    Ah k. I'm on 8 wins 6 losses so maybe that's why.

    Just had a great game. Lost it mainly due to one giant noob on our team who fed massively. Apart from that it was evenly matched and a lot of fun :)

    I found US/Asia games take just over 1min.

    Aussie can be up to about 4mins.

    You have to set your location preferences in the custom settings on the search screen before you start looking.

    Go to Matchmaking Settings (Play tab > bottom of the map) & select Australia. Average wait time is shown on screen.

    only played a few games.. god theres so many noobs and leavers... any penalty for rage quitting?

    im find the gameplay is very much like original dota, i think hon is much faster and probably better gameplay.

    Fucking hell I'm struggling to have any games without leavers.

    Also having plenty of games ruined by complete noobs. E.g game I just had. Huskar casually gets fed 3 kills in mid within first few minutes of the game by some retard who kept casually walking in and dying. Of course then he's been fed enough to casually walk around the map killing anyone stupid enough to not run or gank him.

    Late game I was able to easily solo kill even 2-3 at once of the other teams heroes but got owned by huskar due to him being 8 levels higher than me(and everyone else) and having epic items.

    How many battle points or levels do I need to progress out of the noobs pool FFS. I had by far the second best score/gold/level in that game yet I still get recorded as a loss because some idiot on my team fed them. Oh and we had a mid game rage quitter in that game too :thumbup:

    This is and always has been part of the game (more so in original Dortar). Only way around it is to make some friend and team up for games. I made an OCAU dota2 steam group awhile back I am sure if you join that you will find people to play with.

    nope, and theres no vote to concede or kick if you got a retard in your team feeding intentionally.

    Just have to sit at the fountain and wait it out.

    No free courier at the start of the game either :( still i'm "dealing" with it

    Now had a game go the other way lol, some noobs on other team, harassed them and got 2 kills within first few minutes. Then just fed on those 2 noobs (sniper and enigma) and by mid game could just walk around soloing their whole team. Feel bad for the other guys on other team who weren't bad but had no chance due to their team mates feeding massively.

    You get put in a higher bracket when you're queuing with a friend (that is of equal or greater skill level). So you're probably against higher skilled players and thus have fewer noobs.
