A Dota player representing Wales has spoken about the shortcomings of the Commonwealth Championship.
Birmingham, England, will host the first Commonwealth Games from August 6-7. The tournament features tournaments for eFootball, Dota 2 and Rocket League. All three titles have tournaments open to everyone and a women’s division.
A few major esports leagues have recently come under fire for their competitive status. The CoD community has slammed the organizers of the 2022 Call of Duty finale for their “shameful” LAN setup.
Teams of Overwatch competitors refused to play because of a dispute with Blizzard that prematurely ended the game.
Both cases exemplified significant issues in esports. The Commonwealth Championship is the latest example of an event not meeting players’ expectations.
The PGL Dota 2 Arlington Major 2022 is the last chance for many teams to collect DPC points and qualify for TIT.
Dota 2 players criticize the Commonwealth Championships
dota player, DyHe came out of retirement and represented Wales at the Commonwealth Championships. Unfortunately, the tournament was not successful as the team of Die only showed two excellent games.
Only five of the eight Dota 2 teams showed up, making it a short-lived event.
Dy He tweeted., “We want to play more Dota. From a Dota perspective, we’re a little underwhelmed.
Adding insult to injury, both matches took place before the opening ceremony. Dye was proud to represent his country but the retired player “loves to compete” and wishes he had more opportunities.
“The boys have worked hard and they deserve more than what we got.”
Dye gave a shout out to the Esports Wales staff for inviting him and wished the rest of the teams the best of luck for the rest of the event.
