Group A is an all Asian group with last season's winners Invictus Gaming looking to make a statement once more with their revamped roster. MLG Columbus runner's up, DK is also in group A whereby Yee Fung 'Mushi' Chai will be facing his old teammates as Titan is drawn into group A as well. Vici-Gaming and TongFu finishes off the teams in group A.
Conversely, Group B is largely made up of Western teams with the two qualified teams, Fnatic and Speed Gaming being placed in this group. Last season's runners up, LGD.int is also placed in group B alongside their brother team LGD.cn. Up and coming team, DT Club is the last team for the group.
As expected, the groupstage will be a round robin format with the top three teams making it into the playoffs. The highest ranked team of each group will head into the semi-finals directly while the other two are to start in the quarter finals.
The prizepool for this season totals around $44,000. Teams will be flying to China and play the groupstages live from the Gamefy's studio.
