    It only really happens if the enemy are a 5 man premade (hence they really tryhard, they must be on voice?). But yea, even those games where there isn't pause-abuse I've not really enjoyed any due to other reasons (mostly ability abuse players who purposely kill their teammates and throw).

    For example Nature's Prophet traps you in trees one time for the enemy to kill, can be a mistake. Twice, three times? Nope, that's on purpose. Same with people who abuse Force Staff~

    Think I'll stick to bots for now.

    if ure that new you wont have MMR then, you need to be at certain lvl in game to get MMR, if ure playing normal matches yes u meet alot of idiots who just trolls if u want normal people then play MMR (ranked matchmaking) tho theyre more serious, ive seen someone noobed it he even say sorry i know i noobed it.

    Yeah, that's why you are getting ranked with terrible people probably. Once you establish solo MMR things should change for the better a lot.

    yeah you can't play ranked until you are level 13, so i think you're around 3000.

    honestly, i've NEVER met a 5man stack that actually tryhard in pub. they all play for fun and do wonky comps.
    then again, i never play AP because people are generally really toxic there.

    You should try playing with my Dota 2 friends. All sub 2k and just above 3k.

    From my few games in AP, yeah every single one of them extremely toxic. And yea also have people treating AP pub matches like tournaments and doing every single underhanded thing to win. Extreme tryharding~

    Alot of my friends really like DOTA, but right now I'm not convinced it's really as good as it's hyped up to be.

    That is really unfortunate that it happens so often to you. It rarely ever happens when we play, maybe for just one player out of the 5 but never for the entire team. And when it does happen it is usually an AFK or DC. I know it can be hard and you've probably heard this before, but it does tend to get better the more you play. As you climb up the ladder and get out of where the majority of players are, it is usually better. That is not to say you still won't get bad games, bad games are just part of pub dota.

    Hopefully Valve can fix this issue if it happens so often. Maybe something like no pausing until creeps spawn unless there is a DC? I think that could work as you shouldn't even be AFK during draft.

    I sent you an invite, there were many with your name. Easiest way is to give your email or the name you login with.

    Finally 3,9k. Getting here from 3,6k was frustrating which reminded me why I ****ing hated "trying".

    Patch is mostly cosmetics. New chests too. Sets are good for the most part. Bought 4 of each :3

    - - - Updated - - -

    Well, it's done. 4000 MMR reached well before TI4 :3
    Was easier and faster than expected.





    ...and yes, there is a difference between 3,5k people and where I am now. Maybe not drastic but the overall quality of games is higher and each individual is much more skilled compared to 3,5k range.

    apparently the matchmaking in china is way too tryhard hahaha

    everyone smoke ganks counterwards everything - compared to the matchmaking in higher mmrs here - but i prefer that over intense gameplay haha.

    i played with The King and a bunch of other pros last week and i was surprised how he didn't yell as much as he used to O=

    King Raven? Last time I played with him he yelled all game, was pretty funny.
    Queued with/against him 3 times in a row. He raged so much.

    Wow nice. Did you buy any compendium points? I'm thinking of just buying the immortals from the steam market.

    Buying from Steam market will be infinitely cheaper.

    HOWEVER

    I really love the BP boost so I just bought my way up to lvl 100 compendium.

    When you buy from Steam Market be wary if the items have gems in them. Don't buy the ones without gems.
