I haven't been able to follow the quals this week, but given the comments thus far is there any point?

It's interesting how much money flows into this game for TI and Valve reciprocates with Young Invoker.

I'm so happy to see the mmr ranks rework because I loved the ranked roles concept but hated the fact that you have to play with Plus to participate.

I think the more granular nature will benefit primary support players much more than the solo rank ever did.

Edit: As a support if you hit certain metrics of fight participation, support items, and vision, shouldn't splitting rank to focus on support result in a large leap over current mmr regardless if you win or not?

ultimately the real evaluation of that role-expertise concept, is more like "do you win while doing support things".

The simplicity of the system is one of its strengths.

More so I was hoping that supports would be less evaluated on if their whiny crybaby chose to play the game rather than throw.

If you do all of your support work while your carries throw their tantrums you can still see some mild success.

Do people even like on ear headphones? All of the casters spend a ton of time under the grip of their headsets and I'd think that would add up after a while.

http://blog.dota2.com/2019/09/matchmaking-update-for-the-next-ranked-season/

for those of you who still play, a bunch of (potentially) good changes coming to ranked

These changes look amazing, all I see in ranked right now is support pos 4 Invoker going Midas carry and pos 1 Carry afk farm with 0 tower damage and less hero damage than pos 5 support.

Along with role reports it should help clear this out.

Edit: Am worried about behavior score ban as I'm a filthy techies picker, that even though I carry and win my games, I get all kinds of reports from the salty enemy.

Well what's your behavior score? I'm sure that it has to be pretty drat low to get into the territory they are talking about in that post there. In my mind an exceptionally low behavior score is something like under 1k? Maybe under 500? They don't go into the negatives right?

An aside: I noticed my behavior score dropping a bit and I made an effort to clean up and I'm back up near 10k!

Wow, didn't even know it went that low, I'm between 5 and 6k on a bad week where I pick like 20 techies games, but my winrate averages 75% with techies. I probably don't have to worry.

GOOD TIMES ON METH posted:

I'm a bit confused by this post, do you want people to start reporting pos 4 Invoker? I think it usually sucks in poo poo tier mmr land but it isn't like exploiting ranked queue or anything.

They queue as support, pick Invoker and build as pos 1. Right now you can only report as did not play lane, rather than did not play role.

What about a Midas recipe cool down on par with a gem?

First person to it makes sense but the choice to wait or actually get other items is the trade off.

For D+, they completely poo poo the bed by releasing zero content when the community is actively offering new cosmetics to sell, with the only request that they get some semblance of compensation for the work. That it took this long for Valve to hand cosmetic creation back to their own workshop was SUCH a misstep that they've probably lost 50% of their D+ subs.

I really want to love this game, but I just don't understand how a game can receive so little work in a year's time.

It's seems like the crew responsible for updates sits around all year doing nothing, but as long as the game makes money management doesn't care.

Is there just a lot of unfinished work that sits around?
