    I haven't played much lately, but it's because of how crazy work has been. Here's hoping I can get a few games in after deadlines pass.

    For me, loading Dredmor before bed is asking to miss hours of sleep. FTL, on the other hand, seems easier to drop at will. I tend to think it's because your doom is more certain than in Dredmor. ...

    A lot of us seem to be within ~200 above or below 3K MMR. I'm sure there are others like me who didn't really enjoy Ranked Mode enough to continue after calibration. So, in the end, play the game to...

    I'm not even into game development, but could listen to Carmack for hours. Hearing the pioneer of my teen gaming years muse about the adolescence of 3D engines is strangely captivating.

    'Grats to Soup.



    I think WR could have been okay if used in the safelane tri to secure kills, but any guaranteed stunner would've been a good replacement. SD can have synergy with Jug, but we...

    Yeah, that mass disconnect was a load of trash. It's the first time it ever happened to me. All similar instances have been either all 10 disconnected or the game was able to be rejoined. It was...

    Despite the fact that I play Dota 2 (which has a pretty immense learning curve), I generally agree. That's why I stopped playing MMOs a few years back. Any game that requires me to rearrange my...

    I've been using Steam since '03 and just realized that making categories was possible. Go figure.

    I usually know what I'm looking for by name, so I just type in the first letter or two to find...

    I enjoyed the humor. 9/10 would queue again.

    I'm sure that disconnect loss was infuriating. Between that bad luck and your post on the dota article, might I suggest a brief hiatus? :)

    I ran into a pretty good companion in a solo queue yesterday. He added me, partied up and we managed to save our second game from disaster. It was one of the best random pairings I've had in a long...

    In-game doesn't count coop bot games as real wins either, though. I probably had over 100 coop bot games before jumping into real matches, and it was not showing them under my total games or wins on...

    Is Dotabuff more accurate when you have a sub? I ask because it's missing 30-40 wins and shows my win rate as ~45.5%. The reality is that I am only a handful (8?) of games off 50% when I check my...

    Last's year's wasn't even competitive, but they gave rewards for it. I think they missed some opportunities to make it better this year, and I'm not sure why they excluded last year's web access.
