After it has already hit numerous other events, it now also hits the Dota Pro Circuit. The Los Angeles Major has been postponed indefinitely by Valve and ESL.

Even before the new restrictions were in place, the ESL was considering holding the tournament without spectators due to the corona epidemic. The decision to postpone the Major, which has now been implemented, is mainly explained by the travel problems for the majority of the players.
