Because every broadcaster of the Shanghai Major had its sound handled differently (sound engineers falling asleep over their mixing console, RuHUB talking over the music, etc.) and there is no One Good Version, I decided to splice together all the good audio parts with some editing on top to make it all consistent. Unfortunately, every broadcast had the Dota sound effects playing over the first songs.

Since the audio was taken from several Internet streams, it’s not truly lossless — that said, the original quality was 160kbps AAC 48kHz, which is pretty good (much more than MP3 would be at that bitrate). I call it lossless because, by providing you with a FLAC, you know there wasn’t any additional re-encoding step making the audio even lossier.
