The Following Teams Became The Owners Of Direct Invites To The Final Part Of Ti6:
- OG managed to win two of the three majors, and on the eve of the announcement of the list of invitees, they added a win at ESL One to their track record. The international team, which does not represent any of the leading organizations and was organized less than a year ago, best demonstrated the dynamism of the esports scene and high competition. The backbone of the team was made up of two former Team Secret players, Swede Johan Sundstein (“Notail”) and Israeli Tal Azik (“Fly”), as well as Amer al-Barkawi (“Miracle”), who gained wide popularity, having achieved the highest individual rating in the world, not being a professional player.
- Team Liquid is a new roster of a well-known esports organization with a long history, built around another veteran who played for Team Secret and Natus Vincere, German Kuro Salehi Takhasomi (“Kuroky”). The team took second place in two Majors organized by Valve, adding to the list of recent achievements the victory at the Moscow Epicenter.
- Newbee has previously won The International 2014, but the roster invited to TI-6 was noticeably different from what they won in 2014. The team consisted of the most talented Chinese players who were undefeated for a long time until their unbeaten streak was interrupted by OG.
- Natus Vincere became the second invited team to have previously won The International. Compared to the victorious 2011, the Ukrainian team retained only two players – Daniil Ishutin (“Dendi ”) and Ivan Antonov (“Artstyle”). Over the past few years, the composition of most CIS teams has been unstable, but against the background of their opponents, it was Na`Vi who performed best in LAN tournaments, deserving a direct invitation to TI-6.
- MVP Phoenix performed consistently well at LAN tournaments on the eve of The International 2016.
- LGD Gaming received an invitation by placing in the top four at the previous LAN tournament organized by Valve.
Teams that didn’t receive invites despite a good season performance included Team Secret and Evil Geniuses (last year’s TI-5 winners). Both teams make roster changes outside of Valve’s transfer window, as a result of which they did not receive a direct invitation to The International itself, or even to closed regional qualifiers, and were forced to qualify on an equal basis with other teams through open qualifiers.
In 2016, as in the previous ones, the qualification was divided into 4 regions: Europe, America, China, and Southeast Asia.
The general trend is that the next The International beats the previous one. And if we take into account the forecasts of experts on the growth of the eSports industry, large investments in it, and simply the growth of numbers in the rating, it is already possible to draw in your mind a lot of zeros for the next prize funds.
