The Carlo “Kuku” Palad-drove T1 and Djardel “DJ” Mampusti-bannered Fnatic will be in isolated gatherings come the principal period of the much-anticipated The International 10.
T1 was pooled in Group A with “Abed” Yusop’s Evil Geniuses, while Fnatic was set in Group B.
Joining T1 and Evil Geniuses in Group An are ruling double cross The International hero OG, Singapore Major boss Invictus Gaming, top Chinese crew Team Aster, alongside Alliance, Virtus.pro, Team Undying, and Thunder Predator.
In the interim, Fnatic will duke it out against WePlay AniMajor titlist PSG.LGD, European stalwart Team Secret, Vici Gaming, Quincy Crew, Elephant, Team Spirit, beastcoast, and SG Esports.
Matches in the gathering stage will be a best-of-two in a cooperative arrangement.
T1 is made out of Kuku, individual Filipino Dota symbol “Karl” Jayme, Thai rising star Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon, and Indonesian new kids on the block Kenny “Xepher” Deo and Matthew “Whitemon” Filemon.
Abed, in the interim, will have an elegant cast on his side in Atour “Arteezy” Babaev, Daryl “iceiceice” Koh Pei Xiang, Andreas “Cr1t-” Nielsen, and Tal “Fly” Aizik.

The main four groups from each gathering will continue to the upper section while the groups positioned fifth to eight will go down the lower section. The bottom groups from each tournament will be eliminated from the competition.
Insidious Geniuses will open the merriments tomorrow, Thursday, against Team Aster prior to taking on Kuku and T1.
