"Can sit and be like oh. This is like what they're trying to do. This is what they should be doing. And this is they get. You'll hyped up. And then the in game commentary is just like very hyped up for e. sports and it seems like win. Big things are happening there at the right level and volume and like excitement that you tag along with him so i just think the production value is better. I think that the game really lends itself to Viewership more so than like a lot of these overwatch league. Yeah like an overwatch. League just feels like constant shit going on and constant shooting and you only get super high wind like is a big killer. An incredible snipe like an amazing play where i just feel like because there's so much going on in doda game at any given time they showing you interesting stuff. I never felt like i vow. And i've watched over watched. I never felt like i could easily track. They're switching characters is always felt it was jarring to understand what was going on. And how the flow is going yeah. I think that. I don't know if it's just dotas had more time at their ability of the cameraman to like understand. What's going on and choose the right screens and heroes to follow. And i think it's just the camera in general it's just like an isometric top down view more. Yes and i think that lends itself to being more digestible for an audience till like watching. Yeah understand what's going. I've definitely watched smaller tournaments where the camera person isn't as dialed in so even in the same mode just like not really you know. There's nothing worse than watching an sports valerien or something and somebody gets a pick and need like the commentator goes nuts and that wasn't the player on the screen cool of the five people who can die this round yachts really twenty percent. That's difficult to balance. Where where was it this year. I don't know the city to be honest. I i was like watching it While i was like heavy node making new will dislike on the side of my left on it. It was this last weekend. Yeah okay Yeah that's cool. I mean. I think it's good. Obviously that they're pumping more money into the fucking thing you know. I mean that can only mean things for other games. That i'm more interested in you know yeah online. There was some cool impressive things about it on twitches like the you the that the player sees you can hover over an tells you what it is on twitch you can hover over skill and tells you at the skill does..

"So and then neutral creeps now dropped five neutral items per this is something that has been suggested since the beginning yup and i remember if you brought up at all but this means you're not there's all somebody will always have a neutral item. Everybody will always have so. That is very good. That's very good. Chance normalize it as well right because it's not just like a better chance of getting these very impactful code neutral atom so right because you get one extra drop so the variances smaller and on top of that. Everyone in your team gets one so this is a good change. I don't know how much we wanna talk about neutral items. I'm going to go on a little bit of a rant when we get to the specific ones but That was a thread not too long ago with me being quoted from this podcast from talking about and home saying i don't i don't really think they make the game better. I still have that opinion Also in this patch but this is better than before this concept with five pottier makes it better But i'm still not convinced that it makes the game better. It makes for some things more interesting from a competitive standpoint. I still. I still not sold competitively. But i think casually it's fun it makes games more explosive in different but it also contributes massively to power. Something we haven't really talked about very much. Just want to mention that right now if you think about it right what has happened in doda effectively. In the last few years is we've got neutral items so all heroes get more stats. That they didn't use to have then. We got the patch where mt levels now give plus to attribute something they didn't use to give overall heroes in general have been going on a buffing trajectory rather a nursing one so they've got better and then we had the shards added that it also further improve hero spells and makes them more explosive than we got roche to give an extra item which now finally got rollbacks. now gives the short instead of the cheese. But you can see what i'm getting at right like gain hammer just getting really really explosive in fast a building. Up your heroes. Fast the amount of gold on the map because of all of this seems extreme because you farm so fast with all the free stuff. You're getting the flat fiscal per minute. Gut increased as well and a lot of these changes were meant to accommodate supports that were being poor but when effectively ends up happening is that you also just increase the goal of the carries so everyone is richer and it means you have these six lot of carries minute. Thirty-five that used Need forty five minutes for it and it's just different like i'm a boomer so i'm probably you know a lot of people like it's awesome. Games are mega fast. What are you talking about. I love getting my neutral ends and just going to town and everyone is powerful. It's just different and then whether you like it or not..

"Part of the prediction for the patch. We'll get to a minute. Life steeler eggs syndrome. happen. Okay infest an enemy. I hope to keep it and they buffet. I hope they because it is so cool. But there's just some issues with it just needs a micro buffet. Only attacks four times. Maybe make it five. Maybe you can use items while you're infested so you can use virus bad somewhere else with this. What i thought you were going to s- lexus hero. That you had an pug or in a no no unplug chetta. Yeah yeah. That was disaster. Not no no thank you so if you guys haven't heard slacks to a hero for custom game and it's all to us that it could infested enemy heroin control it. Yeah that's a very bad idea. In my opinion i think hon- had something somewhat similar with puppet master. I don't i don't know what it did but wasn't there some sort of mind control hero on Well maybe after. I left but no not nothing like puppet master. Maybe it was almost like a mini. wavering old kind of attack. Somebody it's like a reverse taunt. Oh that's what it was. Yeah okay. But no i mean we talked about it before but there's been in the files they've shown that ability they're thinking about putting in a new hero. So maybe i don't know how you balance it. That one's crazy but yeah like there have been so many guys the people that are just relatively new to daughter even been playing five six years the stuff that have changed in the course of almost twenty years. Now you wouldn't believe how. Even i couldn't believe how basic the game used to because i didn't think that originally right Honestly that's something. I'm i wouldn't say worried but something that i kind of disagree with right now is that i think you know i'm the good old boring guy. Yep i think doda is getting a little bit too crazy so there's been a lot of changes that are really good right..

"And goes out. I guess the downside to how to say like i. I'm not complaining or say. Like if you're unsubscribe could be a lot of reasons right like it's obviously a shame but the question that he chooses to go out on right. I'm subscribe. i think what will be the downfall of the game. You guys talk you. Not supporting us is the downfall of doda. Okay dude i honestly. I don't know if there is a much discussion. Because i don't know if you would agree with this but i feel like this is just the reality. The answer is valve. And i don't mean that in a super negative way. It's only a matter of time i think doda is just a game. That's gonna be around forever pretty much and it's all about how much attention valve is going to get. Because there's gonna come a time where it's just not from whether it's because of their company policy where people can move around or whatever. Eventually people are just not going to be interested in maintaining it to that level that it's at now so i feel like that is just. It's not an opinion. almost you know what i mean. What do you think i think. The downfall is either going to be neglect so valve at some point. Just flat out move onto other stuff entirely like they have with past games like at some point they just they lose interest and they feel like it's not worth updating anymore. Fortunately for ten years now we've had developers on it that either do it out of passion because they love the game themselves or because of financial incentives or whatever but someday that might not be the case anymore. That's one way it could be. The downfall of the other one is another game comes in and takes it over rain. That's the thing that you could either hope for or dread depending on your perspective of dodos but it's what happened to other games in other genres is that a game is big until something better or newer or fresher comes around that rivals too hard and takes the player base and defeats it right for the consumer. That's a thing if there's a competitor that is really really good at what they do and rival the the stage for it so to speak For the individual game that come obviously even possible. I don't know. I don't know if the genre doesn't doesn't count. Okay all right. Technically the question was what will be the downfall of doda too so the answer could be to three. Didn't really mean it from a perspective. I know but i'm just saying that could be act..

"So what happens if you don't mind secondly so that's the first thing the first thing is fuck that this system is even in place but secondly why do people think skim makes them better like placebo. Can't wrap my head around the cosmetic. Let me give you an example. You're the way your weapon works. Center is just for show. You're being makes them her syndrome. You're being What's the word a little ero- body. Yes i know. But i'm gonna i'm gonna give you my thoughts on valerie real quick because this actually has come up before there are different skins in the game obviously for weapons and some of them change sound effects right. There is like this. Meme about this one skin. It's the prime. I think it's called the prime skin where it changes almost like laser sounding people just feel more accurate with it even though that's obviously not true. It's a placebo. And i actually feel the same way like literally feel the same way and then if you suck ass with it you change skins and the placebo if you know. It's a placebo. It still works it tricks. Your mind is actually a real thing. So so i'm not shocked by it for that reason. Yes of course by it because of the sounds. They think they will make shoot more precisely. Okay yes it's like from doda perspective. That's the main perspective. I have here. Is that all the cosmetics and doda to my understanding people by the shit because they like to show off because they think it's fun and they enjoy playing with the skin and that's you know that's the market. I have no problem with that. I also skins because. I think it's fun and i like the shit i get and i like to pimp out my heroes and support the game. I'm never like. I just can't wrap my head around this mentality of buying it because you think it makes you better at the hero or at the character in the game but if there.

