Dotaland weekly recap: Dec 4 — Dec 11, 2012

Tencent and their misinformation post most certainly brought about the biggest talking point of all posts on Dotaland in an otherwise quiet post-WCG week. Speaking of WCG, two post-WCG pieces are worth a minute: iG vs DK shouting match is a minute of “behind-the-scenes” during matchtime for these two teams, quirky, while the opinion piece reflecting on DK shows some insight into sentiments of DK after recent disappointments. Rounding off this week is a big treat for fans everywhere: the official English subtitled version of the G-1 Dota2 theme song featuring Chinese pros such as xiao8, BurNing, Zhou, and more — be sure to check that out!!
