DOTA 2 Showdown: Gamespot and games.on.net fight to the death tonight at 8PM Eastern

games.on.net vs. Gamespot DOTA 2

By on August 21, 2013 at 3:10 pm

That’s right: Gamespot AU and games.on.net’s writers and staff are heading into a brutal (not really) cage match (fun series of battles) against each other tonight, for honour, glory, and your love and affection.

We’ll be playing a best-of-three series of DOTA 2 matches tonight at 8PM AEST, with streaming and commentary provided live by Duckville. You can find the stream here from that time onwards.

Fighting on the games.on.net team are myself, your friendly editor, our regular writers Alex, James and Bane, and our new server admin Jake. We’ll be facing off against a team of Gamespot’s finest, captained by eSports and Community Manager Zorine ‘Harli’ Te.

Stop by the stream and cheer us on! Or, well, don’t I guess. But it’d be nice.

For gods sake Alex, I already have half my work who are going to watch me too ;p

 

Aha good work and good luck!

Any way we can watch this ingame?

 

A way to watch this in game would be great.

 

Why not in League Of Legends?..

Well that was embarrassing.

 

Welp that’s what happens when 4/5 of their team members have over 200 wins and most of us started playing DOTA 2 last week

We were told Gamespot had rough skilled players like our own. This was obviously not the case – 4 of the 5 players had over 100-500 wins each.
