Reasons you should watch DPC China

Hey everyone, with the DPC Leagues about to kick off, I wanted to share what I've been up to specifically regarding the China regional league. Wall of text and pictures incoming — kind of like old days, where I talk about what's going on in China. Except nowadays I get to work on it directly, so that's cool.

In the works for over 6 months, DPC China 2021 presented by Perfect World Esports is set to kick off on January 18 with its first matches. I’ve been working on this from its very conception and I’m pretty excited to finally see it nearing fruition. With the team here at Perfect World Esports, we’ve put together a content, design, and competitive framework to sustain the DPC China League at a Major-level production (that's the goal, anyway), alongside brand new ideations to support this brand new format that the DPC is taking on this year.

We’ve taken extra care to ensure match integrity and have separate dedicated processes for all offline and online matches. Some of our other focuses have revolved around content, community, and visuals, with the theming for this entire year being custom-built from the ground up.

Here is a quick summary of some cool things that we are going to feature for DPC China 2021 and why you should tune in.
