A quick look at the tournament’s European section will tell you that the two English teams, Fnatic and Origen, are both obvious favorites to finish top of their groups. However, there are other teams in the tournament that have been competing on the world’s biggest stages for years (and they’re not the Chinese giants that everyone expects to show up). Here are the four teams you should watch out for.
The 2015 World Championships began today in Brazil, and there’s a lot of competition going on. In Group D, European champion and defending champion SK Telecom T1, defending champion and world champion Samsung Galaxy, and last year’s runner-up CJ Entus are all competing for the title of world number one.

What Is The Format Of The Group Stage?
The Group Stage is the first wave of the 2015 World Championship competition, often known as “Worlds.” The 2015 Group Stage will be place in Paris, France, over two weeks beginning October 1.
The Group Stage matches are always played in a Best of 1 double Round Robin style. Each team in a Group has two games against the other teams in their Group.
The two teams with the best records from each Group will progress to the 2015 World Championship Knockout Stage, while the lowest two teams will be eliminated.
How Were They Divided Into Groups?
On the Group Draw show, the Teams were assigned to their Groups via a random weighted draw. You may see a live-streamed version of the Group Draw Show here.
A few regulations govern the Group Draw, one of which is that teams from the same area cannot be placed in the same group. In addition, not every area was required to have a team in each Group. For example, a group might include NA, EU, KR, and IWC but not CN.
Teams were divided into groups using the method outlined below, which included drawing them from three separate pools. This is intended to provide us with a good balance.
Pools were created depending on the teams’ regional seeding.
- Pool 1: Korea, China, Europe, and North America’s top seeds
- Pool 2: Korea’s No. 2 and 3 seeds, China’s No. 2 seeds, Europe’s and North America’s No. 2 seeds, and the LMS’s No. 1 and 2 seeds.
- Pool 3: European and North American No. 3 seeds, as well as both seeds from the IWC Qualifiers.
What Is At Stake In The Group Stage?
Teams compete in the Group Stage for a spot in the Knockout Stage of the tournament’s Quarterfinals round. Based on their record inside their Group, the top two teams from each Group will be placed in the Quarterfinals bracket.
Teams who finish first in their group will face a team that finished second in another group, thus placement is crucial.
Teams will be awarded prize money depending on how well they do in the Group Stage. While each team receives something, the higher their ranking, the more they get. You can find out more about the prizes by clicking here.
