True Sight is a new documentary series by Valve.
The season series will be a behind the scenes look at professional teams from TI6 as they embark on their quest for victory at the Boston Major in December. The aim is to give fans an inside look at the dynamics and process of a professional team from post TI to Dota 2 Major champions.
In the aftermath of The International, each player and team must face the difficult challenge of committing to a tournament roster for the next season’s push towards competitive glory, all searching for the elusive combination of talent and chemistry that can carry a group of five individuals to the pinnacle of professional Dota—to stand as the winning team at a Dota 2 Major Championship.
This season, lift the fog on the process of building a top-tier Dota team with True Sight, a new documentary series that takes you behind the scenes of the journeys of professional teams. Episode one features EG and Fnatic as they rebuild their rosters with all eyes focused on claiming victory at The Boston Major in December.
The first season will feature EG and Fnatic – both teams have rebuilt their rosters and are already training hard. No other teams or details of what to expect from future episodes has been revealed.
The first episode will be streamed at 4:00 PM PDT Thursday, October 13/ 01:00 CEST Friday, October 14. It will be repeated every two hours on the hour for a full 24 hour cycle.
Access to the stream is limited to owners of the Fall 2016 Battle Pass – available for purchase HERE for $7.99.
Viewers will be able to join in live chat during the first 24 hour broadcast and stream will be available in English, English subtitles, Russian subtitles, and Chinese subtitles.
Once the first 24 hours is complete, the episode will be available in the Steam Library for Battle Pass owners.
The long time captain Peter “PPD” Dager transitioned out of the team into a business management position with the brand.
Andreas Franck “Cr1t-” Nielsen stepped into the rather large shoes left open with PPD’s departure. Hailing from one of the most successful teams of the 2015 -2016 year, OG – Cr1t- was part of history as the only team to claim two Valve sponsored championship titles – Frankfurt Major and Manila Major.
For the third time, Artour “Arteezy” Babaev dons the blue jersey for the organization. The famed Canadian player has had an on and off again relationship between Team Secret and Evil Geniuses since 2014.
Saahil “UNiVeRsE” Arora, Syed Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan and Ludwig “zai” Wåhlberg have remained with the team.
Evil Geniuses were close to getting their names written on the Aegis of Champions for the second time. Not close enough, though: they fell to Digital Chaos in the Lower Bracket Finals and placed third overall.
Evil Geniuses have already secured their first title of the season – taking the MDL 2016 title and trophy when they overthrew the TI4 champions, Newbee, 3:1 in the grand finals.
New Evil Geniuses roster:
Artour “Arteezy” Babaev

The new Fnatic roster was finalized for the upcoming Fall Major season with the additions of Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho, Nico “eyyou” Barcelon and Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto.
The three known players joined core members of Fnatic Chai “Mushi” Yee Fung and Chong Xin “Ohaiyo” Khoo – both of whom have been playing on the team since June 2015.
Zheng “Miduan” Yeik Nai and Adam Erwann Shah “343” bin Akhtar Hussein had officially parted ways with Fnatic, following the departure of Djardel Jicko B. “DJ” Mampusti at the end of August – leaving the team with just two.
Fnatic took fourth place at TI6 after a spectacular run and showcase of talent.
