Yesterday, Valve announced the dates for the first DPC qualifiers for the 2019-2020 season, and the first set of qualfiers clashed bang on with a project that a big chunk of the Dota 2 community has been looking forward to – Midas Mode 2.0. When people realized this, there was an uproar on Reddit and Twitter to change the dates of the qualifiers and Valve has actually gone and done it.

The Dota 2 Twitter account also mentioned the cancellation of a LAN tournament in the second week of October. With the qualifier dates changing, Valve will be rescheduling the Minor and Major accordingly to make sure teams get a decent number of days between online and LAN events. Midas Mode 2.0 is scheduled from the 24th of September to the 2nd of October. To make sure the event doesn’t clash with the DPC qualfiers, the new set of qualfiers will be held from the 5th of October to the 10th of October.

Needless to say, Moonduck TV and SirActionSlacks are over the moon! Slacks took to Twitter to thank the Dota 2 community and Valve for the support they have shown to make sure Midas Mode 2.0 carries on smoothly.

Sir sadim’s most complicated plan yet has been foiled. Thank you @DOTA2 and the community, this has always been for you and I am so happy to be able to put this on. Now it is time to get all the teams that dropped back on board and to put on THE BEST TOURNEY IN THE WORLD.

Now that the event is back on track, the question that everyone is asking is who will be participating in Midas Mode 2.0? The last Midas Mode saw big names like Na’Vi, Team Liquid and OG participate. This year’s teams are still are bit of a mystery.

Sooooo which pro teams wants to come play at Betway Midas Mode 2? pic.twitter.com/TncsrXZ0K5— moonduckTV (@moonduckTV) September 12, 2019 https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Considering the fact that a lot of the top teams are skipping the first set of Minor and Major, they will probably deviate towards Midas Mode 2.0. Irrespective of who plays though, looking at the uniqueness of the event and the fact that Moonduck TV and SirActionSlacks are pouring their heart and soul into it, it is bound to be a memorable one.
