From Liquipedia Dota 2 Wiki


Format[edit]

For the full rules, look here

  • Eighteen teams divided in two groups of nine teams each where they play in a round-robin format.
  • All matches are played in a Bo2.
    • A win (2-0) provides 2 points.
    • A draw (1-1) provides 1 point.
    • A loss (0-2) provides 0 points.
  • Top four teams in each group advance to the Upper Bracket of the Main Event.
  • Bottom team in each group is eliminated.
  • Remaining teams advance to the Lower Bracket of the Main Event.
  • Tiebreakers:
    • If there is a tie along the Upper and Lower Bracket or Lower Bracket and elimination divider, an additional set of games will be played.
    • For other ties (in order of importance):
      • Head to head result between the tied teams
      • Results against lower seeded teams (from directly below till last place)
      • If a tie can be broken along the way, the process is restarted (back to head-to-head result)
      • Coin toss
