Dota 2 Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021-22 is already running at full speed and the participating teams are busy collecting points in order to secure the best possible seeds for the next major competition of the eSport strike. Developer Valve put a heavy damper on this hustle and bustle on January 12, 2022: The first major of the year won’t take place – neither offline nor online.
No replacement for the first major DPC
The first part of the three-part DPC season ends without a major climax, because Valve doesn’t seem to be considering an online tournament as a replacement for the canceled LAN event. A huge loss for eSport teams and fans who have to miss a big event for months. Big players also lose a profitable source of income.
