    I have learned that in the current battle pass, if you have a 5 stack, you can earn 1000 mmr by winning 3 matches against "higher skilled opponents."

    Cool stuff...

    It seems boosting accounts is some srs bsnss where you're playing

    On a side note I got like 2 or 3 weeks of mostly wins in my ranked games and I'm not even Crusader yet. But this is odd. I started at Guardian 1 iirc and after a somewhat long period of struggle, I got 2 stars up out of a sudden (and the match I played when I got my promotion wasn't really awesome from my part either).

    For now, I should just keep winning, because what the hell else should I do. At least I'm positively raising my MMR now, not just my medal.

    I wouldn't want to get boosted anyway. I've always wanted to earn my respect in the dota community, but it's never gonna happen haha .

    Anyway...one last thing:

    :horse:

    Yeah, DotA does things to people... Hence I haven't played in 2 years. Unless Volvo decides to drastically change things you're better off playing other games.

    You might need to get your head checked. Games don't "do" anything to anyone, it's all up to you as a person.

    No need to get anything checked, there's plenty of more challenging games out there that do not cause its userbase to fall out against eachother. DotA2 has pioneered griefing to a level thought unimaginable only a decade ago.

    Well that's better, I should think. I still wouldn't attribute poor life decisions to "Dota does things to people" but as long as you can recognize there are other games out there, or better ways to spend your time, it doesn't really matter I guess.

    @GoLD-ReaVeR:
    I don't think that DotA is the reason those players are toxic, I think that those guys are toxic and just happens to play DotA as well.

    A lot of games suffer from toxic communities.

    To my observation the only game which had very little toxic players involved were RTS games like StarCraft franchise and that was before they washed down the difficulty of the game in SC2 where plenty of casual gamers flood the servers and toxicity while still not as much as in other games is much more easily found.

    Also classic starcraft is 1v1 so the worst you can do is rage at yourself.

    I used to play a lot of SCBW but I found SC2 to be really lacking.

    Sure, I've seen him. But it's not like him raging affects anyone's game except his own.

    It does affected me multiple times.

    I was laughing out loud when he rage-quit one game when he was winning hard, because he though he was losing it - during a tournament mind you.

    The game in question is here

    DotA is part of a handful of games where truly toxic people get to do whatever they want and are protected by the system.
    Many more don't. There's plenty of teamgames where people work together without issue. Heck, Guild Wars 2 manages to get 100 players to work together to do events yet DotA2 can't even manage to have 5 cooperate with eachother.
    Any 1v1 game and like I said plenty of teamgames have far less toxic communities than this one. And the reason for those teamgames to have less toxic communities is simply because toxic players are either kicked or avoided.
