I really really am excited to watch the china matches. They were good, but the whole thing is kinda dragged down by having a couch of Kyle/Purge/Basskip (and I actually love Basskip).

Tonight, they have helped it out by adding Nahaz to those three. :) :) :)

Im already sick of every single one of Kyle's sentences being some sort of derail about making GBS threads on Nahaz over some random topic. Basskip and Purge clearly wanted to talk about the games/drafts last night and I know Nahaz will too but Kyle is just so obnoxious

Had a bunch of people in the Dota 2 thread laugh at the 1-4-1 Skywrath build. Told them a ton of high-rank skywrath spammers and top leaderboard players did the build and they just sort of stopped responding.

Aster's Skywrath has 1-3-1 skill build. Looking down at my high horse at all these pitiful haters.......

He's going Daedelus because his goal is to transform into Ember Spirit, not Lesh. Daed Ember is great and in a very similar regard, Daed Waveform Attacks are great

I mean that's cool and all but like how does that change the game? Morphling didn't lack damage this game, they just needed lockdown for the AM. Being a Daedalus Ember is cool but couldn't you just be a Shadow Shaman instead? Or like an Axe or something? Idk, I'm obviously much worse at DotA.

Shadow Shaman is all single-target lockdown and you can't do that vs Ember AND Antimage. You grab the Ember and AM abyssals and kills you, you grab the AM and Ember quad remnants you to death. They weren't lacking damage only because of the Morphling, so you can't have him giving up that damage for utility. Transforming into Ember lets you do that damage from a safe distance, he's just the most valuable hero in the game to be, it's just way better to be him than any teammate and in that case the teammate talent is useless so why not get the waveform one

Goons also used to poo poo on Shadowblade relentlessly when it was actually super good and ended up getting nerfed several times.

Idk, I still don't really get it. If you're an Ember, you have no way to kill AM or Ember so it doesn't matter that the damage you deal is safer. You have Linkens and BKB, you're really well situated to be relatively safe if you can stunlock one of the Aster cores. You can also Waveform in and use Call if you want an aoe stun. I just don't understand how you can ever kill Ember or AM if you're not turning into a hero with lockdown.

I thought sleep deprived Kyle and sleep deprived Purge talking poo poo while Basskip desperately tries to steer them back to dota was a cute dynamic v:shobon:v Not sure if I hate myself enough to listen to Nahaz though.

I think that Kyle gets poo poo unnecessarily because part of his role on panels is to fill down time with noise and obviously a lot of that noise is going to be nonsense but it's still better than awkward silence while waiting for the next game.

Nah, Kyle thinks that he's the designated funnyman in every group that he's in and tries to one-up every person constantly to the point where he doesn't care about what other people are talking about, he just needs to say something. Nahaz told one dad joke, Kyle immediately starts interrupting discussions to tell four of them. Repeat ad infinitum.

You can look at literally every other hub to see them filling time in better ways. Kyle just has... like, the sense of humor, the interests, the political acumen, of a 14 year old kid who found google. Or an NPR listener. And wants to demonstrate that, Actually, He Knows Things Now. And he does it even when the games are playing. And then, yeah, he tries to like, jab at other couch people and ~roast~ them in ways that don't land, or that would maybe work better if he knew the target better, or if everyone knew how to roll on after. He doesn't know when to let a conversation drop, or will pull a discussion back to a previous topic once he comes up with a killer joke for it. It just... really really uneven, but it's like he's aggressively mashing all his 'Socialize' buttons at once and holding them down.

gosh, I dunno, this is way too much analysis, but its mega bad and it is not some 'ah, it's just because he is burdened with filling time.' It happens during casts, between games, whenever.

He and his bro were homeschooled which explains a lot.

Dunno, I find him trying really hard and falling flat on his face more often than not funny instead obnoxious because it feels genuine or at least he's selling the persona very well.
