Thank you.

Thanks for the games last night guys, they were a lot of fun despite the steamroll.

I'd love a DoTA 2 invite to check it out if anyone has a spare.

I don't even know where you see how many you have.

It was good gaming with everyone yesterday. Wish we had more time for more matches.

Halloween update is upon us!

The Halloween update is madly addicting. I've got an unusual baby roshan courier!

Hey Thanks for everyone who played on sunday.

Let's male this a weekly thing -- I know DOTA is pretty intimidating. If you're not sure or want a friendly environment to try it out, stop by 4.30 EST on sunday. This is for new people to learn.

If you want something more competitive, join us the rest of the week, or wait until 6.30 sunday, where we'll open up the 5 v5 to people outside the community. We don't want to scare people off by completely crushing them.

I'll add this to the OP.

I didn't get a chance to play it yet-- update actually broke up our game, when we lost someone and then he was forced to update, then couldn't rejoin because the game clients were different. Lame.

I've had some rares but mostly it's crap. First game I was going to get a war dog courier but we got annihilated. Actually, I am always on the losing team but for 1-2 games. It's so much more frustrating than normal dota.

Just watched a video of the Diretide, all i want to do is get home now. I will be on all night for sure.

25 games in the last 23 hours. addicting and frustrating. too bad i'll have to work for 2 days now before i get back into it, but it's not all bad - got a bunch of rares that are probably not worth anything anymore (trade wise) and my hands hurt.

Damn you. Not sure when I'll be able to play.

I'm down with going this weekly. If it is the same time as last week I should be good as it is my day off but it is really early . I'm usually up though.

Sorry if that looked a bit messy. I will get used to posting soon enough.

If any of you guys new or old see me on feel free to ask me for an invite and game. I will help teach as much as I can. Be warned I like winning.

I am usually on 3 - 4 days a week and if I am not playing a 5 man captains mode game with my ILC mates then I am good to go.

Also I have a monstrous amount of ursa, witch doctor and bounty hunter chests as well as many duplicate items if anyone is interested in trading

If anyone manages to get a RAMPAGE n a pub game let me know . I will look at the replay and award a mythical void weapon that is no longer obtainable. No dc's are allowed in the game. And it must not be intentionally fed to you.

Good luck.

I've had a couple rampages, but they were weeks ago so I wouldn't know where to begin on the replay haha. Don't worry about the posting messiness, you are a coffee grinder which disables quoting/images/youtube etc. I think it's only 20-30 posts before you hit intern and all that stuff turns on.

Nah, played all night and into 12 o'clock on the next day, didn't get the call I was expecting and went to bed. 5 hours later was up again playing. Managed to squeeze in a few games today, got a Seraphic Egg and hoping to either be able to trade some items for dire keys or get my salary on time for once xD

Damn you, valve. Why you abusing my addictions? Dota 2 looks to be becoming the Diablo 3 I was hoping for, haha!

Dota is a lifestyle choice! I been hitting Moab for the better part of a decade. Lol

I've seen some pictures of the greevils that come out of the eggs. OR supposed pictures. It's a courier that I'm not too keen on. I'll trade my egg for a strange or rare item, or keys. Or something. Essenses I'll trade too, if I get anymore.

Basically you want to put the colours in that you want the Greevil to be. Yellow = yellow, yellow+blue = green. Any black = black. I think.

Want a Demigod sword for Sven for the egg? Got a few of those. And some essences for anything else, check my inventory if you're interested in something. Maybe we can get a deal on something.

EDIT: for anyone who doesn't have a key and wants to try the game now, here's a Bulgarian retailer doing a giveaway of beta vouchers that will expire in a month if not used. https://www.facebook.com/Ozone.bg Like the page, go to the dota post and click the link, give them some email (can be fake one too) and it will generate you a key on the page.

As far as I know and tested, it's not region restricted so people from all over should be able to use it but I'm not sure, also I don't know how many keys they have left.

One more thin - unusual essences go for 7-8 keys or something like that, shadow ones for 10. All for limited items with unknown effect. Crazy hatpeople.

I still haven't had any time to play since Diretide began and I want to join the crazy hatpeople in their mad item frenzy! I have a sinking feeling that I may be spending far too much time in game this weekend.

I was finally able to play a diretide match. 2 uncommons and a rare. Now I feel a little better and can go to sleep.

I need 1 more red and blue essence (i think, still not quite sure how this works) but I have purple level 2 on my egg. Does it automatically hatch at some point? So if anyone wants to trade for regular items, or if i get any other essences, let me know. Hopping online now.

It hatches at the end of the dire tide period. The 14th I think.

Anyone interested in the Sunday meet up, I created a GWJ chat channel as a meeting place until Atomic and Cask setup a lobby for us.

Why do I always feel so horrible when Atomic asks me to play DOTA 2 and I never have install to play with him! WHY! WHHHHY!!!!!!!

Sorry Crock!

Hope everyone had fun sunday!
Judging from the numbers we're going to have to convert it to a "mostly" gwj event. So friends and non-gwjers are welcome. Proved they are civil, and don't , I dunno, so something in poor sportsmanship, like dive the fountain instead of ending the game.

edit:

Sorry to ask a scrubby question -- are there any spare invites still floating around? I have an interested friend, and would like to swing it his way. If not no worries -- I just figured I'd try to save him a few bucks.

I played like total trash all day yesterday.

Check the link I gave a few posts above, it may still have some codes. If not, I have an extra account I can give you/him to play until the 19th where one of my gifts will be tradeable. Provided he doesn't get one of his own until then.

It's all good. I have it installed now and I just finished Xcom. I won't be starting a new game in the near future. So just yell at me if you want to play.
