The newest update to the Compendium for DOTA 2 has some interesting additions smuggled inside. Move over fantasy football because here comes the 'fantasy challenge' where users build their fantasy team of pros.
The in-game UI tracks points earned by fantasy players to easily compare against others. Valve also produce player cards - gotta catcha 'em all! Also there's now 'future predictions' for psychics.
Did I say psychics? I meant 'super nerds with a case of know-it-all-itis'. Seven pages of 'told you so' are now available to prove your brain bulges and throbs the most. Take that peers!
"Assemble a fantasy team of players from those attending The International," blurbs Valve. "As they play in the tournament, your fantasy team will earn points. At the closing of the tournament, each of your fantasy teams will earn you an item based on its performance. The in-game UI tracks the points earned by your fantasy players, so that you can easily compare and compete with your friends." "Leaderboards and highlights on fantasy teams will displayed at both the International web site and the event itself."
"Leaderboards and highlights on fantasy teams will displayed at both the International web site and the event itself."
As for 'player cards'... "Collect an entire team and earn more customization options for your International Courier. Trade your extra player cards with your friends to complete the whole set, and bag yourself a mythical crab mount as well."
