“ONE Esports is committed to delivering top-notch experiences for Dota 2 . These changes were tough to make, but they were necessary. We place great importance on the health and safety of our esports athletes, staff, and fans, ”said Carlos Alimurung, CEO of ONE Esports.
Valve has posted an update regarding Dota 2‘s premier event, TI10, and that it will be likely postponed to a date in 2021. Plus, the developer is looking to “restructure the season” for fall, indicating that these canceled events might be returning in some capacity before the end of the year.
For fans still hungry to get into the TI mood, Valve has promised that the Battle Pass will be releasing soon, instead of waiting for a time closer to TI10.
