I have played about 17 matches which fits my time at 17 hours. Only played in teams with 1 or 3 friend and found the Dota community to be pretty bad....then i played on my own.
So despite the penalties nearly every game has people disconnect for a variety of reasons which annoys me even if its the enemy.
Some people acess from the characters people pick if they will win which leads me to my first hatred.
Hero bullying. I get bullied by not only my team also the enemy team for the Hero I picked and this is befor anything goes down.
I pick Venomancer and I am jumped upon with snide remarks. Yes he is a terrible character on his own, he is a support hero. Yet I find people dont want support or team work, they want everybody to be self sufficiant individuals and win like that.
I seem to miss the part were are a team. I can get 20 plus kills or more likely 20 plus assists with venomancer, later in the game I can almost tank none tanks. I am not a glory seeker looking for multi kills I just want to help my team. Why is that bad?
I have had 2 horrific matches on my own. 1 with a dude that was an honest screw up and then Dced. Then a troll on my team feeding,pinging and useing his steam name to insult the team.
So you would think they are the bad guys...no...its me. Its me the dude that chose an uncommonly used character that helps the other kill guys easier to super easy.
I didnt even get a chance to prove myself he games were ruined within moments due other players, these were not game yet both teams decide to dump on me.
Is this normal? or does everyone else choose the same community voted 10 hero's and never stray?
