A total of 16 teams make up the Group Stage participants, and they are divided into four groups where they play a double round-robin format. All matches are played in a best-of-one format. The top two teams of each group advance to the knockout stage, and the bottom two are eliminated.

EDward Gaming locks in the 2nd spot advancing to the knockouts by winning four games and only losing two matches. Fnatic and Cloud9 are eliminated from the tournament with disappointing results. Fnatic finished with only two wins and four losses, and Cloud9 is dead-last, only winning one game out of six total matches.

Group B
