Shanghai Major to have a totally new set of people working on it

The Shanghai Major was notorious for its various problems within the game. The Shanghai Major saw the production value being really bad and there were a lot of technical and organisational issues with the tournament. With more events coming up in China soon, there are big apprehensions about the probability of success for these tournaments.

We will see a totally new Dota2 team for the Shanghai Major, if Cyborgmatt is to be believed. This defintiely redefines our expectations from the event. China is a country with a huge fan following for Dota2.

The Group Stages have been announced.

The teams were consequently grouped into four different groups for the beginning of the major final stage in Shanghai with two selected teams playing. 
The groups are the following:
  • GROUP A:

    • Keen Gaming (China, Qualifier)
    • LGD Gaming (China, Qualifier)
    • Newbee (CN, Direct Invite)
    • OG Dota (EU, Qualifier)
    • OpTic Gaming (NA, Qualifier)
    • Team Liquid (EU, Direct Invite)
    • TNC Pro Team (SEA, Qualifier)
    • Vici Gaming (CN, Qualifier)

    GROUP B:

    • Effect (CIS, Qualifier)
    • Evil Geniuses (NA, Qualifier)

    • paiN Gaming (SA, Qualifier)
    • Team Secret (EU, Direct Invite)
    • VGJ.Thunder (CN, Qualifier)
    • Virtus.Pro (CIS, Direct Invite)

The category has two top teams for the top bracket, with the two bottom teams in the knockout phase qualifying for the bottom bracket round. The team that wins in the top bracket will play against the winner of the bottom bracket in the grand finale.

The case ends on 25 February, Group A is locked, Group B is on 26 February, Group C is on 27 February and Group D is on 28 February.

A short pause takes place for the teams before the upper and lowers brackets commence on 2 March 2016, before the Grand Final will be played on Friday 5 March.

That means that esports betting fans will enhance their wagering experience with a host of high-quality Dota 2 matches throughout the week.
