    I'm going to miss Earthshaker's older calm look. He now looks like he just lost his home.

    the problems with matchmaking were kinda annoying; I'm pretty glad they're fixed now. most of the time both teams would have one or two players that just clearly didn't belong in the match and one or two players who were clearly much better than all the others.

    Full list of new chat-wheel commands:
    Spoiler


    I am personally very pleased with this patch.
    Enjoying the remake of ES overall and the fixes to matchmaking are a god-send. I had a period of time where i got matched into some really really one-sided matches. Doto should be more fun to play now.

    Also the new chat wheel commands synergize really well with the new mute system IMO. Now people have access to all the useful commands even while muted.
    It probably still needs some polishing, oh well.
    Maybe valve could make it so you can type out part of a sentence if you're muted, and if that sentence is a recognized one it'll take a standard one from this system and put it into the chat. Would help with the limit of how many of these you can bind and removes the problem of remembering what key you bound exactly what to if it's one you usually don't use much.

    Isn't "Game is hard" one of the new chat wheel responses? That one's my favorite.

  6. Default Re: Dota 2 Updates


    The changes to match making are nice, hopefully my 2-7am games go better now.

  7. Default Re: Dota 2 Updates


    It is.
    Not sure how i missed it, added it to the list now. Along with some more that i missed.
    But yea Game is hard and I immediately regret my decision are my favourites.

    "I immediately regret my decision"

    This keybind is probably going to wear out first.

    Also, doesn't it seem awfully familiar? Like a certain... blinking and slamming video?

    Skip to 2 minutes and 25 seconds

    I am nearly 100% certain valve took it from the video. They keep tabs on what the community is up to and IIRC they even have a room at their offices with a projector for watching doto.

    "I immediately regret this decision" is a quote from Anchorman, the Anti-Mage video was most likely referencing that.

    I'll also use this thread for valve blog posts that seem to be interesting/have some neat information.

    The 45 second penalty isn't enough because it isn't stopping people from declining queues. The one I had to afk and heard the "Game is ready" sound I was careless, because I knew that by the time I could go back to the pc 45 seconds should've passed. Long queues are fine, but waiting 15-20minutes because people keep cancelling pisses me off. Especially when average waiting time is 3minutes.

    The second part troubles me. Unless I'm partying with some of you, I'm no longer matched with and/or against people who are clearly WAY better than me, which is good. On the other hand, I feel that when playing alone I'm queued with clueless people more often which I don't like at all. I've noticed it's always 1 guy that is completely clueless and messes up in ways that aren't usual. I can tell the other team also has someone like that and that's still unbalanced matchmaking.

    I wonder what's the reason for the first one.
    The second one I kinda like, the problem is I almost never have extremely long wait times but rather a lot of canceled match is ready messages and that's what makes my queues take forever. It's like plenty canceled matches every 3-4minutes. If it stays that way it's going to be more annoying and frustrating to get the message more often but have people cancel it just as often.

    Um, probably to stop the harrasment and prejudices BEFORE the match even starts.
    I've joined several matches wheter I or anyone else with >10 wins gets harrased.