"doda" Discussed on Budget Arcade: Free to play gaming

"There's really no reason. Unlike other auto battlers there's only you can only level the characters one time. Correct like you can't get like three sets of right of there's your tier three level and we should also mention that you have a bench of four so you can get hold onto four units on your bench as your building. Everything so the really one of the things about her snow knight. Dr battleground side didn't like lie. So you get unit and you kind of have a card version of it. I think you're bench was fairly limitless and battlegrounds or a very high limit. But if you want to sell that unit you'd have to play it first and then sell it. Found to be like annoying and this game. You can sell it for your bench. You can sell it from the board. So i think like the the game is easy to pick up harbourmaster which is kind of shape but also if you do master. You're just going to get lucky sometimes. And if you're okay with that and you know like i was. Today i was playing before we started recording. I was listening to an audio book. And just plain rounds of storybook brawl and enjoying myself and it didn't bother me that it was thirty seconds left before the round began. Because i'm like well just gonna enjoy this audiobook or podcast than it's just nice to play when i don't feel like playing anything to taxing and a lot of our taxing and this one feels just more streamlined. Mean to be that guy. But i feel like i was the one that pushed us into the first auto battler team five tactics. I feel like i was the guy that kind of push you did. Doda under lord doda underlying. It was under lord. Sure right. I feel like i pushed us into that direction and i found that i did not enjoy that genre very much. I feel like you've really enjoyed it a lot. Jeff and i was like oh. I'm glad that i was like pushing forward because it sounds like something enjoyed but i feel like overall. I enjoyed the gameplay aspect of this and the auto beyeler moi more than the traditional. And it's way different right. Yeah like you pick up a dodo under lords and you jump the chess rushing. You do team fight. Tactics in the rules are all kind of the same. And now t.f. T i have to say. They changed their game. All the time. Like from six months to six months is like they've got weird mechanics that it's unrecognizable and i don't know if that's a good thing or not you know but they're the number one auto battler so it must be.

Steam has officially come to China

"There is something called. Steam china that has been in development for many years is coming out soon ish to read. What the message says for people that are currently i believe in china. They're just using regular steam. It says let me just zoom in here. Starting next week you'll need to play via the new steam china platform. you'll have the same efficient matchmaking. And fast paying to local servers plus access to a growing collection of great games on steam china when steam china is officially live will provide you an endgame link to download the new steam client when you launch seem china like just say seem china over and over us just like subliminal messaging here. You'll use your dotage to game account not your perfect world passport. That's weird by the way to log in and we'll help. You migrate your account and transfer your game progress. So from what i was reading and i'm not getting into the whole censorship thing because i don't know enough about it to really give comment because china has its own planet basically but from what. I'm reading the biggest reason that they're doing. This is so that valve can cater like the steam store to china specifically as oppose to everybody kind of sharing an international. Which how is that a thing. Can't you just do regional like based on what region you're in these games pop up or something like that honestly might just some sort of work around that had to do because of of the law right. Maybe i think so. Valve have wanted to launch steam china for many years right and they've always from what i understand they've been running into this wall where legislation just shuts them down. Because of the like. You said there's like games that china doesn't want people to have access to that. Could be like gory or bloody or with seems that are considered illegal in video games there that's also why doda looks different in china. There's heroes that look different. Like lifestyle looks different. Pudge looks different etcetera etcetera skeleton king. What did they what china get when we got that immortal. That's a great question. I think it's got look different on chinese climate. I don't think i've seen that one. But anyway i'm guessing because of legislation that it might have been easier to pass and get through that by making a separate client that is government approved rather than having an international client where you need to specifically green light every game like maybe legal needs. There's a difference in the end like you said the outcome could be the same right.

Group Nine's Geoff Schiller on his selling strategy

"And wanted to ask to obviously because as you mentioned twenty twenty was a a really wild year to be in your i kind of year since the acquisition in the merger and implementing some of these strategies around your sales I guess can you talk about how ad business was impacted at the same time. I know you guys have launched some pretty unique Sponsorship initiatives around some content packages in ip and things of that nature. But everyone was you know across the board impacted a certain degree when it comes to add Spending so i guess talk a little about like you know. Twenty twenty how that was for group nine. Yeah absolutely Certainly the pandemic threw a curveball. To all as you mentioned from our perspective corporately when we go to market we talk about how group nine has the most optimistic fast moving deeply connected brands that matter now and certainly you can say. Oh that's pithy and that you know that's corporate speak but it really played out in what was wildest of years in a lot of ways. The most tragic of years the convergence of social unrest civil unrest political unrest with the pandemic a once in a generation Experience in so. I think from that perspective. Everything that i mentioned in terms of what defines group nine On a molecular level across the company played in our favor we were able to move really quickly In terms of pivoting for example we launched within weeks following the pandemic. we launched as we've talked about before. Now this had a new franchise Launch call now in this together which was really about spotlighting heroes and And and the helpers in communities during the pandemic and and so that actually happened within two weeks of the pandemic and we have literally sold every episode of that Since july so i would say the thing that we shared in common with the industry was everybody took their licks in acute to that was certainly when on march thirteenth on lockdown. Everything sort of scrambled and the the the prime beneficiary in a negative way was was cute. Too but q. Three we were really able to pick up not just in this together. We launched new. Ip across a variety of brands. But i would say twenty. Twenty was unimaginable year But our brands really focused on finding new and innovative ways to connect with people and i would say adding to that at the same time. Not only was it about all the things that i mentioned but our audience growth was just tremendous until some of that is the acceleration of the shift from in office to at home the shift from digital from linear to digital. But it's also just by nature of who our brands are who they represented. We went from doing around five billion monthly views the beginning of the year to ending around seven billion We saw our tiktok. Audience grow significantly We have now Up to reach over twenty five million viewers across snapped as of q four and so we see tremendous audience growth throughout twenty twenty and the sort of code on that was from nancy sales perspective. Q four mark the strong secure four. We've ever had on record. So i guess like an do wanna ask a little bit more about q. Four as it is the strongest as you mentioned on record but also you know. You're you're for your ad business in particular Was that didn't end up being in revenue for you guys. Yeah so we had a pretty big hit in q two We saw incremental growth. So i kind of look at it as a first-half second-half second half was Was a much different picture. We finished second half up year-over-year We were still for the full year. Closer to flat Just based off of the hit we took in particular based off of our exposure in certain categories like travel through so dependent on travel in that went away and certainly retail. Took a big hit as well but The tale of two halves where q one was kind of like the integration settling and then q two was the double hit of co vid. It was vastly different second half with incremental growth in q three and then q four being the strongest. We've ever had for the company. I think it's also slightly common I've talked to a few publishers. Say that like q four ended up being a very strong. I'm quarter for them. Which is probably their saving grace and a lot of cases But i'm curious so you mentioned that you're doing this very like endemic focus on some of these brands and really wanted to be the authority in as you mentioned the dodo pet care Thrillers travel things of that nature I guess coming out of twenty twenty though. Do you think that that is something that could potentially be. I don't wanna say like mental. But it could to a degree Impact business again like travel ended up being You know put on ice for another year or so You thinking about these. Like endemic focuses While also making sure that your ad business is staying on a growth trajectory. The it's a great question. And i think the example i would give is the dodo Specifically because it's so endemic right. You can say list travel but trout. It's also experienced It's an experience brand food. Drink travel Whereas the more sort of apples to apples is the dodo is a modern family brand. That owns the the the pet space and so the way that we saw the need to find those travel dollars from somewhere else or the retailers for somewhere else came through our strategy of saying we already own endemic on the dodo for pets. How do we own the non endemic of modern family and so we were able to drive new relationships so i guess like a sort of a long winded answer of saying anytime. You're you're backed into a corner. You tend to if you have sort of like the fast twitch muscle fiber thinking. You're able to find new pathways really fast. Some organizations are able to do that others. Just sort of flail. I as i mentioned earlier we move fast ethos but also an operating guideline and so from our perspective with the dodo. We were able to then. Hey look the doda was truly on. Its way to being in the same category as disney neck. Modern family brand family save brand safe also safe on social which became an issue and so we were able to open the aperture of client partners on the dodo and get brands like craft. Get brands like close. Get target So our strategy is certainly to leverage the power of the portfolio. And if we if we were one brand we would definitely be stuck about. Because we're five. We have that power of the portfolio opportunity to then say. How do we have a relationship ear that can be leveraged over there. Or how do we open the aperture from one category to the next the the g growth on the dodo is definitely emblematic of that. So you mentioned retail and travel as being to those categories that Obviously were down but What were some of the ones that ended up being up this past year a former was up and this is more over the counter not not to direct to consumer specifically Cpg was way up Beauty was was slightly. Up tech was pretty significantly as telecom as well and then financial services. So i think really. We saw pretty significant growth across the board with the exception of retail The exception of travel and then I would say media and entertainment is kind of like a toss up because the the theatrical obviously went away broadcast was muted because of covid production delays and then the streaming wars. We benefited to some extent. But they didn't really heat up until the second half of the year so it wasn't like there was enough room in cute to again to kind of blunt the losses with with streaming but streaming has come on pretty strong in Q four now into q. One and i certainly expect it will be It'll be a growth category for us. This year

Is chess an Esport?

