Drew has opened up and become more vocal on the podcast since the day Alex was there before E3. Alex did a hell of a job getting him to open up, and it is obviously all the better.

Wow, Valve just announced that the Dota International is gonna be on ESPN2/3— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) July 17, 2014
This is pretty damn huge news. The International has the largest prize pool in gaming history, and a higher prize pool than just about every singles sporting event out there. The fact that Valve was able to get this on a mainstream platform is a huge boon to the genre.
The time for hype is almost here.
Terrible decision is they do not release something at the same time. Off screen footage will be recorded by someone there, and it will be up on the internet for everyone to judge. It will give the game some pretty poor press from the start if that recording is lackluster in any way.
