WePlay Animajor: Who Has Arrived at the Tournament, so Far
With only two days to the WePlay AniMajor, teams and talent have arrived in Kyiv from all around the world for the last Major before TI10. Only four teams are comfortably qualified for TI, and everyone else’s hopes lie in the AniMajor. Player and talent arrivals have always proven to have issues even before the pandemic with VISA problems and it has only gotten more problematic after Covid. The last Major of the DPC season certainly saw its fair share of problems with player arrivals and we can only hope for smoother progress this time around. With that said, here is a look at the teams and talent that have arrived at Kyiv for the WePlay AniMajor.
