Valve decides to postpone DPC in Eastern Europe
As the invasion of Russia in Ukraine continues one, Valve has decided to postpone the Eastern Europe Dota Pro Circuit.
Valve has decided to postpone the Eastern Europe Dota Pro Circuit following the recent events in Ukraine. The news itself was posted to Twitter by EPICENTER, who organized the event, saying that the decision was made by Valve ahead of the regional league open qualifiers. “We have been informed by Valve that the DPC Eastern European Spring Tour is postponed indefinitely. We will be back soon with details on the new start dates for open qualifications and the main part of the regional tournament.”
If Valve decided to go ahead with the event after all, things would get rather difficult as a lot of players (and teams for that matter) who are playing in the CIS region have roots in Ukraine or Russia, with the majority being the latter. EPICENTER has promised they’ll be sharing an update and new details on the event and qualifiers soon.

The next tournament on the schedule is the Gamers Galaxy Invitational Series Dubai, which has also been impacted by the recent events, as Team Spirit will be without their player Miroslaw “Mira” Kolpakov, who currently remains stuck in Ukraine. They’ll be playing with Vladimir “RodjER” Nikogosian instead. Team Spirit also came forward to say they’ll be donating any winnings to the Red Cross.
