Picslaeder or however you spell his name just ghosted his team and Young Suck voluntarily forfeited. That was their last game of the day but I'd be surprised if they actually play tomorrow either

Shame for Young Suck. Shame I didn't switch to stream two earlier as well!

Smoke onto highground really did not pay off for sing. Biggest gold swing of the event so far I think.

B9 hit the Morph pretty much every time with the Ice Blast too, which is impressive considering how mobile the Morph is

True!

As an european, I much prefer this to normal TI schedule where finals started at like 2 AM

:same: This is WAY worse than NA times. Still no-lifing it as much as I can though.

I'm so excited. I watched OG's True Sight, then OG watching OG's True Sight, then the interview/Q&A with OG after they watched OG's True sight. Last year was magic. This year can't be as good but I'm still all-in for bad-time-zone-DOTAS. :getin:

Ice cold take.

Still, they were written off at the start of the last TI as well for good reason and won the whole thing so you never know :v: .

I have this itchy feeling that it's VP's year... but this may not be the first time I've said that.

Stick to the multi stream or bail and choose a single stream?

Hard call tbh. I think I'll give the multi a shot and then switch to secret vs alliance if it doesn't jam.

My starting preference is Secret/Alliance > Liquid/Newbee > TNC/Keen > LGD/Chaos, but when it comes down to it, I'll tune into games for heroes I want to watch over teams I want to watch during the group stages.

Oh that's a fun strategy. Will keep my eye out for BROOD GAMES. (Or just follow matu...)

Mirana is apparently the hotness right now. I know that much, but not why. Maybe someone who is good at dota can explain it.

Secret are playing mid-late and Alliance don't have a late game, unless they are like, highground by 25 minutes they still lose.

RazzleDazzleHour posted:

I think it's also worth mentioning that while Ogre totally hosed all over the lane, he's pretty useless into the lategame, especially when Alliance had Tiny and DP as their cores, neither of which cared about having Bloodlust basically at all.

I mean they first picked Ogre and then had to do something to try to not just instantly lose to Brood, so they went for lane-dom and a strong early. They were out-drafted pretty hard and very nearly won, though Secret fed pretty hard as well. Still, trust in greedy spida and you will win if it goes late, even when you try really hard to lose like Secret and FEED YOUR rear end OFF.

Matu Lycan on stream 4, could be fun. Not sure I can pass up another Alliance / Secret game though.
