    I'm proud to say I've finally stepped away from this game for good, the abysmal matchmaking due to Aus server being unpopular as **** played a part. Game is dying and rapidly, the reign of mobas has come and gone.

    The way u said it made me think the game itself was dying. But the steam population charts trend seems to be gaining players over time

    "game is dying and rapidly" ahahahahaha this is the best thing I've read in a while. Where did you get this copy pasta from?

    Also, when was there a "reign of mobas"? I would have thought it was the reign of zombie-survival-early access-take your money and run, type games

    When was there a reign of mobas you ask?

    When every free to play coming out was a Moba? Trying to throw Dota/League off their throne. You serious bro? There was many many articles stating that very headline 3-4 years back.

    All you have to do is look at steam charts compare 2015/16.

    You have to be deluded to not think otherwise.

    The game is at its retention phase which means while theres no new players playing (or not enough to cover the people leaving) the game is dying mate. Dota is focused on ensuring the player base doesn't 'dip' any more and while they can try, people have moved on. Even league is dying and has no where near the numbers it had.

    Meh I'll just park it here, I'll be back in a year proving my point.

    Unless Valve does something really revolutionary the game will die, granted I don't think they will let it die out completely I mean look at CS but the game is far faar past its peak it has plateaued for quite a while and now the numbers just keep dropping.

    The difference between CS and Dota is CS is a pickup and play game where with DOTA you actually have to invest alot of time to be competitive and stay there which is why I think the numbers will drop even more than CS

    yeah nah the game wont die in a year, it still has a good player count. Itll slowly die over the next 3-4 years or so, even then pro play will prob be popular for a while.

    I'd estimate average player counter to be around 350,000 this time next year tbh

    You're assuming here that with the release of Artifact and/or further quality of life changes that Valve make in the future, won't drive up the player base.

    You're assuming the game won't see a resurgence with all the changes made to the pro circuit.

    I think Valve should consider hiring a business analyst like you, when you clearly have such definitive insight lol

    artifact is a seperate game from dota so its not really relevant. Yeah those changes bring in small bumps but nothing long lasting, look at the link i posted above. You can see the player base is slowly declining. March 2017 had a 540k average and march 2018 had a 440k average.

    Bro how many times has DOTA had big updates which I'm sure they even thought would bump up player numbers in the last 18 months?

    No matter what Valve tries the numbers keep dropping, sure there will be a spike around TI, there always is. I get you love Dota I did too but nothing lasts forever accept that man and stop being so butthurt.

    People are finding better ways to scratch their gaming itch rather than the mental slog Dota is

    Theres also not much left of an untapped playerbase to tap into so whatever Valve does its not enough to compensate the long term players who are dropping like flies cause they've had enough - simply put.

    I just want to take a moment to say **** TECHIES.

    I was 6 games deep into my 10 calibration games, I was playing with Legends and Archons and performing well in my usual positions of offlane and support. I think I only had 1 loss at out of my 6 games at that point. Games 7 comes around and a teammate picks techies, proceeds to show up in lane and feed several times, then goes to the jungle and farms and achieves nothing and then says "It doesn't matter if I die because I'm slowing down the game for Spectre"
    We then proceeded to get steamrolled by a fed Troll.
    Next game was a very similar situation except the Techies didn't feed early, he just didn't put down any decent mines. All purely defensive

    what do you think the chances of the current EG on the TI8?

  21. Post
    In theory EG have a lot of potential to do well at TI8. Fly and S4 and both good players who are superior additions to the team.

    In actuality, I'd be surprised if they get to the semis.

    Pretty much my thoughts as well.
    I think S4 is one of the greatest of all time, but DOTA is so much more than individual skill.
