True Sight always brings a new batch of memes to the Dota 2 community and the documentary for The International 10 is no exception.

After weeks of anticipation, Valve has finally released its behind-the-scenes documentary for the grand final of The International 10. Fans can finally learn how both teams reacted to Team Spirit’s shock victory and PSG.LGD’s heartbreaking loss.

True Sight’s intimacy also revealed several funny moments from the $23.4 million match. Here are all the juicy new memes from TI10 True Sight explained.

True Sight turned “go wash your face” into a Dota 2 meme

Of all the new memes from TI10 True Sight, “go wash your face” is probably the most popular. The phrase was used by PSG.LGD coach Zhang “xiao8” Ning, directed towards soft support Zhao “XinQ” Zixing after game one of the best-of-five. The Director noticed XinQ yawning during the draft, and was likely signaling him to become more energetic. XinQ read the subtext like a book and offered an argument, resulting in a humorous exchange. 

After this funny scene, Dota 2 players have begun telling each other to go wash their faces during matches. It’s just bad manners with no particular meaning, but there’s bonus points for directing it at position four players.

Teammates going 3 Linken’s Spheres? Here’s why

Magomed “Collapse” Khalilov’s Magnus was the star of this series, but fans are quick to forget Spirit’s failures in game three. After repeatedly getting his initiations stuffed by XinQ’s Rubick, Collapse attempted to convince his team to buy three Linken’s Spheres to protect him. The topic of purchasing multiple Linken’s Spheres was brought up again after game four in the documentary. It practically became a running gag.

While the unorthodox strategy isn’t seeing much use in pubs, some Dota 2 fans are referencing 3 Linken’s Spheres in-game as a reference to poor item builds. Since blocking spells is a mission for week four of the battle pass, perhaps more players should heed the TI winner’s advice.

PSG.LGD’s team chant has inspired Dota 2 memes

After a disheartening stomp in game two, PSG.LGD’s players are shown gathering together for a group chant. They huddle up close and shout the equivalent of “Let’s go!” before going onstage. This is nothing unusual, but Team Spirit’s captain Yaroslav “Miposhka” Naidenov had his own response to it. After LGD did its team chant between the third and fourth game, he let out a blood-curdling scream in response.

While this sound is impossible to convey through gameplay, it’s very likely that it will wind up as an in-game voice line sometime in the future. It could easily be used to make fun of talkative enemies or as a response to coordinated chat messages.
