First off, it just makes no sense to have the awards for a calendar year instead of the actual Dota years of TI to TI.
And it is sad to see that GosuGamers fell into the trap of placing more weight on the most recent achievements, instead of the whole year. I expect that from the fans but you guys should know better.
I think I agree with most of the winners, taking into account that it is calendar year based. Or at least if I don't agree then the winner makes sense too.
But ok, how can you give Machine the award for best host, I don't care how good he was he hosted one event. You said it yourself that Redeye was amazing at three major lans.
And isn't it a huge overstatement to say Faith_Bian is the best offlaner ever? He is really good but he has been playing at top level for a year. How can you say that he is better than guys like iceiceice and Universe when taking their whole careers into account?
