The Boston Major teams:






DC tops my list of likable teams as well. EG's high up there too. I like NP just because of Envy and Aui, and Ad Finem greek stack finally qualified for a Major. With these teams the event looks promising

Meanwhile Secret and Liquid are still struggling.

EDIT:
I haven't enjoyed The Summit 6 as much as the ones before it. Not entirely sure of the reason for that. Maybe because VP cruised through it without facing any significant competition? I don't know, but it just wasn't that exciting.

EDIT:
Dota 3?
Seems that the next patch will be a major one, reddit's all over this. One comment explaining the situation:
Quote:
The next patch is very likely going to be big and contain (not only) huge balance changes (even compared to other dota patches), so people are wondering if we go to 7.0 right away, instead of 6.89 (or dota 3, but that sounds way too far fetched). The 'proof' of this theory is that the test server has been getitng updated very frequently for a very long time now, that means a ton of stuff is being tested, way more than before previous patches. Also, Aui2k said in an interview that he heard from some devs that "the new patch is going to completely shake up the game". And there's a new hero coming, too. And 6.88 has been the longest serving patch I think we've ever had in DotA since IceFrog took over. It should be fun.


EDIT:
The Major is upon us boys! Place your bets for the main event! https://www.twitch.tv/dotamajor

Any idea when that patch is coming Stevie? Sounds like the kind of thing I need to get back into the game.

Edit: lol...maybe I should click links first

Lol, I bumped into this video, showing Storm Spirit's Pro Gameplay, back in 2007. I was looking for some information on how SS was, because I just could remember 2-3 skills, and I recalled he was a very simple and blunt hero, right clicker. Then I saw this video: pro gameplay ...

@GG

The date was confirmed by Valve. 7 days from now, just after the end of this Major.

Speaking of which, I managed to place 2 player cards who DIDN'T play in those days ... figures. My MMR goes beyond my playstyle, it seems. GG Nab lulz.

I'm absolutely in snowing tears at these videos with team activities done by Slacks. Just saw Ad Finem's earlier and they cracked me up so hard I was laughing the whole time Even though it goes against my prediction, I'd be happy if they won against Newbee.

AF winning the third game against OG was simply ... overwhelming. The game was something beautiful to watch, it wasn't about robotic metas or rivalry to the blood: it was simply put awesome doto.

Yeah less than 1 hour now. That game 3 was superb. It was all that it should have been the whole finals. After that game, I was sure no other game was to be like that, still I was satisfied. ^^

I was on the edge of my seat, watching streams, having opened countdown tabs of my own, and... Dota2.com crashed.

NotLikeThis.

EDIT:
Holy snow, if this thing's real, we might see ultimates at level 6 / 12 / 18, a talent system (we LoL now?), a backpack system where heroes can get 3 more items although inactive until switched, Roshan location moved again, and who knows what else, but it sounds insane.

Guys, I'm not gonna lie here, I think the game's absolutely insane now. Just reading the hero changes and talents makes me excited for some OSfrog ridiculousness. Some adjustments are to be expected for sure, but I'll probably enjoy the new patch even after everything found its "balance".

Yeah, I think games might be faster too (in the realms of my humble bracket).

Now, just for speculation, Monkey King would be nice for which lane?

- Judging from his ability descriptions in Dota 2 Wiki, he's got a nice nuking ability, that stuns and crits based on his attack (also true strike lol). It has 25 s cd.

- The other ability, he can perch on a tree. He stays far from the ground, so melee cannot target him. He cannot perch when he is being damaged by heroes, the ability goes to CD. If his tree is destroyed, he'll fall and be stunned by 4 s. From his perched position, he can channel an ability on an AoE for damage and slow.

- He has a passive one that keeps charging on a same target (something like Troll) and when it reaches maximum number, it'll deliver bonus damage and life steal.

- He can turn into something, object for example, depending on his whereabouts. If he is next to a tree, he'll turn into another tree. I'm not sure how it will look like in mini-map.

- And then, as a 5th ability it seems, his ultimate creates an area with many soldiers, still in place. They'll attack anyone that gets nearby them and they'll be summoned as long as MK stays in that area for the duration. They all have bonus damage, of course. lol I don't know if the soldiers can be targeted.

He looks like he can do just fine on safe and off lanes, or even mid lane. Doesn't look good for jungling. Annoying with dagger. Potential starter. Potential chaser. Potential team fighter. Potential escaping methods, even using his ulti to avoid direct chase, whether enemy needs to avoid bumping into his soldiers while he keeps going around them.

Well, it'll be fun.

Changes look promising. Hopefully the games will be shorter and the leveling up will be faster so you can enjoy those level 25 bonuses. The illusions giving bounty is pretty huge and I like the backpack mechanic.

Monkey king sounds cool and I'm happy to see his ult being a unique way to incorporate illusions. New models were much needed, except enigma? That one suprised me. Hope troll gets a model upgrade one day, he looks terrible.

Looking forward to the update. I'll be free whenever on Tuesday if anyone wants to play
