Soooo I've got a Dragonclaw Hook I want to sell, but it has no sockets. Most of the listings I'm seeing at ~$840 have 4+ sockets, but I have no idea how much value each socket adds. Or if it'd be worth it to buy the items to add sockets and then sell it.

Anyone sell one of these things before?

I sold one without sockets (i'm pretty sure) for ~$820 bucks iirc. I'm not sure if empty sockets actually add any value unless they have a good gem.

Maybe the empty socket might actually be seen as a bad thing if someone just wants the clean item, since the chisels are super cheap.

Awesome, thank you. Just wanted to verify before I put up my listing cuz it seems there's no way to see in the sale history how many slots each item sold had. I didn't realize it was that cheap to add sockets.

Sockets are bad. No sockets command a higher price

Hmm I wonder if the 3 non-Major qualified teams (OG.Seed, Liquid, Cloud9) going to Summit 12 are supposed to be backup teams for the 3 Chinese teams that may or may not be able to enter the US.

Just caught up with Aster's win at the minor. First LAN win as an org right? Really wanna see them do well, especially Fade and Sccc. They've been looking pretty mid ever since Sccc left Newbee to join them back in Sep 2019 but maybe LaNm coaching for the minor paid off big time. Hope he's around for the major too this Sunday.

Apparantly BoBoKa, Sccc and ChYuan don't have their US visas sorted out though so apparantly they might not even be able to go to the major.

The Aster situation is looking dire. Fade, ChYuan and Sccc probably won't get their situation sorted in time for the major so they have to look for standins. I'm guessing LaNm can stand in for Fade but they're gonna need two more standins for Sccc and ChYuan.

Teams are meeting with ESL tomorrow so we'll see if it even goes forward with the arena LAN.

Time to actually tune into The Summit since this'll probably be the last we'll get of LAN Dota for a while



Maaaaaan, real talk. Knowing we'd get major games on Sunday was getting me through the week but now that it's all cancelled I'm bummed AF. Guess it was a matter of time if you look at other esports events getting cancelled. Dreamleague Major was mid as fuuuuuuuuck dude.

Cancellation/postponement confirmed. Situation sucks, but right thing to do and probably should have been done earlier to be honest. Don't see things getting better for some time either. :(
