    [–] My last game of Dota before this one was in 2015. I was being yelled at from Minute 3 on. What the? AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    Bud... don't queue for ranked if you've been out of practice a long time. At least run some unranked games to get back in the groove of the game before you queue for ranked. You essentially were inconsiderate toward your teammates by queuing so out of practice and they lost mmr because of you. Be a little more considerate of when it's appropriate to start playing ranked and this won't have to happen to you again.

    [–] In your opinion what are the greatest Dota 2 matches of all time? AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    Yeah I'd put that series just below OG in the finals against LGD. Those are the top 2 series I'd recommend watching above all others.

    [–] Things escalated quickly for Topson. AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    I saw him interviewed at least 3 times this year. You can probably find vids of it on twitch or YouTube. Though it's still rare to hear much about him from those so you're right: we could use more of those.

    [–] Silly question. Can't we buy battle pass levels anymore? AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    Looks like you missed the 24 last notice tweet. The tournament ends and so does the battle pass. You still have 2 weeks edit to earn as many levels as you can through games, morokai, etc., but you cannot buy them anymore.

    [–] I was wondering if anyone sells a 50 lvl battlepass boost? I am level 955 and would like to reach 100p AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    Those 50 level boosts from the Immortal III aren't tradable, marketable, or giftable. It's not physically possible to get one unless you inbox it yourself. If somebody bought levels and held unto them, I suppose you could do it, but I doubt there are many of those floating around anymore at this late stage of the game.

    [–] Fly should be on a suicide watch AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    I almost wonder if he's thinking of leaving the scene for good

    [–] Must've been some kebab. AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in trashy

    But did she ever get a kebab?

    [–] Sucks you cant buy levels anymore. AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    The whole point of the level sales is to add to the prize pool. Once the tournament is over they aren't going to keep adding to the pool, that would be silly.

    [–] Where is the roster shuffle thread? AlexandersWonder 4 points ago in DotA2

    OG is retiring. Am I doing this right?

    [–] Meanwhile, this guy proceeded to do this from the very start of the game AlexandersWonder 2 points ago in DotA2

    He bought the courier and the wards and xp tomes and never used any of them, just hoarded them, by the looks of it. Then he used meld in lane to continue collecting xp so he wouldn't get an abandon and spent the whole game getting his kicks off of fucking his team over

    [–] Congratulations to the Worst crowd ever in TI history. Some history being made today. AlexandersWonder -7 points ago in DotA2

    I get that, but that doesn't mean the claim that the stadium was only half full is an accurate one. I'm not saying we should just pretend all is cool, just that criticism is best directed at something that is actually true.

    [–] Despite It All, Still A Great Run AlexandersWonder 4 points ago in DotA2

    Yeah that was my other thought. I'm not sure the Chinese would understand him refusing their victory Champagne, and certainly not if they knew the reason for it.

    [–] Congratulations to the Worst crowd ever in TI history. Some history being made today. AlexandersWonder -6 points ago in DotA2

    I just don't see any point in getting upset about something that isn't even true. I'm no fan of China and I even said they are worthy of criticism for being a poor audience. But the claim that the stadium was half empty simply isn't true. Criticism where it's actually due is more productive when you avoid inaccurate statements.

    [–] When AlexandersWonder 5 points ago in DotA2

    What is this, his 20th need in a row?

    [–] TI Grand Final btw AlexandersWonder 2 points ago in DotA2

    Ya it's not even that, it's that those seats at the bottom are terrible for watching these games because you have to look almost straight up to see the screen.

    [–] Congratulations to the Worst crowd ever in TI history. Some history being made today. AlexandersWonder -23 points ago in DotA2

    No it wasn't, this is mostly misinformed outrage. Take a look for yourself. I won't say the crowd was the most wholesome that TI has ever had, but I believe people are most probably making out to be something worse than reality. If we're going to criticize China, which they're probably deserving of, then we should at least be fair and accurate with our criticisms.

    [–] Despite It All, Still A Great Run AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    It must suck worse to lose, but at least they didn't have to sit through that Chinese interview after the game and be forced to repeat the Champagne incident of TI7. That would have been even harder to watch than last time. Instead of 1 champagne bottle it would be 5.

    [–] Despite It All, Still A Great Run AlexandersWonder 127 points ago in DotA2

    Instead of just handshakes the teams hugged each other and were so kind to each other in that moment. For me, that was the very best moment of TI.

    [–] Heard rumours that Immortal Treasure I 2017 Slark Immortal was bugged, Bought & Opened 113x Treasure and Never Got the Slark! AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    But they never shared the actual odds for that treasure so how is it "bugged," if you don't even know when you're supposed to get the thing? Seems like you didn't really think this through man, sorry.

    [–] Hi Valve, can we please keep Chat Wheel of the casters even when compendium/battle pass expires? AlexandersWonder 1 points ago in DotA2

    They are though. They're peddling those voice lines next year, and the basic sound effects on Dota plus. They will save the TI chat lines for next TI.
