The graphs never agree
We had a debate yesterday on why the net worth graphs in OpenDota and in-game fail to agree so badly, and I figured out at least part of it.
One would think that this is 10 minutes in the in-game graph:
But, actually it is 11, if we compare the notch before that with the net worth as shown by the spectator tool:
Annoyingly minute 20 lines up properly with the notch, and that is indeed minute 20:
What OpenDota calls 10 minutes appears to be around 9:30:
vs. hovering 11 minutes, which seems to be just inbetween the in-game 10 and 11 minutes:
I think it is specifically 9:28, the little hero showcase before the game starts is not correctly accounted for, and is 16 seconds per team, stealing 32 seconds from the overall game.
I am sure everyone found this post well worth the time to read.
That's pretty good investigating.
Its nice to see an actual legit reason for a variance and a simple solution they could implement to fix it.
