The International 3 was my first time ever really sitting down and immersing myself in DOTA eSports. After having my eyes and ears bombarded with days of professional DOTA play I must say I want more.
TI3 is the single most impressive eSports event I've ever watched. I was even lucky enough to go into the Finals weekend with a team to root for. Having watched the previous weekend's preliminaries had the pleasure to seeing The Alliance own face all the way through their group. So as a new comer, and with the knowledge that against the previous champions Na'Vi they were the underdogs, I wanted nothing more than to see them succeed.
There's a lot of topics covered in this podcast with Kyle. We talked at length about the production quality, the final five games, what I took away as a new comer and Kyle as a veteran, and of course what StarCraft can and should lift from this tournament.
