Comment Currently, Matchmaker Cripples Nice Players (Score 1) 316

As a Dota 2 player with lots of commends, this makes me a little bit happy. I work hard for those commends. Buuuut ... because I have so many "teaching" commends, I OFTEN get matched with new people. And this really makes me mad. The matchmaker sees that I have tons of "forgiving" and "teaching" commends, and it constantly puts me with players with 0-20 wins, even though I have over 100 wins. In short, I like getting a discount, but I don't like getting a competitive disadvantage. I would rather pay full price, and get fair matchups.

What he's referring to is the fact that Amazon retains the right to cut the price of the books in their Kindle Store without compensating the author. So even if your book costs $20 normally, Amazon can put your book on sale for $1 and give you the same percentage - NOT THE SAME AMOUNT.

People wouldn't give up a fight unless there was a human cost. So the idea that it would be drones is ridiculous. Why would an institution/government waste time killing drones? That won't end the war. If space-war was only drones, then one enemy would take the fight to the population. Basically the concept of space war is a little ridiculous.

Neutrinos are into physicists.
