In a submit made on the Chinese Dota 2 site, Valve have acknowledged that they are going to be briefly taking down the Treasures part of its retailer with the intention to meet “national requirements” put ahead by the Ministry of Culture. According to 1 translation we tried on Babelfish, the shop will probably be “off the shelf for the time being”, which will be taken to imply that gamers will probably be unable to purchase extra Treasures till the modifications have been made. Alternate translations can be found through different websites like Google Translate, however it’s clear that Valve are enacting some change to stick to the brand new loot field rules.
You can see the change in impact if you happen to at the moment examine the US and Chinese Dota 2 shops. In the Treasures part for the US store, the entire earlier Treasures are viewable whereas on the Chinese store, solely the 2017 Asia Championship Treasure is accessible for buy. We’re undecided why the DAC 2017 remains to be being offered in China, however the lack of some other Treasures checks out with Valve’s current assertion.
As these modifications are nonetheless being put in place for Dota 2, it’s truthful to imagine that Valve aren’t planning to promote loot containers for the Chinese model of CS:GO anytime quickly. If Valve does determine to ultimately add loot containers for that model, it might want to submit its odds right away.
It is unclear when Treasures will probably be again on-line, however it would almost certainly be after May 1 as an alternative of earlier than.
