Tournament operator ESL asked independent streamers to set a 15-minute delay on all unofficial ESL One Germany 2020 broadcasts. The organizers had to return to this requirement, as the automatic delay in DotaTV stopped working correctly.
“Due to recurring issues with the 15-minute DotaTV delay, we would like to ask Community Streamers to re-apply the original 15-minute delay to their ESL One Germany Streams”
On October 15, Valve released a Dota 2 patch that added the ability to enable an automatic 15-minute delay for DotaTV in the tournament match lobby. Thanks to this feature, streamers didn’t have to expose it themselves.
ESL One Germany 2020 for Europe runs online from October 5 to November 1. 16 teams compete for a prize pool of $400,000.
