    I'd definitely take that result if it came up. EG seems easy to tilt if you just pick on sumail, but that's just armchair sportsing :P

    EG vs Secret is a hell of a slug match. Just back and forth blows.

    This is like the worst Necro player I've seen. He hasn't landed any of those Scythes.

    I personally do not like Fly and S4 for bailing on a team because they felt they deserved to win and were being held back. Same reason I don't like Arteezy.

    I mean, that's not any different than any other team or player or event sport (be it e or physical / traditional). It's a crap behavior but when everyone is basically doing it...

    That was a nice 10v10 teamfight to close the game for VP. Mass hysteria.

    Icefrog is going to nerf buybacks. I'm almost certain.

    I don't know what they can do about buybacks that doesn't result in mass buybacks at some point in the endgame. They've tried so many possible solutions and none of them seem to stop it

    1) Silence 2) Books must be returned by the last date shown 3) Do not interfere with the nature of causality

    If I was still actively playing dotes instead of just spectating it as a sport, I'd consider using it. But Bastion voice pack is best voice pack, so unsure I'd really change it for more than a day or two.

    edit: I agree with @3clipse re: fly and s4, but will also add that N0tail is one of my fav dota personalities, so that's another reason I want OG to win.

    Close fight in Game 1 of VP Mineski. I think VP will get game 2, but I feel bad for Icex3, cause he seems like a quality guy and deserves a higher finish.

    The farming penalty on buybacks did limit them a bit, but it became super awlward when good buybacks still resulted in a carry being basically unable to make up ground with farming after a buyback brought space

    Hard limit on buybacks? Probably too strict.

    Buyback $$ based on % of net wealth? So it doesn't punish supports too much.

    Both are probably horrible ideas if I put more than 10 secs of thought in to it. I do like the post TI balance patch tho. Seeing what the take aways from the event are.

    I'll be hard pressed to give up my Portal Megakill pack, but this GabeN one feels like it'd be fun to have on for a day or two at least.

    Count me among those who love the silly little bits that get tucked into this thing each year. Even when I'm not playing, I'm good for at least a battlepass for some of the shenanigans and voting and whatnot.

    The buyback cost now is a combination of gane time and level iirc

    I'm sure this isn't an uncommon occurrence for you folks, but last night had a fairly funny juxtaposition of moments. The two teams are fairly evenly matched, slugging it out, things are going fairly fine... then one of our players disconnects like 20 seconds before we take a massive team fight and blow up pretty much everyone.

    We fought on, and actually managed to hold our own fairly well, took team fights here and there, but our lineup wasn't great for split pushing, so really capitalizing on the minute or two of relief wasn't always easy. Ended up losing it, but with a 5th player I think we'd have had a solid shot at wiping them out. Edit: and yes, I know I could've left once it was officially abandoned, but I was on Sniper and having one of my better games. Not flawless by any stretch, but I was harassing the shit out of my lane, making creep kills and denies better than I usually do, it was actually a reasonably solid game, aside from the quitter.

    Also, I didn't realize that the big 250 token team wagers didn't replenish, so maybe I shouldn't have been blowing through those quite so hard... >.>

    I've only given it a cursory search, but does anyone know when everything for TI8 comes to an end? Not the event, that's obvious, I mean when is the last day one can do the cavern crawl, use tips, wager, hit up the under hollow, etc?

    Now that the bug has bitten me, I'm tempted to at least get within reasonable buying range of the new terrain, but if things wrap up Saturday I'm probably only going to have 2 nights or less to work on it. If some of this stuff goes beyond, great, but I'm not expecting it. More like trying to manage my expectations.

    I feel like part of it is still that kills are just worth so little. They could probably put a CD increase on consecutive buy backs the same way they have for mass teleports. Or continue to add high level items that force a choice out of cores. But as long as high ground is still a difficult slog, buybacks will be king.
