They planned their event months ahead, but Valve could have destroyed in less than a day. However, the production crew didn't give up and talked to Valve itself for a change – and it worked! It seems like Slacks put all his effort in changing Valve's mind about the scheduling.
I think @SirActionSlacks deserves a round of applause. Incredible job to turn this around!!!!! Valve qualifier dates moved.— Malystryx / Lawrence (@MalystryxGDS) September 12, 2019
Don't want to compliment him too often, but this is honestly god's work. Good job brother. PROUD OF YOU <3
Midas Mode 2, LETS GOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Another tournament got canceled
Valve changed the date of the qualifier to October 5-October 10, which means Midas Mode will have less problems recruiting teams to join their out-of-the-box tournament mode.
They also explained their decision to move the qualifier: another LAN tournament that originally was scheduled on the second week of October has since been canceled. This is why Valve was able to move their qualifier to a date which won't interfere with Midas Mode 2.0.
