DOTA 2 Team Disqualified After Fake COVID-19 Test
European DOTA is back in the spotlight for another faux pas after a team called Burjui that was participating in a Dreamhack event was found to have submitted a fake COVID-19 test that falsely stated that one of their players had COVID, when it was in fact a forged result.

A player with COVID 19 would have constituted a “special circumstance” which is how they would have skirted that four game sub rule.
