  1. That's right folks. The International 9 starts today. Group stages run through the 15-18 and the main event begins on the 20 - 25. As of posting the prize pool is at $32,946,540 - The first place team is guaranteed to win nearly 15 million dollars. Even the last place teams will get $80,000 Q: What is The International? A: The International is the name of an esports tournament hosted by Valve for their very popular game DOTA 2. 18 teams are in this year's tournament, only one will emerge victorious. List of 18 teams in spoiler tag: Q: Why should I care? A: TI is basically the Super Bowl of esports featuring the best DOTA players in the world. EVO, while large is more like the world series. TI is much more of a spectacle and also has the largest prize pool in esports. Q: I have no idea what this game is and how it's played and I'll be unable to follow it. A: Valve recognizes that not only is DOTA an intimidating game to learn how to play it is probably just as hard to watch. They have tried to quell these fears by introducing folks to the "Newcomer Stream" where the casters will routinely explain game mechanics, items and how to play the game to the audience and it also has informational overlays to make it easier to watch. As any sport jumping in my be confusing at first, people still aren't even sure how NFL football is played but they still watch it. In any case you can watch the newcomer stream HERE Q: I might watch but I want to see what all this nonsense is before I commit A: You should probably watch this well produced video (at least part of it) about last year's champions, OG. It humanizes the game as well as explains a lot of what I posted ITT Q: esports suck A: Well, you can continue to not post in this thread like you did last year. With all of that out of the way, here is the main TI stream (most likely the main event will be on this one) but there are 4 other streams as well Now for the bad news, since the tournament is being played in China this year most of you will be asleep or at work while the games are being played. For instance tonight (which is the 15th in China) games start at 6PM pst and will run through the night the last series wrapping up at 4AM pst. The good(ish) news is the main event finals would be running on Saturday at 7PM pst so most people can catch that if they are willing to stay up on a Saturday night. If there's anything else I can do for you just holla
  2. As 2019 draws to a close, we're starting to get the lists from media outlets as to what they feel are the best games of 2019.

  3. Winter Sale is on now. Less enthusiasm than previous years probably but there are quests you can do to get an easy $5 off!
  4. https://multistre.am/capcomfighters/evo1/evo2/evo3/evo/layout14/ Looks like SFV has fallen off, not the main event on the last day. That's saved for Smash, which means I won't be disappointed if I don't see it. Also, special shout out to @GameDadGrant when I mentioned Under Night a year ago and he said, "nah" and look it's at Evo.
  5. I haven nothing to say really, seems like it's not a very exciting class this year. Here's the draft order
  6. Nintendo Co. plans to release a new version of its Switch videogame console next year to maintain the sales momentum of the device, according to suppliers and others with direct knowledge of the plan.
