Valve released its long awaited The International 2022 (TI11) Battle Pass yesterday, with expectations that records would be broken yet again.
However, some parts of the Dota 2 community were less than pleased with the content that was being released by the Dota 2 developers.
Wildcard Gaming’s captain, Samuel "Sammyboy" Anderson spoke out about the issue and PGL’s decision to acquire a betting sponsorship for TI11’s Regional Qualifiers.
The community expressed their disappointment since many usual features in the Battle Pass, like custom lane creeps, and map terrain were left out.
“The battle pass sucks, PGL sucks, betting sponsor for TI sucks... don't get me started on greed.[by Valve]” said Sammyboy when expressing his frustrations on Twitter.
"This saddens me, all these years…" said Tommy "Taiga" Lee when agreeing on Sammyboy's statement regarding Valve and PGL's decisions.
"Valve is really allowing a betting sponsor to advertise via anything TI related despite oppositions in regulations?" questioned coach Aaron "Clairvoyance" Kim after the PGL announcement.
