There SHOULD be a patch this month but who fuckin knows. Valve is apparently tinkering with their webpages a bit which hints at something, but no movement on their test environment as of yet.

lol seriously have none of you ever ended up in a game with slacks?

seriously. I've actually been totally fine with him in the very rare moments that he chills out and acts like a normal human for a moment (like his video talking about the dota sex scandal stuff), but his standard setting of "wow I'm a really GOOFBALL hehe" is so unfunny and exhausting

Hey I actually just generally agree with you and just want a second favorite caster behind OD that's not a sexpest. Sorry to be toxic.

But yes I queued with him while in party queue once. I was like 1.5k under his solo rank when he started climbing, and his wife was sleeping so we only got him in text chat, but I said during pick phase that if he was really slacks he would carry us with techies.

And he did.

And we dunked on Purge for doubting him. It was great.

Cap is the absolute worst at this. He has zero humility and zero capability of taking criticism, and just turns into an ultra-defensive, arrogant oval office at the first opportunity.

I'd probably do the same thing if I ever had to interact with dota reddit/twitter tbh

Remember that time you were briefly hired at TI and came running into the thread saying that everyone was so mean and we should all just be nice to eachother? Good times.

The one thing every single caster is guilty of, good or bad, and has been guilty of since 2012 is having a firm stance that the Dota 2 reddit is awful and terrible and every opinion there is dogshit and everyone there is annoying and entitled and freaks out constantly and is desperate to start poo poo and you should never go there; but in the same breath also absolutely refuses to stop posting on the dota 2 reddit and refuses to stop talking about the dota 2 reddit ever therefor making it by default the only public dota forum that matters

like hey Cap (and literally everyone else) if the dota 2 reddit is so loving annoying and stupid how about you log off. Just log off. Turn of your computer, or just close your eyes tyler the creator style. Pretend you do not see it. Stop going to the website. No one is making you, you are not missing anything

Alliance first picked Hoodwink. Has she been all that substantial this tournament?

Edit:Judging by this first 15 minutes, no.

its not a top tier support, but in the right hands (cr1t) and the right draft it looks dang nasty
to me it seems you can't pick Hoodwink as your sole disable, the more disables you have the more you can activate Hoodwink even beyond just securing the bushwhack. Alliance's plan was to initiate with bushwhack I assume into Lesh/Mars?

Also VP is going places.

Ayesee was only good because he had Draskyl attached to him

I woke up and turned the stream on right before that rosh fight so that was pretty cool

After trying Hoodwink to see what's going on with her, the Ult is really really good and on a way lower cooldown than I would have imagined. Break is like the most important thing in the game to counteract the heroes who are running riot on the patch and it's one of the very few ways to get it (the other being Doom and Viper who surprise are also massive this patch - Silver Edge is unusably bad). She's got a decent stun, too, and that's pretty much all there is to it.

Hoodwink first pick might seem crazy, but then look over at VP's first two bans and Viper's there too, so they clearly want you to have to pick the inferior break when they inevitably pick some poo poo like Timbersaw or Bristle

I miss Draskyl casting stuff. I wish he'd start doing it again but I think it's been to long and the space is to crowded now.
