Cant wait for this, i used to dota 24/7 like 5 years ago. although when i tried playing again recently i was pretty dissapoint with the changes.
i know they said dota 2 is going to start off as an exact replica and continue through patches, but im still hoping its going to be more like old dota from like 5 years ago where it wasn't so noob-friendly


also @Bloodcount's old post, LOLOLOLOLOL. Halo is bigger than CoD in the competitive scene, and im pretty sure 1 million dollars can break anything.... Thats 250k per person, even more than the currently highest paying sc2 tournies and starcraft is without a doubt the largest e-sport on the market.

Maybe we can see a return of x6 and Team Pandemic with the release of this, those were always my 2 favourite teams till they went bankrupt/disbanded.

Also, does anyone know where i can stream the dota2 tourny???

I feel like some of these teams are going into this tournament without a single ounce of thought. First pick Weaver? Seriously!?

Alright so, only one thing I need to say about DotA 2.

DotA 2 is better than HoN in a bad way, copying DotA. Think about that.

Yeah but they get to call themselves DotA 2.

Ha, looking at some of the matches, like Scythe vs GGnet, I feel sorry for some teams. Some of them fail so miserably.

But it looks pretty cool. The graphics are like a combination of HoN and LoL in my opinion. Seems fun. Too bad it isn't free.

Once again, it seems Anti-Mage is overpowered, ha. One thing I don't like though is that there's no big explosion and fireworks at end, 3:

*cough*League of Legends*cough*.

Seriously, they're kinda behind on the dotawagon
LoL isnt that good. Eul and Guinsoo may have been the original creators of dota but icefrog is the one who made it what it is. Dota is probably the most balanced game i have ever played after blizz games. And considering he is technically the guy who made dota big enough for there to be a dota bandwagon and dotaclones to be made, i dont see how anybody can make that statement.

i cant watch the games though... poopy inet and laptop cant hold out. i get home tomorrow though so im going to watch all the finals and semis and losers things in HD :D

i seriously doubt halo is bigger than cod, why? because i play cod competitively and i know in the PC community that cod is probably the most competitive fps game today.

CS:S is dying out a lil but still has faithful watchers. Not sure if PC CoD surpassed it.

well i play Cod4 and 2 competitively and like starcraft my team gets invited into invitational leagues with prize money. However if you have ever seen people with "montages" on youtube they are not what the competitive gameplay will look like, we use mods for the game which basically strips most of the environmental effects, perks and such. You will have to learn the spots to land your grenades precisely and know where to wall bang which leads to knowing how to get around places without getting killed nades or wallbang. But on the really high level of gameplay its all about the reaction, being smarter than your opponent and being able to "clutch".

But back on topic, the dota 2 tournament was held at gamescon right? who won :O

Na'vi won, very easily too. I felt like most the teams played like shit, but perhaps that is because of the different engine/graphics.

So, anyone else in this?

Got my first game and victory today, woo.

Strange interface. At least the design. Will take some getting used to.

    Hmm, about the Headline News, I noticed threads are being moved into the subforum (Health News, Environmental News, etc.). When that happens, the TH Forum Home page loses the articles, and instead would show old articles posted 1 or 2 weeks ago.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What do we do with the Home page?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I added those forums to the filter for that widget.

    Oh nice. They're back. Thanks.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Now I think it makes more sense for me to put news in their own subforums, without worry.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Awesome Ghan thanks! I was purposely not moving the first 15 news articles in Headline news to the different subforums but I guess I don't have to do that now?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Question: Is there a way to remove thread redirects? It creates a copy of the moved thread and takes up space, and I am leaning towards wanting to remove them in the Headline News. But if they have an expiration date, I guess I'm fine with it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    If you move a thread please leave a permanent redirect. You can delete any redirects after 6 months. The redirects are left to help Search Engines find the moved content.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    What if you move the permanent redirect, not the thread?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I think that works but I have not messed with it. You can delete redirects though if you have to that will not delete the original thread
  • The Helper The Helper:
    if a redirect ends up in the same forum as the post it goes to though I think the redirect drops or fails or something but they are not bugged out and when you are working on an indirect the original post is safe.

    I found out you can't delete nor hide redirect links to existing threads. It will just stay there. I have no choice now but to start moving thread redirects to News Archive.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is not the way that it works for me I can delete redirects you just have to hit refresh sometimes big deletes will take a while as long as moves\
  • The Helper The Helper:
    You don't have to do that you can just leave stuff there in headline news for up to a year it was already down to like 8 months there is no rush.
