Valve's Shanghai DOTA 2 Tournament Continues To Be A Disaster

Late last week, Gabe Newell very publicly fired a controversial commentator from the $US3 million DOTA 2 Shanghai Major, calling him an "ass". He also fired the production team. That, however, was apparently not enough to right a sinking ship. This week has seen all sorts of issues major and minor, from non-sound-proof commentating booths (which could alert teams to each others' strategies), to weird noises on stream, to a lack of private Wi-Fi for teams, leaving their communication and information potentially unsecured. Other high lowlights include an exasperated broadcast director who, for a while, couldn't even get a pass to the event she was directing, mistreated cosplayers, a VIP room with, uh, some chairs and a lack of transportation for talent after a 17-hour workday.

As SB Nation reports, the week's biggest flub came yesterday, when the Major's organisational staff lost Team Spirit player Roman "Ramzes666" Kushnarev's keyboard.

The event then suffered a delay that left the entire 31,000-seat stadium empty. At an event of the Shanghai major's size, scale and cost, this is basically unheard of. It's also a terrible misstep in the wake of DOTA 2's increasingly professional events and broadcasts (case in point: Valve's debut tentpole major, held in Frankfurt, was great). In the span of a single event, the sport's gone from wowing crowds on the big stage all the way back to the amateur leagues.

It should be noted that the new production team is doing their damnedest to wipe the muck and shame off this event and get it on its feet again. People have apparently been sleeping behind cameras not out of laziness or a lack of dedication, but because of how many extra hours they have been putting in. Here's commentator Jorien "Sheever" van der Heijden talking about that:
