China wants to be the leading Dota nation again
In a longer statement on twitlonger, ImbaTV explained their motivation to start a new all-Chinese Dota league:
According to them, China has lost its special position in the Dota cosmos as the world's most competitive and best region. As a counter-measure, ImbaTV and the cooperating esports organisations want to promote new talent.
The China Dota2 Development League is going to start July 16. After The International 2019 the tournament organiser is going to make further improvements to the league and will possibly include even more teams in its ecosystem.
What do you think about the new Chinese league? Is it going to bring China back to the top in Dota?
