DOTA 2 TI3 Format

WILD CARD FORMATE

  1. Best of five series between Quantic Gaming and RattleSnake
  2. Winning team becomes the sixteenth and final team to compete in The International

A coin toss decides which team has 'Selection Priority' in DOTA 2 TI3. The team with Selection Priority gets to either pick their side of the map or the drafting order. At the start of the next game, the team that lost the coin toss will have Selection Priority.

It alternates until Game 5 where another coin toss is done.

PRELIMS FORMATE

  1. Two groups of eight teams
  2. Each series is two games against the same opponent
  3. The order of team matchups is random

In each series, a coin toss decides which team has Selection Priority. The team with Selection Priority gets to either pick their side of the map or the drafting order. At the start of the next game, the team that lost the coin toss will have Selection Priority.

Extra Games: If teams tie along the Upper and Lower Bracket divider, more games will be played to determine seed.

Other seeds are resolved with the following steps:

1- Compare the matchup history of these teams

2- Compare their wins vs the seed right below them. Repeat until resolved

3- Coin toss

MAIN EVENT FORMATE

The 1st place in each group picks their opponent from either the 3rd or 4th place finish in the opposite group.

Upper Bracket

  1. Upper Bracket A: Group A Seed 1 vs Group B Seed 3/4
  2. Upper Bracket B: Group B Seed 2 vs Group A Seed 3/4 (The team Group B Seed 1 didn't choose)
  3. Upper Bracket C: Group B Seed 1 vs Group A Seed 3/4
  4. Upper Bracket D: Group A Seed 2 vs Group B Seed 3/4 (The team Group A Seed 1 didn't choose)

First Round: The higher seed has Selection Priority for game one and then alternates for game two. If it goes to a third game, the higher seed has Selection Priority again.

Other Rounds: Selection Priority is determined by total games W-L record of the Main Event. If it is tied, a coin toss determines it.

All Upper Bracket games are Best of Three. Grand Final is Best of Five, no game advantage.

Lower Bracket games are Best of One until Round 4 where they become Best of Three games.
