Daeja’s View: Pace Yourselves, The International 8 Viewers!

We’re conscious of the dangers of sitting for long periods of time in front of our computers. We’ve been cautioned about repetitive motions. But how often do we ignore these concerns, especially when we’re spending the time watching video game streams? In the middle of The International 8, it’s time to discuss how we can best take care of ourselves during long days spent in front of our monitors, televisions, or even at the Rogers Arena.

But when GosuGamers spoke with OG’s new mid-player, Topias “Topson” Taavitsainen, he made it clear that he’s not worried about making his LAN debut with the team on Dota 2’s most important stage.

N0tail: One winner, one survivor in Europe. And thank God we were the one.

Canada is rarely graced by Dota 2 events. There was Northern Arena Beat Invitational in Montreal in 2016…. This year, the country has been rather lucky by comparison. In addition to Vancouver playing host to the forthcoming The International 8 (TI8), Toronto recently featured a show match between some fan favorite players from Europe and North America.
