Yet they let Solo compete at the last major and gave him prize money as well.

Lol? Nice consistency?

I like the move of keeping players banned for matchfixing but the timing seems so strange, after registration is locked, invites are out, and one of the players won an open bracket. Probably could have been better ways to handle that.

I think solo was never found guilty of match fixing so i guess there’s the difference. He was just accused and meme’d

I think the offering of staying in the tournament is Valve’s way of apologising for not releasing this list sooner.

Otherwise, they would have flat out removed Mineski-X from the equation and given it to the second place team.
Same with Execration, they would have just removed them as well.

I get that this is “fair” and everything but the timing is nothing short of batshit retarded from Valve. Next time fly them to the main event and DQ them there.

You mean I just write stuff here and other people can see it?

I believe the cases are different. In TI4, I recall Valve gathered the players and warned them about matchfixing implications. In a sense, the law was laid down from that point. Subsequently, Arrow and PH players were guilty of matchfixing, and hence received punishments in accordance to that ‘law’.

Solo’s case was prior to the ‘law’, and there was no retrospective punishment for him. It also helped that his matchfixing was relatively minor, rather than the organised matchfixing by Arrow/PH. To contrast, it is like petty theft vs organised robberies. I believe if he did a savior, he would not have received his second chance.

I disagree on it being fair, for the record; these teams planned with their now DQed players, signing up with them at least a month ago and playing with them in tournaments and so forth and Valve’s response is basically “oops your player can’t play you have 2 days to find another player hope you’ve been scrimming with your sub and he isn’t just your manager or something!”

Yea, but I figured that’s when players knew Valve was going to be strict about matchfixing from that point.

also not comparable, solo threw one single game before this infamous TI4 meeting, the Filipino players threw multiple games after it; while they weren’t there, they could have easily heard about it.

That said, I think a lifetime ban is excessive(I also think a lifetime ban is excessive for the Arrow Gaming guys so hey)

Pretty major screw up. It’s fine to ban people, but it should at least be clear they’re banned so everyone can plan around it. And plainly it wasn’t clear if Valve’s own tournament organisers didn’t know.

Anyone beaten by Mineski-X should be pissed off too.

horrible fuck up I’d say, they have like a month to do it and they decide the timing was when one team already won the open qual and the other one even fucking directly invited to qual?

I’m happy that these players got banned, I don’t think they deserve to play pro Dota 2 ever again.

That said, of course it’s really shitty timing, and obviously if Valve acted right away it’d be ideal, but I still think this is a better course of action than doing nothing.

valve is actually terrible at dealing with everything related to administrating tournaments and in the past they made a lot of avoidable mistakes. they only make them once, which is a good thing and we can expect valve to put procedures in place to prevent incidents like this happening again but valve always fucks up once.

why solo isnt and those players are banned is explained by duck-. solos matchfixing forced valve to make a statement about what will happen to future matchfixing incidents. the guys that are banned now were smart enough to pull it of after valve clearly said that everyone who will do it is banned from all valve sponsored tournaments.

It’s unreasonable to believe that players who are turning pro even in this day and age knew about Valve’s private meeting with players at TI4. That said just like how ignorance of a law doesn’t satisfy being a defense, matchfixing is so clearly unethical it doesn’t bother me Valve is enforcing a policy once they finally acknowledged it.

The further bans seem to be after TR’s manager brought attention to those other players. Maybe Valve missed them in the first place or maybe they got some further information from the manager.

A really bad timing otherwise. Like that they didn’t fully disqualify the teams to give them a chance still, even though it’s gonna be really hard for them going forward.

[NEW] Dota 2 Shanghai Major preview – Groups C & D | shanghai major dota 2 – Vietnamnhanvan

Group Stage action at the Dota 2 Shanghai Major continues Friday night with Group C play, followed by Group D action on Saturday.

Group C preview

OG
(N0tail, Miracle-, Moon, Cr1t-, Fly)

Despite playing a relatively low number of games in 6.86, OG comes into Shanghai in good form — looking to become the first team ever to win back-to-back Majors after claiming the title at the Frankfurt Major in November.

The European-based squad took a lengthy break from competition after finishing fourth at The Summit 4 in December — the last premier tournament on patch 6.85 — and did not play together again until the MarsTV Dota 2 League Winter tournament (MDL) at the end of January. Despite the time off, OG did not look rusty at MDL, going 11-6 overall with a third-place finish.

OG has an incredibly strong lineup from top to bottom, but it’s their versatility that gives Fly an advantage when drafting. N0tail and Miracle-, the team’s top two cores, are interchangeable at positions 1 and 2. While Miracle- mans the mid lane a majority of the time, the team has no problem drafting him one of his safe-lane favorites like the Anti Mage, knowing that N0tail is perfectly capable of handling the mid lane with a hero like Death Prophet (3-0 this patch).

