Now more than ever, we are making connections with friends online across the world, thanks to games like Dota 2. From mentors and friends to teammates and rivals, the esports community is a vast network of people separated by borders but united by a mutual love of gaming.
As the Official Logistics Partner of ESL, DHL wanted to bring together gamers from around the world by delivering one lucky winner and their online friend to a future Dota 2 tournament, to feel the magic of ESL One in real life. Entries were asked to write up to 500 words on why they and their friend should be chosen to win 2 VIP weekend tickets.
See a selection of the heartwarming entries below, showcasing friendships brought together by a passion for Dota 2.
