Matchmaking allowed me to lose 9 times in a row or something and I just started recently. Kept getting put against a group of kids that play too much and get stomped. I'm most likely not buying this and going back to dota. I lose too often for a game that won't let me choose what game I want to go in. I'll buy the game one day with it has many more fixes maybe. Atleast dota has a WC3 engine to support it.
This game is free to play, so you don't have to pay until you feel ready to.
You can create a practice game with friends and bots to get used to heroes and play the games you want. 10 friends = 1 good game.
