        Fuck u @:


          where ideas like “having fun” are thrown out the window in the name of competition and +25 MMR.

                  @raizoh youre a my friend


                    it would nice if they keep it up


                      Somewhere along the lines of the first dozen
                      I assume this is how I get people to like moi?

                          At the MMR level I'm at (low) "all random" picks better teams than the average captain.

                          Arif A.

                            Good idea

                              I like your eggs man !


                                The problem with Dota (or competitive gaming in general) is that often people go into a lobby, thinking "well I have to not only outplay the enemy but also play such that my team doesn't drag me down". This makes people all think that they HAVE to pick last, all the while their team is losing gold because 3-4 of the players on the team have their hero as Abbadon still and they haven't said a word even though the game is literally played on a keyboard.

                                They should add a number 1-5 that indicates what position they want to play. Its incredibly frustrating picking first because no one says anything and I don't want to lose gold, and then everyone either picking 4-5 heroes or 1-2 heroes with no thought of laning synergy.

                                Also that would help especially when I am playing a game and I am the only one that speaks English. Its hard to win when your team doesn't even understand your language or vice versa.


                                  I'd say ranked Dota was a much better place without all pick...seriously


                                    Remove mode all pick at mmr or change with mode single draft its better i think..

                                      Why doesnt Elder Titan has an hyperlink like Lion? I find this racist! Kappa

                                        @Hyatt. I tell my team that if they force me to pick first I hit the random button. That usually helps the scenario your describe.

                                        love my team

                                          Guy rushes to pick captain, doesn't listen to teammates suggestions, everyone gets stuck with shit heroes, -25mmr. gg


                                            if you cannot balance heroes, remove All Pick so OP heroes get banned LMAO

                                              What if Valve just set a game mode with positions 1, 2 , 3, 4 and 5. And pre-select heroes that are suitable to fit these positions?

                                                Two times captain die nothing, so no bans all random. After trat I stopped playing ranked...

                                                JOHN TRAZ DE VOLTA

                                                  @Salty McSalterson I'd rather just give you a random


                                                    1-rd heheeh


                                                      @0n3.Eternal. Better hope it's not mid hero, since you're probably dying to go there.


                                                        why ?
                                                        badman ?
                                                        the 3k mmr and 4k scrubs who spam to got higher mmr
                                                        so badman cant pick spec
                                                        and the scrubs cant pick OD
                                                        this is good balance from dota
                                                        thank you


                                                          Heh, who needs ranked when you have unranked?


                                                            And it was beautiful to play RD again without 5-8 minute wait times. It cetainly weeded out the dregs for a brief time. I saw a VERY nice mmr bump during RD only games.


                                                              love it support player myself was 26/30 game in the patch of CM love it , now gone 3/15 game since the return of the AP , need a return bak to CM so i don't play with dipshit carry or afk jungler

                                                              [ALL HAIL THE TINY SNAKE ...

                                                                I think all pick should be removed straight up from ranked. It's a team game yet no one communicates and everyone focuses on themselves


                                                                  @Laxus or listens too much to suggestions... I once had a guy pick 5 cores cause teammates were spamming suggestions for which core to pick next and he really wanted to last pick himself jungle lc...


                                                                    I still massively preferred the old RD, 24 heroes in the pool meant that you had to almost always change up the hero you played. It made the game more fun for players that play a wide pool of heroes.


                                                                      u Ruin dota 2 if u delete ALL PICK mode becauce ppl s cant spam OD or spec or fuckin slark...... only good for in low mmr idiots dont go jungle but not need delete all pick PUB=all pick. PRO tournaments=CM


                                                                        dont remove ALL pick remove fuckin MMR system. lose= -25 win= +25 LOL. Some ppl s can play 40 0 25 Invoker and lose game cuz 4 feeders. and this perfect player lost 25 mmr.))))) REMOVE MMR SYSTEM. KDA healing damage warding dewarding. its a total idiotic mode lose -25 win +25 and ultra total reatrd 0 80 0 can goted +25 because have TRYHARD carry or midder. REMOVE SYSTEM not all pick

                                                                        go tell reddit

                                                                          @~Hyatt Well the problem with that is you're splitting up the players into positions they feel more comfortable in. That means more queueing times, more difficult for lower mmr players to raise their mmr (since all they do is carry no matter what).

                                                                          League of Legends does something similar and it's going well but League of Legends is also easier to learn.
                                                                          There's a jungler, support, carry, mid and tanky top laner in LoL. DotA is a lot less one dimensional and it could confuse lower mmr players to think that the game can only be played one way. Which is untrue. I'm not sure what the solution to the Ranked games is. Maybe your idea would make it a lot better but I just can't see Valve making that decision.


                                                                            Since AP was disabled, I was forced to play in Cap Mode (I use 30% of heroes, so random didn't worked for me) and I loved it. I'm 1k mmr and in this MMR, toxic players are forced to play with the captain choices (always asking them first which heroes they use well). From that day I've start playing CM in all my solo MMR games. I've won 6 games in a row by now.

                                                                            Powdered Toast Man

                                                                              keep all pick but allow each player to ban 1 character.. That might actually be fun


                                                                                Thank you Dota for doing this to me. - 500mmr


                                                                                  If the rage of a dota 2 player when all pick was removed will be turned into a dollar, I'll just go buy a lambo.


                                                                                    1st lol ez mmr


                                                                                      I remember on RD, whenever Spec is Available... Player on either side AUTO 1st PICK... And it is SHIT...

                                                                                      I only enjoy RD when Spec is not available.. seriously...

                                                                                      JOHN TRAZ DE VOLTA

                                                                                        I love to play Captain's Mode on 1k: All these noobish heroes playing: Chaos, Pudge, Ursa, Shaman, Warlock, Drow... It's like: Noob Heroes Mode. And there's nothing to do on it. UNLESS, you have a really good support. The one's that gonna win are the luckiest one's, or the one's with more steam at the moment. There's not much a hero like this can do by yourself to outstand other one's. ONLY CLICKING CLIKCING CLIKING RIGHT FUCKING CLICK AND STUPID CLICHE COMBOSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSssSSSsss

                                                                                        JOHN TRAZ DE VOLTA

                                                                                            Some SEA players.. In 4.5k bracket.. They say "noob captain"..noob pickings.. "Ban this hero"..pick this hero.. "Let me mid"..its hard to communicate with those players ..blaming you as their captain.. Hahah.. Lol

                                                                                            JOHN TRAZ DE VOLTA

                                                                                              So, wht's the deal to play with OD? Why does he gets that much Mana so fast he can Infinite Arcane Orb attack? It's like he doesn't need any items to own, the items are just bonuses consequence of its Arcane Orb attack. It's like Sillencer right click one but way more overpowered. Imagine, it's like having Enchantress Impetus infinite, it would be just so OP.


                                                                                                So Wtf?! I just played a game in Captain's Mode, with players way skilled than I am, I mean higher MMR, and we won and I get 11?!?!?! MMR. Why? If I play with very noobs guys I get 25 mmr!!! So, what's the deal? I made a decent game. I played as a support and managed to have a 4.9 kda, which it's not so bad for a support. And I get 11 MMR? Kinda like charity mmr, they "donate" to me, almost nothing.

                                                                                                Цей коментар був відредагований