"On this. Podcast we've said chess is definitely any sport it's so cool to see you know Gm ichuro streaming for tsm and playing chess and chess was invented. Today would definitely be any sport. you know. we've we've sort of back that narrative collectively. And then i saw this article and i'm like wait a second. Something's not right like this doesn't feel right to me as much as i believed streaming of chest feels like a little bit of any sport is magnus carlsen is he. The top e sports earner is this really as good for the sports industry as a whole to sort of make this kind of call Or are we sort of now trying to include too much in the definition and we only hurt ourselves like. Where are you guys on that on that on. That thought lindsey. I'll let you start okay. I talked about this on twitter a little bit earlier. I think it's great. So one of the things about these lists especially. I was looking at the top ten team earnings to i mean the amount of potential earnings that are out there are just around fifteen to twenty percent of what they were last year. Because of the pandemic so part of it is that chest was super easily translatable in a pandemic near still able to hold tournaments. It's still very familiar. People still wanted to watch it whereas some other tournaments games. Whatever with the line element. It's not as exciting. So we'll see his carries over into next year that would be an interesting trend but the other part is that. I still don't think it's necessarily a bad thing for this is a little bit. I mean this is where it gets a little bit to differentiate between these sports gaming and top earning streamers as top running eastwards competitive on and the the delineation between all of those is really murky unclear. Obviously he's not the most popular Twit streamer and i wouldn't expect him to have the most money made off of that or most money made off of endorsements or whatever. So when i look at it from that lens. I don't think it's a bad thing that he's leading in this. Very narrow niche category called e sports. Where we're only looking at tournament winnings that have been decimated during a pandemic so but like even non pandemic like even. If you go back he probably still would have made the top ten and half a million dollars. You're weirdo doda to the winning team. Each guy makes you know couple of million bucks. He still would be up there. And i think the bigger question is you know everyone seems gung ho to call chesini sport right but then you see a list. At least i saw list like this. And i go wait. A second at maybe. Have we gone too fast. Here right like manx. Carlson to me has never been an east sports competitor right and so it started trending downwards though if people kind of us chess has an introductory way of getting into it because it is familiar international and then got for like league of legends. Like watching chess. Yeah i i. I very much think that that kind of strategy play that people get into is easily transferable to other games and that it could be a way of just doing that choices. I mean just. Chess has the advantage of longevity. It's been around for thousands of ears. So i don't think it's a bad thing right now. Maybe in ten years. I would think that this would be a bad trend. Maybe even five years but for right now this year it's point even stronger. I feel like we're using chess at this more rate like being used in the dirty version of the word right like we're using it for sorta like clout right because it's cool to have chess as an e sport and chest is massively popular internationally right and then as soon as as soon as you have. Magnus carlsen at the top of the list. Everyone goes oh. No no not any sport like i feel like we're using it a little bit and chris brings up a good point here. Jeff maybe you want to comment on like when do we call poker any sport. Yeah that's a good point. You got a slippery slope at some point. Can you call you know anything. That's being played electric. You know it's just this other point at some point. Can you just call anything you play like you know like if we're flipping a coin and betting on the outcome is that an e sport if it's filmed than like you're in one place at other place i don't know

Epic League Division 1 Recap

"The epic league has concluded division. One is what we'll talk about because we cast a bunch of those by the way for those that. Don't watch it first of all. Thank you everybody that gave us the support and all that good stuff as usual. We appreciate it. Cinder hates it. But you know i appreciate every series we cast except one was either two or three. Oh that is incredible like every single one we had it was i believe. So what was it actually. So that's the other thing is almost every almost every game even to one were stopped for the most part like none of them were even guess which was unfortunate. We cast a lot of biking and like the last two days. It just felt like either. They were not playing particularly well or vp. An og were just so much better like on a different level completely but to wrap it up Viking after getting off to a really good start in the group stage with vp ended up losing to them in the upper bracket finals so they dropped the lower bracket where og kind of swept pre on not swept but cleaned house from the lower bracket round one all the way to the lower bracket files with a viking which we cast and then played against vp so vp. Went to all five games. And i got to watch. Game is really exciting. Cast by trent and lyrical. That was like the one truly good series. I feel like i don't get. Yeah kinda sad but you know to each. I mean again. It's just the luck of the draw right. Yeah of course. what did you think of this tournament overall. I think it was really well run. I liked. Maybe it was a little bit too long and some ways. I think some people would argue that but at the same time it came during a dry period and dodo. So i think it was welcomed by a lot of people that there were this many games if we had more tournaments running at the same time would like the shorter format probably l. a. Soul many games. How long did this league run for months. Five so many games But their division system with division to division one relegation I think it was very well done. I think the the teams that they had were very good. Obviously it was basically all the best teams in the west playing And yeah it it was. It was definitely a definitely a good tournament. Something we love to talk about here. I just wanted to give a quick side note on that. Is the price distribution because we have very strong opinions on that Not too fond of how they split the top three. I think from wrong. I feel like this is unusual in in doda. By now they had first place be twice of second. Be twice a third so it was two hundred thousand first hundred thousand per second and fifty third and forty thousand for fourth thirty thousand for fifth sixth and twenty five thousand for seventy eight so effectively. The difference between eighth and third is half as big as the difference between third and second right I feel like this is too steep once again. I'll keep this until august. This is on the other spectrum though us the other way around right. It's usually just top heavy and then the rest are kind of similar right not tell other but scaling throughout all the top two how to say like okay so let me explain. I think it's good that the lower placements get paid this much. Because they still you know they stayed in division one they avoided relegation or they got promoted in the case of yellow submarine. So that's fine. But i think i don't think the finals should be worth this much just like i have the same opinion at ti ti. It's extreme that's totally like a different beast. But if you look at like other. I want to say other east sports or other sports with prize distribution. I don't think now. Correct me if i'm wrong on this. I don't think the finals is generally a double up But maybe this in in other games. I'm not sure that's a bit too intense. So if you if you were to ask me. I would have been very happy with something like finals. Second-place hundred thousand first-place hundred fifty. And then you take those fifty k. You give a bit more to third so that the difference between fourth and third is bigger than this. It shouldn't be a ten k. Jump going from out outside to the podium right. So i guess should be a bit more meaningful get third. It's a metal right And then the remainder of the fifty k. Can either you can give. Yeah you could probably give a bit more just like straw. Maybe don't even need to take fifty k. From i maybe you just take like three. And and i don't disagree but if got the lake we can. We can argue about details on the price for a lot of these tournaments and this is not the worst that i've seen. No no no of course not deflate on

