Looks like I've become sort of a Dota addict over the past few days . Finally played my first matchmaking round and did okay with Kunkka (0 kills, 2 deaths, 14 assists). There was a Pudge player on my team who went 36 and 1, no doubt an experienced player thrashing some newbs . Second game I did well against a sub-par team, going 13-4, and third game I went 7-1 (these with Kunkka too). Fourth game didn't end up too well, the matchmaking threw me into a game where everyone had around 200 wins or more . It's probably understating it, but I got owned . Went 2-11 in the game and pretty much couldn't do a single thing right - my spell timing was awful. Obviously I got a little flack from the team, less than I expected I'd get however . More practice is needed!
I've been watching the Olympics like crazy too, especially the swimming and cycling events. It's great that the Brits finally have some medals after a slow start - they truly owned track cycling and cycling altogether. Canada's doing great by our standards too! We beat the Brits in women's footy today to get to the semis, so there's some excitement for us there. If we could somehow make the final, that'd be great. But we play the Americans at Old Trafford next so it's going to be a huge challenge. Watched some tennis too, missed that marathon Federer vs Del Potro match but did catch Murray vs Djokovic. I'm happy for Murray since he beat Djokovic for a chance at gold in a Wimbledon final rematch against Federer. These Games have been immensely entertaining so far, here's hoping for more .
And on a sidenote, I starting up some Folding@Home since I figured I could chip in with my new computer. Not aiming to win any competitions, just helping out a great cause . I fold for the Overclock.net team.
