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.

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.

Whenever a system becomes completely defined, some damn fool discovers something which either abolishes the system or expands it beyond recognition.
