    The Korean commentators are back and this time, it's the marathon game.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Sadly, I had Black as my carry for the first two days, so my score was only 712. If I'd had XBOCT instead, I probably would have cleared 900. Oh well -- the rest of my picks and days worked out pretty well. I was just busy and made a bad pick during those early, game-heavy days. That...and mouz bombed more than anticipated.

    I have no idea what, but we're promised an item based on certain preditions/fantasy/etc.

    I don't know why, but I chuckle every time they make text or objects spin in circles.

    I had... lemme check... 497, it would seem. I forgot to add a second carry to the team for the prelims and first days of group stage. And I didn't really do much shifting in the composition anyhow.

    If I remember correctly, I had 560 fantasy points or something ... which earned me the least valuable reward for the fantasy challenge. Now I'm sad


    For those that don't know: therer are four levels (= stars on the box). They grant a random item of common / uncommon / rare / mythical rarity, with an added fantasy challenge tag.

    Catching up on some TI3 games I had not seen... namely the LGD vs Alliance UB Game 1.

    With all due respect to Alliance's world class play, it still irks me that they basically win by split pushing with NP + PL. Sure those heroes exist to be used, and sure anyone else could use the same approach... but it is an Alliance 'special' and ... this is going to sound wrong I know... it feels like punching below the belt. One might argue that whatever works to win is the only thing that matters, but clearly I don't see it quite that way

    Phew, feel better now.

    I'd still wish, that they'd add some form of indication, of which games I've already seen and which are still missing :/

    Also, yeah, people will use anything to their advantage to win. Much like the fountain hooking. I guess it just takes a little time until people figure out effective ways to counter this (or until this gets nerfed).

    The thing is, the enemy (I think its that game) pick quite a wombo line up, split pushing is an effective tool to deal with Wombo's, it was just good drafting from them, and quite the risky strat really with the amount of farm they realistically needed to be able to compete.
