4D esports confirms payment of dues to South American Dota 2 teams


Better late than never.

The organizer of the South American DPC for 2021-22, 4D esports has confirmed on Twitter they have allegedly now paid all pending dues to the participating teams.
For the past several weeks, multiple teams from South America have came forth to claim non-payment. The DPC season ended around July and several teams had not been paid as of November. 4D esports had initially claimed they had not received promised funding from their sponsors as one of the reasons for the non-payment.

We acknowledge the immeasurable discomfort that we caused for the teams that didn’t get paid on time for the SA DPC 2021-22 Tour 3 and own this huge mistake. As this is a public matter since our last post, we want to share with the community that, as of today (Dec 14th, 2022), all of the seven remaining teams have been paid for their prize pool earnings.

What's next?

The tournament organizer went on to commit to ensuring they will not fail like this in the future.

Our commitment is to not fail like this ever again. We hope that we can rebuild the trust of the part of the community that felt betrayed. We have been a part of you since our foundation and that’s why we can relate with all of you when these kinds of mistakes hurt the region so much. It’s our duty now to keep working as hard as possible to never let this happen again and keep communicating publicly if we have to acknowledge a mistake or celebrate a victory.

The 2023 DPC will have a format very similar to the present year. However, the regional leagues will be much shorter - three weeks compared to the six weeks per league in 2022. This will allow teams to have more competition in significantly less time, a demand by many pros in 2022.
