There’s been a lot of drama surrounding the Dota 2 Bali Major 2023 after an issue where BetBoom’s drivers accidentally opened the tournament’s Twitch stream while waiting for Technical Pause during their match against Tundra.
While the Aui2000’s computer seems to have a problem during the race, causing
Technical Pause ensues, the live broadcast shows the riders showing Pure streaming from Nix, the Russian streamer who is watching the race with a 5 minute delay coming up.
The match ended with BetBoom winning against Tundra, however due to a violation the result was changed to Betboom forfeiting and going down to face Azure Ray in the bottom bracket.
Currently, after being dropped to the bottom bracket, Betboom had to send Resolut1on as their stand-in instead of Pure, who was banned from the tournament, but managed to hold off Azure Ray with a 2-1 scoreline.
As a result, Betboom is eliminated and will have to compete hard for Dota Pro Circuit 2023 points in order for the team to qualify for The International 2023.
The situation is pretty dire for Betboom, because if Quest Esports wins it will advance to the Bali Major finals.
Betboom will not get a ticket to TI.
