  • advertisment is only way how to make game/esports popular and profit on it. just look at sporst in tv, watching are free, advertisment pays it all. I dont know how long it will last until idiots from valve and other esport killing companies realize this. In the worst scenerio if they would ask micropayment per match, for example watching match for 10-50 cents, it would be not killing esport as much as it is now when u have to pay 5-8 euros for tournament where u will see only fckin 2 or 3 matches. Of course i am talking about dotatv ads not ingame.
    you can ban me for telling the truth, but rely i will be back

    • I would not like advertisment when playing, but when watching a game its ok. There is a great place for ads - quick buy section, it can be a foreground on graphs(exp/gold etc). If that would make watching tournaments cheaper(or no cost at all) that is great.

      • I cant believe the huge oversight here...

        What is the difference between streams and dotaTV?

        One is free the other is not!

        People that buy tickets are directly supporting the tournament and supporters (depending on revenue model). There should be no ads at all if you buy a ticket.

        How ever, I completely agree with advertising if dotaTV had a free-view option.

        IMHO the paywall is quite excessive (if most of the tickets did not come with tournament items), but it is doing the exact job that ads would do, except with a far higher ROI. It would really suck having to pay to view ads.

          The thread was opened in 2011, there were no tickets back then and dotatv was barely half done. Your opinion on the ppv vs ads is right, its logical, if you decide to pay you shouldnt see any ads. I doubt valve/tournament organizers would include both, paying wouldnt be attractive anymore. Still, i will edit your opinion in the OP, just to be sure^^
