Predictions and Betting Info
Predictions for Group A has gone for Alliance with their strong outing from the different tournaments that they have participated so far. Fnatic has fallen flat recently but still has a chance to get back in shape. EG can still be able to iron things out before the tournament and their matches can start. Group A will be halfway predictable with only a few teams that can upset the frontliner – Alliance. In Group B, on the other hand, it will be very hard to predict as Na’Vi will surely take the top spot but they will have to face strong contenders such Liquid and Speed as well as Dignitas can make a run for their money.
Format in the Dota 2 Champions League Group Stage will be best of three with a point system. For each win, the team will earn one point and will be accumulated for the entire Group Stage so that the team with the highest points will move on to the Semi Finals. The second and third spot will have to be played out with each other in order to proceed to the next round. Losers will be out of the tournament for good. In case of a tie between the points, there are rules in the competition that will dictate as to who will advance and who will be relegated. The rules state that when a tiebreaker happens, the winner will be determined by the amount of earned points, results of personal match, amount of victories, and the difference between won and lost maps between both teams. And if there is a case that the winner of the tiebreaker is undetermined, the organizers will have to add tiebreakers so that it will determine who will advance and who will go home.
