In B group Ninjas in Pyjamas team from Sweden played brilliantly with the final 10 points. The second ticket to the playoffs in the group to learn (monkey) Business. Our CIS Rejects and Natus Vincere have not won a single match.
Team (monkey) Business without a defeat held the entire playoffs. Champions The International Alliance 3 without first lossless dealt with Team Liquid, and then in the finals losers have won Ninjas In Pyjamas. So, (monkey) Business and Alliance will represent Europe in Frankfurt on the Main Event.
# American Division.
The American group stage marked by the most smooth game: earned the highest number of draws. Also note, that 2 Peruvian teams - Sector V (Elite Wolves) and Team Unknown (Unknown.xiu) passed their group and advanced to the playoffs.
As the strongest in the region deserved the group came Cloud9 (though not without losses) and Digital Chaos. With the first-place team came out and Sector V.
In the playoffs, we had a tense game on an equal footing. Team Unknown, although lost in the major for Cloud 9, but in loser quite unexpectedly won luminaries Digital Chaos 2: 0.
So America's Main Event will present Cloud 9 (USA) Team Unknown (Peru).
In the Chinese tournament exactly as expected and came out of their groups with the 1st place, then naturally we went all the playoffs The International 2 Champion Newbee team and The International 4 champion - Invictus Gaming.
Playoff Invictus Gaming lost in the major for Newbee, but loser without problems dealt with Newbee Young 2 : 0. It makes sense to hope that will adequately Newbee resistance leaders in the finals of Championship.
Under the South Asian teams played out a real battle. Strongest Region's team Fnatic (Malaysia) took place without problems their group without any loss 4 wins, 0 losses, 0 draws. However, in the playoffs suddenly gave way Mineski (Philippines), although ultimately still reached the final regional qualifying.
