Default Average skill level


So.. I have been in the Dota2 beta for around 3 months now. It was all good in the beginning, but as soon as they started giving out random keys (for example through the key draw thigny) the beta became horrible. So.. My question is, why is the average DotA player so horrible?

Don't bring me some stupid excuses like "pub games, hurrdurr" - Most of you just don't know how to play this game at all. The majority of players right now would probably be around 1400-1600 MMR in HoN (this is horrible, just fyi).

And yes, before those random keys were given away it was AWESOME (it really was). So yea.... Why are you guys so horrible? Everything started with the playdota key draw, so I think I can get some responses from you. ggs

By the way, the first step to become a better player is ADMITTING that you are bad. Most of you (the DotA players) seem to be completly stubborn and bad.

Because the average player's age matches their IQ.

And also their reflex time in seconds.

I totally agree. It's because most people play 'for fun', so their level converges to a certain point and it stops there. They don't want to increase anymore and they have trouble taking advice because they win 40% of their games, so they conclude 'they know how to play'.

Having fun is winning for me. No, losing in DotA is not really fun for me. Most of the time atleast, sometimes it is.

It's frustrating when you see those headless chickens running around, having NO CLUE what they are doing. I decided to just stop playing Dota2 for the moment, untill I can queue as 5 or 4. This is just sad and freaking horrible. I'm seriously playing LoL at the moment. It's sad.

Well I sort of agree.

This is why im hoping for LoD in the DotA 2. In LoD, everyone usually at least knows all the skills, so you can always except at least a semi-decent games there.

Well, my MMR in HoN is around 1500.

I don't think I really suck, but I'm not that player. Just do my job.

So you're saying you're stuck in the "Medium" skill level pool of dota2 (not "High") and are complaining that everyone else in medium is bad?

Also, why wouldn't you just play 2-3 pubs, steam message everyone who's good from each of those games, and add them to your friends list so you can queue together?

If you're not terrible and they're not terrible.. of course you'd want to party together...

"I'm glad most of you don't have a beta key yet. because most of you can't play the game and only want to brag about having beta."

That's what most of the people here are. as I said, I'm not even playing anymore. It's no fun to have a teammate calling middle, dying in the first 2 minutes and then leaving. (Yes, had that 3 games in a row - my last 3 games so far.

Boo fucking hoo. If you're not good enough to win a 4v5 then that's pathetic. Therefore, this is for you.

Are you mentally handicapped, or just retarded?
If you have normal lanes set up, he calls mid first and goes middle - and instantly LEAVES, the game is pretty much ruined.

I'm a by far better player than probably all of you, LOL.

I think coz most of the freaks who won/begged for a beta key on these draws and competitions are at most 17 year old noobkids wanna-be pro elitists who think they're 'all that', I mean just take a peep at the beta key temp forum here. It's quite pathetic to be honest.

Because 90% of the people in the beta key draw are little kiddies that have never played the game, you have to expect it to suck.

Well, I don't care about their age at all - I care about their skill/knowledge in a game. (Some of them don't even cast their spells - seriously, they don't).

Doesn't matter to me how old he is then, he is just dead weight on a team, and completly ruins it.

1750-1800 hon player here with dota2

add me for some games - I'll be on today after 5PM PST

dark_maat

as an FYI on my playstyle - I usually play hardcarry drow/riki (I have the best riki build ever if you would like to see it in action)

As anything else, I am working on my ES skills again, since I was a pro ES player, but never liked behe in HoN and I am a decent windrunner/dark seer.

For starters, "you guys" at the OP offends me. You've never played with me and the fact that you just asume that EVERYONE is terrible is a logical falacy.

Third:
Listen to what some of these people say.. If you find people that are good at the game and have fun playing with them, then party up and play with each other.

Also, as my final point, remember that the give aways are not only for the PD guys. There are many other random sites giving beta keys. The draws on this site have been minimal. Around 20 keys have been given through draws and stuff, so its impossible that 20 guys make such a huge difference.

The matchmaking system seems to be more like the random heroic system from WoW atm. It matches you pretty much against every skill level, and you get players from every skill level in your team. Pretty horrible.

This was obviously for the group that I mentioned - those who came in there thinking they are the shit and now straight up ruin games. Those who think they are the best players ever, when they obviously arent.

So you are telling me, that I have to find 5 players to play 1 enjoyable game because the matchmaking system just COMPLETLY fails to do so? Yea, that's not how it should be.

It's 20 keys/day. And as I said, this thread is about the GENERAL skill level of DotA.

Yes, I'm sure I'm bad. It's fine. You are one of those mentioned in this thread. Feel free to impress yourself some more, so I can enjoy this. :3

The MatchMakingsystem is just not working at all, and I cba to wait 1 hour just to get in 1 inhouse game :] (Yes, I can play there. Since I'm actually good at this game - sorry that you aren't).

It's a beta do you think Valve knows the skill level of every player they let in the beta?Be serious. Some of them are pro and some are noobs, maybe that's because they just started to play DotA2. It's a game like any other and people will learn to play it in time. For all future complaints I'll just say one word: BETA!!!

I am 1700 MMR hon player, currently at 63 win - 54 losses in dota2 beta, I think my stats are not that bad and I win my key in this playdota forum draw.

The main objective of the BETA is to test the game and find bugs, I already found 3 or more bugs.

OP you are being selfish. Go play HoN or LoL if you want stabilized matchmaking

First off mentally handicapped is retarded so there is no "or" there, dumbass.

Second off if he leaves instantly, then you lose what 2 minutes? Teleport or walk to mid and continue playing. Whole game isn't ruined if only 1 player leaves. 4v5 games gives you more money, and, if you're really better than all of us(which I just assume you are cause you are bitching about it), why can't you just carry your team to victory?

Dota is full of assholes like you talking shit like you're better than everyone. Fact is you're not. Do yourself and us the favor and stick with LoL.
Or I guess you can bitch a little more here.

Because dota 2 is going to be a game with mass appeal, just like LoL. After playing LoL, I can easily deduce that this means there's going to be a lot of idiots that comprise most of the community. This is perfectly fine if you're looking for a non-competitive nature where wins/loses and strategies don't matter, but if you desire competitive play, it's just a bitch in general. It's the reason why I still like the original dota so much. While there are still a lot of lower-skilled players, there are those that excel in the genre, and having a good ih or scrim with them trumps 10 pubs with people that have been playing for only a brief time and haave no idea what to get. The reason why the average skill level in dota 2 is so low is because valve's marketing strategy is working. They're getting people that have no idea what to do to get involved in their game, and that's going to increase their market. If the entire beta was just oldfags like me and everyone else that's been playing dota, hon, and lol for years now, then anyone new to the genre would get smashed and therefore lose motivation to stick with the game.

And btw i picked antimage against SK gaming guys, Angel picked storm spirit, and guess whoes ult is stronger guys i mean antimage rules
Annndddd this is why when dota 2 gets released, they gotta segregate the community. Have different leagues please.

OP you are being selfish. Go play HoN or LoL if you want stabilized matchmaking
I can't tell if it's the rage in this thread or your avatar thats making me hard...
