Also,Valve should have invited KP to the International qualifiers, those guys actually had chances unlike QPAD/ICCUP
In related news, LGD.cn lost their invite to TongFu because they dropped longDD from their roster.
I need to find a new game, I can't stand people in this game much longer. It's not that they're rude, i'm finding this community way better then LoL, but man these people really need to be playing bot games. Every night I get games where someone on my team dies on average 7 times within around 8-9 minutes. I can only win if I play nyx, which is cheating at the low rank im at. I'm only lvl 9 with 102 wins, so im not that great, but at least I had experience coming into this game from League. I dunno, I think I need a break from the dota genre for a while, might go back to WoW and play the Horde for once, only stuck with alliance out of friend convenience. Im Ragu on steam if you wanna group! Maybe i'll have better luck not doing solo this whole time.
not to be rude or something ... but you get players around youre skills level :| if you wont to many games in a row you cant avoid a few losses and probably some really bad players but that's not so often ...
also lvl 9 and 100-200 games are pretty little tbh ... i sometimes get that random feeder but not so often , just stomp with nyx a few games and you should get better players with you and vs you ...
I still get the odd idiot and but far more commonly my issue is finding a person who legitimately knows how to support is a Christmas miracle, and by that I simply mean letting the Carry get the LH's and Warding along with buying the courier nothing more nothing less.
Hence why I enjoy playing support in dota (I enjoy support roles anyway in other games) as I can play and know I'm doing something right. Heck today a guy added me on Steam after a game we played because he said I was a good support. That was nice.
But what it comes down to with this train of thought is that just because you know stuff about how to play doesn't mean you yourself can execute it well and that's how I feel about my own experiences atm. Knowing how to play and actually playing well are two different things.
Is anyone going to the tourney in Seattle? Just wondering if anyone had luck getting tickets, if they actually sell out like ultra fast type thing and what they cost? I see on the game they arent currently available which means they were late or all sold out in 20 mins!
edit: that was worse than trying to get a blizzcon ticket lol, i didnt get crap oh well

Meanwhile it looks like Valve have already figured out one way to improve TI from last year: http://blog.dota2.com/2013/05/introd...ve-compendium/ bringing extra content while increasing the prize pool.
Interesting, let's make the first bet on how high the prize pool will get from the fans. A great time for the community to show how much better it is than LoL's, but time will tell if they pull through =p
On a related note I'm expecting concurrent viewer numbers to peak above 250k in Twitch during the finals or whatever across all but the Chinese streams.
