    Matchmaking Feedback

    So lets match 5 people, all with the same clan tag, with 40% more wins than losses all on the same team. No problem there.

    And lets put ANYONE ELSE on the other team. Anyone else being two players with less than 10 games, and the others I didn't even have the courage to go look. But I'm sure they were just as bad, if not worse.

    Yea, that leads for an awesome game. Sat afk from 10 mins onwards when I got ganked by a Rhasta with Blink and Arcane boots.
    Fuck that for a joke.

    So lets try again. Shake it off.

    Lets match a party of 5 against ANYONE ELSE in the matchmaking cue.

    Yea, that leads for a game ALMOST as awesome as the previous one. I random, everyone else picks carries.
    You can take that one and run with it.... NOT.

    One more try.

    I look at my Wins / Total Played. 75 wins, 65 losses, 5 abandons. Puts me at 53% wins. Pretty average, I know. Let's enter Matchmaking alone and see what happens. 206 online players and myself, shrug that last game off, Matchmaking will work properly now, right?

    Oh, look at that. Less than 30 seconds and I got a game. AWESOME!

    Alright, Void Lich, Venge and Riki.
    WAIT, WHAT!?!one!one1one1

    THE SAME VOID AND RIKI FROM LAST GAME. THE TWO WITH TEN GAMES.

    OH GREAT. YEA. MATCHMAKING WORKS. I LOVE IT.

    /rant. Sorry.

    Again, I apologize. But either you guys need to place a big fat warning that says DO NOT MATCHMAKE ALONE IF YOU INTEND ON WINNING, or maybe take another look at this so called "algorithm".

    I can't possibly be in the same player skill level as these guys. Not saying I'm good, I'm right there on the average button (probably because I MM alone so much, but these guys were terrible. I mean TERRIBLE). I won't name anyone as the point is not to single out individuals, but to express severe anal-pain at the process of matchmaking Dota2 alone.

    Oh, and for bonus points, here is a magical screenshot. I blurred out Riki's name as its not the intention to ridicule the individual, but the role he plays in this story.

    You deserve to be matched with Riki and Void every game.

    this isn't a problem at all in hon

    my guess is that it's only a problem in DOTA2 because of the relatively small pool of players

    And drag out that rape fest for an additional half hour?

    No thank you, I have a job, a woman and a drinking habit. My time is a little more valuable than that.

    the problem lies not with solo vs. solo queues, it lies with "obviously awesome players" vs. "clearly fresh to the game players" matchmaking.

    Its supposed to MATCH MAKE, not provide the tools for Mass Murder.

    Mass Murder...sounds nice


    Hate to say it but MM simply cant work perfectly with this low amount of player count.

    I am not happy with the way MM works either. Maybe it's because there are too few players in the queue so they are keeping the search range larger than the intended retail version.
