I don't think Valve gives a poo poo about growing Dota anymore, to the extent that they ever did care

They did have an Argentinian on the team, but yeah, four out-of-region players was really sketchy and all right-minded people should be glad they failed.

Right-minded people don't have anything to do with this game/genre

Had a bunch of people in the Dota 2 thread laugh at the 1-4-1 Skywrath build. Told them a ton of high-rank skywrath spammers and top leaderboard players did the build and they just sort of stopped responding.

Aster's Skywrath has 1-3-1 skill build. Looking down at my high horse at all these pitiful haters.......

Goons also used to poo poo on Shadowblade relentlessly when it was actually super good and ended up getting nerfed several times.

Not really sure what Lesh was thinking game 2 of Secret against Mineski. Movespeed not that useful when you're caught and bursted down over and over.

Seems like based on Secret's draft they want to be taking towers fast and setting the pace of the game but instead the opposite is happening.

I was just thinking 'Alch has a rather long buyback cooldown, their 0.2% chance to win depends on that' and then somehow Alch died.

That seemed far more Mineski blowing it completely than Secret doing something amazing.

Mineski probably would have won if they retreated after they got megas. Wait for Alch's buyback then come back with Aegis and finish.

Why did ana not have buyback? Was it still on cooldown from the Rosh fight or did he not have the gold?

Yeah if Valve still put a lot of effort into this game they'd integrate all the cool stream stuff right into the client - multi-cam views, custom overlays, etc. And of course the loving awful caster audio which is hilariously bad after 9 years.

I think that's being a little unfair to Valve. Like, you can view important games in client and it mostly works which is more than you can say for a lot of other esports.

Meepo, just because it would be complete insanity. Unfortunately I think I heard at some point the game gets really buggy with multiple Meepo players in one match.

No, we need organizers to follow common norms, we're in a dark place if you have to make talent sign a "don't drug and rape women" CoC.

For that specifically? No, but you do need to hold people to some kind of standard. Otherwise if a situation does crop up everyone ends up sitting on their hands
because there's no defined way of dealing with it.
