Wow. What a cesspool of idiocy and sexism the chat channel is. Fortunately I can turn that off.

I started watching the International quite late last year, but I very much enjoyed what I did see. Watching it in client is cool but I usually end up catching up on Youtube because I'm not around to catch live games.

Some day the gaming community at large won't be so fucking stupid and sexist. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Anyway, I'm gonna check out the Internationals this year. Well at least try to. Competitive gaming doesn't really interest me but then again I haven't really tried getting into it.
