  1. I held off on making this topic because few of you care. But they had a new format this year, the final games get their own weekend (probably a good change) making it easier to digest, probably easier on the players as well. This year the final four teams consist of 3 European teams and 1 Chinese team. Team Liquid and Secret, while considered good teams, have fought their way from last chance qualifiers (they did not do well enough in the season to get an invite to TI) all the way to the final weekend which is pretty special. Team Secret has the distinction of having Puppey on their team, the first TI winner and has been to every TI. While Team Liquid has Matumbaman a former TI winner (TI7) who says he will be retiring after this year's TI. Meanwhile Aster and Tundra also while strong teams, seemed like unlikely choices to make it to the final four but both are looking strong, Tundra in particular. Games will start after everyone's bedtime since it is in Singapore but you can always watch the VOD later.
  2. I've been criticized in the past about not being up front about what game this is. So I've rectified that so none of you ever have to click on the thread. 7.31 cam out, not a huge patch but added a new hero, Techies got reworked, and neutral creeps got more dangerous? Dota2 - Introducing Primal Beast WWW.DOTA2.COM Dota 2 - Introducing Primal Beast - Rushing savagely through enemies and allies alike, Primal Beast pounds into battle as one born to raise a ruckus. Also a couple of new items and neutral creeps And Axe wins the patch?
  3. Also, anime Mirana is in the game now! @Greatoneshere
  4. Originally scheduled for last year but delayed due to COVID, and then denied by the original country it was supposed to be held in, Sweden, The International will finally take place on the 7th from Bucharest, Romania. The prize pool is $40 million dollars. The winning team gets $18 million dollars the last place team gets a lousy $100,000. The schedule is below https://www.dota2.com/esports/ti10/schedule The twitch stream should have the nice interactive overlays for people https://www.twitch.tv/dota2ti And that's all I have to give you since like 1 other person around here cares about this.
  5. File this one under seems like it was inevitable but they held out an announcement for a pretty long time So you can work on the battle pass for a whole year now!
  6. I know that none of you care but I've been watching the DOTA 2 (Saying it up front so you can check out of the thread right now) AniMajor tournament (Taking place in Kyiv) and it's been fun to watch, but also the production of the tournament has been pretty impressive as well. It's somewhat disheartening there could be no audience there to watch. Today is the last day of the tournament. The lower bracket final is between T1 (Southeast Asia Team) and Evil Geniuses (North American Team) and the winner will face PSG.LGD (Chinese team) in the grand final. Peak viewership has been at 580,000 and they are trying to break records so make sure you give it a look even if ever so briefly. 👀
  7. Dota2 - Introducing Dawnbreaker WWW.DOTA2.COM Dota 2 - Introducing Dawnbreaker and the 7.29 Gameplay Update Looks like mostly minor changes this patch, some interesting nerfs, a water rune But the greatest buff of all time
  8. Dota 2 Dota 2 - The Mistwoods Update Cliffnotes for the The Mistwoods Update A New Hero - Hoodwink NEW Aghanim's Shards A lot of hero changes New items and new neutral items Also of note: Game now starts at night time and turns to day once creeps spawn
  9. 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
  10. Pretty huge update: Two new heroes, Map rework, free couriers, Neutral Creeps drop items (Poor Man's Shield, Ring of Aquila and Iron Talon are back!) no more side shops, now they are outposts http://www.dota2.com/outlanders/ I'm not posting it all but... And unfortunately for @osxmatt they did not help Troll out.
  11. Also Drow got a remodel
  12. In case you don't know, which is probably 99% of you, Valve produces this True Sight documentary. Usually it is so well produced that one can find it enjoyable despite the content matter. This one is coming to theaters January 15, well one theater anyway. So if you're in Denmark be sure to go and see it!
  13. Check the page for all the stolen spell effects http://www.dota2.com/frosthaven/#BG3 Supernova looks pretty cool
  14. I've been meaning to jump back in for a couple of months now but figured I'd wait for this patch to hit. Seems pretty big. Removing Aquila which was like a core item for every agility hero is a big change, along with other stuff. A lot of characters got ability reworks. Very interesting. I'll post the Purge 10 hour video whenever he uploads it.
  15. That's right, this board's most hated tournament is back and is graciously being played in Vancouver this year (rather than Seattle) Group stage is August 15 - 18 and main event is 20 - 25 Group stage schedule List of teams below: Watch live video from dota2ti on www.twitch.tv Here's a link to all the streams including the newcomer stream
  16. Pretty interesting, they pulled an "out now" and the game just updated http://www.dota2.com/grimstroke
  17. Here's the stream: Watch OpenAI Five Benchmark from OpenAI on www.twitch.tv @legend
