    Lol, I see a lot of new Mercs get juked by me when I'm not even trying to and then proceed to overshoot into Gryffon range. There needs to be a Smite ult blooper reel. Best thing vs Merc, hide behind terrain because he can't phase through the environment. Same idea for Neith ult but more about vision than dodging something physical.

    Speaking of sweet blocks, I managed to wall stop a fleeing Nu Wa with Loki's decoy and she was face hugging it for at least 1 second. I didn't even have to corner it with anything, I don't think I'll ever be able to do it again...

    I managed to run across the entire Arena to the enemy base thanks to lag, was actually quite funny.

    Did anyone see the tournament today? COG is so so strong! The reason they are so strong is because their level of aggression is unparalleled. Their team coordination is also incredible. You never see them one man short in a team fight, that's why they win so often. In most team fights you will see atleast one person missing or approaching the team fight, but COG always sticks together tightly knit. They are truely incredible to watch.

    I remember when Denial used to be like them and won every single weekend. Unfortunately their team has been doing worse ever since some players left and were replaced(I think 2?). One weekend Denial won a 3v5! Even after 2 people D/Ced early in the match.

    Pretty sure the tournaments have offered a cash prize (at least in the thousands afaik) for at least a year now. There's also a tournament coming up (I believe in March on release) with a prize of at least 150k, since they released a Poseidon skin and put some/all (not sure) of the proceeds from it towards the prize pool.

    If you aren't good enough for that but don't suck and have an attractive personality, I'm sure you could scrape by streaming but that's iffy/could take some elbow grease.

    The last DOTA 2 international championship had a 2,874,380 dollar prize pool which was all collected by people purchasing the tournament compendiums alone! o-o

    DOTA 2 has a wider following because the franchise's roots can be traced to the origins of the moba genre. It has been around for a long time.

    Also remember, Poolsiden skin adds $5 per purchase, it has only been around for a week during which time it has raised 50k.

    Last I saw, the pot was almost up to 200k and still climbing. Thats a pretty damn respectable amount for a young game still in beta.

    All new gods are "things" because people don't know how to counter them yet.

    Did the 5th player ever load in or UI glitch? Not that it matters ultimately, she's definitely a thing. (Maybe even a thang?)

    I don't know why, but when I see her I almost feel like it's a collective secret boner compiled of everyone's fantasy of Freya tossing magic to the wind and completely embracing the sword. (NOT A BAD THING)

    I really upset with the fact that they are adding more and more sustain and damage immunity to the game. Pretty soon this game will become a repeat of GW2 where HP bar doesn't mean anything. Geb's shield, Chang'es immunity dance, now another aegis that heals and reflects on a low CD.

    Nemesis' shield has such a laughably short duration that it should only be a problem if you let it be and chang'e can get away with her dance because most of her damage is loaded into a single skill until she has the cdr to ult more frequently. Theyre both pretty easy to bait out as well.

    That Geb shield though...I'd shed no tears if that was deleted. There is zero skill or counter-play involved with that stupid thing.

    One insta-lock Nemesis on my team that goes 1/13. One insta-lock Nemesis on the enemy team that goes 15/0.

    I think I broke my SURRENDER button.

    Yeah, I heard Bart in the stream refer to it as kind of a "counter" ability.

    I don't really mind all of these things, seeing as they regularly add copious amounts of hair-pulling CC/burst as well. Both elements at once really give flexibility to the skill shot aspect. It gets kind of stupid in solo Q when you get some duds though seeing as it is a team based game.

    Anyway, a plant has my brain and I've been typing this for an undetermined amount of time and I haven't even played with the patch yet. I really should go do that now. :P

    I have exactly the opposite opinion. Chang'e and Nemesis's shields are more problematic for me because they are like moving Aegis. Geb's shield on the other hand can be blown up if the person finds himself in a bad position.

    Nemesis's shield may be 1 second but 1 second is an incredible long time in this game. The worst part is when a Nemesis is CCed and and in the middle of 3 of your team members you know that the moment she gets out of CC she will pop her shield and double dash to safety with relative impunity. The same is the case with Chang'e. Chang'es Crescent moon dance can do a respectable amount of damage and is practically impossible to juke.

    If shes cc'd in the middle of 3 of you teammates and lives to shield, your team is doing it wrong. Plain and simple. Unless shes building full tank of course, but she shouldnt even be a problem if thats the case.

    I think they always make new gods really powerful at first and later nerf so that players get the motivation to try to learn to play them and become familiar with the mechanics.

    Many of the underused gods have a lot of dormant potential. Just as an example, recently we have been seeing COG, the top team in NA, use Ra a lot despite the fact that he is not a favored god. They have been using him to great effect with his team healing potential.

    Vamana wasn't played competitively for many many months until one team (I think Dignitas?) first showed that he could be built as an assassin and become a hard carry endgame with his ult. Before that everyone played him as a tank.

    Thanatos is rarely used in Tournaments yet Shing played him so effectively today that COG was forced to ban him.

    If anyone missed today's tournament COG was defeated by SNIPE in the second final game, that was the third match COG ever lost in the entire tournament series. They still won the first and third games so they won today's tournament (yet again...).

    SNIPE is a really good team imo, the only bottleneck on thier team is Incontenentia who is a very sub-par player as he has shown in today's tournament. Also Allied is not as good of an ADC as Baracuda.
