TI8 Main Event Format

As far as the format is concerned, you are looking at the exact copy of last year's Dota 2 The International tournament. That means all the teams will be divided into upper and lower bracket, depending on their placement after the 8 group stage matches. Top placing teams advance to upper while bottom placing teams advance to the lower bracket… not counting the 2 eliminated teams mentioned in the introductory paragraph. In terms of the matchups, we're talking about double elimination bracket system in which the grand finals are scheduled to be played in Bo5 manner. All other tournament rounds, with Lower Bracket Round 1 being the only exception, are going to be played as Bo3.
