Analysts reported a decrease in the number of Dota 2 players online. In February 2021, there were 27 thousand fewer of them than in the previous month – then an average of 400 thousand participants was recorded. Experts noted that the indicator of the second month of winter was the worst since January 2020 (the average number of users is 378,000). Recall that an attempt at bribery was made public in the eSports club Imperial Pro Gaming. The team was offered 12,000 dollars for losing a Dota 2 match. Earlier, it was reported that bookmakers had begun accepting bets on the games of the Chinese Dota 2 tournament.
