The eXperience cancels DotA

Statement from The eXperience:

Despite the huge interest of The-eXperience 2009 with Call of Duty 4 and FIFA 09 being sold out, and Counter-Strike:Source and Trackmania following up with both tournaments almost sold out, the DotA ticketsale has been an unexpected challenge.


Due to lack of signups we had to temporarily disband the DotA tournament a few months ago. However we would very much like to maintain DotA in our tournament schedule and as a result of this we decided to enter into dialogue with the community in order to find a solution. The feedback we got from teams was very positve, as well as our local partner Interpool stepped in to support attending teams with partial coverage of their transport worth 150 Euro per attending team.


Despite the generous offer from our sponsor and the effort from admins and many other persons within the DotA community, no tickets were sold. We do not know what went wrong, however due to the lack of signups, it is with sadness that we have decided to cancel the DotA-tournament at The-eXperience 2009.


Defense of the Ancients is a magnificent game, which we believe have huge potential as part of eSport and how we see The-eXperience develope in the future. We are already looking into how we can make sure DotA is on the program in 2010.
