  • [Suggestion] Unlimited and/or team based subscriptions

    I enjoy watching top level DotA. However, I am less interested in specific tournaments, and more interested in specific teams/players. E.g, who doesn't like following teams like nth or fnatic to see what crazy teams they'll run.

    I would like to spend money to support competitive DotA, but I can't justify spending $5 for a tournament just because I'm interested in only a handful of games the tournament offers, and I can easily get those from a stream. Even though I'd prefer to watch in-game.

    What would interest me, and I'm assuming I'm not the only one, would be a subscription model. Pay $X a month for unlimited access to to all tournaments. Barring the economic feasibility of an unlimited model, it would be fantastic if people could support their favourite teams, and tournaments at the same time. Similar to the unlimited model I proposed, allow people to "subscribe" to teams, and divvy up the proceeds of those subscriptions between the teams and the tournaments.

    In summary:
    A) Let people pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to all, or a number of tournaments.
    B) Let people pay a monthly fee for unlimited access to all competitive games that feature a specific team.
