Why, so you can bask in his incoherent ramblings? Man is a tool. Karen is awesome. She has insightful things to say, is thoughtful, and is genuinely interested in the world. Adam is an obnoxious man child. If I wanted to listen to an obnoxious man child, I'd record the bullshit I say everyday, and play it back.

Good luck to Karen. I have no doubt she'll land on her feet.

I know I wrote this somewhere else but I know someone that just learned of the Chuck Norris meme this summer. The director of the EFIT* team was constantly making Chuck Norris jokes for a good solid 3 days at work (telling them to an equally ignorant co-worker) after learning about the meme when his daughter sent him an email about it. Needless to say myself and the other engineering students there on co-op would roll our eyes any time we heard one coming from near his desk nearby. Although I will note both of the men in question are just around the corner of 60.

So maybe it's found some kind of resurgance with older folks?

*Engineering Fix It Now, basically a small team of engineers at my workplace this summer, which recieved urgent problems and implement solutions very quickly bypassing the usual more lengthy routes and approval processes in favour of expiditing the solution for review.

Hmm, should be interesting to hear what Ryan has to say on Dota 2, seeing as it's just a carbon copy of Dota and Ryan is a big LoL player, which LoL is similar to Dota but at the same time noticably different than Dota. (particularly for experienced players) Especially in pace, LoL is much faster, twitch and accessible where comparitavely Dota is more complex, strategic and slower. It's part of the reason I never got too much into LoL, the little things just felt too odd to me in a game that was similar to Dota after having played Dota for many years before stopping for an extended period.


Also correction Ryan, Valve never bought the rights as IceFrog didn't own the rights. Valve just bought the most recent caretaker of Dota, not the rights. Also I'd hardly call it a sequel, more like a texture and graphical model pack. From all of the video that has been shown of it and feedback on the forums it's the same game just with a facelift.

Actually it was more like 3 dudes, two dudes went to League of Legends and the other guy fell of the face of the internet seemingly.

Also Master Higgins is right, the community for Dota and all it's clones is terrrrrrrrrrrrrrible especially to new players as new players tend to not be good at the game. I will say from experience that many new players don't help themselves when it's clear that they don't know what they are doing and you try to give them some pointers and they tell you to fuck off. Although from what I undertand HoN is the worst in terms of the vitriol and intolerance in the community that plays it.


Karen, if they tried to charge anything for it why would people playing Dota leave Dota for a game that is the same thing but now charges for content that is totally free in Dota? It makes no sense unless Valve is just aiming for Valve fans.

I have a number of IRL friends who have played dota and its clones (like hon and lol) and I've asked them all if I could play with them and they refused, and I asked them if they could teach me or give me pointers to catch up and they're either like "don't even bother" or "fuck off."

Yep, sounds like Dota. Basically if you didn't start playing it way back when it was beginning to blow up on WC3 around 2004 and continued to for the many years since or you aren't willing to learn by the school of hard knocks than you can eat shit.

If they move to Dota 2, they'll be the same way regardless of these new filtering options to ignore people like that.

Dota is relentless and so are the people that play it, either suck it up or go play something else is kind of the attitude. It makes me real curious of if the new players Valve attracts due to Valve's reputation/fanboys will stick with it or just give up in frustration after being pounded into the ground over and over again and with their teamates actively insulting them or telling them to leave/stop playing. This is assuming that Dota players move to Dota 2.

It's actually part of the reason why I didn't get back into it after not playing WC3 for about a year and a half because I was just too busy for anything besides handheld games I can take with me. When I went back I had become somewhat rusty and while I could still hold my own and be fairly average most of the time I would sometimes just make a couple dumb mistakes causing two or three stupid deaths and than have my whole team calling me out for sucking so much and since most of my clan had moved on from WC3/TFT and my couple IRL friends that played it with me as well I just said fuck this and stopped playing it regularly once again.

I go back every couple months to play a game or two (usually meaning I have to download the new map) but nothing like back like I was before.

I'm perplexed what region of England Adam was trying to emulate at the end there. Granted I don't know all the different kinds of accents of England, Scotland or Ireland but it sounded kind of like a drunk Brummie accent, maybe.

I imagine the gamepro folks are sick of being reminded they were laid off but I'll just jump in to say I hope you all land on your feet

Anyone know what Karen's kickstarter is that she was tweeting about?
