    Thoughts?

    At least they're fixing it now. You have to keep in mind that this is the first time they could even expect to have over 10k people watching through the in game client? I don't know I am just thinking outloud. The in game spectator hasn't been stress tested since TI2 lol. Hopefully this is the only day of TI3 that has this problem.

    Prediction: It was some abstract bug/problem that was not anticipated because they assumed the servers would work fine from TI2.... thats the best I got lol

          I think everyone who bought a Compendium wants a compensation. We were promised to be able to watch the Qualifiers in-game and that we could have a chance to win items with it, now we can't even watch the game in DotaTV.

              "You have to keep in mind that this is the first time they could even expect to have over 10k people watching through the in game client."

              Are you nuts? TI2 had way higher amounts... Also a proper analyst could have easily expected this number of spectators. They even sold compendiums to make better judgements. Here's a simple calc:

              1911490 - 1600000 = 311490 USD for compendium sales. So divide by 10 USD,you get 31149 people who bought a compendium. YOu can expect every last one of them to watch all the games, so you are at least estimating 32k people watching every game now. Let's then say that at least that number times 2.75 watches the games for free, so we are estimating at least ~85k viewers, which is suprinsingly accurate when you watch the number of the spectators of the first 2 games (around 65k) and count in the tens of thousands of people who cant spectate the game now. As these are the first games and they are pretty early where many EU people are still working I'd even say that the number of specs will probably grow above 100k in later games and stages of the tournament. Valve should have at least planned with 150k viewers + reserve (like 50%) to be safe. This is just ridiculous

                Not to mention, the Compendiums are bugged pretty hard...the Logos for the teams I predicted disappeared and yet the other selections are not locked in visually from my end...even though the timer says 00:00:00.
                I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.

                  Dazz the money contributed is 2.50 not 10$ to the prize pool. So its 1.9 - 1.6 million divided by 2.5 = the number of sold compendiums trust me I know I am just saying maybe they thought it was working perfectly and there is just some technical difficulties going on who knows what it is?

                    Lol okay mate, that makes it even worse for Valve. So 125k people bought a compendium and at half that number their DotaTV stops working. Seriously, dafuq? We can expect to see 200k+ viewers easily then in the future, probably ValveHQ gonna explode then

                          I'm asking to myself the utility of this forum, It is supposed to be the official beta forum and Valve never communicates with us on it...

                            What should i do with this compendium? Couldn't even connect to that spectator server.
                            Remove mute system NOW
                            If someone's feelings are hurt, he can already mute the offending player with 2 clicks.
                            Auto mute will be this game's downfall if it stays.

                              Judging by reading your first 3 words I suppose you deserved that ban. Don't go mad people... keep calm and wait, that's only the first day, lots of days remaining, I know valve is having lots of fails in the lasts days but just be polite, insulting goes anywhere, well maybe to a ban queue.
