After delivering fans the enjoyable Dota anime series Dragon’s Blood, the Valve x Netflix partnership continues with yet another cinematic treat.

Valve’s new documentary “Free-to-Play” showcases the story of the very first The International (TI) tournament back in 2011, following the journey of Dota 2 legends Benedict “hyhy” Lim, Clinton “Fear” Loomis, and Danil “Dendi” Ishutin.

The documentary also dives into the early days of esports, way back before Dota 2 became a multi-million dollar tourney.
