Many will fight. Few will achieve Immortality.

I've been always both frustrated and fascinated by DOTA 2. There are times when I flame, rage, laugh, cry (not really), and be shocked about the gameplay, patches, metagame, bugs, and balance and garbage (pls mr lizard) fixes. Still, I am amazed at how it turned out to be!

Back when DOTA 2 has started, it was beneath the shadows of a larger behemoth that is the League of Legends (LoL ) waaay back. Since LoL was very predominant than DOTA 2, there are few players back then. I was somewhat part of the early Alpha Release and mostly Closed Beta, and it was mostly ridden with bugs, but it was fixed as long as many people complained of it. Still, DOTA 2 was like a toddler back then, with tournaments giving prizes worth just hundreds of bucks, with some reaching thousands of dollars.

Some, like me, felt like DOTA 2 will never prosper, because LoL was in full flight back then. Generally, computers can play LoL because it uses less resources, whereas DOTA 2 requires you to have a more powerful PC than those regular office desktops, which is commonplace to where I live.

Much like the tournaments in LoL and the Majors in CS:GO, DOTA 2 has tournaments of its own, however it's still small compared to the former games, respectively. But it was a start, that a new competitive scene is blooming, albeit a small one.

But then, The International happened. Then it changed.

Now, DOTA 2 boasts the biggest prizepool ever in eSports. The fact that most of the prizepool has been crowdfunded by the staunch DOTA 2 Community gives the fact that people are really supportive of the DOTA 2 Competitive scene.

With the Majors on the rise along with The International, DOTA 2 will become bigger than ever before.

But before that, one must look at the professional players. Some are enthusiasts who wanted to show the world that they are the bestest DOTA 2 Professional team. Others wanted to earn popularity make statuses of themselves. Few wanted the prize money to make a living. But they didn't came and participated just for the money, but they came to achieve what is at stake: the Aegis of Immortality. It is in the Aegis of Immortality that their name will be engraved for all eternity, as long as DOTA 2 is still alive. It is the proof that they struggled through thick and thin, just to be at the top.

Blood (though not really), sweat, money, and tears are shed and wasted just to participate in one of the biggest tournament ever to happen on DOTA 2, rather, to the eSports Scene.

Teams will fight to the bitter end, and one team will emerge victorious. That's how you fight in The International.

The Dota 2 Player Profiles are set up in a way similar to the Counter Strike player profiles. You have a player or two in each profile, first they go over a little how they got started with Dota, then we get some kind words from family or friends, after words they usually talk about there competitive play and where they stand in the current international, or something similar then the profile finishes of with what kind of hopes they may have for the future. This is not exactly what happens each profile is a little different but I feel this is the best way to describe it.

Each profile acts as a small overview of a player, all the profiles are around 2-3 minutes long and there are a total of 16 videos, including the titular advertisement video. Overall I would recommend this type of thing only to fans of esports, or "pro-Dota" in general. I feel the audience for these videos is pretty niche, if you can even call Dota esport fans niche anymore.
