Ilya Illidan Pivtsaev:
“No [I am not planning to return to the competitive scene], because what does not suit me in the game will not change from the word at all, and these are 3 things. First: encouraging solo play and essentially killing the party rating for high mmr players in one of the most team games in the world. This is just incredible nonsense.
Second: the elimination of roles on the ranking, where playing your role is of the greatest importance. For those who suddenly do not know, there are no roles in the rating above 7500, you simply cannot choose them, just as you cannot choose not to find a game against a party of players. It just doesn’t work corny. I have this option, and I continue to play with two and three thousand people in the party, despite its presence.
Third: Valve does not want to actively intervene in any problematic Dota situations until everything gets out of control. This also applies to the DPC of the season, and the 140 million that they received from the compendium and could have scattered during the non-DPC tournament. Or at least 10 of them for several tournaments throughout the year.”
Illidan clarified that for all its flaws, Valve considers Valve to be the best publisher of esports disciplines. However, he noted that the company Gabe Newell would be worth something to borrow from Riot Games.
“Don’t get me wrong, I still think Valve is the best game release platform in the world for esports. Their success is comparable to Riot. Valve takes the opposite approach to Riot’s. Yes, only such approaches are an extreme and extreme option. If both of these companies were moving towards the golden mean, that would really be great. In the meantime, every company associated with the release of eSports games has its own huge disadvantages. But I’d rather choose Valve’s democracy than Riot’s dictatorship. “
Illidan has been performing on the professional stage since the days of DotA Allstars. His last team was FlyToMoon 2.0, which disbanded in May. Follow us for more Dota 2 news and updates.
