    5 new teams were announced for TI3!

    Na'vi
    Virtus.Pro
    Dignitas(USA USA USA USA)
    Zenith
    DK.

    2 more teams to be announced this week and then they will announce the qualifiers. My guess is gonna go with LGD.int and possibly QPAD Red Pandas though at this point, it could be anyone.

    Looking forward to the qualifiers!

    Just finishing up the Skywrath mage article, future hero coverage should be done sooner to help people when they need it the most seeing as how school is finished.

    Evil Geniuses to disband once they get taken out of the qualifiers.

    MUFC got invited. I'm kinda happy for them. WinteR is a great captain.

    The Skywrath article should be featured tomorrow, I will update the OP with a link. I found him very fun to play but definitely not a hero I could image being picked in competitive matches. However, who knows... We never expected to see Nyx Assassin in the past and now he's everywhere.

    I like watching streams where he is the caster/co-caster too. Just by listening on how he commentate a game, i could say that he is really a good player

    Skywrath Mage is Mr.Glasscannon himself. And he's also useless once BKBs come online.

    He will be picked for sure, but not as a common pick. Not now anywya.

    Also, syndereN to play under the mouz. banner. Feels good to see him back on support role.

    Wait, Skywrath is already enabled in Captain's Mode? Must of forgot reading that change. That's interesting, going to see if I can find a VOD.

    Also, the OnRPG tournament is still on the table. Not sure about prizes but as of now at least a coloured name + user title is a given. I could add something else like 5 keys but it won't be too big, it's just a fun tournament.

    He'S definitely really strong but succeptible to ganks from sidelanes, no escape mechanism and no way to flash farm so he's reliable on not dying and getting solo EXP/farm for some time.

    I'm sad to not Next.Kz in there even though they sort of disapeared for a while, they were always pretty good.

    EternalEnvy was turbo assravaged at the fact that Kaipi did not get invited to the qualifiers and acted like a mad baby about it then he got told by Tobi and some other community members that he should man the fvck up about it or quit whining like a *****.

    As far as Asians quaifiers go, I'm okay with them. I want to see VG win to see ZSMJ on stage.

    This was a poll on TeamLiquid. Honestly, I wasn't surprised to see EG not being invited. My vote would be None.



    Also, let's get some more people in the Steam group. It will be used for the upcoming OnRPG tournament.

    Please take the time to answer this one question poll, would like to see how much interest there is before I begin planning. It will be sometime in June, we will try and decide on a time/date appropriate for all.

    I watched KP play against mouz this morning. EternalEnnvy showing flashy drafts and also showing is ability to get stomped into oblivion. It was painful to watch.

    Share your predictions. Here are mine in the Compendium:


    Still debating about qualifier winners. Didn't get to watch much Dota for the past months due to school so will have to look into it.

    Latest patch:

    Added Solo Matchmaking option. This is an experimental feature that will match you with players who also queued without being in a party. This is the first step in a series aimed at improving the matchmaking system.

    COMMUNITY
    - Reduced the number of negative reports per week to 2 as part of our ongoing efforts to improve and tune the reporting and ban systems.

    GAMEPLAY
    - Elder Titan: Fixed Legacy Keys
    - Drow Ranger: Fixed Frost Arrows slowing Spirit Bear for the full creep duration
    - Tusk: Fixed Walrus Punch having 1 less second of slow than intended.
    - Tusk: Fixed Armlet sometimes causing Walrus Punch to disappear after using Snowball.

    PERFORMANCE
    - Reduced memory usage on systems with 2GB of RAM or less
    Solo queue options seems nice, maybe now there won't be as much matching against stacks.

    Also, prize pool passed 1.7M now. I got the battle boost bonus, 125% exp for 96 more days.

    Prize pool is getting quite high. The western qualifiers begin tomorrow, follow the following thread to keep up with the event. Now I finally have a reason to wake up earlier again.
