Evil Geniuses and Tundra Esports took the top spots in Group A and Group B respectively. These two are the teams to beat, but attention will also be on the favorites PSG.LGD, who started out slow but picked up the pace.

Over the course of four days, 183 games were played (considering one game was forfeited due to medical issues, and four tiebreaker games were played). A total of 114 of the 123 heroes were picked in the group stages, leaving only 9 heroes unpicked.
