    TI 4 Final Game Thoughts

    LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME but seriously, most people agreed this year's final few games were a serious disappointment it seems, Newbee is good and all, but that early aggressive play-style vs early aggressive play-style is incredibly boring and bad for viewers. Hopefully we can shake up the meta a bit and change that around because oh man was that no fun. The bright side is a hero like techies is a PERFECT counter to that because a good techies makes pushing really difficult, so hopefully that addition will change things up.

    Sorry, just got back from my brother's wedding today and I was just watching to last game (and now am sad ) but most of this week I'll be free to play, just still gathering all the presents, unpacking everything, etc. from the weekend of travelling and returning. But nowI have nothing planned for over a month that will take me far from my computer so as long as anyone sees me on steam, I'm generally ready to play

    Good times last night

    Great time teaching a couple of new people last night with stabwound, learning curve is basically a straight line up but always glad to give people some early pointers to start them off on the path, hopefully we can get more in next week!

    Happy 4th of July!

    Happy 4th everyone, enjoy the day safely! Was there ever a better day to announce techies than today? How funny would that be

    Game tonight

    people keep being online but no one gets into mumble or messages me or anything, just stabwound and I like last week. We aren't going to be able to have a team at this rate, if people can't meet once a week then there is no point in trying. people are in games, even in games of dota at the time, but if there is no commitment then why bother?

    Game tonight

    Very important that people show up tonight, we have had no one around the last few weeks and we need to change that. Can't lead an invisible team, make sure you guys show up and support!

    10 freaking million dollars!

    Realize also that when sports like football and baseball first started, they weren't in much different shoes. Lots of players when those sports first started being played "professionally" had to have a second job because they made little to nothing from their sport. eSports is still very new, and most players at that level are being sponsored already so they can play constantly. It may not be what you consider a "wage", but if someone came to my door and said they'd pay for me to have my own place to live and eat as long as I use their gear and play well, I'd quit my job in a second. There is still plenty of time for a playing circuit to be made, no one really expected this kind of prize pool. If this kind of thing continues, and eSports stay popular, I'm sure that things will change. Why wouldn't they? Plenty of money to be made from the first person to make a major gaming circuit that everyone shoots for.

    10 freaking million dollars!

    I agree with stab and hotaruz, they are all being sponsored to exist and play video games, if you want to make prize money then you have to be the best (or at least closer to it). Broadening the prize payouts just means the best make less, that's mildly disheartening
  13. I'm also generally around and happy to help, add me on steam, Dankey Kang (the one with the weird donkey kong face picture)
