  • Make games until now count on battle points

    Well, i have 700+ games and a lot of ppl have a lot of games so.... maybe you guys could do the calculation of those number of games on the battle points and battle level system?? it would be REALLY nice, and no downsides.

    EDIT: if this is true :

    "Q: Why would I spend money while Dota 2 is still in Beta?
    A: We don't really think of Dota 2 as a beta, but we also aren't ready for everyone to show up and start playing just yet. We are constantly updating the game with new heroes, bug fixes, and new features. None of the items you purchase or the progress you make will be lost or reset once the game is available for everyone."

    The we really need those games as battle points please.

    And why should valve do this? It has no upside either...apart from handing out dozens of items for free to thousands of players.

        Just no. Everyone starts from zero on the day of it's implementation. Look at TF2, they did the same and old players didn't get drops from their previous matches, only a hat because they spent real money on it.

        Anyway, pointless thread. ;/

          And suddenly, playing a game becomes a form of payment to the creators of the game.

            I think it's an unrealistic expectation personally, and I doubt Valve will do it. There is really nothing more to argue I suppose. If they wanted to do that, they would have. What do you gain/lose from this anyway? Would you not have played Dota 2 knowing that there would be a store? Would you have played knowing they were not going to honour your previous games? It's all trivial.

              We should be paying Valve for letting us play a game months before it is released, if you are so hellbent on a hat for Axe then just leave. You should join the TF2 group that doesn't care about Valve and just wants their precious hats.

                The game is free, no payment here and we are beta testers, so we wouldnt have to pay to beta test too. i don't get why the hate for me wanting my games to be counted...i dont care about the items, i care more about the lv.

                  Why do you care about the level?

                      It doesn't affect your matchmaking tier in any way... These matches served to allocate you to your right place, the correct matchmaking level tier. You still have your commendations and your hero "bars status". Everything from the past has nothing to do with the leveling, leveling will be used for the new battle points which just got implemented. Matches from now on that will matter and will affect the new feature.

                      As I said, I don't see why we should get our levels seeing as the features to measure how they are earned are new, right?

                      "oh gawd, you just implementeddd battlu points vavle!! i are entitled to haf dem points from past unrelated matchies!!". Sounds silly, I know. But that's how you sound right now.

                        Just be happy that you got to play the beta, don't start crying like a baby when Valve won't give you free stuff.

                          The feature was there, dendi had level 6....valve just turned it off to optmize it....

                          you know what, do whatever you want, maybe all of you just got low number of games and dont wanna see anyone ahead huh?

                              So what? Are you jealous of Dendi?

                              By the way, you kinda gave yourself hints with things you said: "The feature was there, Valve turned it off to optimize it". The game build has been undergoing several changes, does it ring a bell that you can't see replays before the replays system was updated? Ohh, maybe they cannot use the leveling system before "X" game build because the core programming was so off and different, it's kind of virtually impossible? That I don't know for sure, it could be an option, or else why not they didn't think about implementing that so early in the beta or implementing it now that they "turned it on"?

                              I don't know man, several reasons could be the factor. Besides, I'm more concerned about my MM tier, the whole battle points levels I can just start from scratch like everyone else and peacefully level it up.
