Details of the Winter Major released
The website used for the Majors registrations have been updated with new information regarding the Winter Majors.
On the 6th of November, the official Dota2 twitter account twitted that the Majors registration site has been updated with information for the Winter season. The new information on the site details the dates for the transfer period after the Fall Majors and the Winter Majors, it also contained some new policy updates.
The registrations and transfer period will open on the 22nd of November (one day after the conclusion of the Fall Majors) and will close about two weeks later, on the 8th of December; the teams will be locked "until the first week of March, right after the Winter Major concludes." On the 22nd of November, all players will be viewed as free agents by the system, meaning that players who are not changing teams will need to re-register under their team.
The policy updates concerns substitute players and open qualifier teams. Teams going through the open qualifiers are now able to register up to two substitute players but may not use them for the open and regional qualifiers - the subs can only be used for the main event.
