I couldn't care less about Dota 2, but participating in the chat is always a good time. You duders are never not hilarious.
The chat is way too much for me, I can't handle it. It's uncivilized.
If it really is true that this'll go away once everybody's back in the office and content is coming at a more steady pace, then I don't have a problem with it. But it still begs the question, what if this time was put towards exploring games that wouldn't get air time on the site any other way. If Patrick starts making less content, that'll be a huge hit to most if not all indie coverage on the site.
