please allow us to express our gratitude for this wonderful tournament, the match
is really wonderful, and we really looking forward to the entree in Key Arena.
we also noticed that although Valve has made comprehensive plan and strict rules
to make sure the match could go on smoothly and players wouldn’t be disturbed
during their match, a media named Gamefy
maliciously eavesdropped the
drafting discussion of Team DK before
their last playoff match versus Evil
Genius through a camera installed in the matching room without any player’s
consent, and posted the video on the internet (to be precisely, Youku, the largest
video sharing website in China).
is not a hearsay like “DK has been boycott by other Chinese teams”, or “Chinese
plays cheers for DK’s losing”, the Chinese dota community knew about it in
short time and Imbatv followed into the
situation and interviewed with 71, DK’s coach, who was very angry about the
leakage. Although Gamefy deleted the video when DK protest against it, the
video can still be googled, and thousands of dota fans watched the video
through internet, and there are also rumors that the content of the video has
been translated into English and posted on Gosu. DK’s core strategy and their drafting ideas has been completely exposed
in this video, which would put them in a very negative situation in their following
games not only against EG but also against other teams.
are wondering since there are strict discipline that only players are allowed in the gaming room during the match (even
coaches are not allowed), how could Gamefy put a camera in the room? Is Gamefy’s
action violate the rule? If not,
does it mean media has the privilege to record any information of any teams
before, during and after their match? If they did violate the rule, is there
any punishment for such behavior (due to the severe consequence)? It also needs to mention in a video they
posted on June the 11th, they also recorded IG’s discussion after
their match against NaVi, but Ferrari_430 noticed it and left the room , so not much IG’s
thoughts and idea has been leaked. We seriously ask Valve to investigate Gamefy’s
behavior and let the dota community know the final results.
(around nine hours after they posted the eavesdropping video), Gamefy still doesn't
give any explanation to their behavior. Since you and Valve has been considered
as “conscience of game industry” among Chinese dota fans, we believe we could
rely on you to make TI4 a fair and pleasant tournament for the players, the fans
and the whole community by getting rid of the black sheep.
