    @EternaLEnVy1991 Youre a pathetic loser who takes its own frustration to others. Kicking players will not win you TI because the main problem here is you. You suck at dota and you cant even accept that. You dont listen to people when they tell you you suck because youre an arrogant person.

    My game is getting stuck on loading screen when i play pubs, i have to restart dota everytime but it doesn't dc me on game before 20sec into the start of the game. Any1 else with this problem/ any tips how to fix it

    This was a thread about Dota 2 and its roster inconsistency, and an idea that might solve a little of its problems. #dota2 @ESLDota2 @DOTA2 @BTSGoDz @followNoxville @Blitz_DotA @ODPixel @keepingitKyle @TobiWanDOTA

    @Daymngle @NahazDota I can't speak for Nahaz & I'm not personally against commenting on players' character in itself. But I think there's a way to do it professionally. I would agree Dota has a problem of analysts being too afraid to criticise, but I don't think that means we should attack people.

  • Zvangi Erdem (@Zvangi) reported

    @NewshamDota @DotACapitalist @BTSGoDz @pinocalub @followNoxville Classic dota scene. Nobody talks why they were kicked or why you kicked them and everybody talks shit in Twitter. This is not a government like problem just tell people the truth so people can cheer for right people not for scumbags. Be transparent please.

  • GemIndies IndiesGem (@GemIndies) reported from Mulyorejo, Jawa Timur

    Playing @OpenAI and it’s very hard to play. The problem is : 1. Not communicating with team 2. They can insta any target item or spell 3. And predicting 80% winning when the game just started. My tip is, don’t play with random. Coz you gonna look dumb #dota2 #openai #games

  • IamDraciel Toni (@IamDraciel) reported

    Pubg mobile doesn't care about service. They will bring new dress and skins. This company doesn't care about customers. I don't think that it will stay long. Look at CS-GO and Dota 2.

  • Panzer_Zand Panzer (@Panzer_Zand) reported

    @Dyrus First world problems. I feel like im stuck in a 'Have all these games but dunno what to play' state of mind. All I've been playing is dota and even that is rarely.

    @Misfits @SwaggerSouls There's a DOTA 2 LAN finals at Lido Cinema hawthorn if you wanna gate crash it.

  • CounterTurner Cesar Alvarez (@CounterTurner) reported

    @7ckngMadDOTA The fundamental problem is that the game is not popular enough. There are too few people playing Dota for high rank matches to both be even and have a reasonable queue time. The only solution that gives both is to basically double the playerbase.

  • jsnxyZ Jason Andrade (@jsnxyZ) reported

    @_colibrisa @PaulChaloner The problem is its a big country and only urban areas, for the most part, have dota players. Collectively, there are many dota players in the country, but not all can afford to go to Mumbai :(

    @danekevincook valve probably saw your videos and doesnt care because they want to fix artifact so players dont say it's complete garbage because valves good games died for a ******* dota card game

    let ppl play what they want. if they want to play dota2, then ok. if they want to play ml, then no problem w that. Stop proving that this one is better and that one is a trash.

    @IceFrog @steam_games @Steam_Support @DOTA2 PLEASE NERF LION I AM BEGGING YOU HE IS BROKEN **** THIS GAME ITS SO ******* TRASH

  • MrNener James 'NeeNaw' Nener (@MrNener) reported

    Dota just isn't as enjoyable as it once was. It's over saturated, with a lack of communication from Valve regarding issues within the game. And the toxic community doesn't help. I feel like I need to be forced to play with friends these days.

  • followNoxville Ben Steenhuisen (@followNoxville) reported

    If we truly want positive change within the Dota 2 ecosystem it, we need to rally together and push for common goals. The problem is that too many actors like the system as it is, and the remaining actors lack the unity to group up.

  • dragondropdota dragondrop (@dragondropdota) reported

    Lots of good points in here that I can only agree with. I am still turning some cogs in my head about some topics, but lemme just throw in a few thoughts right now: I think the issue of sustaining growth of Dota and the role of commentary in that pursuit needs to be

  • OMSKdota Vlados OMSK Ivanov (@OMSKdota) reported

    @JJLiebig @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 well if TO think that way and won't change it i feel sad because that isn't enough for a healthy coverage IMO i feel like lesser(-10/20% prize pools is actually a decent solution to that problem but i guess nobody will do that (at least while valve dictate such a gigantic pools)

  • Georrr_ge George (@Georrr_ge) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @JJLiebig @DOTA2 The problem is: there would be less rants and disappointed comments if they communicated about their plans and reasons behind different decisions, like *that one company with many leagues*

  • Georrr_ge George (@Georrr_ge) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @JJLiebig @DOTA2 And of course, Valve does nothing to help. They're just sitting aside watching the scene cripple with problems. Dota has already lost a lot of mainstream attention, I think this TI won't have more than 1 million western CCU in peak.

