Tournaments in China Sign Dota 2 Big Team as Participants without Approval, Really?

One of the spring edition tournaments in China, the Hainan Master Invitational, announced the tournament participants on January 14, 2020 yesterday.

The announcement will be made on the Weibo page, where there will be 12 teams participating (8 teams will receive direct invite).

This tournament will have a total cash prize of USD 300 thousand which will be held on March 3 to 8, 2020 in Haikou, China.

The following 8 teams received direct invite towards the Hainan Master Inviational Spring:

  • OG
  • PSG.LGD
  • ViCi Gaming
  • Team Secret
  • Evil Geniuses
  • Fnatic
  • Invictus Gaming
  • Virtus.pro
  • EHOME

The announcement featured the best teams, including OG, the winner of The International 2 times in a row and Team Secret.

However, there appears to be a problem at this tournament, where the Team Secret manager, Matthew “CyborgmattBailey said he did not accept an invitation from the Hainan Master Invitational Spring.

However, the Cybersport.ru party who wrote the news about the participants of the Hainan Master Invitational Spring team did not appear to be validating anymore, so the Team Secret manager said that Cybersport.ru had written fake news and that Team Secret would not come to the tournament.

Investigate, apparently on the Weibo page is the team that wants to beinvite, and it did not say that the teams had confirmed their attendance.

VP Esports also had time to contact PSG.LGD whether they were contacted by the organizers or not, and PSG.LGD’s answer was that they were not contacted by the organizers and had no information about this tournament.

Geez, I wonder if the organizers were at fault, or was the information on the Weibo page not properly captured? What do friends think Revival?