Valorant First Strike Championships

"So. I strike has completed like we talked about last time around the like championship series. I can't remember the name anymore. The championship tour that they're going to do is going to be starting next year. So this first strike term is kinda like the the regional championships if you wanna call it that just as a test bed for all this like they had a new spectating system and stuff like that so was cool to see. I only watched an a. I haven't had time to go back. But i i know some like the five people that are interested in environment that are watching the eu division. I didn't get to watch any of these games. But i am shocked. The teams that won the teams that got to the end. I'd never heard of so the team. Heretics beat g two which is widely considered the top team not only in eu. But in the entire valerie game and then on the other side of the bracket fun plus phoenix to su nfc and again fun plus phoenix has been like the one slash two of europe for a long time and it so team heretics ended up beating. Sem f. i don't know how do you say that summoned. Fc fucking either of these teams at all the snow minnesota team heretics wins that and then for noaa which i can't speak to Really cool production. The way they did it with the remote casters and whatnot. I thought it was really well. Done overall had a three hundred thousand peak viewership. That's just for north america. You can compare that to you. Know one region in doda. It's roughly the same. I guess for like e you for the biggest. But as i don't think the biggest thing you probably has big numbers haven't checked that though any who Hundred thieves beat. Tsm three one which is really cool story. Line because one hundred thieves. I don't know if you've heard of guy named haeco syndrome. I have so he go for those. That don't knows like this older guy by older. he's thirty. he's considered an old man. Counterstrike guy back from a team liquid days where he brought them to prominence as an nfl team So he got a team for hundred thieves. It was ham and four pub. G players made the i team and they were horrifically bad. They lost every with us every game. Everyone was making fun of them then. The organizations like all right he go. We will kick these other four guys. You can build your own team. So he constructed. A team of two other veteran counterstrike guys in steel and I try nitro. Thank you are like captains of their times. They have three older guys that have a lot of experience and then two younger guys in dicey and my goodness was a fucking beast. I don't think i've ever seen anybody destroy any team harder than he did. In that grand finalist but so they go from the worst team basically with a name to winning a tournament three one against a very season. Tsm team in very convincing fashion. It was really exciting to watch and Yeah good shit. And here's the interesting. I wanna talk to you about so we've talked about how you in doda the way that it works with streaming games right which for a while. It was the gray area. That some streamers took advantage of. And now it's more constricted or restricted. I should say so. Riot allows certain streamers to stream the games as like a co streamer so you had streamers like ninja and then myth who's like a quote unquote coach for tsm. He had the highest viewership of anything including the mainstream actually watching like it was actually a lot of fun to watch because he'd be watching them just screaming like he's a cheering them on. It's like it's really cool. I was thinking like if there was an nba stream and i was like screaming and watching the sun's that'd be i feel like that'll be fun to watch and that's basically what he got to do. Obviously it lost.

Ninja Calls for an Esports Olympics

"Some news. We've got This first news story and it's an one because this is you know this guy is the face of gaming in east sports really Essentially sports dot com and it's ninja sort of On the cover here with the headline just make any sports olympics. Ninja wishes for gaming to be bigger than ever The the this was sort of a quote that they took from his interview with g. q. Australia and ninja expressed his views about ambitions for gaming to be part of the olympics. And i'll just read the quote from ninja himself here. It says then just said sure but how about just making sports olympics. How about that make an olympics. We don't need gaming to be a bona fide sport. That whole conversation is in my opinion. Very over hyped. There are already. There are already so many diehard olympia knights who are like we don't want them tainting it. It's like all right fine we don't want to be in there we'll just create our own Do you think of that first of all. What do you think of his quote. Obviously williams conversation around. And i think there's almost some some weird nostalgia here. I believe we had this kind of discussion on are very very first. Episode of the podcast. Which is like our east sports sports right. Should they be considered sports so it. It goes back to that discussion. But what do you think of his quote specifically here well. It's really interesting. Because i i read this article. I was like right on brother. Like i literally was like we need it. It should exist. I think you're right if the olympics doesn't want to do. It carved out separately. Like and i still feel that way. I think the sentiment is really really good right. It's the right sentiment. However i have to say two things here. The first thing i'd say is okay. I know where you're going with this right like like easier because the practical reality of this as these aren't just sports. They're owned by the publishers. So how do you even begin to set this up. Like what's your conversation with riot like you call them your like hi. I'd like to throw the olympics of league of legends. And you know what riot says. We already have the olympics of league of legends. It's called the league of legends championships. Prude by only hold on. Do you have tons and tons of money. no okay way so it doesn't happen like it. Just there are so many practical barriers pragmatically for something like this to exist because the in sports the athletes through the unit that you need and they would like to compete in competitions here the publishers union. You need and they have very few incentives decide on the only way they might do it is with legitimacy if a body would true international legitimacy like the ioc comes in and says they want to do it and obviously my third thing which is came injure. You do it like if you're serious about it. You're one of the few people in the space with half and actually candidly intelligence and good enough management. That i believe you might be able to pull it off. Ray like everything we've seen about your is your career has been expertly positioned you have a lot of credibility in mainstream crossover appeal like if you think it should exists. There are very few stakeholders in the space. Could put it together. You might actually be one of the people who could start to look at that. I even knew. I don't think you can do it by yourself. But i think you probably have access to these to a network that could start to activate itself. That's my response. Then justice olympics. This kind of branding that like and he would be driving this really and you think that would cause the publishers to get in line and say this. Keep in mind right. If it's a true olympics sort of counterpart right. They would be competing in multiple sports right. There'd be there'd be an event or no no where. Where did you get that from. The people who swim. Don't also run. You just nothing. But if you're putting on an olympics there's going to be a a league of legends event. There's going to be a smash brothers event there's gonna be able to doda event right like you need multiple events with different competitors for it to be olympic kind of counterpart but what you're saying the developers won't sign on unless you bring him bagfuls of money or why would why would you if you're riot. Why would you create an event that you do not have control over right. That is an air right. Now you're right. You are the king maker. You got to say who the best league of legends team in the world is every year. And you got to get all those eyeballs and all of that monetization. Why would you create another event that all gets to crown legitimate winner in less. Either you get so much more money. It's worth it for. There's there's very few incentives for publishers to do this. The same thing happens in traditional in traditional sports and traditional olympics right. there's hockey and basketball at the olympics. But they also have their own championships so those two things can coexist the question

NIP Drops Out of Dota

"An ip also known as nip depending on who you want to be casting. Your games are no longer together in terms of the org so the oregon has dropped the doda to team completely. The in case you forgot the roster is charlie supreme saver light sonoko and my boy arrow is michika but in the official roster. I think he might still be listed there. But he hasn't played with the team for a while. He has another team entirely michelle. Maybe still officially on tryout. So that's why he was not added to the official ip roster. So i guess they're still they were still technically a four man team but so are you surprised by this not really it's just it's really How to say this is a great example of the times right. I'm gonna. I'm gonna read out the quote from there From the coo. About why they chose to do this. Because i think they're trying to make it very clear that they're not leaving doda because they don't like the game or like the team that they have or whatever but its economy right so says this year has taken a massive toll on what was already an unstable ecosystem with the indefinite postponement of the deep sea. And the international we find ourselves in an increasingly unclear path to financial stability within the game. We're seeing a high concentration of town in the region meaning that the cost of keeping up is markedly higher while revenues are dwindling. Ninjas in pajamas is one of the most iconic teams in the world competing for the biggest trophies is a core part of our dna and the road so that through is simply not viable at this point because of that we have decided to shut down our doda to department in its current format and rethink our strategy regional presence completely a special thanks go star players who have worked hard to improve. Take all positively to our all our ideas on how to rethink the current way of approaching doda to. It's an incredibly talented group of players. Who have no doubt go far. I wish them the very best of luck. So there's a couple of things here right one. Is they talk about how europe is just too expensive like the cost. Benefit here is not good when there's no d. c. n. ti. It's way cheaper on the team and other regions because the salary expectations are lower. That's one well in addition to that. Obviously you like we just said is the highest tier doda right now. So if you're not in the top echelon which they're not yup then. You're not going to be doing well either. And then if you go to another region like for example if they picked up an a team like that in the current form even make sense. I don't know with the new. Dpc calling in january. Maybe it's possible but we've talked about this before and we just can't be surprised dr sure there's teams that are actually winning right now. That are doing decently. Well that are still losing money. And that's the problem with doda in not shun. Hopefully things will start changing as a result of the dp A big problem here. Is that an order of this magnitude. Needs to pull out of the game because of economy. That's the red flag right. It's not that big leaves. Doda can have different reasons for doing it. You can leave it because your team just isn't doing well. Or you want to reinvest into another game and you want to focus on that instead but this wording to me is pretty clear it is. We can't profit off this game and it sucks because we like it. You know that that pretty much seems to be the case and they're not the first ones right the reason this is making more headlines as that it's an ip there's been other teams doing the exact same like in Multiple teams have shutdown orders. That were investing just ended up quitting. Was it crazy. The team was zoa and It's a tra- the org left first. And then eventually the team disbanded but like and they probably ended up disbanding because they had no financial support and terminally so you know it's kind of a ripple effect and all we can do is really hope that whatever valve does in the start of the next year i just hope. It's not the bare minimum. You know. I really hope they understand. And see how much value there is in getting invested in this. And how much there is to lose really by not doing it that we don't just settle. I feel like we've settled for pretty long and we need some sort of like active interference. Or whatever you wanna call it.

