Was waiting for this to get posted, I didn't even realize it was the challenge right away and thought he was just joking for memes and they were trying to decoy the hide and seek. Which they did, ended up being a 2 for 1. Liquid is next level

This. I was so surprised when the challenge was suddenly completed coz I was laughing my eyes off so much I had tears.

Any inside information out there?

You can friends in high places at valve but if big boss gaben kicks you personally, your career in any valve event is dead.

Same thing happened to Soe, according to 2gd. At least she managed to transition to blizzard by becoming tracer. kappa

Can you elaborate what happened with Soe? I haven't heard any drama between her and valve.

Bring back 2gd :/

5 Years of playing Dota 2 [Personal]

5 Years of playing Dota 2 [Personal]

Aside from being my cake day and actual birthday, it's also my 5th year anniversary of playing Dota 2. What a roller-coaster of MMR because I calibrated at a 2.4k MMR and dropped down to 1.2k, being my lowest point and then climbed to 3.8k while finally settling down to 3.1k. All I can remember of was the amount of rage and frustration that came out of my team mates when I first started playing. A lot of things triggered my teammates and of course myself: bad fights/decisions, missed last hits, courier stealing/feeding, etc. My friends (who were obviously a lot better than me since I started playing) of course would put up with me and play those games with me. Those were the moments where I actually enjoyed the game, especially with moments where we made a comeback victory after a team fight with not buyback, narrowly escaping death and juking the enemy, or smoke ganking and creating space.

There were times I would play Dota 2 every day for hours on end. I have joked with a few friends that it’s a game I am still trying to “beat” (AKA git gud), but I know that will be impossible. The game is complex and evolving and I’m still trying to learn everything. I have survived the Cancer Lancer, Deathball of 6.81, HOHO HAHA, ZIPZAP, Disco Pony, Mask of Madness being on everyone, etc. Anyways, I don’t ever see myself quitting this game at all. Like Magic the Gathering for me, I will take long breaks but will never outright quit. Playing Dota 2 always feels like I’m always playing a fresh game whenever I queue, and I appreciate all the work that OSfrog has done for this game. I had a wonderful weekend watching Midas mode (Fuck Slacks). Anyways, I hope you enjoyed this read. Have a nice day everyone!

And you are part of this trash sub, congratz

Started at dota 2.7 RoC then shifted to 5.84b TFT. Man, it's already past 10 years of experience for me, but it sure doesn't feel already that long.

Ah yes, the guy with the voker flair comes to tell us how trash the sub he reads is.

Classic.

Man, I have been playing since Dota 1 patch 6.72. Good ol' warpatch mod in dota 1.

It's refreshing seeing ads from interesting sponsor like the Kennedy Space Center and not some scam website.

Thanks Moonduck.

Edit: All I'm saying is, it's cool to see ads that I actually enjoy. Like that segment with Slacks. (Fuck Slacks btw)

Edit 2: Hi mom, I'm on front page.

I really enjoyed the between-series focus on Kennedy Space Center this tournament. It legit makes me want to visit the place but I'm unfortunately on the other side of the country.

But is going to the moon cheap as duck though?

If you ever find yourself in Florida, definitely check it out. The Kennedy Space Center is awesome, and they even have the actual Space Shuttle Atlantis displayed in the visitor complex, and it's super cool to be only a few meters away from a piece of space exploration history.

I'm on the other side of the Atlantic and its just giving me more reasons to visit the USA

Hey Moonduck. Now that its been established that Midas Mode is for charity, you should enable donations!

Hey Moonduck. Now that its been established that Midas Mode is for charity, you should enable donations!

everything about this tournament has been excellent and refreshing, even more so that the teams have decided to donate the winnings for charity. I think it would be a really cool thing for us as a community to do.

Obviously you would have to set it up so that its not as obnoxiously loud and big as some of the more popular streamers, but if anyone can do it you can! It's a great opportunity for us to do a lot of good!

Hope you guys see this.

Hey guys!

So this was not some kinda cool P.R. move by moonduck, the team's actually did get together and decide to donate their proceeds to charity about 48 hours ago, which we think is amazing!

Unfortunately, we are pretty maxed out here when it comes to our production and staff making sure that everything runs as smooth as possible. Due to This, it's pretty difficult for us to integrate a system for donations and figure that out at this time. Had I known this would happen a few months ago, we could have made this a integral part of the event.

With this in mind, we will looking at how to make Midas mode 2 more integrated with this! For now please check out the team's announcement and donate directly!

Sorry guys, really wish we had more time to do something official!

Has Moonduck itself designated a charity? If not, I think it'd be incredibly difficult for them to enable donations in a meaningful way as it stands unless they literally set up eight PayPal accounts or had a way to financially sort them. The sentiment is great though!

For now, just donate directly to the orgs! On the original Reddit announcement, each of the links to the charities seems to direct you to the donation pages. So just go for it and share it with the teams and Moonduck (Twitter, Reddit, whatever), I'm sure they'd love to see it!

(And not just to get an obnoxious plug, but literally two minutes ago I published an article that has donation links AND the orgs' missions, if that helps you decide.)

P.S. If you're an American adult and you donate to charity through another company like Moonduck (or Humble, actually) you may not be able to make it tax-deductible, since it ends up donated on the company's behalf, so also keep that in mind when you seek out donations methods like that.

It would be better to do it straight into paypal, do not let twitch take part of the money

Dota chat is still gold

Dota chat is still gold

He is a fucking troll i don´t care if people ignores him at the school. He ruined me so many games in the 0-1k mmr bracket. Valve should permaban this kind of players.

https://www.reddit.com/sub/DotA2/comments/6ouz2s/hello_i_am_techie/

I've actually had the opportunity of talking with this guy on several occasions since he's in the same local chat after log in, and his attitude towards the game and life in general is depressing. Last time he was talking about how he didn't want to have a job, or go anywhere, just lives with his parents and thinks he's doing good by reducing his carbon footprint by not interacting with the outside world at all. Doesn't want to pursue a career or anything at all, just stay inside and play Dota all day. Bless your heart techie, hope you get the mental help or motivation you need to improve your life

21,252 hrs on record

pretty easy to achieve if you just leave dota idle at the main menu
