Axe remains mad, and we loose another teamfight. Axe now sells all items and feed divine
Invoker is nearly crying over Voice Chat
Invoker abandons 10 seconds before we loose
SK did nothing of note the whole game

Tell me Valve, are you punishing me?
Is this the price I'm paying for my past games?

This is my redemption song
I need you more than ever right now
Can you hear me now?

Cause we're gonna tryhard now
Even if my wards seem meaningless
It's like I'm carrying the weight of my team

I wish there's a way somehow
That I can save every one of us
But the truth is that I'm only 3k

Maybe if I keep believing my dreams will come to life...

After all my rating fades
Signs of past wins, washed away
I can still, still feel a gentle breeze

No matter how hard I play
Signs of loss, still remain
And our mid, has become my enemy

Tell me Frog, are you punishing me?
Is this the price I'm paying for my past wins?

Nope, I still need to. To many games coming out around the same time. Right now I am really into Persona 5. I am hoping to finish Nier Automata after that though.

With the return of the Solo Queue, solo players who enter Ranked Matchmaking can now choose to be matched only with other solo players.

Nice.

This is a good idea. It will definitely help make ranked a better experience.

I would like to see them take this one step further for QoL reasons, and have an "Accept" button available via phone app, but I doubt it will happen.

I can understand that as i haven't even started P5 yet. Luckily the constant stream of interesting games has died down a bit now so i have time to go back and actually finish some of them.

Was waiting for this to come to DOTA after they did it with CS:GO
Any CS:GO players here that can tell us how this affected their games?

I'm happy about the true solo queue as i was bummed out when they removed it. I don't really mind playing against a stack. I can handle that just fine solo... The problem is when you are stuck playing with a stack that refuses to communicate with you.

You can do that though. I use an app called NineOuttaTen which allows me to accept queues and even choose hero in draft! You can see the chat and everything. It's good stuff.

https://www.nineouttaten.io

Been a while since I've used it though, I see they have added a draft assistant now? Huh. Anyway, it works pretty damned well.

There should be a special hoop for us here in the Philippines instead of linking phone numbers. Sim cards are like 10 pesos (they pay you to have it if I am going to convert that in US $ lol) here. Government-issued IDs or snail mail code verification in home address, I guess? So that I can beat them up in real life, too. loljk.

How's Clinkz this patch? The changes to towers made me think Clinkz would be more valuable being someone that can kill them quickly solo (and is a natural Deso carrier so he can do well with a group).

All I know is from the 2 games I played so far (1-1) team actually coordinated picks and during game even with a whiner in game 1 who gave up 10 min in.

We'll see if this keeps up, but let's not pretend like it's just people who aren't capable of introspection that complain about ranked.

I watched Fenrir play against Arteeshit... he built PT > Soul Ring > Medaliion > Deso > Solarcrest



Need play it myself, however that seems to be the popular build

I don't know any of the rules. I just throw down cards.
It's not as streamlined like Hearthstone or magic. Is there strategy and deck builds?
