dota 2 pro circuit

In a recent joint statement from Valve Corporation and Perfect World,  it has been revealed that a total of 46 players have been banned from participating in the Dota 2 Pro Circuit. The ban includes members from top teams like Knights and EHOME. It has been issued for various reasons like cheating and match-fixing. 

The list of bans includes 21 permanent bans, 13 two-year bans, and 12 one-year bans, prohibiting them from participating in any Dota 2 event hosted by Valve and Perfect World.

While Knights had previously been accused of match-fixing and cheating on multiple occasions, the ban on EHOME players has caught the entire Dota 2 community by surprise. Both organizations participated in the recently concluded Lima Major 2023.

The ban is not only a major setback for the players who have been banned but also for the teams they represent. This means that these teams will have to find new players to fill the void left by the banned players, which could negatively impact their performance in upcoming tournaments.

Here’s a list of all the players who got banned from Dota 2 Pro Circuit alongside the duration of their bans:
