I think I watched a DOTA gaming event at SXSW Gaming Expo and it looked incredibly boring. I believe they were playing the game because I couldn't really pinpoint any other game they would be playing. They had a crowd watching and it took up half the convention. Highly non impressed. SC/Warcraft or whatever the fuck mod might appeal to some people but it isn't anything special to me. I was almost actually embarrassed to be gamer at this convention. The only thing that saved it was some hot sluts dressed up in some video game characters.
