WePlay AniMajor Reddit AMA Session Compilation
WePlay's esports leads answer you questions regarding the AniMajor
Yesterday we announced the second Major of the current DPC: Kyiv, June 2-13th , $500,000 and 2,700 DPC points at stake. Wait, who cares about that when the theme is ANIME?! Well, some of you had questions concerning the event, so just a few hours later, our esports kings rushed to answer your questions on Reddit. Will there be viewers? Where do the teams play? Who are the talents? Will anime Instagram filters be created?
Max "MaxSmak" Bilonogov, Chief Visionary Officer & General Producer accompanied by Anton "WarLocK" Tokarev and Vitaliy "Nexius" Bozhko, Lead Esports Managers, answered all of your questions.
Let's take a look at the best and the most important ones!
- 4K Streams
- LAN Event, Players, Quarantine
WePlay Esports: Players will be isolated until they get negative results for Covid.
- Major Battle Pass?
WePlay Esports: It depends on Valve's decision. We will definitely figure something out!
- Why Anime?
WePlay Esports: Dota 2 and Anime worlds have been connected in the audience’s interests for a long time already. Look at Reddit: there are so many crossovers on how could Dota 2 heroes be represented as anime heroes, or how could teams look in an anime series. These are the topics our audience lives in. Think about the fast SOLD OUT of Team Liquid Naruto merchandise series or the recent Dota 2 anime “Dragon’s Blood” on Netflix. And the most interesting is that the community loves and hates anime simultaneously. The same as the game itself.
Nexius: Would be happy to resolve potential tiebreakers for TI, but so far we don't have the privilege.
WePlay Esports: Major rights belong to Valve company and any sponsor on our broadcast will be approved by them.
- Cute Talents
WePlay Esports: Talents announcement will be out soon. We will definitely post that asap on Reddit and our socials.
