Share on Reddit Dota 2 maker Valve is taking serious action to cut down on the prevalence of smurfing —using a secondary account in order to play against opponents of a lower skill level. Starting next month, Dota 2 players will need to have a unique, valid phone number associated with their account to take part in the game’s ranked matchmaking pool. Unranked play will be unaffected by the change. Valve says that “online services that provide phone numbers are not allowed,” so potential workarounds to create a new “valid” number shouldn’t work. In North America, data from the FCC-backed NANPA can help determine the source of any such online phone numbers, but it’s unclear whether Valve will also be able to confirm international numbers in a similar way. In any case, going to the trouble of creating a fake new phone number is a bit more involved than simply creating a free new Dota 2 account in order to wreck some noobs. And according to Valve , that’s exactly the intent: Players using multiple accounts create a negative matchmaking experience at all skill brackets, so our goal is to add just enough friction to this process that the number of players doing this will be noticeably reduced. Having more players using their primary accounts will have a positive effect on both Ranked and Unranked Matchmaking. Players have until May 4 to register a valid phone number with their Dota 2 account, and phone numbers can’t be passed between accounts without a three-month waiting period.

A simplified explanation of CS: GO ranks The ranking system isn’t as complex as it seems. And you can expect a roller-coaster of emotions for as long as you play it. You can feel the gaming high after ranking up. You can feel the disdain for the game after deranking.
Jan 02, · A matchmaking system on its own is a hard task to implement, though, so statistics and overviews might just do the job for now. I guess what would help the players is getting more feedback how well do they compared to others and that the game encourages a certain kind of gameplay, that is, doing something useful for the team.
THATS IT 2 bronze only district and 2 silver only district, 1 Waterfront and 1 Financial for each threat The LOCKED bronze district would have all gold and explosive guns disabled to protect from dethreating predators and be permanently locked to players rank and above. So if someone under rank wants to dethreat to get to the Locked Bronze District, they will be using the same guns as the noobs. So if your Bronze and join by the default district select, it will put you in the Locked Bronze District.
The silver joiner would connect to the Locked Silver District. No Gold in the Locked Silver District. Semi-Open districts like we have now would be unchanged. Golds could still play in the unlocked Silver District to keep Gold Districts open for looting. Something I have found really nice over the past few years.
Bare in mind that the game with try to auto assign players to a most appropriate threat district, most bronze players won’t use the advanced district select tool so higher threats try to join them. This new system of yours would have to auto assign players into the new locked thread obvious or it isn’t going to work. I will say this will lesson the problem of mixed threats and abusive higher threat players but I am unconvinced and again the number of players in servers are too low to add further districts to servers.

Halo 4 Ranks and Other MP Features!!
The ranked ladder revamp has been announced! We’ll be seeing the changes go live at the beginning of the March season which is roughly a month away!

Fixed a matchmaking issue where if anyone joins the Shootaround AFTER the owner set the game to Private, it would reset the match to Ranked. The other team involved would search for an opponent and be unable to find one.
Serapth, on 11 February – Truth is, this is the game for everybody. The human mind is a very selective beast and only remembers the most extreme examples. This is why we are either all rockstars or victims in our own minds, we only remember the matches where the matchmaker stacked the house against us, or when we pulled off that epic 7 kill round. The “norm” is somewhere in the middle.

Good matchmaking is one of those black box features that is never readily apparent to the player, but colors every experience a player has in a competitive multiplayer title. When matchmaking works well, you never notice it. While the shift may have solved some problems, it created many more, and players are still adjusting to the difference. So, what is matchmaking?

I really think that the entry lvl 25 will create a noob slaughterhouse during the first month or even later, lot’s of rage, many noobs feeling totally underwhelmed. To reach lvl 25 is around 15 hours by solo queue, maybe 12 hours in party. I just feel extremely worried about players between 16 to 22 years old that grew playing FPS on consoles or just some single player stuff on PC and MOBA getting to play against grouped guys that will try to get to lvl 25 as fast as possible Why I say this?
I played the open Beta, and the stress test. It was fun and I didn’t felt overwhelmed, everything seems kind of balanced, can’t say anything about it yet, is too soon.. I’ve played CS Beta 5. On day 10 5 days after open beta launched I played on the Chinese Battle. Kill streak through the roof and the oposing team couldn’t even move the payload to the first point, I was using D. I can’t imagine how the guys were feeling not being able to leave their base in peace.
I don’t feel comfortable with this decision

LOVE the new matchmaking system! in General Discussion. Vesper. 21/04/ 1. Smurfs will be much less due to the fact that you’d require a phone number to play Ranked now! 2.

All-Stars , and claims to be the most played game in the world. Yes, even more than the behemoth World of Warcraft. Like DotA, League of Legends gives you control of one Champion, who has unique attacks and abilities, and sends you out against enemy Mooks and Champions to earn experience points and gold. Your goal is to destroy the enemy base the Nexus by first eliminating the turrets that defend it, which usually requires a heap-load of Cannon Fodder Mooks to tank the turret blasts while the Champions whittle it down.
There are also a number of secondary objectives scattered around the map which grant significant bonuses to whoever claims them. The Framing Device originally revolved around the titular “League of Legends”, a magical battle arena used to settle disputes between the competing factions living in the magical fantasy world of Runeterra. The lore has developed in a massive way since then , employing a Continuity Reboot that writes out the League entirely in favour of focusing upon the living tales of individual characters and entire nations that populate Runeterra.
