The International 2018 with 18 teams and over $20 million in prize money has finished with group stage and reached playoffs. Best 8 teams advanced from each group while last in each group has to say good bye to the event(participating at least). Top 4 teams in each group have advanced to upper bracket while 5-8 spots have moved to lower bracket.
