Sometimes Switzerland beats Spain 1-0 in the World Cup.
And sometimes Demon goes 5-23 with Spiritbreaker.
But how old is this screenshot?
A new scandal (“Hunter Exposed”) has surfaced regarding Jeff Hunter (Hunter_), a promoter of Hon and Dota and owner of such websites such as dxd-league.com and honleague.com. Apart from painting him as an embezzling spin doctor, the source also suggests he ran a fake modeling company and regularly impersonated a woman to get girls to send him naked photos, and impersonated a young boy to get explicit photos from a minor.
What do you think? Is the evidence incontrovertible? Or is it possible that Hunter_ is innocent and was framed?
The sites with the original material keep moving around but you can follow all the drama in this thread on the North American Dota Syndicate forums here: http://www.nadota.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1474
(Don’t try to discuss it on Hon Forums or your post will be deleted and your account might get banned due to the sensitive subject matter)
Here are some of the sites where you might be able to find the original “Hunter Exposed” material and decide for yourself:

One might expect easier competition now due to the mass exodus of experienced DXD players to HoN, but that doesn’t take anything away from the ridiculousness of Demon’s last winning streak, which nearly doubled the old record of 19 by Kanadian. On top of this he now has the highest rating ever (almost 2500) with a firm, 821-point lead on the 2nd place Troll_Chief. Dotally Rad writer iFlee is still in contention for the DXD Fall season and is holding down 9th place with a 1452 rating.
The great and almighty (and homeless apparently) amaru accuses solace of maphacking after going 0-8-0, farming 4 wraith bands & being level 8 a whole twenty minutes into the game.
Bringing a WHOLE new meaning to uncarriable, I don’t even think I’ve seen KaGGo be that bad 20 minutes into the game.
Then gets shit on & rage quits the game, obviously crying.
