”Back to School”: Epic Esports Events and RuHub talked about the theme of DPC tournaments in Eastern Europe

Tournament operator Epic Esports Events and RuHub Studio shared an idea that formed the basis for the studio space design and will manifest itself in all activities during DPC 2021/2022 in Eastern Europe.

Mark Averbuch, Product Director at Epic Esports Events:

“As you might have guessed from the RuHub Studio teaser, we have based the storyline on the theme of growing up, becoming, and learning. It will connect all three seasons of the DPC with a single line, and you will be able to observe with your own eyes how the tournament will develop and “grow up” from match to match, just as the intensity of passions increases from the group stages to the grand final.”

Nikolay Petrossian, Head of RuHub Studio:

“In the first tournament of the season, the studio familiar to viewers will turn into an apartment of the 90s. Imagine that behind the scenes of the tournament is a hero, a future graduate of the school, who has a whole life ahead of him (and Dota 2, of course). His story will inspire us during the broadcast, and its elements will be reflected in thematic content and special activities for viewers. I won’t reveal all the details, I’ll see you on the broadcast! And remember: every stage of life — like every season of DPC — is interesting in its own way.”
