Can you name one lvl1 rosh attempt that failed because of the crowd?
#4SwaglockHolmesPosted 7/20/2014 11:56:30 AM(edited)
I dunno, you're the one who thinks that crowd noise shouldn't be a factor in a format that has the players playing in front of thousands of overly hyped dota fans. You still sound like the stupid one to me.

LMAO

nobody is saying the crowd shouldn't be hype and enjoy games

but there is a crucial minute or two at the very start where the wrong reaction can cause the crowd to lose a game by itself. those people in the crowd are there because they love professional dota. I'm sure almost all of them would understand if the teams or valve asked them to try to not give away early roshes through obvious crowd reactions.

is that really too much? LOL are you saying if you were there and valve asked for that you would say no, I enjoy yelling in an obvious fashion while a team attempts something timing based before the game starts

the point is the POSSIBILITY IS THERE and when your'e playing for millions you remove possibilities like that

You're really underestimating the power of mob mentality, Swag. Most of the people watching are reasonable individuals, but pack them into a stadium and it doesn't take much to get most of them screaming.

And with that...pow! I'm gone!

I'm sure if Valve or one of the casters made a statement about it at the start of an important series that the crowd would have enough respect for the players to understand

I know I would

Possibility of someone running up at the stage or throwing tomatoes at the booth is still there since there's no obvious security is there.

As I said earlier, possibility of crowd revealing lategame smoke is also still there, if you've ever noticed that anticipation "oooo" from the crowd when 60min smokes occur.

do you really think valve doesn't have hired security at a 10 million dollar event -_ -
