Random Draft Single Draft Public matchmaking includes Casual matches, Ranked matches, and Co-op Bot matches; however Team matches are tracked separately Interaction with Abandon[ edit ] In case of Early abandonment by either an ally or enemy, wins and losses will not be recorded. Wins and losses under Late Abandonment will be recorded regardless of how many players are left in game. An Abandon occurs when a player:
This is a short playdota article I wrote to explain matchmaking systems. If anyone would like to correct any of my points, feel free to do so.
Which is why such an algorithm would actually be flawed. Matchmaking algorithms are based on probabilities. On average, you out perform players below your current skill level, and perform worse than those above.
Though you often will win against greater players and lose against worse players, as this is only an estimate of what "should" happen. If you win against someone you should win against, your rating stays around the same, but if you beat someone above you, your rating will increase.
The opposite is true if you lose. The difference the loss or win makes is actually calculated by the difference between your skill levels. This variable tends to ease out and eventually stop increasing the magnitude of each change when you have lots of matches played. These matchmaking algorithms also tend to take how often you swerve away from your average probability of winning as a factor of how much your matchmaking score will change, to avoid huge jumps for players who have lots of wins against better players and lots of losses against players who are worse.
If we are talking about what determines your performance, it generally will be just how much you have won vs lost, and in a team game it will likely sum up the two teams player scores to determines the probability of who should win, and what impact that will have. Some players like to party with friends of much lower level than they are.
So high level players with new accounts will quickly leave the low level matchmaking pool. This is the only scenario where kills and deaths have any effect on your matchmaking rank.
Finding a Match When you enter matchmaking, you enter a localized pool of eligible players to join a game. What pool you are in is determined by the region you selected for example, US East, Europe West, etc If you selected multiple regions, you are in every pool you selected.
This loop repeats until it finds ten suitable players, and has balanced the teams between those ten suitable players found. Once you are in a match, you leave your pool s and connect to the game server.
Specific to Dota 2, the larger your party size going into a match, the lower the range of skill between you and your opponents it will tolerate.
So you will wait a little longer for what will be likely be a better quality match. So you are more likely to find a good match if you have a ranking with a lot of players, which is aroundat the time when the most players are on, and in the highest traffic region.
So unfortunately, this means that in the reverse scenario, if you are near the highest or lowest ranking possible, where there are fewer players, you play around am, and if you live in a region with the least players, you will have matches of lower quality, and longer wait times.
This is why some players decide to play in other regions than their own, because they want to avoid the tremendous wait times they get in their region.
Some regions also have terrible internet, so they will get the same ping nearby as they would in another region anyway. Potential Inaccuracies There is only one issue I have gathered that has strong evidence for it, to following is a direction quote from the playdota member xpforever.

This is a problem with how rating systems work in general. Suppose we have one big happy dota region. In fact, if we took a sample of players, gave them their own Dota 2 region, and had them play lots of matches against each other but never against people outside of this regionthen the MMR curve would look more or less like that, with the median being or whatever Valve uses.
Now, what happens when we add multiple regions? There are highly skilled Russian players, and there are low-skilled US players, but just assume that the average skill level of the Russian region will be lower.
If the regions were completely separate region-lockedwe would end up with a distribution that looks like this note that this is highly exaggerated: And, as shown with the first graph, if there was significantly more cross-region play, it would fix the matchmaking since it would push everyone towards their true MMR relative to the world rather than just their region.
This means that in order to get evenly-skilled cross-region matches, you need to have world-relative MMR. Does Valve know about this? Yes, they acknowledged it as a problem on the dev forums a while back. So our matchmaking ranking is not a true world relative ranking, which may cause slight inaccuracies for cross-region games.I'm looking for people to destroy my friend in Dota 2!
