An interesting inversion of this story is that I've tried to play League with very little regularity for the last like...year or so, but it's really hard to really get a solid understanding of what each hero does because you can't play as them. I had to 1v1 against Riven I think her name is? and I still have no idea what she does. Dota even has tooltips saying "hey if you're having trouble against a certain hero, pick that hero so you can figure out what it's bad at" and that's for definitely true. There used to be a ton of hype around the all-hero challenge, and it's kind of sad that that's been dropping in favor of compendium challenges that require you to buy-in, because those sorts of incentives are great for new players to try all the heroes.

she presses the e button then the q button then the w button then the q button 2 more times and you die

Normally EE is wrong about everything but this is an opinion I hear all the time. High-level dota has all these loving weirdos like Mursglacias/Rodeo/Mio that have text documents full of players that they'll throw the game if they're on the same team, every time. But, dota's punishment system is all automated and hosed and none of them ever get punished, so it's not like League where that poo poo doesn't fly. I especially expect guys like EE are on a LOT of people's shitlists. All the high-rated NA guys sit in each others streams, not to try and streamsnipe, but to get in a game with someone they know isn't going to just go apeshit and throw the game, because it's super common.

It's not because the person thinks they know better than everyone else that a game is over or not, it's because even if someone is just running it down the midlane the game is still gonna take 30 mins to finish, and man running it down mid only gets more and more common the higher you climb

And you think those guys will vote yes to a forfeit?

RazzleDazzleHour posted:

League only takes 3/5 to forfeit, 4/5 at the 12 minute mark. So, it doesn't matter if one guy refuses

Yeah and it was sick in league to surrender then disconnect because then it needed 1 less yes vote but then you still counted as a yes vote so a 2 man could literally hold your team hostage.

the same things that make dota so fun to watch are the things that inevitably make the people playing Dota insane pieces of poo poo, I feel like we've had this exact conversation when the Ceb stuff first came out, it's a stupid high-stakes high-pressure game where you have to be on the ball for anywhere between twenty minutes to three hours and one late-game fuckup can cost you everything, I don't know how we solve this, maybe it's something dumb and simple like introducing timeouts during the games, maybe it's something wider in the culture around Dota that will take years of investment to fix, but until something significant happens all your favorite Dota players are gonna be total assholes

The stage is set, OG has just defeated Liquid for the honor of claiming the Aegis of the Immortal twice in a row, an unprecedented achievement. Ceb screams “CEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEB!” As he exits the booth, making haste towards the podium bearing his claimed trophy. The arena, silent save for a few stragglers applauding, is filled with straight sitting, arms crossed Chinese refusing to acknowledge superior Dota. As Ceb picks up the aegis, Dove approaches for the post TI interview. “Wow! Fantastic Dota! Congratulations on winning TI! Now, the question everyone has been dying to ask: which is your favorite Chinese team?”

CDL is dead on arrival and a joke to everyone in the industry. Optic is a shell of its former self, 100T followed EGs lead by pulling out and FaZe will drop a similar statement anyday. At least it'll shed light on that piss poor franchise model and pull the curtains back on how Blizzard has been inflating OWL numbers. That's going to be a whole situation with serious consequences.


Imagine thinking it's impossible someone with a career in the gaming/esports industry isn't a goon. There are dozens of us. Stop scaring them away. w


Does Reddit know C9 is making an EU stack yet or nah? I don't read r/dota2 either way.

edit: clarity

I mean c9s own twitter hinted at getting a team like 2 days before you even started posting your leaks or whatever.
