Why are unranked games so toxic and frustrating?

Explore DOTA 2's heroes and find detailed hero information such as skills, talents, stats, and more

I'm an Archon player in the SEA server and almost only exclusively played ranked role queue. Recently I created a new account and had been playing some unranked games on the that account. I find that the environment in unranked is very toxic and frustrating. Besides having to contest last hits with your own teammate, I often meet players that just start throwing out words like 'dog', 'noob', 'tang ina mo' just because they killed a hero. I had never encountered such behavior in my ranked games.

I often read reddit posts that say unranked is more fun and less stressful than ranked. However, from my games I feel that ranked games are so much more fun. Every player has a clear objective in the game and work together towards a common goal. Even your enemies seem to be nicer people in ranked.

I also think that the toxic unranked environment is turning away new players. I myself don't feel like playing Dota after playing unranked because it just does not feel worth my time at all. I can't imagine how I'm going to clear the 100 hours on my new account so that I can play ranked on that account.
