Uh the place they do TI is under renovation. And they should play in China occasionally regardless imo

I agree, I hate this timezone, it's the worst, but china is a big market for dota 2 so it's cool it's there now and then. EU next, then back to NA for a few in a row imo. (I'm EU if you want to judge my biases :P)

Even Vancouver would have been easy trip.

China deserves a TI but I'll selfishly complain I can't drive an hour and go see live Dota

That I do not agree with. Rodjer straight hosed up several times, once with a combo and then with getting caught.

I can tell you that moving your multi-million dollar tournament to a completely different country than the one your company is based in and dealing with all the government regulations and procedures and tax poo poo and approvals you need to go through on top of the language barrier was not done because well our first choice venue isn't available so eh let's just go to China, why not

It was 100000% a money decision

I only went the first day because the second the weather was lovely and I was too lazy to drive.

I'm guessing it was the last Dota lan where you could just stand behind all the players watching them play pools over their shoulders like it was StarCraft
