What is the format of GAMERS GALAXY: Dota 2 Invitational
The tournament will be played out over four days from March 2, to March 6. All ten teams have been divided into two groups of five. Both groups will play out a round-robin style bracket where every team in a group will play every other team in the same group. At the end of the group stages, the bottom teams from each group are eliminated. The third and fourth place teams will play a best-of-three play-in match and the first and second place teams in each group will automatically be moved to the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoff bracket.
