I have never had a positive experience in solo matchmaking, be it ranked or unranked. If it wasn't for the guild I would never have gotten as deep in this game as I have. Added you on steam, feel free to invite me any time you see me online.
@mcfart: You clearly have never tried to watch cricket, or a bunch of other sports. Sure you can summarize them in one sentence, but that's also possible with Dota: "Kill the enemy base". Both physical sports and eSports require a a lot of understanding, and its kinda unfair to just call eSports fake because their ruleset is deeper than that of other sports.
Yeah, I had really hoped for an upgrade discount after buying the game for $60 and the season pass for $20. I dont really feel like paying another $50 for the game, despite that I want it so much, soooo much... Im propably gonna get it anyway.
