    By the way, is the captured prince of Nigeria with you? Tell him I'd like to help him with my bank account so he can share part of his inmense wealth with me.
    Maybe I'm just bored? I'm not a psychologist. I'm a psychology major with 4 years of education. Everyone goes to college nowadays and get a degree, no?

    By the way, who's we? Mr. Irrelevante the Noob and his Company who think orchid is a good item on nyx? OOOHHH yeah

    Every single one of you haven't touched matchmaking for months and still want to argue that certain items are good for this and that

    Fucking jokers

    That includes your modus operandi.

    C'mon guys keep this on topic, the past few pages are completely unrelated BS. But I'll break down OP's post.

    True

    Proof? For me they are all around 50%, as stated on my dotabuff profile.

    False, see this poll, and my analysis. It is highly likely that you are delusional in this respect.

    The truth is bitter, players are not as good as they think they are.

    I've explained this COUNTLESS TIMES to people. The chance of you encountering someone stupid is the same in any game, too bad you only remember the ones that ruined your streak. There is no proof that you are more likely to get matched with shittier people after winning games, but better opponents. Sift through your games and see.
    Secondly, when you are pushed into higher bracket games, you are technically the "noob." Say that your true equilibrium is 90 points, by chance you won 5 in a row and you got into a 100 points game. You are now a 90 points noob playing in a 100 points game. And of course you are more likely to lose and go back down to your true equillibrium.

    Proof? You can't say it's bad without some concrete evidence. See above as well. The fact that you are suggesting people are actually getting placed at the top then going down is incredibly stupid.

    Visible rankings won't change how MM works. There is a common misconception around the forum that if the players see a number, MM will somehow behave differently.

    You don't even play matchmaking anymore. Why are you even here?
