  1. In the iJustine video tour of the LTT studio, Linus mentions that Jon has relocated to North Carolina but remains part of the writing team. Anyone know if that's a permanent move? I miss his hosting!
  2. i have to say every LMG employee is much smaller in person (at least compared to what I thought how tall they were) overall I liked it, but I wish it had more stuff to do. I think being there for 6 hours, you run out of stuff to do pretty quickly (which is why I challenged Edzel numerous times at CS:GO). Obviously, space is an issue and this was their first event, I still thoroughly enjoyed it. But going forward, if they ever look to expand it, I think more PC stations could be great, make it a little bit of a LAN event where people can compete with one another. I believe they h
  3. I came in through the Boltbus from Seattle (I flew in for a different event, LTX was just a convenient side-thing) But I do think Vancouver is pretty nice already (Tim Horton's donuts are legit)
  4. Man I'm so hype! First time in Canada, so hopefully I'll somehow manage to find my way
  5. it's not that they can't use a different ratio, but its so the tournament organizers know which kind of monitors to provide. it had been pretty inconsistent for a while
  6. Doubt it. A lot of pro players still use really old/bad resolutions because they are used to them, in CS:GO especially. Pros have gotten used to it in Dota, but if you aim half your life in 4:3, then you're probably going to stick to it. In dota 2, the pros also agreed on 1080p 24" monitors to be the standard for all premier events IIRC.
  7. Flying in from Germany! (Well I had to fly out to Seattle anyway, so this is a nice side-trip) EDIT: also VIP was supposedly sold out at first but was available later. Bought 2 tickets now (1VIP + 1 Big Package), forgot the shirt on one. Hopefully that'll be resolved later
  8. The Razer Blade Stealth would be amazing to have, currently I'm still lugging around my Macbook Pro from 2008, so being able to upgrade that to a much lighter option would be fantastic!
  9. I recently upgraded my rig from no SSD to a 500GB one and it's such a blessing. As a gamer and content creator, I would never be able to go back to the "speed" of HDDs. Editing with Adobe Premiere Pro is just a hundred times smoother now. Can only recommend !
  10. thanks! figured, im quite surprised its doing well so far anyway
  11. Hey guys, first post here! So I only recently got into this whole pc building thing, very recently (through Linus' videos, which is why I'm here) I've been reading up a lot on multiple things but I thought I should ask here first before I do anything rash. 4 years ago I bought a build off of a list I found online for roughly 700€ which has served me quite well at the time and up until now. My CPU and Motherboard bid farewell so I upgraded. My current rig reads Intel Xeon E3-1231v3 Asus Z97-AR Asus GTX 750TI 2024MB 1072 MHz Kingston HyperX 16GB RAM (1600MHz, DDR3) PSU 400W
