10 Things Players Hate About Dota 2

7. People who try to report others for being "newb"

Because the Dota 2 community has historically been filled with jerks and meanies, Valve implemented a system where players can be reported for their bad behavior. If enough people speak up and report such a player, the jerk is punished accordingly. However, there are people out there who feel that being a ”newb” warrants  a report of some kind. This is false.

Being a newb is not a reportable offense, no matter how infuriating a person’s play is. Instead of trying to get someone reported, how about earning some teaching points? Talk to the person who is struggling. Guide them. Show them the way. Nothing will be gained out of getting the person reported and if anything, you should be the one being reported, not the newb.
