    Solo q is a cancerous environment in general, and anyone who thinks [x] will change player behavior is delusional. This update was more or less a nail in the coffin for people who smurf at lower MMRs (I figured out a way like 2 yrs ago on how you can still make a low unranked MMR smurf and bypass Valve's detection system, though I grew bored of it after like 3 games and returned to my main acct) and the restoration of the old report system. Everything else is eyewash for the uncouth masses.

    I'm sure if you can't afford a phone/SIM card you've got more pressing issues to worry about than the eligibility to play R A N K E D.

    Thing is I used to be a pretty good player (3.5k peak when I was working full time and not really trying that hard) but without the forced losses from hidden pool I probably would have been at +2000 MMR. That's about 5500 - bigger MMR than most pro players calibrating at the time.

    EG pays a salary, right? So if I could have been an EG player that's demonstrable lost wages.

    Deep down, your average Reddit retard wants...no, more like needs, to blame an external force or factor because s/he isn't at the desired MMR. If it's not people walking down mid and destroying their items, it's "Waga's smurfing" or "[insert nationality/ethnic group here]."

    Same shit with the hidden pool back in 2015

    "omg I can't win 5k games now after BS got nerfed, must be some hidden low priority queue" ~ imfamous

    In a month or so, people will find another reason to complain about matchmaking. Valve could literally hire moderators and pay them $40/hour, 40 hrs/week to evaluate reports/games to identify "game ruiners"/mete out punishment, and people would still be bitching and moaning.

    its not really as much about these things being reasons that they're low mmr as it is the games they have are super unfun

    if i was in their place i probably would feel somewhat similarly, u really cant deny the fact that some of these problems exist

    think now there just needs to be role queueing and ranked and maybe the regional matchmaking shit brought back and itll be good

    first game i tried the only solo mode and everyone was bad at dota surprise surprise

  17. #77
    this only solo player idea is something enforced by bad players that cant play games without getting carried

  18. #78
    There can't be role queueing when There are heroes like weaver and sand king and Magnus and bat rider running around. Oh and rubick
