    Should be fired and replaced. I hate him and all the shitty particles and deny effects and costumes and custom spells that make everything and everyone unrecognizable and the whole tone that he gives to the custom visuals in the game.
    I'm not against how Dota makes money and keeps itself afloat. But the guy in charge is awful IMO.

    Apparently enough people like cosmetics that valve can make 30 million in less than a month.

    @ItsJustANumber:
    Every TI compendium is stating that they will give some percentage of the gained money from the gains to increase the price money.

    It's good source for me of how much money do they made.
    Here you can see the difference between the base price pool and the additionally raised by the compendium, that 19 mil are 25% of the gathered by Valve - or they gained there 76 mil in total.

    I'd say they fare pretty well.

    That's easy. I'm asking about non compendium.
