Also (on a more serious note): What do all of you guys think about the 'scandal' about Anderson selling International-stuff?

@Tobi: Does jD think about hiring another caster permanently? I mean, you always can get sick or there could be several games at a time. It made the impression you wanted to go that way with Epi.

I'm sure u got a good answer for it and i'm simply asking why.. :)

Got to edit that i'm very sure that this is a question i am not the only one who is wondering about!

Keep up the good work with DotaTalk!

@Tobi, Synderen and Puppey.

This is a balance question and what you think of this perticular element of DotA balancing.

DotA features about 10-15 heroes which in my opinion have an insanely bigger map control and/or game control aspect. My examples of this is Tinker's ultimate which grants him the full map potential, Furions teleport which can be placed ANYWHERE on the map with just a bit more cd than for example Voids 1000-ish ranged jump (which sounds kinda funny when you think of the insane contrast), and lets say Morphling with his insane potential of tankiness, damage output both in late and early game bursts, map control/long range prescence and 2 escape mechanisms.

Contrast ANY of these three heroes with most of the hero pool and you can really see that most heroes don't have such insane grasp of the map and gameplay. Morphling, being that carry type that he is for example outshines almost every other ranged carry prescence-wise.

So, What are your opinions of having about 15% of the hero pool having so much more potential of effectivity than the rest?

(my opinion: It's kind of retarded balance-wise, but it makes for insanely fun plays).

@2GD: who has the thickest chest hair? You or Bruno?

@all: There are rumors about a certain player playing for a certain team, without any official statements. Everybody know who he is, but everybody is denying it officially. Don't you think it's rather unprofessional that some teams don't make any statement at all, even though there have been huge changes over the past 3-4 weeks?

@Puppey: Team Empire as well as Moscow Five have been playing a lot like Na'Vi has in "their prime". Aggressive early game and pushes. While this is typically Russian, they have managed to play with some sort of structure without throwing the game. What do you think about the development in the Russian scene?

@Tobi: You've been casting a lot with Draskyl lately and shown some great synergy with him. Could you see the two of you as a consistent caster duo? (with some exceptions for when certain Pro Players are available)

@Puppey+syndereN: Some people say, or most people say, a captain should be in the role of the Supporter, because he can pay more attention to the state of the map and coordinate the teams movement. This is - supposedly - also the reason why you syndereN switched the captains slot with 7cking Mad and Kebap for a few matches. Is it really that important, or is it just that Supporters have proven to have the best insight and strategies?

@Puppey - You gave a interview to Estonian newspaper and said you have been invited to actually work as a co-caster in joinDOTA , did you troll the newspaper or is it true?

@Puppey: Last show you guys talked about Roshan, which made me think: what if we had a Roshan pit top on Radiant's side like we currently do for Dire's, and have him spawn randomly like the runes, do you think it would make the "Roshan issue" less of a problem? Thanks for reading my question!

@Puppey, @syndereN - how serious or not serious does everyone treat Starladder this close to TI2? Do you think that with so many 'standins' it is just a training exercise with prize money?
@Tobiwan - are you homesick? Spring back here in Aus and it will be beach weather soon! P.s make this a podcast <3 and get a female player to guest one week!
