I'm sure I did, but I never really followed the DOTA scene after that so I dont know. I do know I played some of the absolute best players in the world in BW and WC3 for many years though. I practiced a lot with AT-Intox for instance the months before he Won CPL, Elky, Saft, MadFrog, Everlast and many others of the best BW/Early WC3 players aswell.
Any of these Dota names bring back memories? https://www.dotahaven.com/en/guide/the-10-best-dota-players-of-all-time-in-the-west/
I'm a big fan of the Dota 2 pro scene, especially KuroKy.
