DOTA 2 Caster fired by Valve


James “2GD” Harding a well-known Dota 2 Announcer won’t be returning in Shanghai Major, and in any Valve events.


According to James’s twitter post:

And Gabe Newell confirmed this by saying “We won’t be working with him again”

Both James and Gabe shared their own side in their Reddit posts:

James. We’ve had issues with James at previous events. Some Valve people lobbied to bring him back for Shanghai, feeling that he deserved another chance. That was a mistake. James is an ass, and we won’t be working with him again.

And also a reply post from James:

This is why my statement is taking sometime. It seems more personal than professional. So I will respond. Just for the record gabe, I don’t think you are an ass. But I don’t think you are right about me (well maybe you are a bit of an ass for calling me an ass, but let’s find out what others think shall we?). Brb

And also Gabe is firing the production team behind the Shanghai Major. KetTV is also same company behind Nanyang Championsips in Singapore.

As long as we’re firing people, we are also firing the production company that we’ve been working with on the Shanghai Major. They will be replaced, and we hope to get this turned around before the main event.
As always, I can be reached at
