I'd say Half Life 3 has about as much of a chance as Dota 3 does at ever being made.

If Brad is thinking about going, I hope he's bought the event tickets already! Otherwise he'd have to get them off a scraper, I guess?

Oh no... No...

Does this video have Drew being flabbergasted while Jeff silently says no with his head, only speaking up to shit on Dota? Because that's the only way that I'll accept any Dota content on this website about wrestling and nacho cheese.

Brad was cured and now Ben is enabling Brad's return to his dark addiction.

So wait, is it only possible to get those skins by constantly gambling chests until you get one?

While I don't think I'd necessarily watch something like Dota, I do miss the general idea of Daily DOTA and would watch it with occasional rotating games. This was kind of a fun reminder of those things.

Daily Dota was a lot like how I watch soccer, I don't really care for it but if it's on and I have someone that does care for it with me I'll watch it.

Jeff's commentary makes this surprisingly entertaining for a video of them just opening Dota 2 stuff.

Dota is such a scam it's not even funny, it's just like 200 loot boxes russian-nesting-dolled together inside a bad clicker.

I've never played Dota, but I love watching these guys play things they are passionate about. I wouldn't mind some more Brad/Ben Dota content actually.

Eh, he's in a unique position and could probably get tix for free any time if he really wanted to.

However you can tell Brad hasn't kept up with dotas pro scene, as he stated, in a while. Still tho, this is the time of year to get back into it. TI Hype!

What other video game scam allows you to play the entire game for free?

Every Videogame scam does that. That's the hook of videogame scams.

Well meaning psychologists understand behavior, and now every marketing vampire knows exactly how to milk all the money they want out of you.

I'm all about this content.

I would also love a Dota feature maybe once a month or so, it was always pretty chill.

Why not bring back Dota 2? Ben and Brad like it, and it's content some of us would like.
