    This needs to happend. And I think it is because as latest update, you can see new menus/modes that you can't use yet, but one of them is "Find Team Match" wich is basicly match for premades I guess?

  • We need a "solo queue-only" MM option; I am frequently matched against premade teams

    This is getting ridiculous. I've been playing against 3-man and 5-man premade teams for a long while now and it's literally taking all the fun away from the game. My opponents are coordinating their attacks so efficiently there is nothing my team can do.

    There is only one person I know that plays DotA 2 so most of the time I'm by myself. How is it fair that I'm put against 5 people that talk to each other on Skype? I am absolutely certain that I am not good enough to carry matches against premade teams!

    All my teammates are strangers to one another and yet when I look at my opponents' Steam Friend List, they all know each other! I can't win against them despite me doing my very best, my win rate is getting lower and lower, in both Diretide and Greeviling my average win rate is at about 35% and aside from a few good matches where everyone's legitimately playing well, playing against premades always results in a loss for me. This is not balanced at all.

    Even if you were to increase matchmaking time to 10 minutes with an optional "solo queue-only" option, I would always use this option. I am 100% serious here.
