Two Dota 2 major tournaments may have been cancelled, but that hasn’t dampened the spirit of the community. In the spirit of competition and cooperation, 24 of the world’s best Dota 2 teams have agreed to take part in the WeSave! Charity Play. This online charity tournament hopes to help in the fight against the Coronavirus. Most of the matches begin today, March 20, and end on March 26, depending on what region you're in.

Today we give you a rundown of the event and where to watch the matches.


The format is pretty simple. Four teams fight in each of the six regions. While there is a $120,000 prize pool, it’s going to be spread evenly across the regions and donated to charity. What’s going to make the games exciting is that Dota 2 recently released update 7.25 so we get to see just how these changes are going to affect the meta.


The matches are going to take place on different dates but they’ll be spread out over the course of one week. Here are the schedules (all times are in EDT):

Where to Watch

This being a tournament that has a strong community support, there are many ways to watch. The most obvious would be the Dota 2 client through Steam. However, as of this writing, that option doesn’t appear to be available. Not to worry though as there are a lot of other choices.

For one there is Twitch, typically the go-to channel when it comes to gaming, and this time it’s not different. Here are the channels you can go to:

There's also HUYA, which is a Chinese broadcasting company, so expect the same language. If that's okay with you, these are your options:

The eGG Network is also a good option especially if you want to watch on your TV. You can access their site here.

That said, let's not forget about Facebook. You read that right. These are the Facebook channels where you can watch the WeSave! Charity Play matches:
