Valve provides additional update amid massive community backlash

Valve’s decision of cancelling the Winter Major didn’t sit too well with the community.

It wasn’t only the community but also the players and talents that expressed their displeasure.

Weeks of hard work going down the drain, points being erratically redistributed towards the second and third major, no mention whatsoever of the $500,000 Major prize pool – were definitely the catalyst in lighting up the fire.

Ponlo talks about flying to the other side of the world and making around $2000 post expenses.

Dota 2 personalities such as SirActionSlacks and Sajedene talk about hosting tournaments in lieu of the Major being cancelled.

Boom questioning his decision to commit to Dota as the “worst possible decision” in his life.

Sumail with the straight talk on either having a united front or the death of Dota.


There is plenty more out there but the backlash did elicit a hopeful response from Valve nonetheless.
