The news about the cancellation of True Sight itself is not that important, if it's true at all. But if you add that to everything else that happened this year and last year, then to say that I'm worried would be too mild. And I know that many talents, members of the community feel the same way. We can't talk about everything, but the lack of attention to Dota lately... It feels like the attitude [of the developers] has changed, it's not even questionable, it's definitely changed. And I know about the news that will come from non-Valve after The International and cause unrest in the community. The domino principle works, which began with problems with stickers.
I think after TI the decisive moment will come. If a huge patch comes out with real terrain changes... If it doesn't, it's scary. I'm scared because this is our life, we dedicated our whole lives to this. So it's scary when a company that controls everything becomes somewhat unstable. It's impossible to trace what she even wants to do.
I think the answer is simple: Gabe has to say he wants TI in New Zealand and he will
The country is very far away from everything. Perhaps the average flight time for the participants will be longer than in any other place. It was also difficult to get into the country during COVID
In terms of infrastructure and what the country has to offer, I think a lot of people would love this place. Well, for TI you can go anywhere. If the location is the only negative, then there are no particular problems. There is infrastructure, a good accessible arena and so on.
