It’s a long road to the International, Dota 2’s world championship series, and nobody knows that more than this year’s winners, Team OG. A documentary about their path to International greatness premiers next month in Copenhagen, and you’ll be able buy tickets if you’d like to attend.
True Sight – The International 2018 tells the behind-the-scenes story of the two top contenders in this year’s International, OG and PSG.LGD. In the final match-up, OG staged a come-from-behind underdog victory that culminated in a thrilling Game 5 win, and this year’s True Sight documentary provides the backstory for OG’s odds-defying trip to the top.
It’s hard not to get hyped up watching the trailer, even if you’re not into Dota 2.
“We haven’t achieved anything yet – they’re going to fight to the end, they’re not going to give us anything,” OG’s Sébastien ‘7ckngMad’ Debs tells his teammates as the trailer begins. “They don’t give a shit, these guys are fucking warriors.”
The film has Valve’s production muscle behind it, and it includes some nice ‘on-the-ground’ footage from the Dota 2 playing field.
Here’s the trailer:
If you’re interested in attending the premier, you can buy tickets starting December 25 – it’s going to be held at the Nordisk Film Cinema Palads in Copenhagen, Denmark January 15, at 20:00 CEST, and the event includes a live Q&A session with OG, hosted by Kaci Aitchison and Ted ‘PyrionFlax’ Forsyth.
If you can’t make it to Copenhagen, though, you’ll be able to tune in via stream. Details on how to do that will be made available soon on the Dota 2 blog.
