WePlay! Pushka League Season 2 Announcement! ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

What could be cooler than the release of a new Battle Pass with a nostalgic Wraith King Arcana and a plush Pudge? Only the announcement of WePlay! Pushka League Season 2!

The new regional Dota 2 league gathered more than 750 thousand viewers on broadcasts (exactly 775,225 people), generated more than 11 million hours of viewing and, considering severe lack of entertainment, showed battles between the best teams of CIS and EU regions: Team Liquid, OG, Team Secret, Virtus.pro, B8 Esports, and many more great teams!

You can see some statporn over here if you like. But only after you remember how cool the first season of WePlay! Pushka League was!

We even proved that Kyle is not always wrong.

But back let’s get back to business. The next stage of WePlay!’s regional league will see a brand new format. Still, it is a bit complex: a couple of divisions, links between them, no tiebreakers and the places will decide the team’s progression… It may sound scary, but our Esports Department made a hell of a scheme to make sure that the teams will be motivated in every match so you will enjoy every map of the tournament. There will be a separate article dedicated to all the nuances. In the meantime, let's go through the main points of WePlay! Pushka League Season 2.
