dota 2 @ summer LAN
« on: August 02, 2013, 03:57:35 AM »
hi everyone!

just looking to see if there is any interest in playing dota 2 @ the upcoming LAN. if we have enough people we could play some inhouses, if not we could just queue pubs together.

MahoneyBadger plays. I tried, but I am terrible and it doesn't seem to be my game type. Some of the eXtelevision guys play too.

Support LAN Play!

I am totally down for DOTA at the LAN! I've been playing a lot lately, but that doesn't mean I'm getting good. Meh, it's still fun to play.

I keep hoping we'll hear more on the rumor of LAN play for this game, but I think they are so focused on the compendium and ranked match making that LAN play is taking a back slide. Ultimately I have trust in Valve to get it into the game.
Eventually something cool will go in here. It's a matter of time.

Nice! I added you on steam, as well as a few others from this site.

I'd say in the experience area I'm slightly above average - I've been playing for about 3 years, and have around 1300 or so matches logged (I played HoN for a small time period before dota 2 came out - I was actually one of the first 500 people invited to the beta). However, my main thing in the game is having fun - I'm down for competitive/serious games/inhouses, but have just as much fun playing pubs with players of all skill levels.

Hey guys, just found out about the summer LAN and am disappointed there's no Dota 2. Hopefullly they'll add it next time. I'm in the area and am always looking to play more Dota 2.

Just because we don't have a tournament doesn't mean there won't be any DOTA 2 action happening. We only have a finite amount of time to dedicate to tournaments so some games have to be left out. If there's enough interest, however, we would definitely be willing to add it for the February LAN. Otherwise, there's ample opportunity to play with any DOTA2 players at the LAN. Heck, we can even throw up a bracket on the tourneys page if you want to run a little side action yourself, there just wouldn't be the oh-so-sweet trophies from FrozenQ that everyone lusts for so strongly ;)
Please just walk away. I don't want to have to stand here and say something so awesome that I'll have to remember it the rest of the day. Thank you!

I'll be willing to play some DOTA2

Maybe FITES should have some DOTA2 time on the schedule
