but cdec didn't win... and EG isn't chinese

TI7 was so shit

The production value felt like a major, and I blame PGL for it. At least TI6 felt epic.


u wot
otherwise okay

at least be consistent
also no one liked ti 1, not even the players and liquid picked most of heroes in dota pool through ti 7

And that deep sea theme was fucking stupid too.
>reddit posts that reddit LITERALLY RUINED the international by asking valve to disable their spongebob meme map

Meanwhile TI6 had the garden map which actually worked as battlegrounds for a clash of the titans.
hope whatever this year's green shit is, that it has a presentable terrain

They should just use Immortal Gardens for every TI tbqh

What do you guys think of 747's gyrocopter

tier 1 NA carry

>ppd the greatest drafter



at least check facts before you shitpost, EG never picked lesh in grandfinal, they even gave him away in three games

how the FUCK do you deal with a lvl 6 jugg as a melee offlaner?
If you go near the creep wave, he just baldefurys, if you try run away, he just omnislashes you when he stops spinning, if you stay near the creeps he just deals massive damage with bladefury and kills all the creeps around you anyway.
Do you just have to sit back and watch him cs like a cuck with your thumb up your ass?

yes because cdec cant play them, which is the crown jewel of ppds "master" draft. they either waste a ban on lesh or pick it themselves

you ask a gank from your supps, maybe your mid

i don't like ppd much but it takes balls to give away most feared hero of the tournament three times in deciding match, more so if you lost 0-2 to the same team day before

3 > 5 > 4 > 6 > 7 > 1
Everyone losing their shit over memepush was the beginning of the end.

>brainlet tries to go offlane
give it up faggot. If you need to ask then you don't deserve to go chad offlane.

People remember the finals instead of the event. TI4 EG was actually their underdog story not 5.

TI4 groups were great.
However the main event was so bad that it's worse than every other TI by default.

I miss TI4 C9 dotards...

Bro there are 5 sub 20 minute memepush games 4 of which are in the third place and final. People remember that particularly the end of the tournament instead when they think of TI4.

Yeah because only 8 teams made it into the main event because it had the absolute worst structure of any main event in TI history

So any christian dance/techno remixes like this DL one?
I believe it is what the kids call "lit af" nowadays and I can see myself getting into it

>groups actually mattering
TI6 was the worst format by far.

Reminder that Windrunner's feet are for tender loving and care!

boston major will always have a place in my heart. i went and saw it live on the last day, got balls deep into the ad finem hype, then played 7.00 on the test client all day the day after

objective ranking coming through

They know CDEC can't play lesh, that's why they're confident in letting CDEC have them all 3 games. CDEC can't afford to ban Lesh since they have to get rid of the Naga Techies menace, so they have to always secure the Lesh otherwise EG will have their cake and eat it too. Its a massive fucking draft advantage

Explain how ti6 is any different from all the TI's with the exact same format

Tell me about the music man.
Why is he here?
Does he hate being surrounded by autists who don't understand music as much as he looks like he does?

>SingSing has more viewers than Bulldog
Uhh.... marmalade?


Because they did 6 after 5 which I wrote off as "well people are freaked out over 4's finals still".
>7 only different because they added two teams to the 16 so two could be dropped from groups
Playing only for seeding so you can play in a best of one is fucking awful. There shouldn't be a single bo1 in the tournament and teams should be dropped in pools to accommodate that.

Which hero gets diminished the most in late game after being a god during early/mid game? For me it's Timber. You can bully people during the laning stage and even kill the supports with ease, they will need a 4 man roster to bring you down.

Then you become the ultimate cuck and your 22 charge bloodstone falls down to 4 charges because people lock you down and fry you like a nugget.

>inb4 some Timber cuck says it's not true
You obviously haven't played or watched any competitive doto.

So im confused
1,2,3,5 having best of 1's is fine?
But 6 and 7 having them is bad?

Fogged sounds so sick

Gh alone was godly with so many heroes, MC ratting and being a good off laner, Kuro with the support. His AA and Rubick is just untouchable. Also Matu's Lycan and Brood which just spells instant gg. And then there's Miracle. They're impossible to ban against....

but then there's Naga

Will he do it? Will Icefrog give us the XP changes we need to bring Dota one step closer to glory?

Attached: 1498585375420.png (1036x287, 38K)

It's SPELL amp, not magic amp. Every active ability benefits.

747 is fucking awful
the gooks don't deserve this

only build kaya if magic is gonna be better than phys. lina is a rightclicker

and what's the purpose of that change other than satisfying your nostalgia

longer games, we already have turbo mode so none of these reddit changes need to be kept anymore

What is disruptors winrate in recent pro games


yeah having 1.5 circlet worth of stats couple of minutes later will sure make games longer

IMT disband fucking when?

do you have any evidence that average game times are shorter?
or are you just gonna continue with your baseless spouting

>not spells
good lord the meme about only redditors being left on /d2g/ might be real


deathball meta is even worse now that supports can mindlessly feed without any repercussions
but this is what nostagliafags want right? their epin 1v9 games where only carries matter


at least the game got a lot less players.

are you retarded?

>muh reddit boogeyman
bounty runes are garbage now and have nothing to do with xp
do they not recieve patch notes in venezuala?

as odd as it seems, this reminds me of pinkerton's album cover

Whose dick do you think they sucked for that beta key?

>There are no reviews for this product

It's Ghostik

quote where i said bounty runes have anything to do with xp
bounty runes are a reddit feature, so are communist comeback mechanics, so are absurd talents and even shrines and so is the scan. hopefully all of them get nerfed to shit or removed entirely.
