Esports Come to Dotabuff
Not every game community can boast that it has more prize money than active players. With a $10 million prize pool for TI4 we wanted to release a stretch goal of our own - a better esports stats experience. Today we're proud to announce the launch of Dotabuff Esports. Here are a few of our favorite features:
See event specific hero statistics, records, and compare players to decide who the MVP should have been. We also divided up Leagues into Events for tournaments with various different segments. The International 4 is divided up by multiple qualifiers all the way up to the main event. You can see Pick and Ban stats for only one part or the entire league. Check out just the ESL One Frankfurt 2014 Event!
Now you can find player pages that were made for just Esports. Examine how multiple teams pick against certain players. See which players are the most popular and dig deep into fantasy stats. There are only 8 days left to pick your TI All-Stars so make it count!
Understand just how many subs teams have used in their lifetime. How powerful does a team become when they can draft their signature heroes?
Fun fact: In addition to an 0-5 losing streak against Evil Geniuses, Nav'i only has a 46.43% win rate this month. Are they holding back before The International?
Also, did you know that Evil Geniuses boasts a lifetime win rate of 83.33% for matches under 20 minutes, but only has a 42.62% win rate for matches between 50-60 minutes? Sounds like throws-o-clock to me.
Live Match Tracking
Never know which matches are live or just ended? Annoyed that the stream never looks at items? Want to see something really quick without having to toggle camera modes in game? Or are you just out running errands and want to see if your favorite team is performing since you decided to bet every hat you owned? Live match tracking keeps you in the loop.
This is a work in progress - and you should expect to see some additions soon. We've put in a special effort to make sure everything is mobile friendly so that you're never out of the game. Just bookmark dotabuff.com/esports and use it from any mobile device.
We hope you're as excited as we are about Esports and can't wait to see how the community uses this new resource. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
