The Valve Championship is the latest game event that enforces strict rules.
This week, Valve announced that the prestigious Dota 2 global competition requires all participants to be disguised and vaccinated to enter.
According to Dota 2, anyone participating in the October match at the National Stadium in Bucharest, Romania, must be at least 10 days away from the final vaccination, and participants must have a vaccination certificate (which must be in English or Roman ) with a personal photo to reach the venue of the event and the competition arena. All participants must also wear an anti-vaccination mask and a wristband with their registration tag. Additional security protocols will be implemented during competitions. In its 10th year, The International brings together the best Dota 2 teams from around the world to compete for a multi-million dollar prize. But over the past year, Valve hasn't had an easy time with its annual COVID restrictions. The company's initial plans to host the 10th international tournament in Stockholm earlier this summer were scrapped after the Swedish Sports Federation decided not to allow esports into its official body - a move that would mean visas for anyone traveling to the tournament. .

Valve's subsequent requests for intervention were denied by the Swedish government because the company announced a move to Romania in July. (The 2020 tournament, which was also scheduled to be held in Stockholm, has been postponed indefinitely in April 2020 due to safety concerns in the global pandemic.) Are gaming events that are tightening COVID restrictions. For example, PAX West in Seattle this summer required participants to use vaccine proof or a negative PCR test for entry, as well as an anti-vaccination wristband with their registration tag.
The 10th International Group Stage, which does not appear to be open to the public, takes place October 7-10, while the main stage event (the only stage where Valve sells tickets) is split between two weeks of October. 12-15. The final is scheduled for October 16 and 17. Main stage tickets will go on sale on September 22 and are sold in three separate two-day packages.
