Dota 2 Matchmaking Changes: Return of Non-Role Queue

Valve have released an update for Dota 2, which is focused on adjusting the matchmaking system. The update reintroduces the non-role queue, removes the fast/long queue system, as well as adds a fixed amount of MMR received/lost after a match.

From now on there are two options for ranked play – Ranked Classic, where you queue without selecting a role, and Ranked Roles which utilizes a Role Queue games system:

  • To play a specific role, you need to spend Role Queue games
  • To earn Role Queue games, you need to select all five roles
  • You will not spend Role Queue games if you select both High Demand Roles – full support and semi-support

Besides that, the amount of MMR received/lost after a game is now fixed. When playing solo, you will now receive or lose is 30, while group matches will affect your MMR by 20.

Valve introduced role-based matchmaking for everyone in August 2018, previously it was available for Dota Plus subscribers only. Since then the developers have been actively experimenting with the matchmaking system.