PUBG Mobile Announcing a $14M Esports Program for 2021

"So let me bring this up here. this is. This is from the sports network Dot com the headline is pudgy. Mobile announces fourteen million dollar east sports program in twenty twenty one The article goes on to say that They've announced their pudgy mobile global championships. The newest program boasts a grand prize pool of fourteen million making it the biggest competitive series run in mobile s sports history. This is a huge price pool for mobile. I will say Something we've never seen before. The article goes on to give some details into sort of the structure and things like that but Just to give you a sense Mobile east sports According to newzoo has Has generated nine hundred fifty million dollars. Globally So you know this is one of these things where Pudgy mobile is taking a leadership role in the mobile e sports space william first of all. Are you guys involved there at all and second of all like what do you make of the now. We're starting to see moberly. Sports price pools rival call. It traditionally sports prize pools. Yeah well first of all. I just wanna put that figure in context right because we are stunned that you know the doda invitational gets above thirty million in pricing. Right like absolutely stunned right. So that is. I think arguably you know everybody looks at doda and says well. That's the pinnacle of e sports right in terms of your payday rates and terms of price. Paul this is basically half of that right so if you were going to rank each sports payouts i believe this puts them as number four overall for potential payout structure like in terms of highest pricing. Ever so it's huge like an for a mobile game again. This isn't for like you know. Bread and butter. Pc's for settle for mobile. This is just. I mean it's so significant and i think it highlights what i am coming around to which i think is maybe difficult for you to swallow paul. But it's that mobile is so accessible and it's so ubiquitous the audience about there's just such a built in audience there and for many people in many countries right. The phone is the primary gaming device and those consumers want e sports just as badly in one competition just as badly and so the reality is it is a big white space for games to lean into and i i think pudgy mobile. It's a little bit you know. I almost ironic in my. Because i wrote in my book about how i felt like pub. G missed opportunity right like they didn't defend well against port night. They made poor decisions as a result. They kind of seated that traditional market. But this is a really strong example of that brand reinventing itself to a leadership position and actually. It's kinda funny if you look at where fortnight is today and you look at where pub. Jesus today fortnight is struggling because of its absence in multiple rights for night is booming. It really underscores that the critical value of being on a you know three by six inch pizza piece of computing hardware in people's pockets. Right and so. I have to even say this is one where i'm putting my money where my mouth is right like i've you know. Oxygen east sports has announced. I think we were in the east sports observer this week for we signed a former fanatic player out of india for pudgy mobile You know to to help us. You know look at that ecosystem and do more there and you know i think it's part of a bigger belief in oxygen that mobile has potential. But it's also part of. I think a bigger global wakeling which i'm being a part of which is like mobile is is happening in east sports weather. You know we can be hardcore keyboard and mouse. Snow aim assist. All we want but the reality is it's a really important way people game today and it deserves

Team Secret Cleans Up At Esports Awards

"Team secret for the e sports awards that i did not watch at all They one team of the year. They won player of the year which was nisha and coach of the year. Which is hain. is that all correct syndrome. Correct what do you think of that. So teamster again no. Ti this year and other other games have had the kind of their big tournaments some of them at least league for example but secret essentially winning the last. If you wanna take out the last few weeks has been seven plus money. I wanna say eight events in a row. Yeah seven months. They want everything just winning. Literally everything would you. I mean obviously our daughter bubble. So we're gonna agree right. The doda words everything. i would agree with. I don't know if i would put nietzsche's player of the year. I think it's hard to pick one. Yeah but he would definitely be one other candidates right. So i mean as it always is with these multi game award shows right. It's easy for us to say that these are great choices because we don't follow the other games that are part of it nearly as much to be honest with you. I don't even know which games are eligible to win in the sports category. If it's dodo leagues he has go rainbows. Six call of duty. Like i don't know what games are included in this is. It's hard to imagine another team in any game being as dominant the secret where this year. I think that's fair to say like you need to basically when everything right and not only that but the competition needs to be tougher which is unlikely once again because of corona because you know arguably secret even had a really tough region to play and while this was happening wasn't like it was just free easy wins because the region was week or something still tons of teams so it's super impressive I'm happy coaches got a bit more recognition so gretz to heen as well. I think he's really elevated this team to the next level they just started owning after he joined. I feel like it made a pretty big difference at least down the stretch Ceo good stuff. The thing about these awards shows though is. I don't know how much stock to put in the general. It's always cool for the teams to get recognition like this But i wish maybe it was a little bit more transparent a little more defiant. How we're going to segue into this next kind of mini topic of what do you think of award shows for e. sports in general because from my perspective i'm used to watching the oscars. I don't really watch a lot of other award shows at all but the oscars. I watch every single year. It's an event you know it's fun to watch. Even if i hate all of the movies which is sometimes the case that they just pick like the criteria just doesn't make sense to me sometimes like these artsy fartsy like movies will sometimes win for no reason. According to me but again like what criteria are they using. I don't know maybe you just don't have any taste. No that's definitely. I love in bruges. It's a great movie. Don't try to get out obligation. But what do you think from east perspective because when you look at the movies just as you know. Let's just do a one to one here. It's pretty clear. Even without knowing the exact criteria it's movies of this category but for east. There's just it feels like it's not as black and white. There's just so many different games. What is even considered an e sport. Technically speaking like. I don't even know the answer that question. That's the thing i mean. I guess the analogy of the comparison is really good though because in movies. There's also like it's super subjective. Right like what do you consider. A good movie is very different. From one person to the next head would be considered true. I suppose what it's defined as an eastport is a game that yeah but how many how big of a following doesn't need to have how significant to the price does need to be if i host a tournament in prague for one hundred bucks on eastport best escort because then then a lot of things could have won but now i i don't know what the criteria is and i think that's what we're probably agreeing on right now is that Maybe maybe are transparent about it. I just haven't seen it. I'm not saying that's not the case But yeah. I don't even know what sport is because like you said if it's just money than short that's anything could be in eastport if it needs to be x. amount of player base and have tournaments consistently running like whatever the case may be but either way. I like the idea of it. The fact that this is. I believe the fifth year in a row that their continued to do it is cool people show up to the event. There were ranked tuxes. They're trying to make it. That's where i don't like it. Actually they're trying to make it to. I don't know if mainstream is the right word but they're just trying too hard to copy everybody else like just let people show up in fucking sweatpants like were gamers man. Nobody wants to wear a goddamn suit. Unless you're a fucking psychopath syndrome okay. Being honest a lot of people do like dressing up on occasion. I think they don't like having to wear a uniform. It's like that all the time but for special occasions i think people like to do something extra like but honestly now that you it. I think it would be super cool if our award shows had people show up and team jerseys of their favorite team instead of in tuxes right. I think it'd be cool

"He's he his channel and the channel doing a lot of like Budget pc builds to get great to get good streaming at the. Yeah the average setting that most people who are not partnered will be able to use and maintain high. Fps in game. The reasons are just slapping. That's the way to go. Its one which one do you need. Yeah exactly so. Yeah so five. Thousands are out of luck because good luck getting a hold of one But yeah i mean they look promising everything. I've seen pretty much every game that they chose to show for stats has a bonus is a plus certain amount of percentage better on the rises than they are on the the into tens and this one game. That's like even which is weird. Another thing i like to say about that. They always choose the weirdest games to basically map like here. Actually have the slides open the choose league of legends like k plus twenty one percent. Great the pudgy. Plus five percent great Doda to plus six percent f f one thousand nine hundred plus six percent raise a game yeah battlefield five minus three percent so until still better. That's interesting total war. Three kingdoms plus one percent oh boy. Cs go like who cares. About plus one thousand nine percent shadow the tomb raider plus six far cry new dawn plus to ashes singularity plus five percent some so. Yeah so. I don't know it's interesting. What the game choice. I mean i guess relevant i they must. They must something in the game tests. Something different pudgy sucks. It's horrible and optimize. So if you get a plus five percent with a rise in and i mean that's pretty good right. Yeah so. I know it's interesting. Have you can get a rise and five and you get a thirty seven thirty seven. I mean you're like the god of pc gaming right now. Basically a mass effect saw this on the weekend. And i don't i feel we talked about this like you know what games could remastered or would you again. I feel like we've talked about a mass effect remastered. We talked about that in In that sense. And then we also talked about because. I'm pretty sure there were leaks. There were rumors four or five months ago. Around that there were two remastered the trilogy so tappin spreading. It looks like anyone baby. Yeah so xbox. And ps four. I mean all the major areas. I'm assuming it'll hit series x and pius five and like some sort of backwards compatible way. I guess i mean like i said when i was looking into. It didn't say anything about those. I would assume yeah. I know the. Ps ps four games are most of them are backwards on the ps five.

This token is designed to reward fans for interacting with the team allows them to have a minor say in how the team is being run now is praising each token of one. Us dollar and they say they will only offering. Maximum of five million tokens in total. It's similar to crowdfunding from fans of the organization but also gives an added layer of control beyond just kicking in some money for a small percentage of the org.

