Naaah, I'm gonna stick with S2's 5k prize pool.
How much you wanna bet Valve never runs a tournament for this much money again.
I bet a million bucks
this is such great news! this prizepool shows that valve will put a lot of effort and money into making this a succesfull and great game! and that there will be many awesome doat 2 tournaments comming
Bye Bye hon. This Publishere here cant even communicate with the community and the makey such a strong marketing tournement. On every page and every forum you will read this nice massege. See you soon dota!
Riot Games INSTANTLY locking and deleting all threads like this on the LoL forums.
The usual **** they pull.
probably the smartest thing any company has ever done. there gonna have so many viewers on the stream of this tournament the day dota 2 is released millions of people will be in line to get it.
I too get really excited when the Super Bowl comes around, thinking about all those endorsement deals I could get... I just gotta win the Super Bowl! SO AWESOME
You can no longer say:
Defense of the Ancients
Heroes of Newerth
or any variation of those on the League of Legends forums!!
Because this gets people who are on the fence about how it will compete (like me) to say, "holy hell, they just did more than HoN has done since release when its still in beta." This greatly implies that this will indeed be a great competitive game, and the company is willing to man up and truly get behind it. We also do not know what else they have planned, gamescon has and 80k tourny dealing with dota2, there may be more.
Wonder how the s2 people will address this in the podcast tonight. They said about a month ago that they are working on something that will revolutionize gaming. A good answer to this would be to give some details about what that is.
@sparkhawk, s2 probably think that this free to play bullshit is revolutionizing -.-
