In an attempt to create content around The International 2018, Valve has roped in SirActionSlacks to create a series of videos. These videos will provide an insight into various matches, teams and players involved in TI8. SirActionSlacks is a well-known community figure in Dota 2 and has created a lot of content around Dota2, including the Loregasm series. TI8 will be held in Vancouver this year as the KeyArena is under renovation for the time being.
One week remains until the first battle horns will sound to kick off Group Stage play at The International, and final preparations are well underway.
As the eighteen teams complete their journeys into Vancouver, now is an opportune time to take a look back upon the vastly different roads each has traveled through the Dota Pro Circuit season to arrive at the tournament.
Today, with the help of one SirActionSlacks, we’ll recap all the DPC moments that determined the final standings for the eight direct invites in the new Dota Pro Circuit Rewind.
Starting tomorrow, SirActionSlacks will return each day leading up to the Group Stage to help you catch up on everything you need to know about all eighteen teams and their rosters in his week-long series, The International Lowdown.
Tune in daily August 9 – 14 at 10:00 AM PDT on our Youtube or Twitch channels for a new episode. The International Lowdown will feature three teams each day, and viewers on Twitch will also see select classic matches from the archives of The International.
