Seems like the santa hat on roshan is back :D
PLS Don't touch AD, you already made it great after patch. Let it be pls. No need to make it a pleb mode...
Archon is Eul's.
Legend is BKB. - Look at the collars.
and voice chat wheel (shhh just go with it)
Insider information tells me that you are talking out of your ass.
Alright since people continue to get confused about this, let's explain the invites.
They're inviting 9 teams, 6 of which are reserved for each region, and then three additional ones based off of performance. EG is the top team in NA, so if any team from NA is going to be invited, it's EG.
Literally half a minute of research and a wee bit of thinking would lead you to this conclusion.
It's in genting and midone is Malaysian. Still 3 more invites left so secret should get invited unless they refuse to participate
his father passed away one or two days before perfect world master
Parents raise you and support you and love you unconditionally; and all they wish is your happiness and success.
Once you achieve those things, you know you made them proud even if they aren't around to watch anymore. Such a meaningful win for midone and co, well played!
Talk about motivation.
Midone is chinese and we chinese believe that whoever passed away did not leave the world but stay somewhere around the world and watching who they love/care.
Congratulations to the Winners of ROG DreamLeague Major!
Team Secret take the series 3-0 against Team Liquid!
Congratulations to Ace, MidOne, Fata, Yapzor and Puppey!
Puppey has become the 9th person to win a second Major, and the third TI Winner to win two Majors.
FATA WON A MAJOR
THE CURSE IS OVER
Fata and Mek
Fata and phase boots, name a more iconic duo
FATA was the MVP of this tournament. What a guy.
It's in the left side if you're a player in the game. But for spectating, it really needs to be moved to the side.
EDIT : https://imgur.com/a/wRln8 for people who said it's not there.
Pauses too. Denies too. Basically everything that was in the killfeed and was moved into the chat. Makes no fucking sense
Also please stop limiting the chat length valve. I cant scroll up to my roshan timings
Tower denies aren't tho, which is weird since hero denies are.
If you have anyone muted, you can't see if they disconnect or abandon, it's clearly a bit of an oversight on valve's part
Not using "one pirate boi"
Medals are just an icon DendiFace
One pirate boi against 5 yonkou PogChamp
Kunkka like to play against lone druid , youll always have a target to use tidebringer
Attacker is probably having an orgasm somewhere, and yes i am as well.
He was deleting people every 4 seconds after the courier arrived.
ikr nothing better than a frontliner target than can tank 2k crits and won't die.. while the units at the back eat pure damage 2k crits
"We're at the top, but only half-way there... think about it." -Doc
Poor Fogged... granted he's not tall, but all those giant co-workers of his make him look like a freaking midget
Jeremy Lin PogChamp
what 5,8 in cm? silly american metrics
I'm upvoting because doc, but the order is wrong. it is Violence, Speed, Momentum, and I only say this so he doesn't show up at your front door with his 6'8'' gaming powerhouse body and his 37'' vertical leap, and just kill you right then and there because he is a ruthless killer.
Speed, Momentum, Violence
And try to avoid getting someone who looks at you like Slacks looks at the Doctor.
You saved a life today
Nahaz with the pistol fingers
Zoop 👉😎👉 Zoop
Because Fogged needed more giants next to him.
Anyone else finding it rude?
Nahaz being confused and out of the loop? Never.
