I'm sure most of you have already seen the blog post today, as it is in game on the Today section and on the DoTA 2 site. Here's a link for those of you who haven't seen it. http://blog.dota2.com/
Basically, the developers have finally gone into detail about how matchmaking works and how Ranked Matchmaking will work in the future. They promise in the blog post that Ranked Matches are coming in the next major update. How long that will take, who knows?
Personally, I'm pumped. I'm not really into travelling to play with a team and stuff but it would be cool to get some friends together and get ranked. What do you guys think? Are you excited? And could this new ranking system slingshot competitive DoTA 2 forward as it brings in more serious, competitive gamers and allows invite-only tournaments to see which teams are best?
