    Is there ELO in Dota 2 or is winning useless? How does matchmaking work then?

    It doesn't.

    Unless you stack a team like many of the players here will tell you, welcome to the random draw of any players in the pools you have selected.

    As a 60% win with over 400 games played, I am constantly getting matched with players with less than 50 games played. Unless you build your team before you go in, don't expect much of anything.

    *edit

    my record is not even good, nor am I saying I am pro, but its just an example of how the system, isn't really a system at all. I mean right now I am in a game with a 6 win 50 game player. How? I have NO idea.

    Now I'm dissappointed... By far the only reason for me to actually try-hard was to get matchmade with better ones in future :S

    There is raiting (not sure if ELO, MMR or something else; IIRC there was a way to check it via console). It doesn't take qty of games played into account and it is used to split players into 3 skill cathegories.

    And since higher W/L ratio is easier to maintain when you have less games, you know...

    Your ultrakilling Rylai (especially in a team totally welping otherwise) is a reason good enough IMO :)

    There is a hidden elo, before you could see it through the console but they fixed it.

    You will get better match-making in the future. You know, 'cause the game's in beta! Just wait patiently and they'll implement a proper system sooner or later.

    I just did check out and I was playing with many 55%+ W/L players last match, but they did suck, so no idea :S
