'The International 7' brings back old-school map after viewer complaints
The International 7 viewers are not enchanted with this year’s “under the sea” theme. The tournament’s special map, Reef’s Edge, is apparently harder to read than the original, Kotaku reports. Fish, land mines, and shipwrecks sometimes obstruct the camera, and some floor effects like Broodmother’s webs are harder to see. Thousands of irate DOTA 2 fans and Twitch viewers took to Reddit during group stages yesterday to voice their displeasure. Valve responded quickly to the complaints. Today, Russian DOTA 2 player and observer CaptainSashko tweeted that the stream will use the vanilla map. If you want to watch The International 7, you can find the main Twitch stream here.
