  • ElonHuskar Gym-going Waifu ;–3 (@ElonHuskar) reported

    @FionnOnFire what about riots culturing NA players specifically to act like little babies🙊 it's not quite overwatch level, but CS:GO and Dota don't have same "anti-competition" problem to the same extent if u wanna "invest" u need to take on shitty "culture", just American dolla' wont halp

  • justinmeader Justin Meader (@justinmeader) reported from Dover, New Hampshire

    @itsthatbillyguy @pettycommajared @IGN Oh my problem is not with Fortnite. Game’s not for me but obviously the impact is huge. But that’s also not what that list used to be about. Like I don’t think DotA or League were ever on it. Regardless, I was talking about the text mismatch.

  • gamecriticbot gamecriticbot (@gamecriticbot) reported

    Dota 2 isn't very good because the funding was so broken.

  • _watsu Walt (@_watsu) reported

    @Succinct_Punchy I think the main issue is that most F2P games (99% of mobile ones) don't have economics tampering with them, they're made with economics in mind first like FGO and such Then there's games that are games first and cashcows later, like Dota 2

  • afiqdulmi LEN (@afiqdulmi) reported

    @DOTA2 hi, does anyone know how to fix this bug , the one that i marked within the box are supposed to be the timer or number of games needeed to be played. This bug shows some weird symbol , unreadable , please help

  • Rjabesamis2 Rj abesamis (@Rjabesamis2) reported

    When I'm sad, I play dota. Then I realized, Teammates is worse than my problems

  • swordstress_ Rain (@swordstress_) reported

    @solelybrbdoo @Zane_willows001 @RiotAzael In high mmr dota (6k+) we would add meepo/arc warden/earth spirit spammers back in the old days and tag them in the steam friends list as "meepo/arc abuser" and target ban them accordingly if we get to see the opposing team during champ select this wouldn't be a problem

  • UmerShiekh Obama Bin Laden (@UmerShiekh) reported

    To do list 1- Stalk crush 2- Go into detailed search for Netflix login. 3- Play dota 2. 4- Follow more accounts 5- Watch news 6- Take out warm clothes 7- Kill me boss in my mind 8- Feel sad and sleep

  • Alesandra_mw Michelle Wang (@Alesandra_mw) reported

    @DOTA2 One of the biggest issues right now is the MMR gain and loss. The system is still matching divine and immortals with high disparity almost up to 2k and it feels so punishing to lose 30+ per game when we are powerless to who the system matches you with.

  • riningear Vic-GORE-ia Rose 💀🔪😱 (@riningear) reported

    @FionnOnFire ehhhh we have the same issue in dota, man

  • old_dodger Dodger (@old_dodger) reported

    @TheWeekendSlice I like to watch games with a good story or at least a story 😉. I'm not interested in games like Dota or Fortnite etc. A point and click game like Broken Sword or similar would be nice or something like or similar to the Silent Hill games.

  • erncrdvaa 𝓭𝓸𝔂𝓲𝓮𝓴𝔃 🧡 (@erncrdvaa) reported

    i just play dota to fix my ruined heart😖

  • accureye accureye (@accureye) reported

    @PlayApex needs to really fix the game honestly here is my opinion of the game its basically dead without some balances and something to make the game more interesting it's just Titanfall on a battle royal scale with much toxicity like #dota2

  • oneesportsgg ONE Esports 👑#ONEDota2 (@oneesportsgg) reported

    .@virtuspro will not be competing at Dota Summit 11, citing pressure and visa issues as the main reasons 😕 #ONEDota2 #oneesportsgg #dota2 #gogovp #vp #virtuspro #dpc2020

  • YogoPlaysMC YogoPlayz (@YogoPlaysMC) reported

    @DOTA2 I want a fix for my hard support anti-mage. It has caused me too much pain and suffering.

