Everyone who enjoys Dota and The International benefits from giving third-party studios and unique casters a space to engage with their specific audiences.
Our rules didn’t consider how TI is different from other DOTA events throughout the year or how rebroadcasting affects global communities, and we’d like to change that based on the input we’ve heard. We agree that the success of these communities is beneficial to everyone.
For the remainder of the event, we will remove the 15-minute delay limitation for third-party streaming and reevaluate our overall strategy after The International.
