Dota 2 Cristy “Pandoradota2” Ramadani

Dota Valkyries and Into the Breach have partnered up for a co-ed charity tournament to support Safe in Our World. 

Into Valhalla is a co-ed Dota 2 charity tournament supporting Safe In Our World, designed to provide a safe competitive space for women and non-binary players.

This event is yet another in a string of positive and progressive initiatives from Dota Valkyries to create change and promote healthy gaming for all. 

The main goal of Safe In Our World is to create and foster worldwide mental health awareness within the video game industry; to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health, to make it a natural topic of discussion, and to promote the dialogue surrounding mental health so people are not afraid to reach out for help if they need it.

DotaValkyries is a project and initiative that aims to support women in casual Dota 2 as well as in the pursuit of a professional career. 

They launched one year ago and since then has made not just a footprint but a deep impression for women within the Dota 2 scene. 

The organization has supported women across all aspects of industry work from background and support functions to competing in online and LAN events and to showcasing their talent in broadcasting and coaching.
