  • Find Match Options for Newbies or Party

    Current DotA2 match making system is very good and I wish there are more options for beginners and competitive players to choose from.

    If possible, I suggest to put a "check box / radio button" setting or similar to the below:

    button -> [[[ Find Match ]]] <- button
    [X] All Matches
    [ ] All Matches (excluding Party)
    [ ] Party of 2 + 3 Players
    [ ] Party of 3 + 2 Players
    [ ] Party of 4 + 1 Players
    [ ] Party of 5


    1) Newbies will have the option to choose matches where there will be no parties that may bully them.
    2) Party of players will have the chance to practice with other parties.
    3) Pro with newbie party (mentoring) will have the option to match with parties (which is a tough game considering that they may be fighting a team with 5 Pro players) or just a casual game matching with 5 random players.
    4) etc etc..
