Today was one of those occasions that comes once, maybe twice (but definitely not thrice) in a lifetime. Gabe Newell arose from his Scrooge McDuck-esque lake of knives and cash to conduct an AMA. Spoiler: He likes Portal 2 more than Half-Life, and despite appearances to the contrary, Valve still makes games.
Newbee is a powerhouse when it comes to Chinese esports, especially Dota 2. The organisation already has a youth feeder team to pull from and was looking exceptional after taking second at Malaysia's ESL One Genting 2017 just over a week ago.

An epic game three between OG and Ad Finem in the Grand Finals of this weekend's premier Dota 2 tournament showed both teams were going to leave everything they had on the stage that night. While the superior OG eventually took the series 3-1, winning $US1,000,000 ($1,341,950), it wasn't before their Greek opponents could etch their names into Dota 2 history.
Valve released notes on Dota 2's latest upcoming patch, 7.00, earlier today. The site originally crashed when the notes were first supposed to go live, but is now back up and running with full details on a list of extensive changes that will be coming to Valve's free-to-play MOBA.
