The CIS squad found a way of avoiding the clearly stacked European qualifiers for the Boston Major and will play for their chance in the Americas region brackets.
According to DotaBlast, Prodota Gaming decided to take advantage of the open qualifier rules that do not forbid a team from registering in a different region than their own. As a result, the squad signed up for the Americas open qualifiers after checking with both Valve and FACEIT.
“We have decided to take our chances in the Americas open qualifiers. 'Open' means 'open' and nowhere is it clearly specified that changing regions is against the rules. There should be equal chances for everyone. We think the system is flawed and needs to be changed” said Prodota Gaming to DotaBlast.
