I just started playing Dota 2, and I want to know why I can't turn off limited hero mode. Unchecking the Limited Heroes checkbox disables the Save Settings button so apparently I'm not allowed.

I am playing Normal matches, not Ranked matches, because my profile is not yet level 13. Can you not play with all heroes in Normal matches?

  • Isn't it part of the tutorial you have to complete? What level are you? – TZHX Jul 26 '14 at 7:59
  • I'm level 5, and I haven't completed the tutorial. I'll try that. – jcarpenter2 Jul 26 '14 at 9:14
  • Wow, there is a lot of training. – jcarpenter2 Jul 26 '14 at 10:59

    No training required. I had unchecked Limited Hero mode, but never checked another checkbox. They should be radio buttons instead of checkboxes. – jcarpenter2 Jul 26 '14 at 21:40

    @jcarpenter radiobuttons imply that only 1 can be selected at any given time. They should make a popup instead like "at least 1 mode must be selected" – Wandang Jul 27 '14 at 14:03

My problem was that I never selected All Pick.

I didn't realize you had to select All Pick; I thought All Pick was just the default, and Limited Heroes etc. were all modifiers you could apply.

Valve should change some of the checkboxes to radio buttons, or add a validation message or something.

    If you'd like to suggest that, register at "dev.dota2.com". that is the official valve development forum where user feedback will be read and considered. – Fredchen777 Aug 7 '14 at 10:21

    this answer could use some work. You should state where you can select all pick from. Otherwise people will look in options not under the green find match button where it is actually located (in game modes). – Xitcod13 May 9 '15 at 23:04
