    How does it work? I've only played HoN before with the PSR system. Does DOTA 2 have the same? I.e. the better you are, the better the players you play with, but you are also expected to play better?

    Don't listen to them trolls.
    The better your performance is - the harder your games become

    I'd say HoN's system works a bit better but it's obviously rediculously simpler. HoN works off the MMR/PSR which is similar/the same as the ELO system where your rating increases/decreases based on the rating of everyone in the game. Theres no other variables to consider and generally it works out somewhat well from what I remember when I played HoN a year ago. Valve is trying to make their own formula and I'd say they still got some work to do

    Which just proved it doesn't work since you are supposed to be matched with equal teammates and equal opponents

    If it really worked,all matches from 1 to 9001 would be the same difficulty,since you also become a better player

    By the way ,the system works like that

    If W/L > 50 = match with retards ,and better enemies
    If W/L < 50 = match with better teammates,and retard enemies

    It'd take a pretty impressive system that could match you up with the correct opponents after a single game and never screws up. Has Valve managed to perfectly calculate player skill from a single game?

    Nope. If W/L < 50 = 60%matches with better teammates 40% matches with completely retarded teammates

    Retarded or not, no system can determine what heroes the selected players are gonna use, what roles will they choose, how well will they be performing the following match (no one is showing consistent performance through the matches), will one team be straight out outpicked etc.

    They force you to team with new players.

    This is how they keep new players in the game, "NOT GETTING OWNED EVERY GAME". DOTA is a very complex and unfriendly game, no new players will stay in the game after losing 20 game straight.

    Forcing 50% winrate is how volvo make them stay, who give a fuck about old players, you will play it anyway.