Cuban was fined a boatload of money by the government due to its crypto currency unit. Coin gold. now well. I don't claim to be a lawyer. That case determined that unicorn and used the crypto way to raise money but they didn't go through the proper steps that the us government if they wanted to do so now unicorn is a us based company so they're beholden to different laws. The knobby who were based in ukraine. Still we've seen how crypto currency can potentially cause problems in eastwards. It isn't handled properly by the organization offering both other organizations already on the socio platform. They're clearly backing it up with a legitimate partner. At least you'd hope so

Between the months of October ninth and December thirty first. This is out of. So. I've obviously had some history Saudi Arabia you know having grown up there and whatnot. So I always have like this. I don't know if affinity is the right word but I root on people that are of Middle Eastern descent when they're playing because it's such a small minority, right? So like Is, basically, collect a collective of a bunch of Middle Eastern people. I don't know anybody like anybody that plays from Saudi Arabia I duNno Saudi Arabia even recognize owed to. Strange. So. So this tournament just to be clear is for Saudi. Arabian players only. Yeah. It's not for the Middle East in general and just called the Saudi Arabian leak. Like it doesn't. Article that we've read what the limitations are for entry. Does five, hundred thousand dollars professional teams of Saudi Arabia region region. Was the Saudi Arabia region as an Saudi Arabia or The middle region maybe it's a sad writing I don't know it. So it could mean a multiple think if it's Middle Eastern, they would have said Middle Eastern. But if it's Saudi Arabian, it could it could mean like some of the countries like around like you know like, Yemen or like Dubai, for example, is probably the most popular eastport area in that region. but I believe five hundred thousand dollars is split between Doda and two other games that they haven't announced yet. But either way that's a shit ton of money Fika? I think is one of them actually. But really out of nowhere. And very interesting. I'M GONNA keep my eye on this one for sure. So it says eight best professional teams of Saudi Arabia region will be competing in the first tournament of the event. So I'm guessing that's And Those eight teams of Saudi Arabia, who are they? What are the best teams in Saudi Arabia? Doda. If United Radio in players, there's not. Yeah I mean it's definitely not a top tier tournament by any means, but is it even to your three? No there's. Player quality I know. I'm trying to think about their some players that might be Saudi Arabia that actually immortal but I'm not sure if they are. I don't think so. It really doesn't sound familiar. So. You'd know better than me. But I've never heard of even one team being Saudi Arabian before so. Question is if these professional teams of Saudi Arabia are allowed to take place from the other regions? That's what I'm looking at here because I know quite a few players from the Middle East that are very high Mr. so if it wasn't Saudi only, you could see some familiar faces in this tournament like for example, offer Moosh or manage or of course. Some of the players from `Nigma if they got into this Yeah. But considering `Nigma haven't announced anything about it. We're going to they're not playing it either because they didn't choose to or because they weren't allowed to I want to say the country that's produced the most players that I've consistently heard of his Jordan would you agree with that from the middle of? The most players you've heard about yeah, which does China, but I don't know if the Middle East Oh. Yeah. For sure I Jordan is the hot spot forever, and that's not that far from Saudi. Arabia? So Yeah. So who who have you heard from Jordan? Miracle. Is One. WHO's the other guy? Might just two people honestly I yep. Sore and maybe there's words we're actually. But even three would be more than any other middle. Eastern. Region because what is G. H. is Lebanon. Lebanese and then. We is. Between Syrian Romanian I consider him Syrian but I know he doesn't because I actually didn't know I thought he was just Flat out the first time I talked with him. I knew he was Middle Eastern right away. Is based on his accent. But, yeah. But yeah, it's really cool to have players in that region and We'll see what the future holds. This is out of nowhere. So I don't know how to react honestly. No, it's been so little promoted. The fact that this article came out after the tournament began it's Kinda. Interesting I, don't know that's true. I forgot it was even October now Jesus. Yeah. The. Going in some capacity, but we just don't know the stretcher.

Doc Rivers was set to take break, says he 'couldn't turn down' opportunity to coach Philadelphia 76ers

"A week after Doc rivers in the clippers parted ways the sixers introduced rivers as their new head coach yesterday docks that he wasn't willing to coach just anyone but the talent and Philly made it a tough opportunity to turn down. That was gonNA coach anybody I can tell you that I was ready to take a break and. It just depends on the team that was available, and if I thought that team in my opinion was ready to win. That excited me and when you look at these players as young players and their potential. The fact that they've had. So much success in some ways at the age is that they are already. And where I believe they can go for me is is a job you just couldn't turn down. and. That's why I'm here. Certainly a loaded roster Zach Thomas still here with us with Steven you're up first at the end of the day, which is the tougher Doda to coach. Do you think it's PG thirteen and? Or would you go in beat and Simmons for dot? To to me, it's a Koala MPG. It's a tough. It's a tough situation because of where they are in their careers. Your I if you are a wild linnet, you're a two-time champion, the two time NBA Finals MVP portly. You're a bit indifferent as a personality. You're very businesslike approach. You go out doing what you need to do as it pertains to doing your jobs your job but in terms of galvanizing the troops around you, that's not Hawaii. Limit is you search around you talk around NBA circles that's what you consistently here in the case of. Paul George Obviously Paul Georgia's one of the more talented you know two way players in the NBA. He's a star, but unfortunately in his postseason career particularly, this postseason that was not the case and if your doc rivers and you walked into that situation, you got guys the veterans they're established stars they've got set in their ways. They believe there's a certain way to do things and what have you, and as a result, it ended up being an incredible challenge particularly when you consider what doc rivers had to absorb once Leonard Arrive Kawhi Leonard Arrive. At once Paul George Wounded Forces the clippers to trade to form in order to acquire Paul George because that's the person that he wanted to play. He wanted to play with he was GonNa practice what he felt necessary use GonNa take games off in terms of game you know load management when he wanted to he was gonNA play when he wanted to during the regular season of course, always available during the players but all of these things assist to what makes life difficult for coach particularly when you have ownership making these kind of investments that's problematic in the case of New Philadelphia Yes embiid, and Ben Simmons are young. And you gotTa get a Ben Simmons to shoot the boy only attempted seven three point the entire season last year Joel embiid attempted one, hundred, seventy two. So one guy needs to get the pulse more and stop having this big backside on a on the perimeter and the other guy needs to develop a perimeter shot. So he could be much more of a formative formidable threat, but they both incredibly young they both got a lot of promise and a lot of future. Ahead of them and they able, you know they're trainable to some degree as opposed to be definitively set in their ways because they don't have any definitive set ways that has really really worked for them and I think that's the difference. That's why I'd say it's it's tougher to coach. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George at this stage particularly for Doc rivers and what he had to deal with last year with the clippers then it would be for him to coach Embiid. EMBIID. And Ben Simmons.

ESL & Dreamhack Join Forces

"ESL and dream. Hack. Apparently are joining forces. So I read they're. They're Kinda blow whatever you WANNA call their press release. And actually read it twice just to see if. I remember correctly but they don't. Talk about anything they say they're joining forces and then that's it and I'm missing something. Are we supposed to speculate? I think it's basically a merger, right? That's how I understood it. At least I remember seeing the tweet from. Was Bonnie who worked with our works with Dream Hack. Saying I just got four hundred new colleagues Something like that so I mean I is it a full company level merge or is it a tournament level merge? That's It just says ESL and dream, hack are joining forces to further accelerate our shared mission to shape the future of sports and gaming, and to create a world where everybody can truly be somebody Aka a whole lot of nothing. But obviously like. If we talk about them merging as companies or even just doesn't matter which way it goes suppose still pretty major news resell and Dream Hack especially in Doda have done a shit of tournaments So I don't know if this does that mean that's going to be less tournaments as a result or this will accelerate even further into additional terms on top of what they're already doing. Obviously we don't know specifics but. Still Big news regardless of not having any details to talk about. I mean is is there any? Is there any way that this could be a bad thing do you think? Just, trying to look at the other side? I. Guess. Since we're speculating already by what it could mean for the scene. I don't know. The classic thing with tournament organizing and anything really is that competition is supposed to make the product. Better right. So if two of the teams that were usually competing in the past for products now work together The negative outlook is that now that they just if they will do all the tournaments together, the positive outlook as they're going to have more resources into a better job, the negative outlet this going to be competition. So maybe they need to try heart I don't know. I don't see it as a bad thing instant initially at least but you never know.

