    @violetdeer66 Oh that's super weird, I don't think I've run into that issue but like dota has a lot of jank so the reinstall should fix it lol, and audio jank does happen a lot with like buying items/locking in heroes/like anything with sound in the pre-game screen tho jsyk

    @DullTwig It's only happening in dota so it's not an issue with the computer I don't think

    I dont deal w/ SFV so I cant speak on other things they have planned but regarding internal ads, as long as it's SFV related content and not intrusive I dont see a problem. Dota2 has been doing it for skins and compendiums since forever so I dont know why capcom waited until now

    @KheZzu_ @DOTA2 @IceFrog All their staff moved over to @PlayArtifact to try save it,so Dotas very extensive bug list will just remain as such since theres no proper management and they dont have money to employ more people so.Also no one there knows how to fix bugs in source2 since they just keep coming.

    @bradshoemaker @dannyodwyer I feel like we can give a pass to a game like Dota that is Basically a live service and constantly evolving

    Well, I can say that #Steam works perfectly on #Linux so far. Successfully installed #DOTA2 and tried that out. Going through the tutorial, which has its problems, but glad I am, because the control arrangement isn't what I'm used to.

    @Nerfnow So yeah, it's no DotA, but it seemed to have paid off enough to make it worthwhile. We'll see it if they ever issues an official statement on it

    In other news Dota went okay tonight, Rocket League was okay, and Smash was legit as always. Wanted to stream but something else now isn't working that I'm going to need to try and fix today >_>. Stay tuned for more news on that.

    @DOTA2 umm... RIKI BASE DAMAGE BUFFED BY 3, THIS WILL SURELY MAKE HIM RELEVANT COMPARED TO ALL THE OVERBUFFED HEROES THAT ARE CONSTANTLY GETTING FIXED :) HAHA. MEMEZ! KEK! EKS DEE... I dont think buffing a hero that relies on his passive for damage is relevant, fix his kit.

    @DOTA2 Yo ********, can you fix the ranked match-making. The allocation of players into teams is worst I have ever seen. I've been playing this ******* game for 6 years and nothing changed. Start to fix the ******* RMM system you shittards or make the game "pay to play"!

    Man @DOTA2 is in a rough place right now. Five patches for the patch already & still the game is broken as shit, not to mention a complete hero imbalance. Yeah time for a long #DOTA2 break, have tons of other things I want to play anyway.

    Strings (@SWORD666) reported

    @Purificationone in my opinion , fight fire with fire just make all the champions equally broken that would be a real balance instead of trying to get the same champions on the same Level of power , that is what Dota2 have done basically

    @Loving_Angel77 @Slasher @Cylints i agree with you. one of the underlying problems is the insane negative consequences there are for leaving a game sometimes. like, in some of the more popular games that i love you get perma banned for leaving too many games *cough* LoL *cough* DotA. it is stupid.

    @garbagebcn @DisguisedToast As a player I don't care how the game is watched, because i'm playing it xD. I Dota for example but it's too complex for me so that's why I dont play it. The problem is that a lot of people like me dont want to pay for a game that we may don't like

    This only happens to Dota. PC has no problems, neither is the Internet. This only happens mysteriously on Dota 2 only. And it's really annoying.

    @skippy0330 @TwLandsbytossen @SatisfactoryAF Competition is good. As a consumer I go out of my way to support Valve exclusively. Issue of trust, reliability. ie. branding. Played Half-Life in highschool. Love Dota 2. Steam came out in 2003. Other then Unreal Tournament 2004 I haven't played any Epic games not incl Fornite.

    @LodaBerg i mean this problem is caused by the fact that the playerbase for league is higher than dota more than anything. so need to focus on getting more players in rather than ti imo

    i'd like to hold GDQ responsible to some extent but I can't really because even Valve has had issues with immigration going "lol look at this non-white person trying to come over, denied" when trying to get DOTA2 pros over for the International.

  • GamerKinXell
    GKX (@GamerKinXell) reported

    @DOTA2 The community itself is a problem. Toxicity runs deep in dota, perhaps it's time to take better care of the community than spitting lazy answers. Just in case anyone took it wrongly, I'm not defending kuku nor Valve

    z3r0f4th3r (@N0DaddyTRM) reported

    Introduction of BR is good for the growth of CSGO and won't really impact the competitive aspect too much. This is not the worst move Valve had done for CS. Dota2 is already F2P and cheaters isn't the biggest problem. Every online game will have cheaters despite prices.

    Josh (@de_shortdust) reported

    @szym__ Valve is just chasing after your money at this point. First, you need passes for missions in CSGO or TF2, then DotA 2 got a subscription service, then Valve released a card game and to top it off, theres BR now. I'm waiting for Valve to make an open world game like RDR2 or FO76

  • ajkfreak
    Aaron J. Girton (@ajkfreak) reported

    f2p bins a portion of revenue for valve, which inherently means they'll attempt to source other mediums of $$, most likely crowdfunding for events in a similar fashion to dota like compendiums etc, too many people on here are thinking small picture, it's stuff to build on and fix