  • HooverTV Hoover (@HooverTV) reported from Maryville, Missouri

    @HawkCSGO_ @CSGO Valve employees can work on any game they want, someone finally wanted to make csgo cool again rather than putting all the money into dota. TrustFactor and prime are broken and filled with more hackers than ever. I think your blinded by 'this being the only cs you've played'

  • im_jedmedrano perfectly_adequate (@im_jedmedrano) reported

    @DOTA2 please fix the normal matches in SEA SERVER/JAPAN. I've been playing with immortal rank players in a normal match few months ago and now, I've been playing with some bad teammates with poor communication/toxic, bad gameplay and throwers. GIVE LOVE TO NORMAL MATCH PUB PLAYERS! 😞

  • CptDrake97 Ciri guild master of the Semi Shiny Raiders (@CptDrake97) reported

    @CarnlvaIs It has been modernized a lot, old Dota2 was slow. But Leuage suffers from the problem of if you fail once in the early game you have no way of comming back. Dota 2 has probaly the best comeback mechanics out of all the mobas

  • AlexStockwell Alex (@AlexStockwell) reported

    @DOTA2 Why fix it, I love 40 minute queues, I get so much done #dota2

  • BALLSTICKMAN 2DANK2SPANK (@BALLSTICKMAN) reported

    @redditdota2 Implying people play him without cosmetics. The real issue with dota is not being able to recycle anymore. All my friends and I have like 2000 useless sets. come on volvo.

  • AuzaieIrfan EPUNK (@AuzaieIrfan) reported

    @themeorrr @fdzlhmnrh @FikhrulH Dota siang. Problem solved!!

  • LloydRealAcct Lloyd Jake Refuerzo (@LloydRealAcct) reported

    @DOTA2 I picked safe lane to calibrate It took me 16 minutes this shit gettin out of hand bring back the party and solo MMR back. And please fix SEA server. 😭

  • Popa2caps Bad feedback (@Popa2caps) reported

    @Xbox Microsoft should purchase Valve Corporation so Xbox can get DOTA 2. Xbox is missing some of the most played games that are free on PC. It would also spike mixer service as well.

  • raf1nh0 Dinho (@raf1nh0) reported

    @DOTA2 FIX THE ******* STUPID REPORTING ALGORITHM U CUCKS

  • Dazzdingoo_ SteboK (@Dazzdingoo_) reported

    @DOTA2 i was thinking about the same thing to kinda fix the matchmaking. still needs more but at least its in the right direction

  • GoogleForBirds Grabbler (@GoogleForBirds) reported

  • ardhagaruda Anak Adidas (@ardhagaruda) reported

    Looks like I have a problem with ranked matchmaking times @DOTA2 this game gonna be more harder.

  • Maddin19912 Martin Beyer (@Maddin19912) reported

    @DOTA2 My friend and I are searching for over 16 minutes now... (2x 8+ minutes). What the hell.... the update didnt solve the problem!

  • JokicKyle Kyle Jokic (@JokicKyle) reported

    The Overwatch Malaysia Team issue doesn't signify that Malaysia esports is terrible. I think Malaysia is doing quite well in games like: DOTA 2 CSGO PUBG Mobile Mobile Legends Esports fans, players, and comapnies in those communities are showing a lot of enthusiasm and growth.

  • _bmfq bima (@_bmfq) reported

    feels like #Dota2 is not enjoyable anymore at this point. long time que for cores even its 3k game, and less than 5s for supporting some stupid ass cores. hope u can fix this, @IceFrog

  • 1stCLord Andrew Haining ☭☸️☮️ (@1stCLord) reported

    I'm still forming my thoughts on Battle Passes, I always liked it in dota, it felt like you got your money's worth. I think, conceptually it's the fairest way to operate a service style game. As long as the monetisation stays largely divorced from the game design, I'm ok with it.

  • doteplayers Agriculture (@doteplayers) reported

    @DOTA2 Why is every single match having a sudden lag and stop dance gameplay. Wtf

  • saveriothomas earthbound🌺 (@saveriothomas) reported

    Stole the “idea” for league from dota Stole the “idea” for a card game from hearthstone Stole the “idea” for team tactics from auto chess And now stole the “idea” for an fps from overwatch. Riot has no issue blatantly copying the heads of their field bc a lack of creativity.

  • smoshdennis 広瀬 すず (@smoshdennis) reported

    @DOTA2 dota is a shit game. fix ur goddamn server and players. 20 mins finding a match is not a game.

