    I did"nt visited this forum for nearly 2 years

    Remember the old time like abdullink, yajirobefrom dc, iser, etc troll post.

    Some people i know still lurking like dr frank, hmmm the rest seems already move on from this forums.

    Some mods i know still online till now but most of all them are dissappering.

    So why you guys still stick on this forums ?

    Even ice frog last post was around 8 years ago

    Was there a PD reddit post or why do we have PDisDed threads?

    did you ever notice that this game itself is dying? how do you justify the continued existence of a forum based on a dead game?

    Guess why the rest is slowly but surely leaving. The guy apparently feels himself to be too good for the community he's built in the first place. And if it isn't him, it most definitely the company he's working for.

    I think Icefrog himself was sort of assimilated, or rather "overriden" by Valve. I mean he's no longer able to steer the game in the direction he wants or believes most adequate. While Dota was just a WC3 map, he did the best for the community for the most part, but now he only obeys Valve's staff and has to mold the game as he is told to. And this assuming he is still alive at this moment, because he has not spoken since YEARS ago and has at all times remained anonymous - shrouding himself in myth.

    The move of making Dota a full-fledged game, free from the shackles of Blizzard's WC3 was both an opportunity and a big risk in the end, and just now we perceive the consequences.

    It was a deal we knew it had to be made at some point. But in the end it looks like he chose the devil to make the deal with.

    Forums in general are a pretty dead concept.

    Maybe he's so rich he just doesn't give a fuck about dota because he's too busy fucking transsexual prostitutes every night.

    We all died the day OSfrog sold his soul to Volvo so he can afford mangos for his family.

    Hey mate I still come here occasionally. It's the nostalgia perhaps, and the fact that I abhor Reddit. Redditards have caused some serious damage to DotA unfortunately.
