    Yeah it's pretty nuts. It should significantly reduce the frequency of trolling in ranked DOTA 2 now. Seems a lot more serious now, good stuff.

    Question: I happen to have 3 more games of Low priority to complete. Afterwards, I'm hoping the account gets unlocked. Anyone know if I don't get an additional infraction it wont be like duration baned?

    Everybody at their current MMR is more accurate than everybody at 2250 MMR.

    Nope, if I still suck now and don't have party stacks to blame then it's obviously a collusion between Gabe Newell and George Soros to keep me at 900 MMR.

    This is an amusing update. Long overdue, yet- will it bring people back to the game?
    So many people have moved on. Did it take a consistent loss of player base over the last couple months to address this?

    And

    Valvo with my (moms) phone number? Classic.

    I don't think the intent here is to get the players back but to keep the current players base
    Also how come you don't have a phone number? I'd think you're 18+ already

    It has gotten me to be interested in the game again, after years of not playing. sad thing is I have to learn all the new mechanics/map and items since 6.86 and i donĀ“t think i have the time for all that.
    Also my mmr was around 3k, so im going to plumet and ruin a lot of games until i get to a lower rank. An option to recalibrate after so much time of inactivity would be better for everyone.

    I'm just saying that I can pull out 100+ phone numbers out of my ass if I want to have multiple accounts.

    And

    This doesn't scratch the surface of what a bad matchmaker this game uses.

    And

    At what point will the player base drop will they either give up on this game or make some real changes?

    What would you change about the matchmaking? Seems fine to me now.

    @aberjams:
    I don't know if Valve use to restrict phone numbers to exclude usage of prepaid numbers (it's not that hard to do), but if they do that paying for 100 numbers monthly taxes is not that cheap no matter the country.

    You can get non-prepaid numbers for free.
    That's not really what matters though, what matters is that it's more work to make more accounts, especially bot accounts and other shit.
