The Z Event 2020 threatened after the cancellation of several videographers?

From October 16 to 18, 2020, the fifth edition of the Z-Event will take place, the charity marathon where many streamers around ZeratoR will come together. However, a few days before the festivities begin, the event is under serious threat after several invited videographers were canceled.

Multiple cancellations

In five editions (if we count the “Avengers Project” from 2016), the Z-Event has become one of the most important events in French streaming. The principle organized by ZeratoR and Dach is simple: A three-day marathon in which many well-known streamers come together to raise money for a charity. During the first edition of the Z-Event, € 170,770 was collected for the Save the Children association. In 2019, Z Event broke the world record for charity flows on Twitch and raised the extraordinary sum of € 3,509,878 for the Pasteur Institute. These numbers give us a glimpse of the importance of the event …

The Z Event 2020 is scheduled for October 16-18, 2020, but it is highly threatened due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Several videographers invited to the event announced on their social networks that, given the health situation, they will not participate in the fifth edition of the charity marathon.

Well I have 0 symptoms but I tested positive for Covid …
I’m not going to attend Zevent this year, I’m very sorry. 🙁

I tell you that, as a precaution, I will unfortunately not attend this event. My entourage includes people at risk and the situation in Paris is deteriorating significantly.

I am not feeling well, so I prefer to play it safe, good luck to the friends of Zevent ud83d udcaa

In view of the development of the health situation, I reluctantly decide to cancel my participation in ZEvent.
Since I have an endangered entourage, I prefer to do without my relatives and myself

I’m sure this year’s participants will tear everything to pieces ud83d udcaa ud83d udd25

The organizers are reassuring!

From October 13, some videographers, such as the Joueur du Grenier or Sardoche, insisted on ensuring their presence at the Z Event 2020 in view of the announcements of the cancellation.

I am not canceling my visit to Zevent, but then again, I warn you that we will be bored on my stream.

Hello! IF you grew up anywhere between 1990 and 2010 this is for you! I’m organizing a big quiz at ZEVENT on Sunday at 1 p.m.! TV series, video games and cartoons with 4 teams of streamers!

There will be questions, but also audio and video clips! pic.twitter.com/km5LqNXHA4

CoVid negative, I really thought karma was catching up with me.

I will therefore take part in the Z event!

We’ll be reflecting on the schedule and events on the stream this afternoon: D.

October 14, 2020

I have to be 4000% for this Z event. The responsibility is enormous.

I’m the only one who can allow people from the right to donate to this association on the left.

I will be up to the task no matter what.

You will understand that the event will continue (at least for the moment) despite the extremely difficult health situation. In April 2020, ZenatoR addressed the possibility of canceling the Z-Event 2020. In a live on April 29, 2020, he confessed that he didn’t know if he really wanted to keep the event because of the fear-inducing “atmosphere” and organizational complications resulting from health restrictions. The event was officially announced on October 4, 2020.

We are back !

# ZEVENT2020 in aid of Amnesty International will take place from October 16-18.

Time is complicated but be sure to have a crazy weekend! pic.twitter.com/OG1BGuN5ZF

ZeratoR announced on Twitter that there would be no replacement for the videographers who canceled their participation in the Z Event 2020.

Even if there are disclaimers / cancellations for streamers for # ZEVENT2020, there is no substitute. There are too many implications and limitations to replacing people on D-3, and let’s see the good side, it makes up a little more space on the same day ud83d udc4d!

The videographers seem to be working hard to make the event happen. Unfortunately, it seems implausible that the Z-Event 2020 will surpass the record of 2019. The economic downturn, the aftermath of the health crisis and the March 2020 containment, as well as videographers’ rejection of the critical community (like Squeezie) may result in reduced donations to Amnesty International. Regardless, we are grateful that ZeratoR and the videographers invited to attend the event are doing their best to ensure that the fifth edition of the Z-Event takes place.
