Fantasy Dota

Postby The Mad Doctor » Sat May 17, 2014 9:06 am

What is fantasy Dota?

Fantasy Dota is a game that you can play with up to nine of your friends, where each of you forms teams made up of pro players to compete against each other, earning points for your team based on how each of your pro players performs in tournament matches.

Once one of your friends has created a Fantasy League, you can join their Fantasy League by creating a Fantasy Team. Then you'll recruit pro players onto your team through a live draft, alongside all other members of your Fantasy League. Once your teams are set, you'll play head-to-head against one of the other member each week, with players earning wins and losses based the total points that their pro players have earned.

Fantasy Season 1 starts May 19th and will be running through July 28th.

Maybe I just dont get it, but why would anybody play this, when you could just play the actual game instead?

Considering the fact that Dota 2 is getting ever more popular in international tournaments, I can see why this is happening. And I find it very interesting .

It's not like fantasy sports actually takes time. Especially in the case with e sports, all the points are automated online.

My friends invited me to a fantasy LoL group last week. Took us 5-10 minutes to pick and I haven't checked until now. After a glance my team is 2nd place in our group. If I was playing a game, I could've checked this during loading.

That's like asking why people play fantasy football/baseball/soccer/basketball/ANYTHING when they could just play the game. You are literally comparing apples to oranges.

Here's a little nugget of wisdom for you. If you are not interested in [thing] do not post in a thread specifically made for [thing]. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
