Reddit news: November
November is coming to an end. It was remarkable to all the Dota 2 fans for the splendid The Frankfurt Major. Reddit's audience created many exciting topics about the event. This article covers the most popular and iteresting discussions from Reddit started in November.
The Frankfurt Major
"Team OG takes the series 3-1 against Team Secret winning $1,110,000!" is the most discussed topic of the month, which is no surprize. The team, which has undergone the path from the European qualifiers to the championship at the first Major tournament by Valve, has become the favorite of the Dota 2 fans from all the world. The players, who had aspired to achieve the acknowledgement for a long time, as well as the newcomers of the proscene demonstrated incredible performance and deservingly won the main tournament of the fall. Congratulations, guys!
Emotions of the winners
For each player of OG, The Frankfurt Major is the greatest achievement in their career. It's so interesting to see how different the reaction of each player is. Supposedly, only Miracle- is thinking of how to achieve 9 000 MMR...
Some promises were made in case OG would win. Some players promised to make tattoo, some - to stream 3 days in a row. It's high time to see how people keep their promises.
Some users noted that the event was almost perfect in terms of technical organization with splendid sound, clear image, no delays during matches and much more. The event is a true exemple to follow. We wonder if The Shanghai Major manages to keep up with The Frankfurt Major.
Many fans around the world admired the work of ReDeYe. The post suggesting to keep him as a host for the upcoming Valve tournaments gained 1 500 so-called "likes". "I don't have a reddit account any more, but thanks for the kind words <3" - replied ReDeYe on Twitter.

Team Secret players were considered the favorites of both the tournament and the final match. It turned out that defeating them is easy. How? Ban Ember Spirit and win!
One of the users posted the tournament's infographics that matters. There's no KDA, quantity of kills or hero stats. Instead you can see the quantity of bearded heroes picked and the number of Aghanim's Scepters granted by Alchemist to his teammates. Useful isn't it?
The only discontent was about the Compendium. The new system with the treasures and Infusers, necessary to improve some items were irritating. Why would one reinvent a bicycle, if you have one?
"Daily reminder that it's been at least 3 mins since the Frankfurt Major ended and there is still no 6.86." That's what community wrote on Twitter during the award ceremony. It's notable that Valve replied in an official post on the very next day: the patch will be released in mid December!

"IT'S A DISASTAH!" and "BLAAAAACK HOOOOOLE" are branded battlecries of TobyWan, who recently replied in Ask Me Anything.
— Considering you don't breathe when you cast, how long can you stay underwater?
— As a kid I used to challenge myself how long I could stay under water, I averaged about a minute.
— Would you rather fight 1 puppey sized puppy or 100 puppy sized puppeys?
— I chose the path of peace
— You've casted a lot of games-- from small online tournaments to grand finals of TIs and so on: what would be the next big thing you want to achieve as a caster?
— To keep doing it :D I actually have a couple of things planned, but we will see how they pan out
A lesson in one of the CIS schools was much discussed on Reddit. What if such school really existed?
