    Grant was a notorious shit head and raging alcoholic circa 2014 or so. Last couple of years really made an effort to not be awful and change his reputation, but woof especially the stuff about date rape/sexual assault is unforgivable.

    Tobi being a creepo isn’t surprising. Dude is weird.

    has to be hard for those other casters/talent who are friends with them, but man good for esports one the long run.

    Grant sounds like he was a shitty person re: things he said and did. But the date rape allegation seems really muddled (if you assume he didn't drug the girl).

    Things like this are why DotA is the best esport. The skill ceiling is infinite.

    If you guys haven't logged in, the summer event is really super fun, and doesn't even require a battle pass. I've enjoyed it.

    I have zero idea what's going on with this game in the 18mo since I left it, but I enjoyed this.

    I'm super excited that the indoor kids are getting their paychecks while real athletes are feeling the effects of Big Rona.

    Patch is super fun rn. I had a classic 10 game ranked losing streak the other week too and still enjoying it.

    the arc warden bubble makes all targets inside the bubble invulnerable unless you move inside the bubble too, and the AOE of bubble is exactly AOE of throne, so Miracle uses bubble on his hero and on tempest double AND immediately again off CD.

    My DotA career hit its zenith playing ranked solo 5pos and getting so furious that I smashed my laptop. Quite the moment to retire on.

    come play with Handcuffed and I. We play most nights now.
    Like, one out of every 5 is good. Have to ban techies though, or if it gets through, you should start insta picking it.

    Come on back and play casually. There's even MMR recalibration so you can throw 10 games and join us in the shit tier.

    miles you too.

    Also, username on steam is Dad now, not I'm Ron Burgundy since I play bot matches with my kids sometimes.

    i downloaded dota again maybe a month ago? haven't played a ranked game in 2 years.

    unranked and turbo to mess around on. definitely worth it.

    I still play a bit if anyone ever wants to party up.

    I played a DireTide game last night. To me it's the most fun special game mode ever. I usually don't play them much at all but I think I'll actually keep playing the DireTide mode fairly regularly.

    60hrs per week with work, ~20 spent on my MBA coursework, and try to squeeze out a little time for my wife. That was the problem with DotA for me, as infuriating as it could be, it was just such a time suck.

    I think mobility heros in general are pretty good in DireTide. Only played one game but picked weaver and dominated. No one buys detection and in my game at least there were barely any stuns.

    I probably have a similar number of hours playing golf throughout my entire life and I still am fucking terrible.

    hobbies are hobbies, and as long as they don’t interfere with relationships and work, physical health, they are fine.

    I love that you’re playing with your kids too.

    Don’t let them win, that’s how you create monsters like that Reservations at Dorsia guy...
