    Lol, I won mid with a Pudge last time I was against an OD. He is not even close to be the worst mid to be up against.

    Can you show me the source of your claim?

    Are you implying TA has a chance against OD?

    dunno.
    In my opinion, pudge is one of the softest mids vs OD.

    Played a game the other day (incredibly low MMR) with a guy who picked Drow within a second of the menu coming up, then only got Frost Arrows, stat boosts, and ultimate. The entire game.

    More like OD would be bad at standing behind creeps. Your only real shot at 'winning' against OD as Pudge is to lose spectacularly for 5 minutes and then kill him a few times during the first night. Problem is, at that point OD probably has some items and is 1-2 levels above you and with a high probability can just banish you and walk away or just shit on you and thank you for the initiation. I don't really like doing the whole 'he was probably a bit bad' rain on your parade thing, but that's all I can really think of. Even in top MMR games you see OD players use awful skillbuilds and lose their mid lanes even without getting ganked, but when you know what you're doing OD mid becomes a very effortless thing to pull off.

    There really are very few heroes who can be expected to have a shot at beating OD in a 'fair' 1v1 mid, Nyx being the only one of melee heroes and even his chances aren't too high.

    Did I miss something or is there no ladder or leaderboard to progress through? I imagined this game having something like bronze league and such thing. Cant find anything about it though. Anyone?

    The only visible ranking system is for team-matchmaking.

    Some people would like to see something like the system implemented in LoL: http://leagueoflegends.wikia.com/wiki/League_system

    On the other hand others (and I tend to agree) have the opinion that a solo ladder for a strictly team-based game make no sense. There is a hidden system that attributes a rating to players to try to create balanced games, but I don't think there is any info available about how does it really work (if it works at all ).

    nah once you implement a ladder in non-team games those games become ''serious businezz'',and that's when the false reports about ''ruining games'' go rampant.
    people will get reported for chosing weak heroes,being less good at the game and whatnot more then ever

  18. #10038
    If you are concerned about rating systems, there is a plethora of inhouse leagues and ladder sites you can use. Ixdl open is one of the bigger ones, but I have found more awful players there compared to regular matchmaking. Plus you will not get any hats.

    So it has come to this.

    I just got flamed FOTM for playing Crystal Maiden.

    Why don't you pick a hero that takes skill to use instead, like Storm Spirit?
