    I've seen a ton of joke review attempts and all of them were bad. Today Dota 2 community struck gold.

    Account level doesn't matter much if you're an experienced player.

    They should just get rid of the whole "account level" and change the text to "Guaranteed items collected".

    Although it's fun to occasionally hear special people boast how high their account level is, "hurr durr I spent 1000 more hours in the game than you hurr hurr hurr"......yeah sure OK. What's exactly here to be proud of?

    you can doubt all you want - my mrr is still at said 5415 - and what abubakr said it's not about level in this game lol - levels only gets you items.

    if by your standards if i'm at 5415 that means you must be awful if you are twice my level and not even close to my mmr?

    anywhos - anyone going to the international this year as well?! i'm excited but at the same time expenses will suck but i hope it will be worth it

    im only 3.9 mmr it all depends on how you start out ur first 10 games to get that rating
    when u choose to support retards yes ull get low mmr as me but to other 4k is high
    its rare to see people with low lvl account have that kind of mmr,
    slickz from HoN moved to dota 2 now, his rank is same as urs and he play competitive lvls everytime i watch him play solo or party,

    I've gone up from 3300 MMR to 3850 solo currently. Hoping for 4k as well, but I did not set a timeframe for achieving it

    That's really the problem. I don't give a single **** when I play games which results in me jumping from 3,5k-3,9k constantly.

    As much as I love and anticipate TI4, I am also very excited about the post-TI4 drama/disbands/roster changes. Shit will hit the fan when so much money is on the line.
    Pretty sure if Na'Vi.EU won't win this year then they will definitely have roster changes (Dendi and XBOCT will stay of course) since they almost had a change after last years TI.

    I don't know them personally but from what I've seen XBOCT is pretty much a cocky ******* most of the time. Dendi is awesome and deserves everything he gets, he is a good person. Although I am a strong hater for all the "Dendi" hype train.

    Alliance is pretty much the same, cocky bastards almost everywhere. But I love watching them play the most so I try to forget how they are in real life and just focus on the amazing game.

    I've just tried DOTA2 with friends, and I have to say, the normal mode for playing (all pick) is absolutely terrible.

    It's pretty obvious enemy teams are premades when they all don't pick heroes and wait till countdown is over. Once our team locks in, then they PAUSE the game multiple times to be able to discuss and counterpick without losing gold.

    I'm pretty surprised this kind of exploit hasn't been fixed considering how popular DOTA2 is~

    Pretty turned off playing this game with players, will probably just play some AI games wit friends I know. From my impressions from a few player matches, at least in SEA DOTA2 players are so toxic I can't stand it... I don't think I've enjoyed a single game wit enemy players thus far.

    When there are no DCs you can unpause quite quickly to prevent stuff like this. It's pretty difficult to fix this exploit without making it an annoyance for the rest of the players who really need a pause. Best you can do is if they don't pick, don't lock-in until the last second. Then spam unpause unless there is a DC.

    Or you could play Captains Mode/Draft or something like Random Draft, etc.

    I haven't played for almost 2 weeks now. Been busy with other things and Mario Kart 8.

    Captains Mode/Draft is honestly pretty much the same shithole as AP, SD and so on. Chances of meeting more decent players is higher, but I wouldn't count on it.

    It still takes roughly 10 seconds to deal with the pause. Having it happen 2-3 times gives them alot of time to decide~

    Idk, my friends and I are casual. It seems all pick is the more popular option, so people are playing that. I do lock in only as the timer is running out, hence they pause so they can counterpick...

    It's not really fair. People are so concerned about winning they won't even play fair, it's disgusting. I'm really unimpressed by the system so far. If people want to pause, make it so that everyone has to have selected a hero before you can pause. Either that or autorandom a hero for them at timer 0 seconds. It's stupid how people keep pausing jus to get the perfect team to counter yours.

    If there truly is no workaround for this, I guess I'm never going to play DOTA2 against people.
