I am bandwagon rooting for Secret this TI and they have taken an early lead. Therefore, Mineski will win. Sorry Secret fans, I am cursing you just by liking your team.

rtz, hector, or nisha then. I would have looked at who was playing before setting paparazi lol, I just assumed it was vici but forgot they swapped sides to avoid rematches.

Actually it probably would have been hector so I could root double hard for infamous

Why not Monet? Then if RNG moved on you would have at least had the double there.

They used to be a defend your base / defend your push thing, but now you see them being used for team fights in the middle. Maybe itís just me, but it feels like teams consequently arenít buying as much in items now for mid-game teamfight buybacks.

You stated something different about the game, but why do you consider that a bad thing? Mid-fight buybacks make fights more exciting and add more of a consequence for the next death, making the game more exciting and opening new opportunities.

My guess is that we'll get three new hero announcements this time, one announced each of the last three days. (so, two more incoming)

There are some unused voice lines for a mind control based hero people have been bringing up, and there is also the theory that Aghanim will be involved somewhere due to the aghs patch we got recently.

Man I want to choose the right fantasy cards for today but I can't possibly predict LGD vs Liquid. It seems like Liiquid are going strong but I feel like LGD is going to be fueled by pure spite to get back to the finals.

For the rest of the day, since the Midas Mode map had some glitches that were making the kills not count for enough and were making the camera hard to control for casters.

the post below grandgrants is worth reading to get some perspective on his apology today, given that it's from 2014.

This link isn't working for me, it feels like the end of the URL is cut off or something.

What the gently caress, is that seriously supposed to be an apology? Why are people like Zai replying with "Very well put and inspiring"?? Im losing my goddamned mind right now

I think it's supposed to be him doubling down on being an rear end in a top hat with a title meant to stick it to the people who would legitimately ask him to apologize. That's how I'm reading into it, anyways.

you would have to live under a rock to not know how grandgrant is (or at the very least was, probably seems more like still is). he was publicly an absolutely massive piece of poo poo for years.

I honestly don't pay much attention to him. I do remember him (and BSJ maybe?) getting into trouble during some segment they did at the BTS house a long while back.

Curious what you think Slacks is up to with Arkosh? He did a stupid WWE style ending today where they "won" by typing a string of random characters into chat and it cut to the enemy team's ancient exploding:

https://clips.twitch.tv/BumblingBadPeanutCoolStoryBob

They said the match was to determine if No Pango goes into the BTS Pro series that's happening right now. I figured it would be to create a stupid publicity stunt where BTS says that they don't permit winning via magic or something and then lets No Pango into the tournament instead of Arkosh (because presumably Arkosh is made of other players who are playing in the tournament as well?) but they haven't announced anything yet.

This was a joke. It was just a fake ending. Also no matter what you think of Slacks (besides that he's a national treasure), anything that builds interest in NA dota is good.

I'm more talking about the idea that apparently their opponent thought they were playing for something real, but they weren't. At the very least you gotta let the other team in on it or tell them it's not a real wager. Maybe they did do that and the other team are just good actors and fooling everyone, but it's hard to tell.

I am as big of a Slacks fan as anyone but if it turns out that he basically said to his stack "Sure, bet on this game, try your hardest, and here's the backup plan if you're about to lose where we can say you won anyways" and didn't share that with the other team it's a pretty dick move.

It seems the running theory based on leaks is that every hero has a new ability that is updated from one of their old abilities, granted by an aghs shard
