    Finished the Dota 2 review this morning. I'll link it when it is up.

    So difficult to write a short and concise review on a game as complex and massive as Dota 2.

    I agree. I ask myself the same question. Hopefully they add that when it's officially released.

    There are "ranks" if you search for games you've played ->> watch tab, recently played, put your named in and filter by skill level you'll see which skill level you're playing in. Honestly it's not that selective but once you've won a few a in row it bumps you up. But there are still bad players in the very high skill rank.

    I think it was like 80-85% of the players are in Normal. So even getting out of Normal is very nice.

    I'm hoping for a league system similar to that present in Starcraft but we'll see but Valve does.

    Yes I also hope they'll put in a ladder system or something a bit more visible when it comes to displaying your "skill", kind of like in LoL.
    But for now I'm glad that they're fixing the stupidly broken matchmaking - yesterday we were matched against people with ~600 wins while our most experienced guy had 150 wins, 2 of us under 100 and the other 2 were new players, so about 10 wins. Obviously we lost all the matches.

    No, matchmaking was bugged as you can see from yesterdays patchnotes. It doesn't go solely by win ratio, if it does even go by it. No one knows how it works, but I knew there was something wrong with matchmaking past few days. I'm just glad they *supposedly* fixed it.

    Once they open the doors to all players, Match Making should get more accurate as we have more people. This way the search range doesn't need to expand as much to find a match.

    Why does match making now seems a bit longer than before?

    I've had some really bad matches since release, but I'm slowly working on improving my w/l, had over 50 more wins than losses for a while, now I"m down to +25 or something. It sucks to go in a full stack and see 3 people go random and play like tards because "hurr durr we're 5", I guess they didn't know 5 man stacks are now almost always matched with other 5 man stacks. Imagine a guy getting CM and farming all game to get bkb, no wards, no smoke, no chick, spams her spells on creeps in lane then complains how I have shitty farm when I upgrade chick and buy wards. And when I'm supporting him, I pull when it's needed, keep the important spots warded, smoke gank, don't steal creeps or xp and the moron still misses creeps completely alone in the lane without any enemy heroes, leaves me to die because he wants to last hit 2 more creeps instead of joining a fight. Sometimes I think I'm better off playing solo.

    Just have to find a good group.

    My Win/Loss ratio has also gone down a lot the past while. But I don't really care about that too much, I still get lots of fun games. Might try and bring it up again later but I'd rather just keep enjoying the game than worrying about things like W/L.

    Razor finally being picked again in competitive games.

    Also, did you guys see that insane 96 minute game? The longest Dota 2 competitive game to date.
