Region-lock ruling conundrum forces Fart Studios to forfeit DPC games
The meme team dream could be doomed.
Since the introduction of the Dota Pro Circuit’s Tour system in Jan. 2021 there have been plenty of questions about how certain rules could impact team composition with the increased focus on regional play throughout each season. Now, one specific rule has forced one of Dota 2’s silliest rosters to forfeit a game and will potentially endanger their run—partially because some of the players work in event commentary.
The commentary portion of the conversation isn’t really the reason North America’s Fart Studios, the actual name of a team playing for a spot in the region’s Division One, had to forfeit their second series of the Spring Tour against Sand King Gómez. That ruling was made by organizer PGL since FS’s players did meet Valve’s regional eligibility rule.
