the ACE DotA Professional League starts today in China, which will last about four months, is the most professional league I`ve ever seen before. (excellent stream/excellent commentator/excellent process design/excellent live quality etc) all the power houses are involved and everything seems so damn perfect!

if it happened in last year, it would be most welcome event ever. however, this event will definetely slow down the improvemt of DOTA2 of these best DOTA1 Chinese teams. not offense, although Ehome is doing well in DOTA2, personally i think teams like DK,LGD,TONGFU,and IG are relatively more potential in the future. (I do appreciate X! and 357 a lot, but the four teams mentioned above all are totally made by famous or damn good players). obviously, the reason why Ehome gives up DOTA1 is that they cannot compete in this field, which indicates there are still more good players in DOTA1 scene in China.

With much less training of DOTA2 than other teams around the world, I have no confidence in these best DOTA1 teams. maybe someone would argue that they will train both games, but i doubt the quality of this kind of mix training a lot. although I thought this year was a good time for Chinses teams to prove things in DOTA2 and fight for $1.5 millions, the distraction of ACE destoried my hope.

how can you have confidence in them after checking their poor playing hours of their DOTA2 accounts

PS: I certainly trust Ehome in DOTA2, but they are so damn alone. you may ask why cant those Chinese teams do a simple prize caculation and choose DOTA2. someone pointes out a issue that its very difficult to get an American VISA and its actually reasonable. besides, its probably not rational to give up DOTA1 just for fewer events outside China at present, although there is one with $1.5 millions (but also high risk and difficulty).

Companies would think long term. IG, DK Ehome and LGD would stick to dota 2.
45k Dollars a year vs a million dollars a year not to mention the incoming dota 2 tournaments once it is released.

I don't think Valve organized TI2 to be in US, without having in mind the Chinese teams and their issues of getting to US. So let's hope that they will find a solution so we get the best tournament possible.

I think the immigration would loosen a bit for them given that a Chinese team (ehome) already attended last TI, I hope none of them would have problems with this. That's the reason why they invited Chinese teams so early.

he has a legit point; I feel it will take a long time before Chinese truly shift, even next year once again they may get invited to Ti-3 based on their Dota1 accomplishments.

In a few months or so, all of the dota 1 heroes will be added to dota 2 and the only difference between the two will be cosmetic. It won't matter which game the chinese are playing on, they can change back and forth in a few games and not skip a beat.
