WePlay AniMajor preview guide

Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

WePlay AniMajor is finally upon us and we've compiled all of the information needed to watch and follow all of the action. 

WePlay has been bestowed the honor of hosting the second (and last) Major of the DPC 2021 Season. The results from this event will determine the remaining eight TI slots and shape the lineups for the TI10 regional qualifiers. 

There is a LOT on the line to say the least and these matches are expected to be some of the most intense action we have seen in a long time. 

Although there are still no spectators on-site, which definitely has an impact on performance and experience, there is little doubt that WePlay will deliver a riveting event for all involved. 

We've compiled all of the information into one area to maximize the viewing pleasure and make sure fans have the most updated information. 

To kick things off on June 2 at 13:00 CEST, Team Secret will take on AS Monaco Gambit while Team Nigma will lock horns with ViCi Gaming

The rest of the information is below!
