Esports News – Imba TV, a Chinese broadcasting company and esports event organizer, teams up with eight local and international professional esports organizations to train and promote amateur players through the China Dota 2 Development League.
The introduction of the new organization was led by Lingxiang Zhou, Founder of Imba TV. In a press release, he commented: “People may think that Imba TV has been doing ‘stupid things’ for China’s Dota because the viewership of this kind of tournaments is much less than the viewership of traditional esports tournaments. However, we are proud of the fact that we have cultivated many famous Dota 2 players such as Fade, BoBoka, and XinQ. We will continue to organize tournaments for Chinese young teams because the ‘stupid things’ have to be done by someone.”
Mission and Vision
Imba TV joins forces with the following Dota 2 teams: LGD Gaming, Vici Gaming, Keen Gaming, Royal Never Give Up, Team Aster, EHOME, Invictus Gaming, and Newbee Esports Club to find new, young, and talented Dota 2 players. These players will be featured in the China Dota 2 Development League on July 16, 2019.
Imba TV is on a mission to improve the competition format of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) season after The International 2019 (TI9) and when more organizations get involved. The company’s new organization will mainly focus on the betterment of the Chinese Dota 2 scene—with a special emphasis on promoting young talents and rookie players. Any local player residing in China who fits Imba TV’s requirements in age and qualification standards can join the organization and compete on local and international events.
In addition to cultivating young gamers, Imba TV also aims to track down and put an end on the most common illegal actions rampant in Dota 2 tournaments—such as cheating, swapping accounts, and match-fixing.
If this setup and the organization succeed, Imba TV can stop professional teams and organizations from using developmental leagues as a method to keep veteran players as alternatives for their main rosters. Young players will then have a chance to compete at bigger arenas. Ultimately, China Dota 2 Development League can change the talent system in Dota 2 for the better.
