    PlayDota Inhouse (PDIH) is a place where PD members can gather to play a flamefest and toxic games together.

    Several people have requested for PDIH to be reborn (last iteration). At its height, PDIH was a very organized league with actual structure (Dotabuff). If this actually takes off properly, we can look into setting up a proper league, but for now, let's keep it casual like last time.

    Please reply to this thread that you would like to play in PDIH. The PDIH admins will invite you to the PDIH Steam Group. We can get a link to your Steam profile through PD (seriously, it's such an awesome feature), so all you have to do is reply.

    The link to the host game will be posted in the PDIH Steam Channel. Mr. BoB has created a Steam Channel for us to gather in. Click the "+ Channel" button in the chat window, and search for "PlayDota Reborn" in the User section.

    The majority of PD members are from Europe, so the games will be hosted there. If we get enough traction, we can start hosting games for US and SEA in the future.

    Times
    Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday

    1pm - US Eastern Standard Time (EST)
    6pm - British Standard Time (BST)
    7pm - Central European Time (CEST)
    8pm - Eastern European Time (EEST)​

    Rules
    Feeding, abandoning, spell abusing and any other game-ruining actions are punishable.
    We will be using a 3-strikes rule.

    1st Offense - Warning (banned for a day)
    2nd Offense - Suspension (banned for a week)
    3rd Offense - Termination (banned forever)​

    How's the bot work? And can we really get games going everyday? Why not start with weekends, and go from there.

    yea it will die again. then start again. then die. then start. it's been like this for 5 years.

    yea initially i was thinking the weekends. but with the battle cup going on, it would be pretty much just sunday only. at the same time, i agree. let's just keep it on the weekends. people that lose the battle cup first round in 20 min need something to do.

    Yep. Also idea: something like "Custom Game Fridays" (or whatever days) if enough people support the idea. We can vote via polls on the custom game a week before. Needn't even be a League exclusive thing like regular games, as long as people are signing up for it it should be good.

    I personally love Overthrow. Maybe we can have a small Overthrow tournament in the future.

    Also same rules apply; if you're a dumbass memer from /d2g/ you're gonna get banned instantly.

    Also, we need like an announcement on Reddit or something to get people flowing.

    Implying winrates matter. I'm sure we'll figure out a functioning system as long as we have a large enough player-base.

    This time of the year, huh?

    Yeah, I think there is going to be a little problem with having a large enough player-base.

    True, trying to achieve the most balanced teams possible is going to be a higher priority. Anothing thing which puts these efforts to early graves however is relentless pessimism. It will be a lot easier to get this thing of the ground without that.
