I got SS on this when the Ursa glitch was still working. Kind of a boring event though except I got a lot of mythicals from it.

What kind of animal does a Jadehoof come from? And can Jadehooves be made into Jello, like regular hooves?

Really enjoyed this event

TA can be a fun hero to play. Give her a shot. Although I just played a Year Beast 2500 ingot fight with randoms and one decided to play her, and while TA was last standing, she wasn't doing much. And I won't even mention the Clinkz who was running around invisible.

Would this still be a "Brad" feature if the point-of-view were a different player? Because in this, for example, Brad was just right-clicking as Sniper for 35 minutes, while the other people were doing all the weird shit with consumable items bought from the shop, and managing ability cooldowns and whatnot. Still kinda boring, but maybe slightly more interesting to watch than Sniper right-clicking.

Also in like every proper Dota 2 game, most of the big plays are Crispy or some special guest, which the video doesn't record because we're watching Brad farm or run away from teamfights for no reason.

I don't mind Brad doing this feature, but it might be a nice change of pace if we could see other people's perspectives while still hearing all of them talk.

I agree. It would be cool to watch Crispy some time. He makes some pretty big plays that often we only experience through the voice chat. With the addition of coaching now maybe Brad could roll as a coach some time and provide commentary for the game that way (just for some variety).

So this is what a WoW 5-man raid would look like in 3/4 topdown view haha

@bisonhero:

Step 1: Download the video.

Step 2: Open the replay in Dota 2.

Step 3: Press play on the video and the replay at the same time.

Step 4: Enjoy. :D

If you want it to be a little more precise, you can stagger them at the beginning, pause the one that's further ahead, unpausing at the moment the other catches up, to sync it.

DOTA 2's The Year Beast is like a really half-assed Monster Hunter.

Man I'm getting flashbacks from my WoW raiding years.

Posted by Christoffer

Never tried this mode. I was sorely dissapointed by the grindiness of Wraith Night and this looked even more grindy. But I'm a little bummed I didn't even try it once. Oh well, next year maybe.

This. Dota 2 has come full circle and become a Blizzard game with this event. There's nothing that says "World of Warcraft" to me more than a screen full of nonsensical overlapping particle effects and a group of dead serious guys screaming things like "GOLEMS!" and "TAIL TAIL TAIL TAIL TAIL"

Don't worry, man. It's still going, you have another chance.

@bisonhero: Brad really needs to actually team fight and not be so cowardly.

Posted by Chaossebba

So this is the new World of Warcraft boss, Year Beast - we also introduced cross faction raiding as we see a Night Elf and Dwarf Hunter, Undead Warrior, Human Warlock and Shadow Priest raid it

What's a Redhoof? Are you doing drugs young man?

Edited by Hassun

Watching these hopeless addicts indulge in their most base desires scares me.

Yet I keep watching Daily DotA and now I am watching this as well...

Team@brad!

You must find... The Jade Monkey!

Edited by Kubertus

rip jadehoof dreams

Edited by paulunga

Wow, this looks boring as fuck. People are saying raid bosses in WoW were like this? Thank god I didn't waste my time with that game.

Posted by Minalear

@paulunga: Watching it is pretty boring, but anything can be made enjoyable if you're doing it with a large group of friends.

Edited by paulunga

@minalear: That's true. I've played some pretty shitty games at private LANs and had a blast.
