Welcome to The Goonternational
A lot has happened in the last ten months. Temperatures are rising the world over, and MMRs are dropping. A new hero was added, and there was a number patch (a big one). LeBron passed 38,000 career points, the UK's blasting through Prime Ministers like cheap cigarettes, and the world's richest man is on a Become Destitute Any% Speedrun. Plague is Immortal. And deep in the treacherous wilderness of Seattle, a sandalled man sits atop a gilded throne of Steam Decks, stroking his glorious beard, and tries to decide whether to sue us for Copyright Infringement. That's right, baby.
It's Goonternational time again.
10/10/2023 - They Think It's All Ogre
It is Drow.... The End is here, Too Hot For DotA beat Monkeys for Nothing and Chimps For Free, 2-0 in a gruelling battle of 2 (nearly hour long) games of DotA.
Congratulations to 2H4D for their well-deserved and impressive run through the upper bracket!
The charity chosen for this year is Stonewall, you can read more about them here: https://www.stonewall.org.uk/
We asked 2H4D to tell us a little about the Charity and why it means a lot to them.
"Stonewall is an amazing LBGTQ+ charity that does great work in helping and defending queer people in the UK. Particularly in light of recent rises in hate crimes and hateful rhetoric in the UK, we think that it is an important time to show and provide support, which is why we are honoured and proud to select Stonewall as our charity. We hope everyone can come together and raise lots of money for them!"

That is it for another year, thank you so much to everyone old and new for playing, casting, cheering and getting involved. This has truly been the best GTi so far and has been so much fun to organise and to be able to give you all the Ti experience.
So for the final time, Good Luck, and Have Fun!