Even when Miracle- sticks to the mid, he almost always runs a hero capable of hard carrying into the late-game, on which he can show off his incredible farming skills. Miracle-‘s 604 gold per minute in 6.86 is by far the highest of any mid player competing at Shanghai.

Supports Fly and Cr1t- have also shown versatility lately, getting two of Captain’s Mode’s newest heroes into the mix. At MDL, Cr1t went 6-0 on the Earth Spirit after favoring more farm-heavy supports in 6.85, and Fly went 3-0 in his first three pro games on Oracle.

As for off-laner Moon, OG seems to still be figuring out what works best for him on this patch. He has played a total of 10 different heroes over 17 matches in 6.86, but his team has found the most success with him on roaming gankers such as Spirit Breaker, Earthshaker and Nyx Assassin (7-0 combined on those heroes).

LGD Gaming
(Sylar, Maybe, rOtk, MMY!, ddc)

LGD enters Shanghai flying a bit under the radar. The veteran Chinese squad did not receive a direct invite, forcing them to battle through qualifiers to make it this far, but they’ve gotten a lot of experience on 6.86 because of it. Overall, LGD has an impressive .649 win percentage over 57 games, and that includes a second-place finish at World Cyber Arena and a 3rd/4th at Star Ladder Season 13.

LGD is not a team that’s afraid to play outside the current meta-game, the best example being their employment of Sylar’s Terrorblade. It’s Sylar’s most-played hero this patch, with 13 matches (9-4 record) — more than twice as many as any other player — and he has produced 663 GPM with it. Overall, Sylar currently ranks second in GPM this patch with 605 GPM overall, trailing only Team Liquid’s MATUMBAMAN (minimum of 25 matches).

Mid-laner Maybe has also embraced an out-of-meta hero in the Shadow Fiend, going 5-2 on him this patch while the rest of Dota 2 has combined to go 32-29.

The hero to ban against LGD this tournament might very well be rOtk’s Dark Seer. LGD has posted a 14-2 record with rOtk on his signature hero in 6.86, but on his next five most-played heroes of the patch, they’ve gone 13-13 combined.

Newbee
(Hao, Mu, 2Lei, Chuan, le)

Patch 6.86 has seen past International winners Alliance return to the top of their game, and Newbee has a chance to make a comeback of their own in Shanghai. It’s been a tough run for the Chinese organization since winning The International 4 back in 2014, as they’ve produced poor results and seen multiple roster changes, but this group has shown the potential to hang with the best teams in Dota 2.

See also  Mike tyson vs peter mcneeley | mike tyson wiki

The return of Hao, the team’s former safe-lane carry, to the lineup has provided Newbee with much-needed stability. He has a deep hero pool, and he has shined on his most preferred hero (the Gyrocopter) this patch, going 7-2 with him. Newbee also has great results with Hao on the Weaver and Outworld Devourer (OD) in 6.86, with a 6-0 combined record including an incredible individual performance — 17 kills and three deaths — on the OD in a win over Evil Geniuses at MDL.

Look for the team’s star support, Chuan, to break out Zeus more often at Shanghai. Newbee went 3-0 with him on Zeus this patch, including wins over Evil Geniuses and Team Secret. Chuan secured 28 kills against just two deaths in those games.

Team Archon
(Jeyo, Monkeys-Forever, Moo, whitebeard, FLUFFNSTUFF)

Team Archon is undoubtedly one of the biggest underdogs heading into Shanghai’s Group Stages. The team, made up of four Americans and a Canadian (Jeyo), made an impressive run through the Americas Qualifier, beating both compLexity and Digital Chaos along the way. Since that point, however, they haven’t played any international competition and their best finish in a tournament was second place at BTS Americas 3. While they played well enough to reach the final, they were dispatched 3-1 by Digital Chaos — the only other relatively tough team at the competition.

Since qualifying for Shanghai, Archon has gone 6-8 overall, without playing a single game against any of the other teams attending the Shanghai Major.

Group D preview

Evil Geniuses
(Arteezy, Sumail, Universe, Fear, PPD)

Evil Geniuses (EG) stands out as one of the favorites to win the Shanghai Major. Since securing their position at the top of the Dota 2 world with a victory at The International 5, EG has remained one of the best teams in the world, maintaining consistent results with their new roster.

The move to replace Aui_2000 with Arteezy last August was met with a lot of criticism, but Arteezy has meshed well with his former teammates in a return to EG. Over the past six tournaments, the team has placed no worse than third (Frankfurt Major) and came in first or second in each of its past four.

