i heard on tobis stream said the group stages will happen before the 31st august and tobi will be casting this from the joindota studio in germany, so that means there will be atleast a few days gap between the group stages and the elimation brackets for casters like tobi to arrive in seattle.

and the double elimination brackets will be happening from the 31st august at the Benaroya Hall..

so does anyone know the date the international group stage games start?
Im guessing most teams will arrive in seattle around the 26th?

So the International 2 begins on 27 and not on 31 like Dota 2's official site announced like two months ago ?

if im not mistaken someone from valve mentioned in an interview that they will do the group stages in the valve head quater withou many press etc around, mb to give the players some time to get used to the changes.

the "real" tournament will start on aug 31th, i guess in the group stages no team will already pass out of the tournament, mb its for seeding so navi wont face ehome in round 1

double elimination bracket is just usefull iwth 8/16 teams around and i highly doubt they will kick out half the team before the show even started

i agree with #7.

my guess:
4 seeds (u wont see them first day)
8 teams with low stats in somekinda elimation bracket:BO1 and losers out (4games)


so day1:
4 teams out from loser bracket (4games)

day2
8 teams out

day3
semi final and grand final
-----------------------------------
or
4 teams gone before aug31, which is still very sad

I'm pretty sure I've read that they will play two groups of 8 in each where 4 from each will get to the upper bracket and 4 to the lower bracket. Then they'll probably do:
A1 - B4
A3 - B2
A2 - B3
A4 - B1
in the upper bracket and so on..
So the groups are played instead of Valve giving away the seeds :) :)
