Valve testing new matchmaking system for DotA 2

Responding to a question posed on Twitter, Valve said it’s testing “some social things” and “complete new matchmaking system” for its upcoming sequel to DotA, the former Warcraft 3 custom map.

The story is too old to be commented.

come on and release this already so we can get down to episode 3 business.

And Counter-Strike 2 business!

So Valve is working on...
- DotA 2
- Half-Life 3/Episode Three?
- New IP from Turtle Rock Studios
- Counter-Strike 2?

i just want a reskinned counter strike 2 i want nothing changed just the original game with bonus maps in modern graphics if they change the gameplay for casual players i give up on CS

This will be Valve's new egg. They will sit on it and hatch it to millions of customers that will probably leave Episode 3 "business" way, way out of schedule.

Sorry to say, but DotA has a playerbase as big as World of Warcraft spanding, surely it's a Free to Play model with cracked WC3 & several platforms like Garena, DotAPLAY etc. but there are so many players.

I'm actually really excited for DotA 2 now that I've gotten into League of Legends. I wasn't really a strategy-based player until I took the leap forward and actually researched about how to do well in LoL, and now I'm having the most fun I have had in gaming recently. It's much more rewarding than any shooter, because you know you're outsmarting the enemy rather than having better reflexes than them. My only concern is that it will split the player base of LoL, something I hate to see happen to any game I play.

dota pwns half life

dota2 will continue this tradition, half life is a great 12-20 hour ride, after that, over

dota 100's of hours, mad competition, mad strategy,

half life 2 awesome story, mediocre gunplay

dota, intense, edge of your seat sport like enviroment

i admit dota is not for everyone, just like starcraft 2, most people cannot hang with games that regquire actual skill, they wann play COD4, 5, 6, 7 , 8, 9

and rank up for getting one kill and dying 3 times

fps should take away XP every time you die!

id have to agree with you. i dont give a f*** about half life 3. once dota 2 comes out, i will be playing that non stop. dota is by far the most fun multiplayer game i have ever played. it is my fav multiplayer game. and as far as im concerned once dota 2 releases, i wont even give a crap about half life or most games excluding a few. (dark souls, uncharted)