  • maximus538 Max Marion (@maximus538) reported

    @andrey_kurenkov @ilyasut @ylecun Okay, I get your point. All the bot did was "beat" a "very hard problem." You can see Dota as an arbitrary landmark, both in terms of skill + problem. I too wish we could better measure "intelligence gained." It's clearly not just loss or win rate

  • maximus538 Max Marion (@maximus538) reported

    @andrey_kurenkov @ilyasut @ylecun If it had failed, we'd be talking about limitations of RL, complexity of other problems vs Dota, what new architecture do we need, etc... but it won, and showed that we haven't hit the limit of RL, nor the "throw compute at it" strategy.

  • XaRiLeY [LITS]Dean Riley▄︻̷̿┻̿═━一 (@XaRiLeY) reported

    I generally love MOBA Games and was determined to try and learn Dota But there's such a high amount of negativity at low level and smurfs its just impossible, But This is a problem with most games and new players are pushed away and the move on, Soon there will be 0 new players

  • ScyCat4 Scy (@ScyCat4) reported

    halfway thru mother 3, 60 % thru a cool rom hack, 40% thru another rom hack. Nah I wanna play more Dota some1 fix my brain pls

  • BikiniBodhi BikiniBodhi 🦀 (@BikiniBodhi) reported

    @SternabR6 @SuzakuR6 @Maxiter94 @notlesto I mean look at most other popular games atm. Overwatch's Balance is going Haywyre. Apex has HUGE cheating issues. Fortnite completely disregards their competetive community. League disregards their entire community. Dota is super hard to get into as a new player.

  • Sunbro98 Tyler Wilson (@Sunbro98) reported

    I play dota again when naga is fixed and the matchmaking isn’t broken UwU

  • HattonGames Hatton Games (@HattonGames) reported

    @STEPAAANEK Cheating isn't really a problem in Dota like it is in CS. Reporting is mainly used for people who ruin games with toxicity or straight up feeding/afk. If you get reported enough you'll be either muted or placed in the low priority queue (with other naughty people).

  • marvels_the The Modern Marvels (@marvels_the) reported

    @OmegamanDota @SharkButler Do you have any concepts in Dota that you don't like. For example, I know he's loved and a mainstay now, but I will never like Rubick. I think it's really broken to be able to take another characters spells and use them even better than they can. I just don't like that concept.

  • ElysiaSakura JB@ShinyColors1stAnniv (@ElysiaSakura) reported

    That said, people do love to mix up both issues as if they're intertwined when in fact they aren't and shouldn't be. It is possible for devs to add accesibility options without sacrificing the core difficulty of games that are supposed to be hard. (Looks at DotA2.)

  • dan_s_becker Dan Becker (@dan_s_becker) reported

    @paul_scharre @OpenAI DOTA isn't a toy problem. @gdb posted this because it's hard Maybe harder than designing good simulators or generalizing from imperfect simulators with lower dimensional state spaces But it's appealing because it's pure optimization, not because it's the best path to real value

  • catherineols Catherine Olsson (@catherineols) reported

    I agree that "we lack simulators for meaningful problems", but I also don't think that that makes Dota "irrelevant". To me it's like basic/translational medical research: All basic / no translational => no actual patients treated All translational / no basic => no innovation

  • stoopidnerd Cryptonerd (@stoopidnerd) reported

    @gdb your vision and your action does not match. what good have you done to humanity other than trying to make OG the best dota team to feel bad. why are you not focusing on more bigger issue that can help save humanity such as food, environmental problem, etc.

  • RahmtinR Rahmtin Rotabi (@RahmtinR) reported

    @gdb @OGesports What you are doing is like having 5 clones of notail that deterministically behaves through the game, e.g. If notail1 is gonna through the stun I'll keep my stun. Fix your baselines and obey the rules of the game and comeback. Don't make the dota scene a place to make money.

  • iamjaysureka Jayy (@iamjaysureka) reported

    @TheSpiritJuice @markimbriaco @believeskt @Slasher Yes but it will be. It works on the basis of trial and error. In testing,if the hero dies because he made a certain move,he will never make that same move in those conditions. Obviously dota being the game it is,there will always be unique situations in match,but one day it will

    @emiel1981 @ZenCupid @DestinLegarie There should be games on both sides, but lets be honest, a lot more games fail to deliver always online experience, than single player, thats the reason why you had to pick some games which are almost a decade old like dota and cs go, I can name a lot of failed games as a service

  • StarPlaysGames Star-Demon (@StarPlaysGames) reported

    I don't think I'll be getting a DOTA compendium this year. Reasons: 1. Last year's was so grubby for money. 2. They haven't really addressed core issues in the last year. 3. I play DOTA less and less as a result. 4. I watch DOTA less and less.

    @DOTA2 Two consecutive matches with intencional feeding. Come on devolepers how many time do you need to fix matchmaking. I know you can code a way to keep tracking of this kind of bad players. Its not only a simple legend 2 that is talking about this pro gamers as well.

    @boneyaard my only regret is that these aren't the whole 1st chapter. We're printing these as test issues for Geequinox on short notice. Chapter 1 ended up a bit bloated and that's mostly my fault. Also I have a bunch of Dota sets I need to wrap up. Not enough time in the day.
