WePlay Esports on the rules and restrictions for community broadcasts.
On August 29, our team was happy to share the news that WePlay Esports would be the official broadcasting studio of The International 2022 Regional Qualifiers in Ukrainian. This project is incredibly important for us, and we are working non-stop to ensure that the Ukrainian-speaking community is satisfied and that everyone who wants to watch this celebration of Dota 2 in their native language can do it.
However, since the news came out, there have been questions about the qualifiers’ community broadcasts, so we’d like to help clarify a number of points.
On August 29, PGL, as the official organizer of The International 2022 Regional Qualifiers, published the guidelines for the community broadcasts of the qualifiers in advance. One of the main provisions is a prohibition for studios that have not obtained broadcasting rights — and their respective employees — to hold community broadcasts. Such broadcasts are considered to be commercial and will be blocked. You can check out all the original rules at this link.
This and other provisions apply not only to Ukrainian-language broadcasts but also to streams in other languages — without any exceptions. PGL, as the tournament organizer, operates within the framework of its established regulations, which we respect and follow.
Previously, WePlay Esports suggested that talents from other studios join the cast for our stream, but they did not accept the offer. If they change their minds, we are open to communication.
Thank you for your understanding,
WePlay Esports Team.
