Fnatic EU, Team Liquid, and Na'Vi right by each other. My 3 favorite teams.

Really looking forward to this! (Don't hate on me for being a Na'Vi fanboy - that epic IG wraparound disaster was too epic for words!)

 

I would like to see Kaipi join the ranks, but I know they won't get invited. Maybe they'll be lucky and win the western quals. PieLiedie is my support hero, and I love EE's playstyle (even though he's a complete jerk on streams... I can kind of see why he was kicked out of Alliance (NTH)).

 

Yeah, I love Dota 2.

I'm personally cheering for Alliance, I've seen a few of their games and they are really good. But Na'Vi will always be my fav.

I don't understand how one can care about and be a fan of an E-sports team. Is there some good video I could watch to be able to "get it"?

Don't worry I don't care about E-sports either. First time I watched was the recent Call of Duty championship and that was boring as hell.

I don't have any of Dota 2, but dude, get the right game, and it can literally be absolutely amazing to watch.

That's literally my favorite ending ever. Note this is League, but similar idea.



That game literally gives me the shivers when I watch it. These guys are so incredibly good at the games they play it is unbelievable.

Multiplayer matches can certainly be very exciting and entertaining to watch, and I've watched several Age of Empire 2 games over the years, but I just can't give a damn about who the person is behind the keyboard. In contrast to traditional sports, I only root for the one who happens to be the underdog at a given moment.
