Tournament operator Perfect World, hosting the DPC league for China, made an official statement about the unresolvable bug in the match EHOME vs Aster.Aries.

In the EHOME vs Aster.Aries series on June 28 in DPC CN Tour 3, an unresolvable lobby bug occurred in game 2 with EHOME leading the overall series score at 1-0. In the interest of fairness and integrity, and in agreement with both teams, the decision is as follows:

1) Put this series on pause at the current score of 1-0,

2) Report the bug and all related detail to Valve,

3) Work with Valve to determine next steps, with the series to be resumed at a later date, to be announced.

On the second map (with a score of 7:2), all the participants of the match were eliminated from the game due to server malfunctions. When they returned to the map, EHOME had a slot for a 6th player. After a long pause, the participants tried to resume the game, but almost immediately returned the pause.

The teams refused to replay the second map from scratch.
