Valve released its first documentary film, Free To Play, in the late 2014 as part of their campaign in promoting Dota 2 across the globe. The documentary film featured prominent players: Dendi, hyhy and Fear, which are still currently active in the pro-scene.
The film highlighted the struggles behind the Dota 2 scene which are fairly common for all aspiring players. Factors like family, money and time are essentially focused during the course of the film. After its successful run and massive boost of the Dota 2 community, it didn't come to a shock that Valve has made yet another documentary film for one of its franchise.

The next team to be featured is the 2015 International Champion, Evil Geniuses; which also had undergone through a series of reshuffles and roster changes.
