The reason Riot developed LOL is because the WC3 engine is so limiting to this game style. Most of the DOTA development is ducttaping code to work where it shouldn't.

This game is free to play, so you don't have to pay until you feel ready to.

You can create a practice game with friends and bots to get used to heroes and play the games you want. 10 friends = 1 good game.

I bought the CE. I regret doing so prematurely.

Then unfortunately for you, you dug your own grave. If you want the right to complain over having a grave, you have to not be the one who dug it.

Sweet job Riot Staff, nice to see you guys taking an interest in really polishing the back-end of the game. Really happy to see this from a free game, keep up the awesome

You know what you should really really do.
If I have some users on my IGNORE list, then I should NEVER be paired with them in the same team.
I mean, if I ignored that user, I must have a reason right ...
So, please make this adjustment as soon as possible

So I know this is an old thread but I personally wonder if you compensated for outliers in average data or sampling error. And I'm sure there has to be plenty of confounding variables such as: How many of these games are tournament games, what if some the data used in the sample was from people who intentionally ruined the game (I'm sure there's plenty of points like that).

I think to perfect such a matchmaking system would require constant tuneups and monitoring of spreadsheet averages and what not.
