|Group A||Group B|
|Group C||Group D|
Teams EHOME, Ice and Zenith went undefeated in the group stages - a fine achievement for sure but the kids are back in there cots and etheletes have risen to claim victory. Hopefully we get to see some clash of the titans action for when these teams meet up in these final series.
The playoff week in the winner’s bracket will be an old fashioned Asian sensation showdown with 4 teams from China and 2 teams each from Malaysia and Singapore.
All the action will not be restricted to the Winner's bracket though. The Loser's brackets do contain recent International invitees Absolute Legends, DK eSports club and Invictus Gaming and they will be sure to stir the pot and perhaps claw their way to the final.
At this stage, 7 out of the current 12 teams that are invited to The International later this year are to be a part of the GIGABYTE Masters playoffs. hopefully the playoffs will consist of the highest degree of skill, dedication and discipline to show the world once again why they are top contenders in the electronic sport that is Dota 2.
Whichever way this competition goes it can be only good for the gamers and the spectators with such a talented pool you could not expect any less. Good luck to all the participants.
The Finals brackets go as followed:
