    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...

    Oddly enough, I've been winning more again since avoiding larger groups. It seems to work better for me to solo or queue with one other person. Queues of 3-5 aren't working out so well. Probably...

    Finals aside, I wanted to say that I enjoyed the event as a whole.

    There were a few instances of stream hiccup and robo casters, but all in all, what I saw was a step up in production from last...

    I was actually okay with the matchup due to how both teams had to meet up again after their first clash, but gees. You know it's a lousy grand finals when each game ends in a...

    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.

    Fortnight slump. I'll likely take a dota break after TI4.

    I'm making silly mistakes and games just aren't working out.

    I guess I could see that working.

    Also, it seems the cards for Yao, Wayto, IllidanSTR and some kid from Arrow have a much lower drop rate than the rest of them. I just need Yao now.