  • LiquipediaDota Liquipedia Dota 2 (@LiquipediaDota) reported

    Despite the good run during the qualifiers @virtuspro decide not to attend the DOTA Summit 11 Minor due too personal reasons as well as visa issues.

  • BeyondTheSummit Beyond the Summit (@BeyondTheSummit) reported

    Unfortunately, three-time Dota Summit winners @virtuspro will not be attending the Dota Summit 11 in November due to issues securing visas on time. We are working with Team jfshfh178 to see if it's possible to secure them visas on time for our DPC Minor as VP's replacement.

  • Falls_November November_Falls (@Falls_November) reported

    @RickyBotty Sweet! I am currently rocking Witcher3 / Dota, though I need to finish working on the bots by Sept. Currently some slight issues have popped up, for example some share commands, I.E. !quote ... xD So, I am working hard to get it down to just one bot. It... is a grind xD

  • FaultyWirestv FaultyWires (@FaultyWirestv) reported

    @chilblane @Balkarzar I think my main problem with Underlords is that it looks so much like Dota AutoChess but it's not as good. It's like getting some McDonalds fries but they taste like Burger King fries.

  • JuLsTeodosio Salazar~ 🐍 (@JuLsTeodosio) reported

    @DOTA2 Hello good evening please check this out. My whole team was lagging and my enemies too. Yet this invoker casts his combos perfectly. I don't know if it's just connection but somethings not right. 5071986758

  • SlightSaltSauce SlightlySaltySause (@SlightSaltSauce) reported

    @TobiWanDOTA @DOTA2 You can do things at your desk while waiting. If it is a trust of others issue I completely understand because if your safelane loses in pubs they normally don’t know how to try hard farm.

  • Glennehhhh Glenn (@Glennehhhh) reported

    League just announced about 10 new cool and exciting things while Dota just announced a matchmaking update that did almost nothing to fix the existing system, maybe it’s time to switch games

  • vforvalerian kelly (edith) 🌿 (@vforvalerian) reported

    @goonsquadjavi MALD IS THE ******* WORST i’m actually a broken person and i can’t even play dota it’s beyond repair

  • Classified_Dota ThatsClassified (@Classified_Dota) reported

    So apparently od + oracle is actually broken, if you false promise someone, and right before they come out of the false promise, imprison them, they take 0 dmg. They also take 0 heal, but that still is insanely powerful. #dota2

  • FMokho Mokhtar Fleifel (Mokho) (@FMokho) reported

    @Windowpainzzz1 @GetDonutss @SUNSfanTV CS has a lot of servers issues, lacks maintenance and updates. Dota has been in a bad place with mm for quite a while now, unless they fix it in the upcoming patch.

  • Brunoxian Brunotwm_ (@Brunoxian) reported

    @DOTA2 calibrate conduct please. I have 5k cuz Network issues (left a game). Now i get matchd with toxic players and 40mins Q.

  • WhizzCS Sascha Kerkmann (@WhizzCS) reported

    @Marten_Ja @kebbe90 @shoxCSGO @CSGO Players in other esports (Dota, League, Rainbow Six etc.) have to adapt all the ******* time.. but as soon as csgo meta changes a little everyone wants old cs back, what a joke. Everyone agrees the sg is broken, but pros job should include adapting to metas instead of complaning

  • Derk50949620 Derk (@Derk50949620) reported

    @DOTA2 I have spent over 2 hours of the last 2 days in queue. I already beat myself up for playing DoTA2 when I should be doing other more important things. You guys gotta fix this now or you'll lose a lot of players.

  • BelonyDotA Yegor Dovgiy (@BelonyDotA) reported

    Please fix Deafening Blast (Invoker Q-W-E spell) that shouldn't be dispelled by the BKB. It's broken. @DOTA2 @IceFrog

  • Dayzen11 Dayzen (@Dayzen11) reported

    3/2 @DOTA2 Could you please fix. I'm wasting the autumn holiday. (for the record, I spent more time in que than the game itself on yesterday) (3/2 joke is intentional)
