DOTA 2 Start Banning Smurfs & Booster
suicide | 
Japan CommitKMS 
Upcoming dota updates will improve matchmaking experiences even more; - Smurfs ban - Bad behaviour ban & punishment - More Accurate Rank distribution - Better ELO calculation - 100 H minimum to start playing ranked - Scheduled Banwaves CS:GO when? Valve needs to expand CS:GO dev team and pays them better. Dota gets pass almost every majors & TI, which means ez money for valve and also dota dev aka icefrog. Comparing csgo dev to icefrog is unfair because gaben puts them (csgo dev) in a garage to work & only pays them $1k - $2k per month. Instead of investing more $ to cs development, our lord choose to sell prime matchmaking. Happy that i wont be destroyed by immortal smurfs but also sad i cant troll noobs in ancient or lower. Thank you for reading i just wake up. Have a nice day.

2019-09-18 09:40
+1 still hard stuck silver after 1300 hours and i have given up hope. Ive won 6 ranked games in a row and no rank up. Ive lost games were ive had 47 kills. Smh my head...
2019-09-18 10:04
Depending on your ELO, 6 might not be enough for a rankup. Took me 9 to go from SMFC to GE. Also 47 kills doesn't mean shit, especially if you're going for exit frags all the time x)
2019-09-18 10:11
9 games wtf thats tough. Also they werent exi frags it was either me holding site or entry fragging. teams mates go full braindead mode mid round :(

Welp GE rankup is hardest because you can't play against players with significantly higher ELO rating. It took me about 9 wins aswell.
2019-09-18 10:41
Took me like 3-4 wins actually. The hardest was from DMG to LE, I won around 10 games in a row and some point and never ranked up. And when I did, it was 4 ties and 4-5 wins in a row I really don't get this system whatsoever

I was in Europe start of the year, much better experience there. I went from n2 to mge. Never saw the same person in the next game aswell.
2019-09-18 18:55
You need more rounds win. Also i play in OCE once with my aus friend, it's way easier but also has a lot of smurfs (not as much as sea & china tho)
2019-09-18 10:30
Play it daily, it’s rare to not vs cheater or smurf. Even when you 5 man queue. It’s a joke.

Game yesterday had 2 russians, blocking, throwing flashes, shooting teammates and talking shit all the time on mic so we cannot hear the enemies just because they wanted to lose the game to derank. Funny part is they have like 4 pages of comments on their profile saying they were using aimhack/walls... and toxic with teammates, some comments from more than a year ago, but they are still there, "playing". I reported them and I'm pretty sure all the other users commenting there did it too, but no vac or overwatch ban on them. I really don't get it.
2019-09-20 11:25
play with higher ranked friends?
2019-09-18 10:32
Dont even have a full squad most of the time and i dont have any other friends high enough. All of them sitting about the 200-400 hours. Had a solid squad end of last year to the start of this year but all of them quit csgo to focus on school/got bored
2019-09-18 11:35
sad
2019-09-18 11:34
Im with 4.6k behavior score but cant go to a pc right now. Am I in danger?
2019-09-18 06:57
Probably safe for now. Some smurfs already getting 10-25 years ban

2019-09-18 09:37
Some time ago I had problems which caused my game to crash during the loading screen which led to like 4 or 5 abandons in a short time. reddit.com/r/DotA2/comments/bwi724/battl.. Been in the trench ever since
2019-09-18 09:40
Are u safe? One of my friends with low behaviour score got 19 years ban 😂
2019-09-20 09:19
Idk man I moved to a new city due to university, havent gotten my pc yet. I hope not. How low exactly was ur friend
2019-09-20 11:13
He didnt say his score. But he often abandoned / afk midgame at night
2019-09-20 11:22
Ive never done that. Dropped from 9k to 5k due to pc crashes (around 5 in a span of week) then dropes from 5 to 4k due to being toxic af

I hope they won't ban smurfs in cs go because I have 8 smurf accounts lol
2019-09-18 07:00
For cs:go, they need to prioritize to minimalize cheaters first then smurfs. I dont really mind smurfs but cheaters, i hope their mom get cancer and die slowly. Pls no ban its a joke

how smurfs are detected in Dota??
2019-09-18 09:37
Their hero stats always way higher than the rank they are smurfing in. Example: gold per minute, action per minute, wards destroyed, heal per minute
2019-09-18 09:45
what if you are not smurfing, but having a really good game?
2019-09-20 11:25
You will not having 10 good games in a row with 150 - 300% stats than average of others in your rank. Also you have your personal average as well, legends say dota can track how many "good games" you have per games based on your game history.
2019-09-20 11:29
well makes sense. In my opinion smurfs ruin the game too, so that was a big step. Hope they make that too in cs:go

