Speaking on the amazing work of the global esports community, the COO said a problem in any part of the world is a problem of all.

He added that this made the firm to take the bold step as part of its social responsibility to the entire world.

Speaking in the wake of the deadly virus that has left over 1,500 people dead, Hur allayed fears of their fans saying all Dynasty’s players, office staff, and families are in good condition and have not been infected with the virus.

The coronavirus which is believed to have emanated from Wuhan has been a talking point for over a month, and the esports industry and the Overwatch League is not exempted.

The virus has forced the league to cancel five homestands that were scheduled for China this month and March. The decision was reached to protect the well-being and safety of their players, fans, and staff.

Coronavirus has led to the cancellation of 27 games, which have now been rescheduled for a studio in Seoul in mid-March.

The virus has also forced the Guangzhou Charge and the Shanghai Dragons, to move their training bases to South Korea for the health and safety of their players and staff.
