Mute System thoughts?
First off im going to be compeltely honest with the fact that I do talk trash to people when they talk trash to me, usually I ignore them after 1 comment or so though. I've gotten muted many times but I must admit the new system is incredibly atrocious. They definitely overdo it with the mutes. 1 person muted on a team can simply cause the downfall and ruin the fun of a game, which has happened many times in the last couple of weeks due to severe lack of communications, and the Ping reduction. I also beleive that after a period of mutes that the system becomes unreasonably bias towards a target. I finally got off of my 1 week mute and 3 games later I was muted again. These games I did not have any disruptive behavior nor was I talking any high form of trash talk. I Got muted simply for saying I have to farm and carry this game because our safe lane 1 was not capable at the time. At the end of the game one of my teamates said he reported me simply for being a "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥" about Anti-Mages lack of farm. I was muted immediatly after the game.
As I said earlier I have lost countless games simply to lack of communications over the course of the week. Some people do not read the chat for who knows what reason, yet respond to pings. The simple ping lock can therefore result in a successful gank against your teamates due to lack of awareness. With the new system I at least think the ping lock should be addressed and the bias of the system. As I said I did nothing disruptive yet 3 games after my mute I am muted for another week which is insane. I am not going to be playing dota because the mute reduces the enjoyment of the game immensly. I can't even talk in a trade channel to start gaining more items.

People should stop making threads about mute.

Im asking about opinions, you should get muted yourself.

The mute system is new , it takes time for them to go fixing and improving it.

Still the system is good , people offend others , people get their mouth shut for a week.

Moon, the system is garbage if they report your for no reason and it gets you muted.

That usually happens AFTER you already had been muted at least once.

Since the system does not reset your "max reports" after you got muted. It is like the system simple thinks you are being offensive again since you were once , and not that someone reported you for a random reason.

The mute idea is GREAT. What you're talking about is the CHAT BAN feature. Please know the DIFFERENCE between the mute feature and the chat ban feature. I would have to say, the chat ban feature is a total down fall waste. It totally defeats the purpose of the MUTE feature. The CHAT BAN feature has an overall AFFECT on your game play, allowing them to have a high % of losing due to no communication. Although you are NOT completely muted, you still are able to ping and use the basic chat commands, they're not very specific and leaves you in the grey area. MUTE feature is a great idea but I would have to disagree with the CHAT BAN feature. If the chat ban is implemented, there is no need for the mute feature.

I was talking about BOTH systems, Yen. If you get muted in the game you are muted in chat as well. The basic commands leave much to be asked for. and you can't ping at all really. You get like 3 pings within a 5 minute period (exageration) I just recently played a game where my entire team was muted. You can believe we were ganked a ton, but we still managed to win because the other team stunk.

and inr egards to your comment moons, I said that it does hold bias towards a person after they have been muted once. I was reproted for the hell of it and it got me another week long mute. It's not like I don't get people mtued as well, I have over 8 reports stocked up. I get multiple thank yous upon login, but I think they should definitely change something.
Yooshi Jun 23, 2013 @ 12:25pm 
You can even view the game that I got reported on. The kid who reported me did it simply because i was "mean" by telling my Anti Mage "im farming and going to carry because you cannot, you have no farm" no abusive language AT ALL
