Default Dota 2

Fun game.

I tend to play mostly draft formats and don't really stick to one hero, but favorite heros are Witch Doctor, Anti-Mage, Necrophos, Dark Seer, Sand King.

Ranked queues are now coming out, should be interesting to see how that works and if it will be fun or not.

Haven't tried the new spirit heroes yet.

Who else plays?

sigmasquared here... and I have like 500-600 games played. Not playing very much at the moment as I'm trying to knock out Witcher 2 and have a move coming up, though.

Also: ranked matchmaking, finally. Played one with friends and lost. The new skelly king minigame is pretty fun actually.

I'm 5-0 now in solo queue ranked matchmaking. Had to put MLG Champion Artour "Arteezy" Babaev in his place and put Merlini's 5 stack down.

#StartedFromTheBottom
Sounds like you're on the #RoadToTI4

MLG had some really fun games to watch. Good memories.

the /10 ranked doesn't actualyl determine your mmr. your mmr is already there, it just calibrates the variance around it
