LOS BAÑOS--There's no stopping Galaxy Battles 2 from happening.

Even if it's not anymore a Major.

Fallout Gaming said that the week-long DOTA 2 tournament from Jan. 15-21 at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue will still push through despite Valve pulling out the major tournament status on it.

"Rest assured, the event will go on as scheduled," Fallout said in a statement on Saturday night via Galaxy Battles' Facebook page.

The organization continued its statement by reiterating its support on GAB's call for a drug testing among the participants, which triggered Valve's decision to drop Galaxy Battles 2 from the Majors list.
