10/10 would see again!
10 February 2015 | by lucasemanuel-93See all my reviews

One of the best (if not the best) documentaries about "Dota 2". You have to see this if you love eSports, here you can see and feel a little of the big community of dota 2. As a player of this great game (almost nine years since I began with this MOBA) I feel very proud of the outcome of dota 2... I remember all the big problems that dota 1 had because of the limits set by WC3's platform... like the disconnects, if you didn't save your game before the DC, then you would probably fuc***, because there wasn't any reconnect system! And the server issues, it was too hard if you wanted to play on any international tournament. You'd probably have too lag and delay... And the most annoying problem (from my perspective) was the permanent abuse of external programs (like maphack)... It was a hard game to play back then... but now it's different, Valve made an excellent job with the game, but the main reason of this big evolution it was the community! Valve would not have invested this much if they had not had a positive response from the community. I believe that eSports will grow as much as the expectations of the community.
