Starting this month, I’ll be moving over to onGamers to work on Dota 2 coverage with them. The content I’ll be doing will be largely the same, though I may well have more resources and support, which means there might be cool new stuff coming as well in the future.
From my first step posting random stuff during TI2, to somehow being invited to TI3, to these past few weeks, it’s been a long trip. Dotaland has been a one-man project from the start to now. I’ve posted some 330 articles or so in roughly a year and a half, 348 tweets, and interacted with countless of you online and at events. I’ve had great feedback, unbelievable amounts of support, and some really great experiences along the way. To any of you that ever shared my stuff on reddit or elsewhere — thanks! I don’t like posting my own stuff because it feels like cheating somehow. Of course, my sincere thanks also goes out to those that have helped me, given me suggestions, or even just chatted with me along the way — you all know who you are, or I hope you do. If you’ve helped me in some way, just know that I truly appreciate it.
I’ll be keeping Dotaland.net up for the foreseeable future for archiving purposes, so people can still access and read up on past happenings, events, and so on. And I may yet find a new or different use for this place down the line…
If you want to continue following what I do, follow the Dotaland Twitter, where I’ll continue posting updates and whatnot regarding Chinese Dota. You’ll find me over at onGamers under ‘AutumnWindz’, and my profile icon will be the same as the icon for Dotaland (the red and green thingy). As always, you can also PM me on reddit for probably the fastest response.
My first contribution to onGamers is this interview with 820; check it out. I look to keep moving with onGamers, and I hope to see you there!
Well Played, you deserve!
Looking forward to more chinese articles! Thanks a lot for keeping the non-chinese informed about chinese pro scene.
Glad to be able to contribute. 🙂
congrats!! first cyborgmatt, and now you!
will you still do summaries of chinese twitter posts here?
I’ll probably do them at onGamers. There hasn’t been that much going on in the Chinese social sphere in the past few days, but keep an eye out over there and on the Dotaland Twitter.
Good job. You deserve it. Im expecting some articles about Chinese Dota 2 Club, how does it work (Salary, Training base, Coach, Youth team, Sponsor ,expecially LGD club)
Thanks! I’ll keep that idea in mind in case there are opportunities in the future.
not related to thread, but very related to dota in China
dear dotaland maintainers,
in case if you don’t know yet, there is a community of roughly 200 English speaking dota players from all over the world in China here which was created to organize a friendly and understandable environment for non-Chinese speaking dudes (and girls) who somehow found themselves living in China.
maybe it could be a nice subject for one of your next articles.
please contact us if interested @ http://steamcommunity.com/groups/Dota2ChinaExpats
Yeah, I actually have friends in that group. I’ll tweet it out for those interested.
Thanks for all the hard work!
Woops. Didn’t mean to send that right there. You deserve it! 🙂
