Yesterday evening saw the conclusion of the Group Stages for The International 2015 after four days of extremely intense competition. Following a tie-breaker round between Empire and Virtus.Pro, the Upper and Lower Brackets are now confirmed for the Main Event, with rising stars like Wild Card winners CDEC Gaming joining tried and true fan favourites such as Evil Geniuses, Team Secret, and LGD Gaming in the Top 8. On the flip side, all teams which have previously won The International (with the exception of Alliance) are currently stuck in the Bottom 8, with a few returning champion players sitting comfortably in the Upper Bracket as part of their new teams. A list of all the Upper and Lower Bracket teams can be found below.

If the past four days are anything to go off, The International 2015 could very well be the best and closely matched Dota 2 tournament to date, so make sure you don't miss a moment!
