The Dota 2 Shanghai Major is the worst major Dota 2 LAN event to have been held and quite possibly one of the worst ever in eSports history, this was Twitch Drama on a whole other level. Below is a quick recap of the major failures that occurred:
- Petition to rename the Shanghai Major the Shanghai Shitshow
- Shanghai Major Stream Lagging
- GabeN, you felt the need to make a statement to call James an ass, how about you make a statement apologizing for how awful this major is?
- This is just sad
- Another Embarrassment
- Shout out to Valve for getting a special caster for dotatv!
- U want to be considered a real sport? Maybe begin with being on time then…
- Gabe was quick to fire James, but an apology?
- Were being trolled
- English Audio cast
- With 2GD this would have been barable
- Valve, You NEED to step in and do SOMETHING about this Production.
- I thought this was the kind of thing that the Majors were supposed to put an end to.
And only 2 days into the event the main host James “2GD” Harding was fired, the reason? A few crass jokes which you can view in the video below which shows why James “2GD” Harding was fired.
Now if you still haven’t had enough of the Shanghai Shitshow / Shitstorm you won’t be surprised to hear that even after the event finished the show still went on!
Организаторы решили никому не говоря ночью разобрать практис румы и выкинуть все личные вещи игроков в коридор. Это полный пиздец!

VP.Dramer: “Organaizers cleared out practice rooms at night without telling a single word to anybody, they just threw our personal stuff to the hall. That’s totally fucked up!”

Secret twitter guy: “This is what all the teams have woken up to this morning. These are the practice rooms. What remains is hopefully all our gear, we had laptops in this room and a ton of other personal stuff. No heads up about this was given to the teams. 👍”
“We’re currently trying to locate a bunch of our gear. We just saved 1437’s laptop charger which was bundled into a box with 100s of cables.”
“Teams are shouting at the staff here as the majority of everyone’s gear has been either packed away, lost or stolen.”
