Dota 2: First Major 2022 canceled without substitution

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

in official statement – statement Valve explained: “We have made the difficult decision to cancel the first major. We had hoped to host an international tournament for the LAN, but the discovery and spread of new variants of Covid-19 and the resulting increase in travel restrictions made it impossible for all eligible teams to meet. Together in the LAN Championship.”

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.

Society reacts with horror

The community, professionals, and teams show little understanding of this move on the part of the developer: Written by international winner Syed “Smail” Hasan. Twitter: “If all the teams decide not to compete again in Season 2, we will at least have some sort of stable system, either better communication or maybe Dota will die completely. Anyway better than the current situation.”
