Brian “BananaSlamJamma” Canavan has two options: master DOTA 2 and follow his dream, or finish out his degree in biomedical engineering and help the world. He can’t do both.
FiercE was the sort of person the DOTA community needs more of: someone who wanted to help others learn how to have fun with the game.
I’ve tried watching DOTA 2 online. I’ve tried playing it. It just wasn’t for me. Going to a big pro event changed that.
I’ve had a bad losing streak going in League of Legends the past few nights, which made me realize a fundamental truth about the game and others like it: they’re a lot less fun when you’re not on the winning team. Uniquely so, I mean. »

The "courier" is a specific type of ally minion in Dota 2: one that carries stuff to you when you're too busy fighting in lane to make that tiresome trek back to your base. »
On March 11, a pro DOTA 2 game in the Star Ladder Europe tournament (between Team Secret and DUZA Gaming) suffered from connectivity issues, so much so that two of Team Secret's five players were disconnected.
