What do you think about Brad's "Daily Dota" Content?
I get that there aren't many games coming out now, so I don't think the argument of "If he has so much disposable time, can't he do something else?" holds up much.
Personally, I'd rather see some more Bombastica stuff or just random/old stuff like Bioforge.
If I wanted to watch Dota streams, I'd be on Twitch more.
Also, Dota ain't really my bag...It's like if I started up daily content just to watch dungeon runs in WoW. I'd enjoy it, sure. But not many others would...
I watch it occasionally. I'm a LoL fan myself and would prefer it if they did LoL because I think it has cleaner graphics that would pop better in the stream, but DOTA2's fine. It has the same niche as reality TV for the site: content that is quickly produced which a sizable chunk of the viewers enjoy. (I wonder how the Daily DOTA's apparent 45% viewing rate compares to other content they put up.)
I still don't understand why people watch it. It doesn't really matter what game he's playing to be honest cause I'd imagine very few of the people who watch it are actually watching it for DotA as there are many, many more and better places to get it. People who watch it I guess are just watching it because its Brad, he could be doing LoL or HoN or Sc2 and the viewership would probably be the same.
I love DotA but I have my hands full playing it and watching the tons of content that comes out in the form of tournaments, and when I decide to actually watch a player stream the last thing I want to watch is someone who is equal in skill to me.
@thesoutherndandy- I don't understand why LoL people say this, especially since half the heroes in LoL are just copycats of heroes that originated in DotA. I mean we have a dude who can summon trees that he can control, teleport all over the map on a 20 second cool, and launch his ultimate which hits 20+ units globally. We have a guy who spawns a blackhole. We have a guy who is actually up to 5 guys once he hits a certain level and buys one item. We have a guy who can steal ANY spell in the game from any guy on the opposite team. There's a lot of reason LoL people don't like dotA, but calling the heroes boring compared to LoL heroes who all follow the same pattern doesn't really make any sense.