Team Secret Makes it Eight-Straight at OGA Dota Pit S3

"And Onto Tournament News Cinder man does not yet just finished. Congratulations to them. It feels like it was a super fast tournament like not compared to Mega Mega was a month in this one. Felt like Mega Lull Omega. League are making league. Sorry. Reading too much chat lately. Yeah it was. It was definitely shorter I don't remember how many days whole tournament lasted, but it wasn't. It wasn't very long just a few days really at least the. I think it was just a few days. The whole thing was there. Anyway. It was. It was quick. In an absolute shocker. Secret. Won, the tournament in a three zero finals putting them on I believe eight. Consecutive Three, Oh finals. Did lose a game in the playoffs the first round. They beat VP prodigy two-to-one. Who they then faced again in the finals and they went three. Oh Five and one against them. That was their only loss. Impressive absolutely. Unbelievable. I mean I'm saying kind of sarcastically right because we're just getting used by, but it's kind of insane but they keep doing it. and. Other teams aren't catching up. It's it's amazing. They are. The true kings right now and people are saying they don't have the international competition and that's why there's no Chinese teams. There's no a well one American team they played against in one it recently, they play against G I think but is not the only team. That's a bit disrespectful to. That other NATO. Yeah This is what a toxicity comes from people like me making. Now so I don't know if there's honestly if those international competition I think they would lose more games but I, don't know if they would have lost series still I don't know how good the Chinese scene is right now. Compared to secret they're just that good. But we've talked about this before it is a, it's a huge shame. There's no ti like for secrets. Sake that is like go on like Ti's next year let's say nothing changes and they don't end up winning. It's GonNa feel so bad for them knowing that they will like if it was about now they would be in extreme advantage I feel like they would easily be the number one seed or whatever you WanNa call it going in the free runner for sure. worth noting from this time as well just to. To finish off on this VP prodigy got second. They're playing really well, and they gave secret a true challenge in I believe the first game was pretty close in the finals and the kind of got run over. The duration of the Games, wasn't that long but game one was relatively close and they also beat them in a game. They were the only team to beat them in a game. In the first series they had the quarterfinals actually one game one, and then they lost two games after obviously alliance got third and then the new Nov either we talked about last week fourth. So pretty good start for them is one of the best results Navias had lately I. Think. With this the new roster they took flight moon I believe they were called before, right? Yeah. So. Good stuff secret keeps owning. as far as. Just, following up on the Doda pit stuff. This was the first tournament to introduce the like stricter re streaming rules that valve has allowed them to. don't think any major streamer watch the Games right I can't I can't think major streamers yet. No, I don't. I wish I had more information on who streamed it at all. Because we really interested to know if anybody did it because we talked about this last week how it was. The asks from Doda pit as expected were extreme. And would have to be followed to the t obviously, and it would just

"Pages Seahawks I tried to tell him that he keeps telling me. He doesn't this one came down to the last three seconds faster. The goal line down five with a chance and cam gets stuff not even close cam though and Ross did put on a show eight total touchdowns between them but the Patriots coming up too short here is Cam Newton on getting tonight on that last play. It was a great play by. Day We had favored gain program the couple of times figure. This thing into the world to midtown but identity today. Said so confident about. Being bowed executing. Could've balanced it no looking to. Better. Better here at the end. And You know we we put ourselves in a position to win and. When you do that and just gotTa Got Senate, show you'll be. and. With that, we welcome in our quarterback Michael Vick Mike. Let's start there. Would you make that final play the game? Cam said they may have went to the where one soon times with that play but that's the play that they executed. Well. Over the last two weeks and I think he scored a touchdown early on a similar plate and even ahead of play action off of that place. So. Bet Play is a play that they can use any. Situation would be third down. Razov and has been effective. I honestly don't think it should it came down to that play. There were plays in a game I think maybe one or two cam probably would have won it back. A couple questionable, third-down caused, and which they ran the ball nate allow Camden Doda football so. Probably should've never came down to that wind play particularly, but I think cam play well play winning football. They play football on both sides and I was very impressed highly impressed but off this play will spend more plays for the doing pages in Kansas and let's really comfortable. Running a system and they're going to be a tough team to beat. Not Soon Change. They're going to beat the New England patriots. Team planning the postseason easily but at the same time. They're gonNA come situations in the game where they gonNA. have to find ways to win games like this and I'm pretty sure that they'll go back and look this film. It comes down to them being. On one and a two yard line and finding a way to get it in I. Think they was kind of shocked in that moment and just search a four play call.

Breaking Down Valve's Response to DPC

"So I wasn't sure how to approach US exactly but this may seem a little weird. We're going to read off the entire post that vowed made. We're going to split it up so that people don't get sick on my voice, of course. It's essentially read it in your normal voice or you're going to read it in your dramatic voice because if you read it a new dramatic voice, people get sick of it after one minute I what I was not planning on doing anything in my normal voice. But now that you brought it up, it would annoy people it makes me want to do it more now but regardless how you are. Valve has responded Holy Shit in valve has finally responded. To the community regarding the season that is to come. We've kind of split up between that and the Doda TV slash streaming. News. So let let's talk about the first thing which is the DPC's. So again, it's going to be a bit of a along read. We've heard a lot of the complaints re recently about the state of the DP and we agree that there's more that we should do. We want it to use this blog to walk you through what happened before what our thoughts were and what we will do going forward. Spring Twenty twenty. Once the extent of the covid nineteen pandemic became clear. We posted our plans to delay the international started pre-booking arenas for various alternative dates and countries around the world. We then began researching how to execute the international based on how different, how the different pandemic scenarios could play with the hope that we'd be able to host it as soon as possible since the spring DPC events could no longer operate anymore we started reaching out to the organizers to see what they wanted to do going forward. Some of these organizers shared their desires to run third party events to cover the period march through the end of summer. Summer Twenty twenty twenty one split this up between you and You keep going. I'll do the summer twenty, twenty, do the rest. Sorry Twenty twenty as we approached the middle of the summer, the volatility of the pandemic had grown significantly. We became very concerned about the impact it would have on future deep-sea events and the International. The global situation meant that cross regional play would be unlikely for a period of time and we have since seen scenarios globally and other competitions where teams from certain countries had to be excluded after qualifying do abrupt travel restrictions and complications. Americans can't go anywhere syndrome unless it's Ukraine Hanley while we had that was not part of the quote just to let you guys. Inter and you're. Not The competent then I would love under sprinkle in a little couple things like that just to spice it up you know but anyway. While we had already assumed that having a cry for the events was not in the cars we wanted to at least have confidence able to bring all teams together across region competition. We felt that was a very important component of how we allocate DC points for the International. We were also unsure of when the international itself would happen and given the significant lead time needed. The increase spread and the virus made harder to model out a timeframe with confidence. The potential of the season as narrative feeling to detach from the path towards the international was negative for us doing that would also necessitate a DP point decay system, which in and of itself isn't a bad thing but having to abruptly introduced decay midseason if the landscape changes has some additional downsides. Furthermore, we had also received some feedback from a couple of or that were either worried about the quality of the broadcast being lower or reluctant to want to operate GPC events in the fall altogether while neither the Cross region competition nor the relative distance to the international or absolute requirements. We felt the DPC as both the function of the international, and also as a coherent product for fans would be better served by holding off on them for. Now given that our plan was that we'd make the upcoming months open and clear for other leagues and Events to operate. Our approach historically has been to want third party tournus be able to exist outside of the international though the degree of that has been fluid over the years demands from fans and players for more structured circuits to lead to increased. Our hope was that we could both achieve a better and more coherent relationship between DC and TI. By approaching it this way as well as still along for third party events to have an impact with the overall Anders Zolt for fans still being that, there would be entertaining content to watch. In the fall. I'll give you this parrot this last section center in the you're not paying attention or you want me to read everything still you don't want them finish talking about this one I mean, do you want to break it up that way? That's fine as well as I guess, we should read the next. Okay. Moving forward. Soon. After we announced that there were not immediately proceeding that we were not immediately proceeding with GPS planned we received a lot of negative feedback from fans. We think that a lot of the points that were raised were reasonable criticisms toward us especially because we did not communicate what our intentions were and what they could expect in the future. that it doesn't say there guys. For this upcoming competitive season, there are going to be at least four third party events and leaks in the EU CIS, three in China and a few others that are still in the preliminary planning stages and are not able to commit at this time. However, there is still going to be a lot of teams, Casas organizers and fans around the world that are not going to be meaningfully served based on the current trajectory, and that is our fault for not pushing on those and supporting them enough. With that in mind, we started reaching out to many more tournament organizers to offer help and financial support in order to be able to create increased coverage globally for the remainder of the year we expect that these eventually gradually announced over the remaining season as they as soon as they are ready to communicate to fans and teams. And other feedback we got from players as well as fans was wanting more clarity in what we were thinking where the likely dates for deep-sea and tied to resume. Our look right now is that we're anticipating the start of the in the first month or two of twenty twenty one. Our hope is that by the end by the time, the first deep-sea leak concludes travel limitations will be more predictable. Spontaneous restrictions will be less likely this allowing for majors with Cross region competition happen where also operating under the assumption that the most likely outcome is for the International to happen in Stockholm in August twenty, twenty one. while. We have other countries backups. We recognize that fans would be upset if we moved to another location if the time savings

