    My keyboard is fucked on my laptop. 3 keys don't work that are all fundamental to me playing. 3 years old. I took it in and would cost 500 dollars to fix. (LMAO fuck yourself, apple) It's apparently a super common problem and they fix it for free on the models directly after mine, but not mine.

    So needless to say they will be getting none of my dollars and I will be on a doto break until I get a new one from a company that doesn't suck ass.

    The "dead lane" concept of his is one of the most beneficial/game winning tips I've come across.

    I think it's only people that abused a bug or mechanic i.e. bot smurfing or obvious feeding during calibration. You should be fine.

    Has anyone played this Dota Chess custom game? It is apparently the next big thing. Would be a top 10 steam game if it was a solo (free) game based on its player counts

    Haven't had much desire to play it, but it's pretty fun to watch at least. BSJ has been playing it more than dota lately I think.

    I've kind of been thinking assist gold needs to get nerfed. If you're ahead by any significant amount there's basically no reason not to just run as 5. There would actually be a trade off in sending 4-5 heroes for one pickoff rather than it being totally worth it every time, no matter how much up you are.

    You should. It’s fun because you aren’t depending on your teammates. And it’s like hearthstone meets Dota 2 meets chess meets wild. It’s also low key yet addicting.

    What a finish. RTZ on the arc warden and the paparazzi on his terrorblade.

    EG wins in 58ish minutes. Game 3 to follow!

    Some of those mid game fights he was doing 20k+ damage and the next closest was like 12k. Just wild.

    not just specific to his arc warden, but its unreal how good his farming efficiency is. set a record this match for his 8 minute midas.

    S4 struggled on the timber early but it was expected going against the tri-lane. He was unkillable late game and was reallt good chase.

    I was triggered after game 1 when they tried to go the whole game never fighting once so I missed it. May have to go back and watch.
