Have you watched True Sight 2018 yet?
If you haven't yet, we're highly recommending it!
True Sight is more than just a documentary.
The annual documentary series by Valve tells more than just the behind-the-scenes of the DOTA 2 championship tournament – it presents a tale, where all of us gamers can pick up a lesson or two.
Mogul has compiled inspirational and funny quotes and conversations from the recently-released True Sight - TI8 documentary video.
"Dota is a sick mental game. It brings out the best and the worst in you. It comes down to half a second where you just can't predict what's gonna happen. You try to look at everything as pieces and pawns. You try to look at it as simply the game. Who ended up winning the mental warfare always won the series, that's how you're gonna win tournaments, that's how you win the tournament. If you break the other mind it gets really easy. Some minds are really hard to beat though." -N0tail
"When you go into these best of five grand finals you know there's multiple, you have multiple attempts at trying something so if you have this crazy strategy or this really strange idea..." -Troels Lyngholt "syndereN" Nielsen
