Dota 2 has cancelled its first Major for the DPC Winter Tour 2022. The decision was made amidst growing pandemic concerns.

Covid19 started in China in December 2019. It’s been more than two years now, yet the pandemic always finds a way to evolve.

The current tsunami of infections is affecting amenities and lifestyles worldwide. With the infection and death toll rising, Valve has decided to act responsibly.

Valve has decided to cancel its first major for the 2021-2022 season amidst growing Covid19 concerns. The news came in along with 12th January 2022 DPC updates.

DPC Winter Major 2022 has been cancelled.

Currently, Valve has provided us with the undermentioned info. As it stands, all LANs are cancelled until further notice.

As the Winter Tour of the Dota Pro Circuit 2021-2022 season draws to a close, there is nothing else to look forward to. Valve made the difficult decision to cancel the first Major.

While hopes were high of an international LAN event, it is now cancelled. Consequently, the discovery and spread of new strains of COVID-19 and the resulting increase of travel restrictions have made LAN unfeasible.

Also, the same is true for all qualified teams currently playing DPC Winter Tour Qualifiers 2022.

As there is no major, Tour 1 concludes with the end of regional leagues. Players participating in Fantasy receive their rewards before the start of Tour 2.
