TI10 has been announced. The DPC 2021 Season 2 is getting geared up for the last week of league play. Teams are already starting to claim their spots for the second (and last) Major of the year. Things are moving at lightning speed in the Dota 2 world and it's electrifying.
Now the details for the Major have been announced.
All 18 teams that have qualified will be onsite. There will not be any spectators onsite however.
We know from a previous deep dive into the organization with Maksym Bilonogov WePlay Esports General Producer, that their real passion and expertise is in production value and creating stories. WePlay Bukovel Minor brought magic and fairytales to life and was the most viewed Minor. Then for WePlay Mad Moon, fans were transported to a cyberpunk world and futuristic city.
There is little doubt that WePlay Esports will continue to create events of the highest caliber bringing the production value to the next level making fans eager to tune in.
