Victoria Guo, Tournament Manager:
"WePlay! Esports is a well-known esports institution that organized many large-scale events all over the world. We are very honored to have the opportunity to cooperate with WePlay! Esports as a live broadcasting partner in China. We were all shocked by the global Coronavirus situation, and we realized that it's time for our esport fellows to do something for it. We are willing to introduce this tournament to the Chinese audience and give them a chance to make their contributions voluntary. WeSave! Charity Play is a cornerstone of our cooperation. We believe that this event will be a success and will be the beginning of our long-term future collaboration."
Canberk Atasev, Caster:
"I support WeSave! Charity Play because I always enjoy becoming a part of WePlay! Esports events. You are so relevant in your events. You impressed the Turkish community one more time in this tournament and it is so exciting to be a part of this family. Also your last Minor tournament was so good."
Jan Holtmann, Founder of shokzTV:
"WeSave! Charity Play is the perfect opportunity to fill the Dota 2 tournament gap while doing something good. It is about the community - it is about showing strength and support. We are all in this together! The german Dota 2 community is proud to be a part of it. Let's fight COVID-19 together! Thank you very much, WePlay! and thanks to all contributors!"
Henrique Sizenando, CEO:
"In addition to being an initiative that helps financially an institution that is working to combat the virus, it is also an excellent opportunity to draw people's attention to the importance of staying at home and how much it will really make a difference in containing the virus. Besides, that is excellent content to help people get distracted in quarantine."
Andrii Yatsiuk, caster
“We are delighted with how fast WePlay! Esports can react to a situation, come up with an idea, rally people around it and then realize it. They can show that esports, and in particular Dota 2 and its community, are not only entertainment and business. These are people who are willing to selflessly help in difficult times, in a specific situation, to contribute to the fight against COVID-19. This is cool, we are happy to be a small part of this event! Well and, of course, the super-top Dota and the best teams of the world are waiting for us! WePlay! will not let us get depressed during quarantine! Stay home, watch WeSave! Charity Play, play Dota 2, take care of your health and, thus, contribute to overcoming the pandemic!"
