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?

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...
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.
Wow, Chinese teams coming up really strong thus far!
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.

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.
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.
