Dota 2 Winter Major 2022 is Cancelled and Everyone is Mad

The first big Dota 2 tournament of 2022, the Winter Major, has been cancelled by Valve. The announcement comes as no surprise following the increasing number of Covid-19 cases worldwide, which has forced some countries to impose travel restrictions again.

Understandably, many quarters are disappointed with the decision, not because the tournament was cancelled, but due to the manner in which Valve handled the cancellation.

 

“As there will be no Major, Tour 1 will conclude after all of the regional league tournaments have ended,” a statement posted on Dota 2’s official website read.

Point distributions will be changed as well: the points that were meant to be distributed at the Winter Major will be transferred to the second and third Majors later on in the year to ensure “the balance of points between regional and cross-region remains the same”.

The Dota 2 community is reportedly unhappy with the decision as the cancellation has created some issues for the participating teams. Some teams had to bear the financial consequences, while others expressed concern over the fact that the points will only be distributed at a later date.

When contacted by IGN Southeast Asia today, Team Nigma Galaxy manager Adam Shah lamented the lack of communication between Valve and the professional Dota 2 teams.

“It’s just very sad. I think the worst part is how Valve has been choosing to deal with these situations over the past few years. (All) we want from our end is some form of communication (from Valve),” he said, adding that Valve could have spoken to the teams first before making the decision.

Adam also said Valve did not have to cancel the Major as other esports tournaments were still able to go on, albeit with stricter SOPs in place.

Other esports teams and pro players, meanwhile, aired their frustrations on Twitter.
