I actually laughed at this, haha! Do you guys remember a fanfic from dotaportal and dota-allstars.com, entitled Amber? That fanfic truly rocks and I hope the author would continue to write stories here.
I'm Fire525 (Never would have guessed :P). And yeah, at the moment the matchmaking is kinda dodgy. I tend to play with friends though, so at least I have good allies (Aside from the terrible AA I seem to play with a lot, name starts with an F or something).
