Debate On In-Game Coaching In Esports Fires Up After Alliance Blunder


The debate over the involvement of coaches during an ongoing esports event has created a stir among the community in recent times. This time the issue became a raging topic of discussion when the players of Alliance were seen communicating with their coaches during an ongoing game. The incident took place during the professional Dota 2 game.

In a vlog shared on Alliance’s official YouTube channel, coach Peter ‘ppd’ Dager was heard communicating with the players during the game. Post this incident, many Dota players stepped forward claiming Alliance were cheaters. And the fact that Alliance is ranked at the top for this latest season of the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC), added to the outrage. Ironically, the vlog in context is from the only one series Alliance did not win. 

Every top Dota 2 team has a coach. But the point of concern is whether coaches should be allowed to instruct the players during a game. Dota has officially allowed coaches to interact with players in the drafting stage, where teams pick their heroes, as well as during the breaks. 

Owing to these facts, it’s easy to say Alliance was breaching the rules. However, another thing that caught everyone’s attention is even before the season kick-started of DPC, the organizers had sent an email to the European teams stating that coaches would be permitted to communicate with the teams throughout the game. 

The email sent by the organizers to the teams was clearly missed by most of the teams, which led to the misunderstanding. Additionally, this change in the rules is specific to the European region only. The coaches in South America, South East Asia, North America and China are still restricted from communicating with the players.

After all this controversy, the organizer DreamHack decided to step in and revert the rule of allowing coaches to communicate during the games. The organizer posted an update on the rules of the ongoing Season 15 DPC Western Europe. As per the new rules, coaches will no longer be allowed to interact with the players when the gameplay is in  progress.