2019-09-18 09:38
I quit cs and back to dota in 2018 because tons of cheaters when the game went free
2019-09-18 09:46
Wtf u drunk really, since cs went free there is basically no cheaters cuz prime and trust-factor system. They all stuck playing cheaters vs cheaters on free acounts without prime and bad trust-factor.
2019-09-18 11:16
Try SEA I have 80ish steam games Lvl 100ish steam Account since 2012 2.4 k hours cs go Tons of market transaction Above average TF I get atleast 1 notification of teammate / enemy banned of cheating per week
2019-09-18 11:20
How can you get them when you quit cs? XD
2019-09-18 11:26
I play 1-2 games a day now since july. I quit in 2018/early 19 and started to come and go in cs
2019-09-18 11:29
I played cs for the whole time mostly solo faceit mm only with friends who are playing cs for fun. We played like 300/400mm sinve this game went free and there was maybe 4/5 cheaters? But i remeber in 2017 when there was a spinbot kid in everygame on global level XD So i quit matchmakin and start playing only faceit. When prime come and next trustfactor etc. i started back to mm and there is no cheaters and i can enjoy it alot.
2019-09-18 11:38
"mm only with friends who are playing cs for fun. We played like 300/400mm sinve this game went free and there was maybe 4/5 cheaters? " I envy you. Trully We met more cheaters than smurfs out here. A lot of asians known to cheat especially in FPS games. If u ever play pubg, apex, cod, u know.
2019-09-18 11:43
Back then i played H1Z1 and there was a plague of chinese players who are move to european servers i don't remeber why but there was alot of cheaters in this time. And they also make like a 30/40 group find themselves in game and kill all european on servers first. 10:30 (they make a test who is chinese) xD youtube.com/watch?v=D6DgxpxQozA this video is a streamer* from china who are teamup with viewers but they make group like that in everygame)

I can only dream. These changes would make the matchmaking experience drastically better.
2019-09-18 10:04
I heard they will upgrade the ranked roles too. So if enemy midlane is a immortal, so does yours
2019-09-18 10:25
Banning smurfs is the most idiotic thing ever. Only people who complain about smurfs are crybabies. You get better faster by playing vs better people. If you cry about smurfs go play vs bots.
2019-09-18 10:28
Not everyone plays to get better some just want to game with their friends after a job
2019-09-18 10:31
If they play for fun they shouldn't complain about getting destroyed then. It wont matter. And you dont face smurfs every game you play.
2019-09-18 10:36
0/8
2019-09-18 10:38
If you play for fun it wont matter if you win or lose. And you dont face smurfs every game. The biggest problem is we need to have unranked 5v5 so smurfs who want to play with friends for fun can play there. Go reply again with 0/8 because you have no argument.
2019-09-18 10:55
0/8

after a job you have a casual which is literally the same as ranked but without numbers lol

It doesn't work that way in dota. Boosters will destroy you without you being able to do anything about it. It's like playing vs aimbot in an fps game.

2019-09-18 10:52
You play solo? If so, good luck suffering. Communication is terible in solo, + tilting is not avoidable, either u or your teammate I always play with a minimum of 3 of my friends, 2 in cs.

If u dont have friends to play a competitive game with, better move on to singleplayer game. Unless u want to do a lot of homework like anger management, etc which is very tiring. I was in that situation before

Smurf deserves VAC ban!
2019-09-18 10:54
how can you proof that someone is smurfing? dumb move
2019-09-18 11:12
Statistic. If a Legend's average of playing Tiny is - 5/3/9 - 450 gpm - 87 lh 23 denies - and way more statistic And if john smurfing 3 games with tiny with 150 - 300% of the average stats, he's detected smurfing. + any other heroes
2019-09-18 11:23
or maybe he plays game for the first time and he is actually really good? statistic isn't proof here
2019-09-18 11:34
Nah. Dota is different. U cant rekt everyone in your first 200 hours no matter if u came from league or hon, except dota 1 but the meta is way different & the mechanics not always the same. To achieve 150-300% more than average is not normal. In cs someone can become semi pro after playing 1K hours if he's talented, in dota u need atleast 3k to be a semi pro. Pro has 13K - 20K hours

2019-09-18 11:37

2019-09-18 11:37
fact is, There is not enough money you can milk from CS, unlike Dota. Where manchildren always itch on getting the coolest RGB skins on their heroes.
2019-09-18 11:43
U can milk more out of csgo than of Dota. Especially before they fucked up gambling/market
2019-09-18 12:17
Csgo is very profitable too, it's just about Valve policies of letting developers choose which game they wanna work on so the csgo dev team is comparably small

If I was a new player and had to play 100 hours before playing ranked, I'd quit the game rofl
2019-09-18 18:56
gaben wouldnt care much about you tbh. and you shouldnt play competitively if u dont know the basic
2019-09-18 21:41
If I play against other players that don't know the basics then what's the problem? 100hrs are way too long to unlock the main gamemode
2019-09-19 14:26
know that Dota's source of income are the veterans who have more than 5 years of playing this game, so the update will definitely draw in players who quit because of smurfs. i can definitely see this is a WIN for valve
2019-09-19 04:20
But what is it worth if they don't attract new players? Long term they'd lose all their playerbase
2019-09-19 14:26
people been saying this for years. nt tho ir8 your iq 1/8
2019-09-19 14:58
They've been saying this for years when the update got just announced?
2019-09-19 14:59
people will always complain with changes. especially the ones that not playing at all (hmm) and the ones that barely spend $ on the game, saying the game will be dead if the dev decision is against theirs. i r8 your emotion intelligence too, 0.5/8 ur b8 1.5/8
2019-09-19 15:00
I don't care what people have been saying. Can you not accept honest critizism for your beloved game? I am not saying I know everything, I'm giving my opinion on the matter. If you can not understand this, I might as well talk to my wall
2019-09-19 15:03
feel free to talk to your wall, you guys speak the same language.
2019-09-19 15:04

You know that you're talking to a 12 year old when he is trying to "win" a discussion bye bye
2019-09-19 15:07
like the other guy said, a HUUUGE percentage of dota players are veterans(have played warcraft dota). these are their main source of income, the loyal players who will only play dota for the rest of their life. its best to cater to these people and make them happy, kudos to the dota dev team for figuring this out. dota is unattractive for new players anyway cuz of its complexity
