Valve considers moving the main Dota 2 tournament from the USA
Due to the migration law in the USA, issued by Donald Trump, the management of Valve is worried about the capability to hold The International 7 in the country. There has been a press conference recently, where representatives of Valve Corporation have stated that they are considering the option of moving the largest annual Dota 2 tournament to another country.
After the order was signed in January, entrance to the country is restricted not only for refugees but also for citizens of 7 Islamic countries. It hinders the movement of eSports industry representatives as well as company members. Moreover, Valve fears that current situation will influence the visa availability for representatives of eSports organizations from other countries.back to list
