Set to take place in October, TI10’s Group Stage will take place over the course of over four days, from the 7th to the 10th. The knockout stages will continue on October 12th with the finals slated for the 17th. The winning team will not only get to raise the iconic Aegis of Champions but also will take home the largest share of the $40,018,195 prize pool.
Currently, teams are fighting for the final spots at TI10 in their respective regional qualifiers. The WePlay AniMajor Champions, PSG.LGD will hope to recreate their title winning performance. Other favorites such as Evil Geniuses, T1, and Virtus.pro have already all qualified. With only two spots remaining from China and Western Europe, the remainder of the Group Stage should be filled out soon.
