Wow....game official release actually has an impact on our OCN community? who would have thought huh...

Just when everyone of us thought that we had more invites sitting around than actual interested individuals.

I still don't own skyrim and witcher 2, but I doubt skyrim will go $5 (will only buy at $5) within a year and I'm debating whether I should buy witcher 2 at GOG to show my support, or to get a physical copy for collection (but then I need to crack open the dam thing).

Anyway, back to the game

Think I'm the minority here. As good as NaVi is as a team, I don't really like them for unknown reasons. I like to see them play, I just dont like to see them win lol. I do like Alliance so I'll be pretty satisfied if they can win. However I'm also hoping that iG will make a comeback from their recent sub-par performance. I watched the TI2 finals on youtube and thought they played really well.

So these are my picks, I'll be glad with finals being played by 2 of these 3 teams.

Ambient occlusion - do you guys use it? It's set to OFF by default. On or Off is better gaming wise not beauty wise.

I use it. AO is a lighting technique explained in detail here. Turning it on will require more from your system.

I saw that article on WP.

Gaming wise is it better to use it or not? I mean, the player experience, is it easier to recognize certain things or not? Do you play better with it or not.

I play at a fairly high level and I generally have it on. I just tried with a few games off after you mentioned it and didn't really miss anything. If you have FPS issues then I suppose you could keep it off smile.gif

Never got SLI to work for me but not like you need it.

It is just all around better. The balance has gotten better and server issues are few and far between. However I heard there was some duping and gold hacking going on for a while so now it is so easy to get good items via the auction house. At least it was, there was another round of banning done by Blizzard just recently. I guess a decent amount of gold is 1 bil+. Take that with a grain of salt though, I don't know all that much about it.

Also prepare the rage, Valve has apparently started work on Techies. Found this on reddit.

For TI3 I honestly think there are a ton of teams that could realistically win, but I agree that Na'vi Alliance and LGD.cn are the top 3. Of those I would wan't Na'vi (really dislike Alliance, not sure why), but really I am rooting for Fnatic. I would just love it if the top 3 had no eastern teams.

The thing I hated the most in Dota 1 is coming in Dota 2. Good times.
