  • Ti3 was tampered with.

    Just saying, I think with the compendium going on, the game being released, and the predictions watching the game closesly. I have a feeling that some of the compendium money also went to trying to make the internationals more spontaneous and bigger than the last. With odd picks, weird combos, odd mistakes, big throws, and weird setup situations I feel the semi finals and grand finals were not 100% serious. I think a good marketing trick was done here to get people into the game or to bring more money into it. Like the amount of heros picks that were not predicted.

        BAD person is someone who only think that he/she is a pro and others are noob and then blame the Matchmaking challenge.
        GOOD person is someone who accept the Matchmaking challenge and succeeded getting a teamwork in his/her team

          alot of people are talking about this and
          there was also a closed thread http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=101974&p=696072

          If you watch the Team Pod cams they were very serious.
          I remember when Puppey looked like he was yelling during one of the games in grand finals...
          Yes i watched the crowd cam, the game, and the team cams.
          The picks and predictions were a bit fishy though, but i still dont think its rigged.

          I remember during the live broadcasting with bruno, 2gd, and them were talking...
          they mentioned that there are only a few heroes the players mastered and are able to pick in the international pool...

            The first two games were joke drafts seriously. First Na'vi pick a team without a single hard carry and a bunch of useless gankers that had no potential in team fights or chasing then Alliacne draft equally as poor in the 2nd game.

            Yeh it smells fishy.
            Also Wr deny on aegis with tongfu (although i think this was due to pressure / stress)

            Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

                  Well... now I know you can't please everyone, but THIS is a new one... I hope this is just a troll, not a real paranoia thread...
                  I wonder what they'll say about TI4 ? "Hey, you noticed that they never showed Dendi's face ? He always had a cap and sun glasses on and he suddenly had a beard ? Or the camera showed him at weird angles where his face was covered or other people were blocking the camera's view; also he was the only Na'Vi that wasn't interviewd. It's not him, that's why Na'Vi lost; You can tell by the way he last hits too... Dendi was killed by EG before they got here and now the officials are trying to cover it up so that TI4 doesn't get canceled". please please please .... I so hope they'll say something like this...

                    This is bull. i was watching the player cams all through the last day, they were all very serious, and when Wr denied the aegis in the last orange match you could SEE the team become flustered. That deny cost that team hundreds of thousands of dollars, there is no way that was done as some sort of rigged match.

                      The concept that things were thrown is an easy sell. Get non-disclosure agreements on top players with a secret split of the prize pool in exchange for marketing and promo behavior. With NDA's it's both legal and hard as hell to truly uncover.

                      The real trick to this is that there needs to be a player who does an interview insinuating that, then I remembered that this topic isn't really news worthy.

                      Take that for what you will.

                        No one is trying anything on you.
                        You watch Dota leagues for fun.
                        They win real money.
                        No one is scamming anyone.

                        If you favorite team lost, don't blame the whole world.
                        This is how Dota2 games should look like! Game 1_Game 2_Game 3_Game 4_Game 5_Game 6
