More than 50 Dota 2 teams have been disqualified from the first open qualifier for the first DPC season for the CIS. This was announced on Twitter by the mid-leader of the Kasatiki team Kirill Sunlight Kachinsky. According to him, the reasons for this decision are associated with different team names on the ESL websites and the official site for registering Dota 2 teams.
On the official website for registering Dota 2 teams, Kaczynski’s roster is declared as Kasatiki, while on the ESL website the team is called Kasatiki (in Russian). According to the tournament rules, the name of the team on ESL must exactly match the name of the team on the website dota2.com
Before the start of the first open qualifier for the CIS, 161 teams registered on the ESL website. In the final grid, announced at 18:00 Moscow time, there are only 108 teams left. At the time of publication of the material, it is not known whether all teams faced a similar problem.
Dota 2 DPC Double Standards
According to Ark, Cascade Esports made a typo in the name when registering, so the team tag on the DPC website was also different from the one on the ESL portal. However, the organizers decided not to prohibit the team from participating in the qualifiers.
