Lost in Translation? What’s Happening With WCA 2015?

11:17 AM December 15, 2015

Earlier today (GMT +8), December 15, Matthew “Cyborgmatt” released a series of tweets about the upcoming World Cyber Arena 2015, two of which are particularly striking:

  1. No Dota 2 on the main stage? Considering that the Dota 2 tournament has a total prize pool of 4,300,000 Yuan (approximately 665, 000 USD) compared to their Hearthstone tournament’s 1,400,000 Yuan (approximately 220,000 USD), what’s the rationale behind the tournament organizer’s decision to not hold a single tournament on the main stage?
  2. No Passive Play. What does passive play even mean? Is turtling not allowed? Since when has a Dota 2 tournament not allowed this kind of gameplay?

You can check WCA’s page for Dota 2, and their Hearthstone page for comparison.

Is all this another case of translation gone awry? One can hope the organizers of WCA 2015 can clarify.
