TI5 Schedule — Main Event:
On we go now to the main event of the International 2015. The main event will be held on August 3, 2015 which will culminate into the International 2015 finals on August 8, 2015. Each game will now be a best of three matches with a double elimination advantage for the winners’ bracket teams. This translates into a very important group stage for the teams. Yes, there will be no eliminated teams after the group stages but getting into the top half of the groups will ensure that teams will have at least two chances to get into the International 2015 finals.
The first games in the lower bracket will just be a best of one affair. Underscoring the importance of being in the upper half of the group stages after the group stages. The finals are going to be a best of five match.
The group stages will be held on July 27, 2015 to July 30, 2015. The 16 teams will be divided into two groups. Each team will face each other team in their group at least once playing a best of 2. The top four teams in each of the groups will automatically go into the winners’ bracket of the TI5 main event. While the bottom eigh teams will be cast into the losers’ bracket of the main event. There will be no teams eliminated during the group stages which mean more games from your favorite teams. Last year’s format had only eight teams reaching the main event.
