What happened to Monday's Daily Dota?

Posted by Worcanna

@dg_nick: I would think "Jetlag and E3"

STOP THE DOTA

FREE YOUR MIND

So the re-picked Naga, is that a bug or is it an intentional thing? Cause that sounds BS.

@Crispy: must have such diesel legs having to carry around all that weight!

The E3 coverage was great but I was missing The Daily Dota ;_;

Edited by Crispy

@autumn_thunder: Just crazy, crazy coincidence; the hero is placed back into the selection pool upon repick (so that other players can pick it).

@grelik: More like, I feel sorry for the team... they have to carry me through my throw-fu (RAPIERS FOR EVERYONE)!

DOTAS IS BACK

Why are they still playing this?

It's painful to watch Brad play, he's just sooooo bad.

Managed to catch the last five minutes live, now to find out how things got there.

I feel you, duder. Those 3 hours from Monday were a relief. I really needed my daily Daily Dota fix.

I have a crazy idea: don't fucking watch him play if you don't like it. Bewildering, I know. But maybe, just maybe, it may work.

@joeyravn: Yeah you tell that guy for having an opinion!

I would have genuinely missed this were E3 not so mad crazy this year.

As it is, I'm very glad to have it back. Monday's feature-length was a relief, even if it didn't all go to plan. I truly love this feature for its general Dota-ness, its fun chat between the players, and the great mix of community guys and guest stars who feature on the show.

wow i'm surprised they pulled this around for a win, i thought for sure it was going to be a loss.

Brad, whenever you start with branches you should focus on getting the wand to free up space. Also, when you're facing an invis like the bounty hunter, you should spring for sentry wards. At 200, you could have easily afforded them, and made that money back in the first kill.

That was a pretty tight game - shame about the DCing at the end. Could've gone either way, but I reckon you guys would've won anyway.

To @brad you're getting better. I think you'd improve your game a lot more if you weren't as cautious as you are - jumping in and throwing a spell doesn't necesarilly mean you want to back off again.

Yeah, I feel that being overly cautious can at times be almost as much of a detriment to your team as the gung-ho dude that jumps in 1v5 all the time. I have a tendency to be cautious myself, but one kind of needs to get over it and start committing to fights or else your team is often fighting without the full support of one of their players.

Also, not that Brad will ever read this, but start using those ultimates. Unless you're a Tide hunter or Magnus and need them for initiation you should be throwing ults when you can in teamfights (and if it's not a long cooldown ult, even in regular skirmishes). I feel it's better to waste a few than never use them at all because you're waiting for an "ideal" scenario to appear.

I think he was trying to say:

"Thank you for this segment Brad. I enjoy watching you play DOTA with these fun characters. There are times I am frustrated by the areas of your dota play that could use improvement, but you are slowly doing better."

Posted by Puaru

@aquacadet: Yeah, see, this guy knows what I'm talking about. Glad he was here to translate for me.

I like these too much

Edited by Osaladin

Brad is just way too timid. He's afraid to get involved in team fights and it ends with him just doing nothing, clicking around the same area while his team could use his help.

And before anyone jumps all over my shit, Brad is posting these videos, we're watching them, critiquing his play in no way means I hate Bradley and think this is a stupid feature. I love watching the gang play.

Is there a way we could be watching the replay of the match in the Dota client?

Often times I think that the burden of being player and broadcaster splits Brad's attention during game (a task I can't imagine is easy to do). I've watched the whole series of these videos and often want to click over to watch the other lanes to see what's happening there.

I know that this is content for the site, but being able to get the "enhanced" experience by having personal control of the camera while listening to the guys chat would be awesome

Posted by Geralt

To be fair, nobodies want the internet to witness their suckiness. Maybe that is where the too cautious approach stems from.

No DOTA today, Scoops has gone away
Shagbark stands forlorn, a symbol of no spawn

No DOTA today, it seems a common sight
With E3 Passing by, don't know the reason why

How could they know
Just what this message means?
The end of black holes, the end of all gankings

Posted by Wr8h

@crispy: Thank you, much appreciated

brad's audio is hurting my ears :(
