So I willingly trust you with my life and his. I want to lift my future husband up to you this weekend Lord.
Video Games Dota 2 tournament showed me the future of esports The three-day event laid out why competitive gaming is in the future of entertainment, though the contest wasn't without its flaws. I usually have a job to do: Running about, doing interviews and meeting executives to hear them talk about the future of competitive gaming.
Dota 2 is a multiplayer online battle arena MOBA game that pits two teams of five against each other. The aim of the game is not to kill the other team's heroes, of which there are to pick from, all with different skill sets, but to destroy the enemy's main building.
And with each hero sporting their own unique abilities, the game can often be confusing and chaotic for a new viewer. I'm always talking about the future of esports. This time, however, I committed to the present. Instead of, you know, doing work.
Casters and analysts of the Dota 2 Major were celebrities in their own right. The exhilarating atmosphere that you'd only experience by sitting with a massive crowd and cheering for your favorite team.
I've watched Dota 2 tournaments from home on my comfortable couch, with my two cats beside me, whooping as my team kicked butt.
I found myself wondering if I had wasted time and money flying up from Singapore, unable to go through with my planned interviews. Fans gather around the Dota 2 logo outside the arena for a photo. Regional Southeast Asia teams had been eliminated, so with no local team to root for the crowd took the initiative and cheered everything.
Every single play, every kill. They drowned the Axiata Arena in wild hoots of excitement. Watch the clip to hear just how hyped up the crowd was.
I sat up, fists pumping and screaming with the crowd as one team's plays cancelled out the other team's lead. Soon we were set for a third game. A toilet break and dinner beckoned, but no one wanted to give up their seats to the touch-and-go match.
And go it went. NIP made yet another play, resetting the game. The crowd screamed as the tables were turned. It ended in a loss for NIP in game three. The team was eliminated from the tournament but fans were satisfied, calling it the best series so far.
And that was even before the grand finals were due to be played on the last day. I was sitting next to a Malaysian blogger, who'd brought her husband along. She told me they had met through Dota, and that while she was rooting for Virtus. She laughed at her husband as Virtus. Her husband teased her as Secret took the lead, winning games two and three.
And it's memories like this that I found myself taking away from the event.PROPHETIC ‘Back to the Future’ Writer: Biff Tannen Is Based on Donald Trump.
