Old G has been disqualified from Division II of the DPC season due to an unforeseen issue.
The team did not have enough players to participate in a critical tiebreaker match, resulting in their demotion.
Kitrak and Resolut1on, two players on Old G’s roster, will be participating in the Berlin Major as stand-ins, leaving the team short of players.
The decision has sparked controversy within the Dota 2 community, with some questioning the fairness of PGL’s decision to make exceptions to the rules and demote Old G.
Valve, the game’s developer, has made exceptions in the past, which has only added to the frustration felt by Old G and its supporters.
Ceb, a star player on Old G, took to Twitter to express his disappointment with PGL’s decision, stating that the organization had provided no support besides reiterating the rules.
While some members of the community supported Ceb, others defended PGL’s decision, arguing that rules must be followed.
The demotion of Old G will likely impact viewership, as the team has several star players, including Ceb and Topson, and is highly sought after in the region.
With the Berlin Major coming up, the implications of this decision could be far-reaching.
