As we can clearly read, the Chinese Dota2 scene was a mess. Players were being poached and the prices just kept going higher and higher than ever.
It was all being detrimental to the teams and the players too as the deadline neared with no possible solution in sight.
All organisations came together and decided to drop all the rosters. This helped them secure more time and also helped them gain leverage over Valve in extending the deadline.
However in order to prevent a repeat, rules and guidelines were set up for future Shuffle periods. We hope this does not repeat as its quite unsportsmanlike that Chinese teams get more time for roster shuffles.
