This year there were quite a few surprises in the season leading up to TI10. For one, OG almost didn’t make it. The two time TI champions had to battle it out at the Western Europe Qualifiers. They even had a somewhat trying time facing against Tundra Esports. This year’s TI, we’ll also get to see a somewhat new PSG.LGD team, and a highly motivated Evil Geniuses (EG). These two teams that have been doing consistently well throughout the year.
Another surprise is that kuroKy and his boys at Team Nigma as well as the formidable Team Liquid did not qualify TI career. As a fan of the Dota scene, it’s quite sad that we won’t get to see Miracle and Mind Control go ham on players this year. But, like what Mushi said in our recent interview, it’s different because of the pandemic and online tournaments, some may not have been used to the new system. So, we shall see in the next TI if it’ll be as exciting as ever.
It was also announced that this year’s TI will not have a crowd. So, to some teams, the crowd factor may be an issue, or it may not be.
As this is a brand new era of TI, it’ll be exciting to see how the teams perform and how they overcome obstacles that they may not be used to.
Without further ado, here is the schedule and results of the Group Stage:
