    like a thing in DOTA

    memorizing the camp spawn times

    dragging them out just at the right time to stack them for xp later

    that is just one example of the minutia of skill needed in that game oh god

    That actually is pretty easy and mostly eye balling. Pulling through to the second camp takes skill.

    Mostly it is just practice though.

    All neutral camps spawn every minute on the minute if there is no camp there, no one looking at the camp(in sightline be it player or ward). Every camp is like this but Rosh.

    Pulling to the mobs is something you eyeball.

    Hardest part is stacking. Should be at about the 56 second mark you pull and drag the mobs away form the camp so it spawns again. That is hard.

    No the real crazy stuff in dota is the spell interaction and items.

    Of course, HotS might end up splitting the difference in an odd way. Take away enough MOBA elements from it and why not just make a team based arena fighter? Will the MOBA elements they have left add something or just feel vestigial and tacked on? Would they have been better off making a pure player on player game like Bloodline Champions?

    Will be interesting to see.

    they can do a lot through releasing maps.

    no, bullshit, you play LOL you don't do that, you play HOTS you don't have to do this minutia that was originally like a game bug

    I mean it's fine to have it be part of the game but the fact that you have to practice stacking up AI minions is a turnoff for some people!

    I don't know why I love stuff like that so much. it actually limits the enjoyment I can get out of watching esports in general. I can't get into certain games just timewise.

    yet I find that type of shit and the people who care about it just wonderful

    It was a great album. When I accepted the job in Atlanta, I put it on loop along with Speakerboxx and I forget which Ludacris album. Probably Back for the First Time.

    @elki I'm fully back in the groove of podcasting in the car, what are you enjoying right now?

    I'm knee deep in earwolf of course but sort of lost beyond that. I have radiolab, twit related shows (have rarely listened but I like leo laporte), the basic smodcast stuff... tell me what's good

    it is the same drum patterns from southern hip hop instrumentals going back to the 90s with a light dusting of post-dubstep EDM on the dance side and it is a bunch of coke raps from TI-esque guys over Lex Luger beats on the hip hop side

    seriously though it is old southern 808 hip hop and they gave it a new name

    I was just explaining it don't get angry.

    I mean stacking and shit is for high level play. It is for supports and most folks don't really do it at all. I am not sure I would call it a bug either. It is how the War3 engine worked and the lanes and jungle are designed so you can do it. They mess with camp spawns to change how good or bad it is for folks.

    LoL and DoTA are from the same pedigree but they are not the same game. They are comparable but have very very different design philosophies and approaches. They both have really good parts and bad parts. You play the one that fits you most.

    Both are fine and really it is personal preference on which you like.

    I tried to find a PAX panel that I would enjoy/wouldn't be too crowded:

    My wife loves those Gordon Ramsey style Yell-at-a-small-business-owner-that-sucks-at-running-a-small-business shows, so looking at the bars represented, she will probably enjoy this.

    SIG trap is a genre based on southern hip hop (mostly early 2000s style)

    lots of snare rolls, quick hi hats, and 808s, typically about 140 bpm

    one well known example is the harlem shake

    some random others:
