The team at Valve came under some fire recently with the announcement of the Fall Major. The dates for qualifiers and the Main Event happened to overlap with Dream league and Beyond the Summit, forcing teams to drop out so they could attend the Major. In the past the majors haven’t had this issue, so this is a new problem. It’s nice to see Valve starting to learn from its mistakes and communicate more. Their post on the Dota 2 Blog now has the dates for the upcoming major and the International. Hopefully this doesn’t happen anymore.
The Spring Major and The International 2017
Although the location is still unknown the Spring Major will take place April 20-23 with Qualifiers from March 6-13th. It’s also interesting that the Qualifiers will be split into new regions with North and South divisions of America and Europe/CIS.
The International will be held in August with qualifiers running from June 22-29th. It will likely be at the Key arena again.
The Boston Major
The post also gave the final list of teams attending the Boston Major, and here they are!
It should be a lot of fun watching the Major, and I can’t wait to see who wins!
