post #1461 of 17105
Played a few games yesterday, winning or losing all came down how bad my team was. It seems like if you have at least 3 descent players you will do good but with only 2 you are almost always screwed. On the bright side I always seemed to finish in the top two of my team so practicing and watching matches have made a big difference for me.

Is the matchmaking system broken? I had a few of the better players I was playing with say something about it and was wondering?

I was wondering if there is a channel or a way to make it for OCNers in Dota 2 so that people could gather and start playing together.

Me and my friend are an awesome support combo, me playing as omni and him as dark seer. However if we don't get at least one good carry in a team, the game becomes really tough for us to pull it out..

Would be really cool to get some team together and pwn hard. We play a lot on Friday night (EU time) and during Saturday.

Well that is pretty much how the game works, and is how it should work. As you know Dota is a 5v5 team-based game and if you have 2 or 3 players that are dragging you down there is a good chance you are going to lose. The matchmaking system is fine as far as I know. The more you win the better the players you will be matched with and against. There of course will be the occasional game where someone on your team feeds pretty hard or someone abandons but they should be pretty few and far between. Just keep winning games and never leave them prematurely. Easier said than done, I know. smile.gif

Thats a good idea, pretty sure there is a way to make channels but I can't remember how to do it. Hm...

..Just Googled it quick. I guess this works, at least some people in another forum are saying it does. I suppose anyone here can make the channel if they would like. Let stick to a single name that everyone can remember and maybe a person or two will actually join it. tongue.gif How about just OCN? Or OCN Dota?

"steam -> library -> dota2 -> properties -> shortcuts -> add "-console" -> open game -> type in chat_join *channel name*."

By the way, feel free to message me for some games on Steam if I'm on. smile.gif

I must be the bracket I'm in but I almost always have someone leave the game early, hopefully once I get some more wins I will get into a better bracket with people who know what they are doing. It's never good when someone on your team is 1-28-0 but at least I get a good laugh out of it.

I think just OCN would be good enough since it would be in the dota client (right?)

I've been playing ever since dota 1 was releashed on WCIII haha. I have a ELO of about 1250, so I'm a bit decent.

You'll tend to get more victories the more you play with a team and/or friends. And yes just OCN is fine. smile.gif

1250 ELO in Dotacash? I was rank 2 before they changed the ELO system. After they did that I started playing Dota 2 pretty much exclusively. I had around 3,000 ELO. smile.gif 1250 is good though especially if you play by yourself a lot of the time.

omni/pudge is also a fun combo. Or terrible to go against if your lanemate blows.

FYI that SteamID does not work, tried adding you just now but it says no player ids or groups found.

Have you created that OCN chat channel? I don't see it anywhere on the chat list in Dota.
