    Aren't the games on the first page supposed to be the highest MMR? There was a Leoric who put his first point into aura, had only one point in stun the entire game, no points in stats, and maxed crit first.

    Then again, he was Russian. But how is a Russian getting into a "high MMR" game in the first place?

    Yup, I'm gonna pick up one, too. Disappointed to see there's no mTw pennant. mTw's showing up as one of the teams in TI2, but they have no pennant? Why's that?

    its in game files but not in store yet, probably bacause valve and mTw organisation are finalizing business (teams gets % of money for each pennat sold)

    I really like to see how you play because all you do is bitch about everything and write racist/hatred comments like wishing cancer or saying entire country suck at dota. Seriously cut your fucking crap.

    ps: I'm not Russian.

    The game shows up first, then it gets specs because it's on the front page. I see games with 500 spectators get kicked down a spot for a fresh game with 0 specs all the time.

    As far as being on the FIRST page goes, it's never necessarily top MMRs because you get MMR penalties for queuing with groups. Most of the first page of games on any given day will be 5 stacks and not necessarily the best players. However, to be on the front page everyone in your group probably needs a decently high MMR anyway.

    Disappointing find: it appears as though only one "fan" per match with a pennant will get the drops on specific events (I.e. first blood, double kill, etc)

    Bit disappointing to find that out, don't think I'll waste money trying to get drops with pennants unless they change that...

    The pennants are in place to support the teams (they get a percentage of each pennant purchase and each upgrade), and is a way to make sure people watch the games live inside of the client. The prizes are random and not intended to be a lottery ticket.

    I was a bit gutted after seeing the last CLG - M5 game, because I sold Pajkatt on fantasyleague earlier today, and after his 18-4-17 or something Lycanthrope I missed out on a lot of points. Also, of course - in the end of the second game PGG being PGG and missing an entire black hole.

    You're welcome to view my games via my Steam profile. It shouldn't be hard to find.

    I wouldn't say "oh, well they're Russian/Brazilian" if there wasn't a hell of a lot of anecdotal (anecdotal is anecdotal, blah blah blah) evidence to back it up. I have encountered exactly three Brazilians that both spoke English and were at least as good as me at the game (understand, I'm above average at best, not even "good"), and all three of them were in the same clan and queuing together. The same goes for Russians, though I've met four that were pretty good at the game.

    The other dozens of each I've encountered? Most don't speak English at all (which is a big problem when you can't communicate with your team in a game like Dota), and the ones that do seem to use it only to insult others. With exception of the three and four people I've met that were actually pretty decent, the rest are just awful at the game.

    Why do you think people make so many jokes about RUs and BRs, and dread having them in their games? The stereotypes exist for a reason.

    Yeah, I'm glad TI makes it easier for us to see them in action. I love how differently they play compared to Western teams. I can't think of a Western team that would actually solo mid Wisp, but WE did it in the "qualifier" games versus Mouz and they actually made it work fairly well.

    Chinese are just on a different level. They get so much more out of morphling than any western teams. Everyone knows Morph is strong but their use of replicate is just phenomenal. I love how much Rubick we are seeing too, and he is doing extremely well

    It'll be good for the west to see how good they are not at dota.

    LGD currently undefeated at 8-0, iG down only one game with a 5-1 score. LGD bootcamped for three months straight in China. Everyone and their mother is expecting complete and utter Chinese domination though.

    Yep, there's a reason Rubick's my most played. Stupidly versatile hero. I play Windrunner and feel like I'm stuck doing only one thing now.

    Zenith completely shit on M5 to no one's surprise. 14 minute Bloodstone on Leshrac, and EB on Morphling at about that same time. Why are M5 even allowed into tournaments? I've seen five random pubs play better than they play.

    They're a big team, and they bring in big viewer numbers. Their sponsors helps bring more attention to the tournament.

    Plus, Valve has to invite them because PGG is IceFrog
