Valve Producing Dota 2 Documentary

Ever wondered what it’s really like to be a professional gamer? Soon, you’ll be able to find out how it feels to compete on one of the biggest stages in the history of gaming, Valve’s The International Dota 2 Championships.

Valve is creating a documentary that follows the lives of several professional Dota 2 players and tells their stories leading up to The International. The documentary focuses on more than just Dota 2, however–it aims to highlight the lives of professional gamers and their families, along with the sacrifices necessary to make a career out of something you and I do for fun.

The trailer above is just a short taste of the film, but it already runs the gamut of emotions in just a couple of minutes. I can’t wait to watch the full-length film!

    Hopefully Valve can bring this type of encouragement to CS:GO to make it a competetive game.. As it is now.. It’s not :/

    I’m waiting on Infinity Ward’s documentary about the trials and tribulations of Team OpTic. I would really like to see how one balances their dedications to a family, and to a team that is competing in the worlds most popular competitive FPS, MW3. The idea that being GB Legit has a real life cost often intrigues me.

    I am actually most interested in the story of how the Koreans started with StarCraft and how they built up a career doing so. Doesn’t matter who just someone who started early and can tell a good story about it. I hope they pick single individuals to follow through, like 5-6 people and make it a personal experience. Aswell as the event. This is the shit that always makes me wish I played more competetive games, not on their level but on a certain level.

    This looks pretty sweet.
