Release TI9 Documentary
Coming into The International 2019, Virtus.Pro was, once again, one of the early favorites to win the tournament. They had a great year in the DPC and while the last Major of the season didn't go their way, the team definitely showed off their high skill cap during the season itself. However, once in Shanghai, VP stumbled yet again. And this time they had a team of filmmakers document their journey.
In the half-hour long documentary we get an unfiltered look at Virtus.Pro and what went on behind the scenes of TI9. We get to see teammates arguing. We get to hear their in-game comms. We get to hear that the team was close to kicking RodjER after the Kuala Lumpur Major. It's as full access as we'll ever get.
The documentary shows off a side we rarely see or hear about. The pressure of the event clearly gets to the team after their upper bracket loss against PSG.LGD. In a long sequence, filmed in the teams practice room, all that pressure is released and the team slowly starts falling apart.
This documentary is even more interesting in retrospect as we already know the outcome. During the post-TI roster shuffle period it has been confirmed that Ramzes and Pasha have departed from the team, with more changes rumored.
