So it's almost same amount of people for and against. 1824 vs 1722 This shows that at least 40% of the community is unhappy with current mute system. Therefore we can conclude that community is not happy with the mute system.

Current system needs more built-in commands, especially "re" for "hero returned", having equivalents of "gl hf" and "gg" would also be welcome.

I receive mute bans from time to time for calling out teammates who are ruining the game for all of their teammates because of careless and selfish decisions. examples are:

- afk farming and refusing to group and push against a lineup who undoubtedly has a superior lategame.

- having retarded item builds (only carry has items like MoM and SnY and keeps dying to stuns because no bkb, or building only carry items as the only support)

- constantly getting to 1v5 2v5 or 3v5 fights that are far across the river on enemy territory

There may be many muted players like myself out there who want to work as a team and want to win, and are muted because they get upset at other players who do not want to work as a team, and end up being reported for flaming ignorant/inexperienced players for terrible decisions.

    "and end up being reported for flaming ignorant/inexperienced players for terrible decisions."

    And thats why your banned, doesnt matter if someone is good or bad you should not be flaming them. Give them constructive criticism so they get better at the game instead of saying god damn blue you suck. This is the com ban system working as intended right here.

      sure it's working as valve intends it. i didn't say that i didn't deserve the mute or anything. i am commenting on the poll that I am not happy with the current mute system, because I get muted for calling out teammates that are auto-losing games (doing selfish and reckless behaviors that ruin the game for their 4 other teammates).

      and no i don't just go god damn blue you suck. I actually explain to them why they are throwing and what they need to do, and they get offended by truth and logic.

      to me, these behaviors that auto-lose games are worse than flaming. compare wasting 4 other players' 45 minutes of time to "you hurt my feelings :("

    You are telling us what you said not how you said it. I frequently do all the things you just said and have never been muted. In my experience players like you who have been "wrongly" muted don't realize that they are actually being far to rude. If you called my item build "retarded" then tried to tell me what to do guess what? I'd tell you to mind your business and mute you if you kept on. The fact that you think retarded is even acceptable to use as a negative descriptor proves my point. That kinda language has no place among civilized people let alone in a video game because YOU think people are bad. Guess what? You're not a pro and you're probably not even out of the lowest bracket (because few people are). There are a lot of people who know a lot more about DotA than you so stop assuming you know so much and can say whatever you want in a game of DotA because of it. People are still people and you have to treat them as such.

      Guess what? Anyone with half of a brain is out of the lowest bracket. What makes you think only "few people are" out of the Normal bracket? Anyone can check their bracket by going into the watch tab of their recent games and filtering by skill level.

      No I am not a pro but it doesn't take a pro to know that slark will not out carry phantom lancer, that MoM+no bkb is suicide against a team with numerous magical disables, and that repeatedly 3v5ing the other team will throw the game. it's common game sense.

      to me, these reckless behaviors that auto-lose games are worse than flaming, as it results in a straight up waste of 45 minutes of all their teammates' time

I am so surprised that so many people from this are saying the mute system is good. I havent played in a few weeks, maybe its been improved, but as of MAY the system was broken and I was getting muted constantly for no reason. "Please dont build dps on venge, you need to play support" is all I said one game, got raged at and the guys friends all started flaming me. I muted them and just continuted to play, only to be flamed in all chat by the 4 scrubs. and got muted. not saying a single word to all chat or anyone.

    Ya that is simply not true valve has said it does not look at individual reports but at patterns of reports. You cannot get com banned from a single game.

    How do you know the mute came from that game?

I think the system is great. A lot of people claim to be unfairly muted, but I think you'll find they're just not aware of how much they have found themselves raging. Valve has been pretty open about the system, outright telling us you can't getreported by a five stack and end up with a mute. Obviously it could be improved, but over all I'm happy with it.

I think it needs some tweaks, LoL's mute system is pretty good - you do have a limited number of normal chat messages per game (that increase if the game goes lionger), and instead of restricting communication for a certain amount of time, it gets restricted for a certain amount of games (to prevent smurfing)

Unfortunately people doesn't seem to mind that the system allows innocents to be unfairly reported and muted by the mute system as long most of the people being punished really deserve it. That's is quite a flaw in this system and also in the minds of people that thinks with that logic.

Also, it's stupid how we can't unmute a muted friend solely on our own client (no one else would hear him) so we can actually communicate through the game.

I haven't noticed it at all.
