Broadcast talent affected by Chongqing Major drama
The build-up to the event was partly overshadowed by Chongqing Major drama that resulted in TNC Predator's Kuku being banned from the tournament in China. Filipino Kuku used a racist, anti-Chinese insult during an online match in November 2018.
It was suspected the Chinese authorities had played a part, prompting some members of the Dota 2 talent pool to boycott the event, meaning the broadcast talent for the Chongqing Major includes some less familiar names.
The English speaking broadcast team features Richard Campbell as desk host, while casters are Gabriel "Lyrical" Cruz, Ioannis "Fogged" Loucas, Toby "TobiWan" Dawson and Kyle Freedman.
Analysts will be David "GoDz" Parker, Dominik "lacoste" Stipić, Alan "Nahaz" Bester and Dominik "Black^" Reitmeier, with Lawrence "Malystryx" Phillips as interviewer.
Johan "Weppas" Westberg, Jonathan "PimpmuckL" Liebig and Aleksandar "Bukka" Bukurecki will be observers.