It’s easy to look at EG’s 19-17 record in 6.86 (outside of Captain’s Draft 3.0) and see a struggling team, but only three of those 36 games came against opponents not competing at Shanghai. EG is a team that prides itself on figuring out opponents over time, so it’s not uncommon to see them drop non-elimination games as they study their competition.

Two heroes stand out when considering who will be first-phased banned against EG: the Earth Spirit and Faceless Void. In a transition to the 4 position, Fear has been dominant with the Earth Spirit in 6.86, going 5-1 in six games with an eye-popping 17.2 assists per game. As for the Faceless Void, he has been Universe’s most-played hero with a 6-1 record, turning team fights with clutch Chronospheres.

EG has picked from a wide array of heroes this patch, even bringing out a Fear Enigma that teams were forced to ban at MDL, and it’s clear that PPD values his teammates’ large hero pools. EG’s top-three most-picked heroes this patch are Vengeful Spirit, Batrider and Lone Druid, each of which has been played by multiple team members. Having this flexibility allows PPD to pick strong heroes early in drafts without revealing the team’s lanes.

Team Liquid
(MATUMBAMAN, FATA-, MinD_ContRoL, JerAx, KuroKy)

Many felt that Team Liquid deserved a direct invite to Shanghai, after KuroKy’s new stack went on a run last November and December with first-place finishes at the Dota 2 Champions League Season 6 and The Defense Season 5. Instead, Alliance received the nod from Valve, leaving Liquid to prove itself in the European qualifiers. Team Liquid qualified first by going 11-2 in a tough region with wins over Empire and Vega, as well as fellow Shanghai qualifiers Team Spirit.

Overall, it’s been a successful patch for Liquid, with a 38-13 overall record, including 9-4 against fellow Shanghai competitors. The team’s only four losses have come against Alliance and LGD Gaming.

Liquid will be in a strong first-phase drafting position come Saturday night; it plays three heroes who are essentially must-ban for their opponents.

Position 4 support JerAx has dominated this patch with the introduction of Earth Spirit to Captain’s Mode, going 10-4 with the hero. When the Earth Spirit has been banned, as they’ve come to expect, JerAx has fallen back to his Tusk without batting an eye; Liquid has won an even better percentage of games when JerAx plays Tusk, going 14-4.

Invoker will be a first-phase pick-and-ban material for many teams at Shanghai, but FATA-‘s results with the hero have been unparalleled. He has gone a patch-best 11-1 with the man-of-many-spells, while being one of only two players to average more than 10 kills per 35 minutes with him (MVP Phoenix’s MP is the other).

Io is the other hero who’s essentially a must-ban against Liquid — KuroKy is always willing to build a draft around the wisp’s ability to teleport with his teammates around the map. Io is KuroKy’s most-played support hero this patch, with a 5-2 record.

In games in which Liquid has first pick, its opponents will have to think hard about which of these three to ban out — and then figure out how to deal with the remainder.

Virtus.Pro
(Silent, G, DkPhobos, Lil, Fng)

Virtus.Pro has played just five competitive matches in 6.86 during a disappointing Star Ladder 13 group stage (2-3 record). Of those games, two came against fellow Group D participants — a win against complexity, and a loss to Liquid (43 kills to 16).

While it’s hard to say exactly what type of strategies the Eastern Europeans will come out with at Shanghai, Virtus.Pro has as good a shot as any team in Group D to reach the Winner’s Bracket. Since Silent joined the team as its position 1 carry, VP is 2-2 against Liquid, 1-0 against compLexity and 2-3 against Evil Geniuses in a heartbreaking best-of-five at the Summit 4 finals, in which VP let a 2-0 series lead evaporate. VP also holds an impressive 4-1 record over OG in that timeframe.

compLexity Gaming
(Chessie, Limmp, swindlezz, Zfreek, Handsken)

compLexity Gaming rounds out a highly talented Group D that is arguably the strongest group from top to bottom at Shanghai. compLexity opens Saturday night against a team that knows them well in Evil Geniuses, as respective captains swindlezz and PPD go back to their days playing Heroes of Newerth both with and against each other.

This most recent incarnation of the U.S.-based franchise came together in late November 2015, with the core of the team — American brothers swindlezz and Zfreek — being joined by three Swedes, including a second pair of brothers, Chessie and Limmp.

compLexity played consistently over this patch, going 42-21 overall, and Chessie has been particularly dominant on the Invoker, going 9-4 — second only to FATA- in individual win percentage on the hero among Shanghai participants (minimum 10 matches).

The only non-brother, Handsken, has actually spent the most time tethered to a teammate this patch, going a perfect 7-0 on Io, paired with a Tiny in six of those games.

swindlezz has been one of the strongest off-laners in 6.86, favoring the Beastmaster with an 8-2 record — and his 10 games on him are the most of any player competing at Shanghai.
