B8 Esports made but another big change to its Dota 2 roster earlier this week, however it seems that the group missed one key aspect of the Dota Professional Circuit: possession of their regional league spot.
Within the group’s most up-to-date transfer, B8 moved Alimzhan “watson” Islambekov, Yaroslav “Limitless” Parshin, and Sergey “[T]SA” Timchenko to the inactive roster, leaving the group with solely its co-founder and Dota legend Dendi on the energetic roster. That apparently modified earlier in the present day when followers noticed that Dendi was kicked from the roster of B8 on Valve’s official DPC group registry.
Based on the up to date registry, Dendi was kicked by former B8 participant and CIS veteran Aleksandr “Nofear” Churochkin as a result of he formally owned the slot registered to compete within the upcoming DPC season. It’s because he was the captain of the XactJlepbI that merged with B8 forward of the 2021 DPC’s second season.
B8 merged with XactJlepbI, a group that already had a slot within the decrease division secured as a result of they averted relegation, to keep away from being relegated out of the league following an eighth-place end in season one. This transfer was criticized on the time as a result of it allowed B8 to skip open qualifiers totally after a poor displaying, nevertheless it was allowed and B8 proceeded to complete sixth in season two of the regional league.
However as a result of the spot B8 was taking part in with was technically XactJlepbI’s registration, Nofear nonetheless owns the spot and kicked Dendi—and can doubtless have the ability to retain management of it heading into the 2022 DPC. Or at the very least that’s how B8 is approaching the state of affairs, noting that the participant in query, doubtless Nofear, didn’t need to negotiate for the DPC spot.
“The slot below which we performed for the final six months is registered by somebody who didn’t need to negotiate. Sure, this case appears bizarre,” B8 said. “We don’t need to argue nor waste time on it now. Our foremost focus is the Dota 2 roster.”
The group is now going to double down on its rebuilding efforts, with hopes that this will likely be an expertise that may assist everybody concerned develop.
If this transfer stands, Dendi and B8’s new roster might want to play within the open qualifiers for the decrease division of the CIS regional league when the following DPC season opens its doorways. In the event that they fail to qualify, they are going to be unable to compete within the DPC till the following spherical of open qualifiers and will likely be relegated to taking part in in smaller occasions for a number of months.
