophet.......... and a guy that last picks Slardar. This guy instead of going to his own lane, he proceeds to ruin the game by leaving the top lane completely empty and he went mid to ruin the game for Tinker as well. Matchmaking was good except for this one guy that made it become a one-sided game... I know the report function exists but for some reason matchmaking keeps rating these game ruiners higher than it should and it's not a sole example... It's the 4th game today. At minute 12 they had a 5 tower advantage on us, a 12k gold lead on this time is very significant. Even with my Void i was unable to turn it around

              Match id 13404352

              Oh hey after some good games matchmaking decides to go bananas again on the same day. Game ended about 23-3
              So one guy gets Skeleton and agrees to rosh lvl1 so I get Ursa..... except he skills Hellfire Blast instead of aura... his creep score is also amazing! On a 18minute game he gets 17 creeps! Oh and bot lane goes hardcore feeding mode, both Dragon Knight and Warlock go about 0-5 in the first 9minutes!


              I will be posting from the dota2 stats site, so that people can see the scoreboard without the hassle of searching the game. All of my games are supposed to be high skill.

              Match id 12620946

              So I get peppe from mTw in my team, still the other team smokes us completely. Our team's Crystal Maiden (who appears to feed intentionally) ends the game with a 1-19 score. Drow doesn't know how to play and feeds 0-12 as well. Game ends with a ridiculous score of about 10-60. With about 4 of our kills being them diving the fountain.

                I'm just going to post the matches played of each player. See if you can spot the one player who doesn't belong. For bonus points, feel free to guess which team got stomped into the ground:



                No one was partnered with Mr. 33. At least, no one fessed up to it. He didn't communicate, and had no idea how to use his hero. The Pudge on our team (Mr. 625) was kind enough to guide him through the basics, and the newbie, to his credit, did listen. But he was just so outclassed that he never had a chance (and we, in turn, were fighting 4v5 versus a very solid team). It was hopeless. I mean, he was Furion, and he didn't know how to jungle.

                Didn't know how to jungle.

                As Furion.

                R.I.P. old matchmaking thread. You were a source of so much fun and laughter

                    One sided match

                    Match ID: 106600926

                    Description: A 4 man stack completely obliterated a team of non grouped players. The non stacked team did not destroy a single tower. The crystal maiden on the non stacked team said she was having lag but I didn't notice her performance to be particularly bad.

                    This match was extremely one sided and its very frustrating to lose to a team with perfect ganks and cooperation. I don't think I'll play another match that pits 5 non communicating players against 4-5 players that have played 75+ games together.

Bat rider abandoned the game at 15 minute mark (disconnected through console and pressed "leave game"). Not sure why they didn't all disconnect at once, though.

                      Description: A stack of 3+1+1 completely obliterated a stack of 1+4. Score was 29-4 (with 2 fountain dives). The game took 22 minutes. They were trying hard. They played Doom on mid, Riki on hard lane and triple on safe lane. They tried to stack and pull, but I warded the camp and rewarded it when they tried to deward it.

                      I'd like to mention that I and generalcash have really deflated ratings, which is probably why these games look this way. Those accounts should be in the very high games, not normal games. We don't even use voice communication because the PC generalcash is using can't handle it and Dota 2 simultaneously.

                          Seems to be a stack of five using one smurf account to get placed in lower tier games and stomp public players. None of the players on the opposing team were part of a group, from what I could tell.

                            Wow, look at that! 5-man premade stomps 5 solo queues. Again. As it LITERALLY. ALWAYS. DOES.

                            You know, sometimes I really wonder why I even bother posting these. It's clear Valve isn't going to be fixing this problem and all this does is seem like a half-baked attempt at placating angry people who are tired of 5-man premades dominating them.

                            Oh well, whatever.

                              Another 5-man premade. Another solo queue. I hope you figure out matchmaking someday.
