Russian invasion of Ukraine makes Alliance withdraw from D2CL

Alliance has decided to withdraw from Dota 2 Champions League (D2CL), effective immediately.

The decision comes in the wake of Putin's unacceptable aggression towards the Ukrainian people in the ongoing Russo-Ukraine war.

The tensed warring situation between the two countries has had a huge negative impact on the CIS region with various events and online competitions being cancelled due to uncertainty.

D2CL is organised by Epic Esports Events, mostly known for their flagship tournament series, EPICENTER, based out of Moscow, Russia.

Epic Esports Events falls under the umbrella of ESforce Holding Ltd, the parent holding company that owns Virtus Pro as well as RuHub.
