ReDeYe will not be hosting The Boston Major

Paul 'ReDeYe' Chaloner announces he will not be reprising his role as host for The Boston Major this year.

The Boston Major has only recentlybeen  announced and it just keeps on piling up the potential disappointments. From being in the USA and not in Frankfurt, Germany, like last year, to teams skipping out on other events because of clashing schedules and today’s announcement that Paul ‘ReDeYe’ Chaloner will not be hosting, there are a lot of changes being made from last time around.

After a streak of big events, hosted by ESL and Valve, including TI6, ReDeYe has become a beloved host in the eyes of the Dota 2 community, both for his style and commitment to the scene. It was almost expected for him to continue his role in all major Valve events, but his streak of Dota 2 hosting will end with the Boston Major. In his Facebook post he explains, that it was Valve’s decision to try someone new.

Valve were kind enough to let me know personally in advance that I wouldn't be required for the event. They want to try someone else out and this seemed like a good event to do it and I totally respect their decision to do that.

With all the recent drama surrounding the Dota 2 community, it is good to have something clear for once and most of the information upfront. While Valve haven’t announced their Boston Major Host yet, we are expecting this soo. There are no hurt feelings between both parties and as for the fans, Valve probably has something up their sleeve. ReDeYe himself admits that taking your position for granted invites sloppiness and that competition drives improvement, delivering a better experience to us all. He ends his statement expressing a desire to continue his work for Dota 2 and that he is up for grabs in the upcomming 2017.

    1st...Yeah sad that we will not be having him!
  • Professor "changeling" Chaos ,
    Welcome back 2GD?!?! ;) Im kinda curious on why they wouldnt bring in someone as Redeye again?! He is a veteran in the E-Sports scene, with a huge amount experience and imo, one of the most professional guys out there and for my test, among my favorit hosts for major events in the scene. They must have a good reason, want to try something new or whatever.

      Valve making amends with 2GD would be too good. We need that positive and constructive turn around. An early Christmas for every Quake and Dota 2 fan. If only Sir ReDeYe love New York and Boston like I do. I mean their locals are very particular with how they speak English. He will surely be back next year. ^_^

    As the scene grows, There are lots of caster & hosts, which valve cannot invite every single one of them to a valve event. Redeye was great im sure valve will invite him for the other events. nothing wrong with switching to someone else though. And this is a proper response from a matured person.

    ReDeYe is funny and interesting host He's only lacking in dota 2 knowlage but you can see he is trying to keep up..
  • Audy "AudigyT" Bharksuwana ,
    I kinda feel like they should try out other people for the Majors and have Redeye for the International. But at the same time I do like the way he hosts etc.
