WeSave! Charity Play is a 24-team Dota 2 tournament set up to combat the spread of COVID-19, the esports way. It will feature four teams from each of the six regions, with $20,000 per region. That means there’s a combined pool of $120,000. Then, donations from sponsors and viewers, as well as the $120,000 mention above, will be used to fight the Coronavirus.
WePlay! Esports managing partner and CEO, Oleg Krot, explains that:
“The preparation process for WePlay! Charity Play is unusual even for our team. We have many people working from homes and across various time zones. Still, we try to achieve as much as possible through text chats and conference calls.
These are also the primary means of communication with the talents and teams, as well as sponsors and partners, who have been eager to support our initiative to host a charity marathon. The desire to help others is universal, and we are inspired by the amount of caring and selfless people inside the esports community.”
