It has become known that organizers of the Major tournament by Beyond The Summit, that had been scheduled for the beginning of March 2018, had made a decision to cancel the championship. BTS was going to host the competition together with NGE, however, both organizations found the championship meaningless.
The comment of one of the organizers, David «LDeeep» Gorman:
«BTS was exploring the possibility of running a major together with NGE in March 2018 as part of the DOTA Pro Circuit. Unfortunately, the event ended up not making sense for us and NGE, so it won't be happening. We're excited for the upcoming crop of Pro Circuit events, and we look forward to making the DOTA Summit 8 a fantastic and entertaining event for teams and fans alike. See you guys at our Winter WonderLAN this December!»
The tournament should be hosted on March 8-11. 1500 points and $1,000,000 were planned to be up for grabs at the championship. In such a way, only one Major event will be run in the first month of spring and it will be carried out by Perfect World.
