Groups of The International 6 announced

Dota 2 Andreea “divushka” Esanu

Day zero at The International 6 started with an all teams and players meeting with Valve’s staff at the end of which the group stage draws have been shared via social media.

The sixteen teams will be spread into two groups of eight teams, and the top four from each group will be seeded in the upper bracket of the Main Event while the rest will start from the lower bracket. Keep in mind that this year’s international main event format features the same double elimination format with the first round of lower bracket as best of one games.

  • Number 1 "clariska" of Number 99 ,
    Every event pits TS vs weaker teams.Ike they have to have a free pass?Can't they just earn it like everyone else?They should've swapped EG/Navi or OG with Fnatic or DC.
    • Shubham "akidos_" Bharadwaj ,
      They are crowd pullers .. Valve wants them to remain for as long as possible.. They bring high ratings.. They will get rekt by Liquid, MVP and Newbee for sure
    • Alexandru "MilesLOL" Andreias ,
      so do you actually think secret can beat teams like newbee , mvp or liquid
    • Antivirus "lsdstoned" North ,
      Come on people! I couldn't make groups more even than Volvo did. [Group A]=[Group B] OG-----------Newbee Wings-------Liquid EG------------Secret NaVi---------MVP.Phoenix LGD---------VG.R (both teams have substitutes) Alliance----Fnatic TNC---------DC Wildcard #2 (coL or Esc)-----Wildcard #1 (EHOME) (possibly)
  • Mr "soly" Soly ,
    Group A volvooooooo??!!!??
  • Alexander "borggren4" Borggren ,
    At first glance I thought the same but when looking closer I realize that both groups are extremely even. MVP, Liquid, Newbee, Vici Reborn, Secret are all evenly matched and are considered one of the best teams and we should not underestimate DC/Fnatic either.
  • Shubham "akidos_" Bharadwaj ,
    Volvo Rename Group A - Contenders and Group B - Underdogs.. Feel sad for Group A.. Many deserving top 8 team will play elimination games....
  • anonaman "apatdapat" pakemo ,
    I feel that almost everyone is saying group A is stronger. I mean come on. Newbee+Liquid+MVP is almost as strong as OG+Wings+NaVi if not stronger EDIT: Personally, group A has more weaker teams like EG, TnC, Alliance while in B, I can only point out DC and maybe VG.R but that's it