"If you improve tons of things in your game and you consider Doda three, and then people are disappointed, because it's not something insanely new. Like how new does it need to be to be two three? That's no, that's a. that's a really. I never really thought of from that perspective. I mean the issue, so if it's Doda three its own client to different game. You can't call it. A three just takes over with Doda to is right not. Because then it's not really a three D. C. battlefields that come with every fucking year just. The cannibalize each other sure, but they don't lower take over the client. There's separate feel like it's different when it's a free to play game like then the perspective is different, right? In, battlefield to 'CAUSE, they're pay to play games so whenever they make a new one it's. To make profits so people by the game right, but if you have a free to play game, and you upgraded a lot. You could just say it's the like. Doda has now gone and now it's Doda three. Isn't that what fortnight with fortnight to it's just? It's the same client. Now's just fortnight to, or did they just call it that and it was a patent. Just the season seasonal change a little different, because they actually make kind of called it fortnight to though, didn't they? Community did I could be saying stupid stuff here I'm not trying to by your logic than. Dodo reborn was Doda three. In some respects you could have. An extent, yeah! Yeah Technically have called Dodo three. It changed the game a lot. No I'm not saying it didn't. Matter I'm just holding onto this old like mentality that it just needs to be a new game to be called a new game right all I'm thinking is from the perspective of what helps game the most and I think something like that generates a lot of Hyena what? So you come out with Doda three, it's exactly the same as Doda to accept tournament..

So there's a new game that Doda. Assuming the creators of Doda to make its valve is that who did those valve valve? Yeah, so valve release this new card game or the announced. It anyway called artifact. And it's pretty hilarious. Because there was this video that was uploaded because it, the big release happened in the bunch of people in the audience. In as soon as they announced, it was game from Valve in the name artifacts came up on the screen, and everyone started getting really excited and Independent said the card game and everyone's like. started getting really upset, but I personally don't know a whole lot about it. Do you know much about it trailer? Honestly I've seen the the teaser trailer far. Beyond. Checked to see if it was missing anything. I was not the only thing that's that's right. There is the teaser all we know is. It's a Doda best card game I'm not set on. It's going to be released in two thousand thirteen. Okay. So many games can be good.

"How what they looked like. So it was just like looking at it going like, well, I need another kung. I think but I don't know which one of these is Concha out there and. Can't you can't just click on the unit in Doda under lords to have it pop up that says this is what it's called. Yeah. The relies like that. Yeah. So that was the thing of not knowing what any Doda characters look like just like all right fucking. I think I have one of these really if you, if you're like you can open up the in game Wicky that shows everything, but that you have to worry about the round place. Totally like it's stuff that, like I can navigate it now as having played, you know, hundred games of auto chess, or whatever, like I can I'll still run into issues like with origins where I don't know, the names of the characters, but I know they're like, equivalents where, I'll be like, okay, what's the last like hunter six hunters only have five and I can pull up the chart and find it and it's easier for me, but that's just because I put so much time into it, that there's just seems like could be they could do better at kind of beginning people onto that ramp. I guess while we're on all just finish up by saying about like. Under lord. Is it does something different than every other auto chess clone? I've seen which I appreciate like you get to choose which after the neutral rounds. So you have a little, there's a little less our Angie there, because I in mobile and original, it's like, oh, I have.

"And was like, hey, I'm the king now while they're that like people were into here's of north, right? Yeah. That that was kind of because Doda to hadn't happened yet. Okay. Like oh newer. Yeah. Newer his game with my friends who played three Doda played for a long time. A bunch of. I always forget that that that there was a time before Doda too. It seems a turtle. Yeah. That was a there was another. Here's a storm. I'm talking about before. All this. It was here was a newer. And there was another one L. League of legends. Yeah. That's been around for a while that was back in the days when I think people kind of cloud on league early on to Tokyo. I can't think of any other got big smile. The biggest might has like a good solid steady audience all of that's also kind of an action game. Yeah. I'll be curious to see. I would love to know. If like, I think I've saying this yesterday is like if on any kind of bar chart or graph or anything of active users on fortnight if they saw any kind of dip because of apex like if there was any any notice did they notice it all from a numbers perspective. Or is it just like if we look only twitch with, you know, but like it's kind of it's kind of unreliable, but at the same time, you know, if if I'm like, you know sixteen and I'm really into fortnight because my favorite streamers play it. Sure. And there's only playing this game. I'm to check it out. It's free guarantee. You there was at least a dip because I I was on playing will early wondering the same thing was like maybe Wednesday after launched or something, and we hopped on twitch just to look at the numbers. And for the first time I've ever seen fortnight was under a hundred K viewers, right? Which is just like that's something you can look at and be like, I've never seen this happen. So, but I I guess how much of that is because the big streamers that kinda made their bones plan fortnight are maybe being paid to play packs standing they only paid the first day. They have all been playing it because games like, yeah. Then that same bet on some level. If I was on that grind. I would fucking love for another good ask game to come on all stream something else. And he was like I've been playing this game for like ten hours a day. Just because I like it, and it's different. I just super randomly clicked. Into northern lions stream yesterday before he was playing something else. And like first thing I saw in chat was like, dude. This isn't apex. That's what people wanna see right now. Yeah. Now is not this is not really indicative because that what's it called the twitch rivals tournament is happening. I think right now as we speak. Yeah. But right now four-night is at ninety nine thousand viewers apex is at five hundred sixty eight. Yeah. I've seen apex bouncing between around around three hundred thousand kind of was more like the average actual number. The like I think for me tournament number GATT is it's fun ass. Fucking. Free. It's fun. It works. Well it plays. Well, it's not super broken. It just hits enough of those. Things that you want from variety. It's just the mix of heroes, and the fact that they move the hot loot zones around and like just I've never had a match this, exactly. Can back into a match like that down time between matches like remarkably short. And then like, you know, the story I think over the last few weeks is really picked up just like, hey video game stocks are taking a fucking beating. And like you see a lot of financial analysts like fortnight's fucking everybody..

"Like, you know, there are people at valve know, how to balance games, I feel like I dote agai, first and foremost. Sure. But like, you know, I'm sure he has some ideas some other people there they've been bouncing to and other games like that wherever imbalances. That's a job people people. Do it. You can hire people to do. It's not necessarily the end of the world if you originally designer, but the second part of the question if ice frogs and left Dodi, I think that'd be huge deal like that. He is and has been Doda forever. Like, do you? That ice fog has always been the same person. Do you feel like that was secret enough for long enough to where I guess it at some point? They did come out and say, here's who ice fog is right or have never they have never said. Open documents that have kind of traced backwards to get kind of like a ninety five percent confirmation on. It is. And you know, Seh Toshi associate con. At this point. It's kind of unclear if he is the sole balanced person. If it's so tight around there that don't even know if he's in office all the time like. But it still feels like the ice frog approach things, which is completely break it and rebuild it every major patch rather than like just constantly trying to buff in Nerf. It's like, no we're going to completely change. What this hero like swing for the fences and make and then afterwards, and we just yeah. And I think that like there's there's few. There's very few games that are tied to a person. And it matters. I think the ones. In there is for Doda and Kajima for metal gear are kind of the standout examples. They are. But I think they're two different things like ice frog is associated with the literal creation of the thing..

You can't you can't miss that. Big play in that moment into our point. I get it fans will be like, well, it could happen. It could've didn't it happened when you could have closed the game. And let me tell you something Twenty-three knew he was running attack if he'll get there. There's probably a touchdown catches it. So he's running to cover. You saw on the sideline. He knew exactly what he was doing. And he got away with it was in a bad position goes out of position. So you understood being out of phase of the deficit back. I can't look back though. So he never knew. Well, the ball was expected. Drew Brees to get the ball there on time, and it will be a bang bang plate. Wasn't you watch? He freezes. He goes t- Redstone with. Okay.
