    Yann, fight club is an excellent movie, and I'll fight you for that. As long as it isn't taken too seriously that is, the "I should start a fight club" crowd is pretty stupid!

    And IEM taking LoL over Quake is quite sad, they could at least have taken the good dota clone, HoN. Not the one that removes one of the most important mechanics for that kind of game.

    I have a feeling that DotA is still the most balanced game in the genre. The only problem I have with it is a lack of MM and having to deal with the Australian DotA community.
    Oh and people just leaving all the time, bitching about lag. All that shit.

    8 other people are not lagging, it is on your end, fuck you.

    QL was always in a precarious position with big tournaments, it's never had great viewership.

    this is probably a snotty attitude but I can't get into a game where I have to rely on 4 other players

    I could watch it though, I'll probably give it a try next tourney. lots of characters to learn though.

    That and they constantly add new champions, and patch the game at least monthly. Imagine if blizzard added a new units every other week, but you had to buy it and they nerfed it two weeks later. One large patch a month at least that changes game balance as well. People would be furious, not sure why LoL players put up with it, not like there isn't a lack of options.

    Anyways enough about LoL, I am just glad blizzard does such a good job with this game.

    It's fun.

    Not fun when you take it seriously, though.

    Cause at least ~30% of the time, yeah, the game gets thrown before it begins by one of your 4 teammates.

    e: And I don't mean to imply it's a skill-less game or whatever, still comes largely down to your map awareness, strength of your build, micro, how well you understand the meta game and motivate your team to play towards it...

    No Vari you're not alone, I cannot play pub DotA.
    I played in a clan back when you could buy aegis of the immortal, and it gave you 3 revives.
    Also when you could use blink dagger regardless of having been hit.

    I was actually good back then, Tiny for lyfe. Toss is pretty much one of the best skills ever.

    I only had like, 2 good clanmates though, it was sad.

    Now where did that little munchkin go. I havent promoted a bloodbath before, I was sooo looking forward to it.

    Point of order question. If the WFC split his two (Bo3) series against me, do we have to have a Thunderdome match to settle it?

    The moral of the story is roaches are fun and should be 1supply 2 armour again. But keep their 4 range.

    So that roaches can be best at everything always.

    But I suppose that would throw the 2s balance off like reapers when combined with guardian shield.

    roach rushes still are scary, I'm surprised I don't see them more.

    Okay, after, like...I can't even remember how many months of not playing, I want to try and start laddering again. Maybe get myself out of bronze finally.

    Given all the recent changes to Protoss and the techniques people have learned, what's a good opening for me to just do over and over until my macro actually becomes decent enough for me to start worrying about the complexities of this game?
