Ukrainian esports company Maincast has partnered with Epulze to bring the broadcast of the upcoming Lima Major 2023 in Dota 2 to a Ukrainian-speaking audience.
The two companies will work together on a Ukrainian-language broadcast on the Maincast Twitch channel.
The Lima Major will be the first-ever official Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) event in South America and will take place in Lima, Peru, in February and March 2023. The event will be produced by Epulze and production company 4D Esports, and will be the first Major tournament in 2023 for Dota 2.
Maincast is a prominent esports production company from Kiev, Ukraine. The company has worked with the likes of ESL Gaming in the past to bring localised translations and productions of large-scale esports events, including the ESL Pro Tour, the Dota 2 Kuala Lumpur Major and others. Maincast, similar to other Ukraine-based companies, is producing events and content despite the war with Russia in its home country.
Andrii Grigoriev, CEO and Co-founder of Maincast: “We are delighted to be partnering with Epulze and have the opportunity to broadcast tournaments in Ukrainian for our community. We can promote Ukrainian-language content and increase public interest thanks to our partners. Every year, we try to raise the bar of our broadcasts and content no matter what.”
Co-founder of Epulze Pontus Lövgren added that his company is looking forward to bringing a localised broadcast to Ukraine. Dota 2 is historically one of the most popular games in the region, and there are many professional teams that hail from Ukraine, Russia and other CIS countries.
