The Dota 2 Major qualifiers are currently underway in each of the six regions. The European qualifiers are down to their last three teams.NIP, Secret and Alliance have already confirmed their presence at the upcoming Kuala Lumpur Major. However, an incident took place during the Lower Bracket round 3 matches between the Ninjas in Pyjamas and Lithium.

During the game, after the pick and Ban Phase, two members Lithium were not present at their desks. As per the game’s coding, it ended up randomly picking heroes for these two players. Obviously, this severely affects the team’s performance as they have to play in a role that they are not used to. Team Lithium ended up asking for a remake as they had randomly picked their heroes.


Follow the Rule-book.

However, there is nothing in the FaceIT rules which allow for a remake if you end up picking the wrong characters. And that is exactly what Peter “ppd” Dager mentioned to the admins. He refused to allow a remake of the game. There are rules specified for such situations and nowhere was it written that they would allow for a game remake.

You can read the full Chat log in this particular match here. PPD categorically denies extra pause time for the Radiant side [ Lithium] while reminding the admins of their job. Even at The International, there were no remakes and EG was forced to play with random roles.

The Kuala Lumpur Major will take place from 9th to 18th of November, 2018. It will be the first Major of the current Dota Pro Circuit Season with a prize pool of $1 million.

Admins should stick to the rules

This instance highlights the problems in an arbitrary decision-making process by in-game admins. We have seen such situations multiple times in the past in various esports titles. The establishment of rules is important to prevent a disparity in the individual human decision-making process. Streamlining the entire process especially via set rules is a sure shot way of ensuring impartiality.

At the same time, these matches are just online qualifiers. So any delay caused by one team should not be grounds for a remake of the game. It is unfair to the other team to wait for the player to come back and then have the remake the game. If a team makes a mistake, then they should pay the consequences as well. 

The Ninjas in Pyjamas won the match and the series [2-0] to secure their place at the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018.
