    @yleebo4:
    Server, Rating, Behavior Score, approximate time (and time zone).

    Without that 'small' info is like me writing in the internet about intercourse with somebody's mother, may look interesting but hardly something people would take seriously.

    By the way do you wanna hear what I did yesterday with your mother ?

    For me it depends on the server. If I choose Russian servers I never find a game. I once queued for 20 minutes before I cancled. I even had russian selected as my default language. On EUW on the other hand I find a game right away.

    The predictable byproduct of a dwindling playerbase.

    It's not just you, pal. Now I also must search in 3 servers when 1 or 2 years ago I was content with searching for games only within my local server.

    Yeah it's a sign you need to do something else while you queue for DotA and not rely purely on the game for satisfaction. I'm a fan of doing planks or researching online.

    @yleebo4:
    Can you tell me why I queue in the same servers (without the Russian one), and have a search time of - sometimes less then a minute - up to 2 minutes and the most time I wait is when I'm with a party and still never search for more than 4 minutes ?

    stop spewing BS. sometimes i find matches within 20 seconds and i only search 1 server. dwindlig playerbase means jack if theres still over half a million players hourly. just stop ur god damn 'gem ded' meme, ur like a broken record its annoying as fuck

    @InThoX:
    Sorry, but you are even wrong.
    You are in the top 0.15% of the player population, so statistically speaking you are finding matches few times slower then the rest.

    When the people (those complain in this forum) are usually around the average, so their matchmaking is easily one of the easiest one - they fail to recognize that their behavior and thus behavior score is what's making it all unpleasant.

    P.S.:
    The forum should be moderated so 'dead game' threads and posts should be cleared, a joke is something you use few times, not every single post/thread should be about it - and even worse if they are not joking.

    maybe, but no one here is talking about playing bots. We're talking about playing regular games against other people. you don't need to search for bots, they are auto generated, that's why you take 20 seconds to find a fucking vs bot game.

    Now stop babbling your bullshit about "half a million players daily" because the true number is MUCH LOWER than that for each server.

    dying game is dying, the rumors are true

    I don't know guys, but ZaW has around 3,100-3,200 solo rating.
    So whoever play in similar rating or below that should be facing some serious problems or should not be into PC games at all.
