    So basically I am better than 95% people? I find it hard to believe.

    EDIT:
    Found a tier list which is more precise, still kinda rough estimates.

    Clay: 0-2299

    Wood: 2300-2799

    Bronze: 2800-3099

    Silver: 3000-3599

    Gold: 3600-4099

    Platinum: 4100-4599

    Diamond: 4600-5099

    Silicon: 5100+

    Yeah, the majority of the players don't know what they're doing (not being offensive, people know how to play, just not as well). However, when you do get to the higher MMRs, there is still a huge difference in skill. Two players in the same percentile might not even be comparable in skill.

    Also, high MMR does not necessarily mean you are good. Some players can get carried up there but it does tend to get balanced out after hundreds of games.

    I think the problem is that people queue as teams and that brings up their ratings because a mediocre group of three or more people will generally always win against an uncoordinated group of 3. Also you get a lot of flamers who make it through a lot of the early tiers and don't get reported because they're playing with 2-3 other people which pretty much only leaves 1 or 2 people to report them. The number of people I see who just give up 10 minutes into the game and just afk is way too high. It'd be nice if the game would let you screen out people reported for that type of behavior that would be nice.

    Yeah, that is an unfortunate problem and quite difficult to solve correctly. That's why I tend to always play with a party, makes the game a lot more enjoyable when teams are willing to keep playing even after lost fights.

    Honestly, couldn't care less.

    There are already so many teams to follow. Plus Purge will end up something like Qpanda with his team.
    Nothing against the guy personally, I watch his videos all the time and I like him.

    Ah, that question might not have been worded specifically enough. I also don't care why they're going to Korean. I just don't know if the team is at the pro level. Hopefully with more training they'll be amazing.

    I never considered Purge to be pro material, to be honest.

    I don't think he is. Yes, he is good and he could be one of those play-by-play analysts when casting like Wagamama and his QPanda team. All I see is a repeat of history where Zephyr will just die off like Wagamamas team.

    I don't think it's not because they don't play. They just rather play than discuss it on a forum

    Random Ability Draft will be the best thing that has happened to Dota 2.

    Whenever you have Drow Ranger skills in RAD(Random ability draft), grab the Frost Arrow skill (her Q) asap. It works even if you are melee and you can just hit 600 units away. It's crazy.

    Man I wonder what we'll get from the Offering. I've thrown in 5 pages of shit, including the more expensive stuff like mythical couriers, rares I don't use...

    If we only get stuff like ingots I'll be very disappointed
