After four days of exhilarating TI11 Group Stage action from the best Dota 2 squads in the world, we now have the 16 teams who’ve advanced to the TI11 Playoffs.

The top eight performing teams from TI11’s Group Stage have emerged and secured an upper bracket berth in The International 2022’s Main Event. Meanwhile, teams that finished in the middle of the pack will continue their TI11 run in the lower bracket.

The clear frontrunners in Group A are Evil Geniuses, the first team to advance into the upper bracket with a 14-4 record. Joining the North American squad in the upper bracket are the top-performing teams from Group A including PSG.LGD, Team Liquid, and OG.

Continuing their run in the lower bracket are Hokori, Royal Never Give Up, and Gaimin Gladiators. Meanwhile, the bottom three teams — Soniqs, BetBoom Team, and BOOM Esports — were forced into a three-way tiebreaker for the final lower bracket spot in Group A.

BOOM Esports ultimately emerged victorious, defeating and eliminating both Soniqs and BetBoom Team from TI11.

The games in Group B were close from start to finish, and Western European squads Tundra Esports and Team Secret were the two teams who ascended to the upper bracket.

South American squad Thunder Awaken were the surprise team in their group as they finished third. Lastly, Chinese squad Team Aster were the last team to secure an upper bracket spot in the playoffs.

Shockingly, Team Spirit didn’t look like the same squad that won TI10 as they finished most of their group stage matches with draws. The Russian squad will now have to make it out of the lower bracket if they hope to defend their TI trophy.

Similar to Spirit, Fnatic and beastcoast narrowly missed out on an upper bracket berth and will have to continue their TI11 run in the lower bracket. Eastern European team Entity became the last team to make it into the playoffs after they defeated Talon Esports in a best-of-three tiebreaker match.
