Few pages back but pretty sure these are called "value points" not casual points.

I would argue that there is a subtle semantic difference between the two terms. A value point is when level 1 in a skill is significant to your build but the benefit drops off at higher levels for whatever your purposes are. Pos3 Dooms taking Scorched Earth at 2 or pos3 BH taking a point in Shadow Walk would be a value point. A casual point in a skill is when you have a situational benefit to level a skill. If you're playing pos1 Bloodseeker and your team keeps harassing effectively, getting a very early point (or points) in Thirst will casually buff your early game.

At the end of the day, if you wanna use them interchangeably, I don't think folks will notice/care.

I watched some iltw games out of boredom and it's suddenly not surprising at all that Nigma keeps losing, he's so easy to tilt and when he gets tilted he becomes incredibly toxic lol

How to beat Nigma: gently caress with iltw and he'll do the work for you

drat that's too bad, he looked like a really promising pos1 during the animajor group stages, I was hoping to see more of him. Maybe some of GH's zen energy can rub off on him over time.

But lol they'll probably burn out in the qualifiers and then break up and find a new carry. Hopefully the rest will stay together, since they've been a cohesive team for a long time now and have obviously gotten a lot of good results together.

Honestly I think Nigma will win the qualifier unless something clicks for OG. Tundra and Viking are gonna be huge dark horses. Liquid could probably do it but I donít really have faith in them on lan so low key donít want them to go:

He was in a good mood post major because someone gave him a huge effort post on Reddit stroking his ego. This week he is complaining about the community and not wanting to go on Reddit or Twitter, he canít make up his mind.

I only listen to it to hold me over until sundyren cast though

Oh geez, shard was also introduced this year. Shard at 15 seems too imbalanced, but also necessary to make the addition meaningful to the tournament.

What are the player numbers like right now?

I played 3 games last week with at least one player in each game having less than 20 hours played.

Could easily be Smurfs depending on bracket and play. Also the anime probably dragged some new blood in. IIRC itís still the most popular steam game by far?

Steamcharts today:
Csgo 700k peak 960
DOTA 500k peak 660
Pubg 300k peak 420

So is there just some issues with the MM then because there is no way new players are getting queued with others that have 1000s of hours.

I honestly thought numbers were down because we are towards the end of the patch but those are still respectable numbers for this late into a patch.
