AIC 2018 Format

As mentioned in our previous article on the AIC, the 16 teams who qualified for AIC 2018 were arranged into four groups. The four seed teams from Vietnam (Team Flash), Thailand (Bazaar Gaming), South Korea (AHQ e-Sports Club) and Taiwan (J Team) have drawn three of the non-seed teams for the Knockout Stages.

Note that the seed teams will automatically proceed to the Group Stage and only the 12 non-seed teams will participate in the knockouts.

After the Knockout Stage, the teams placing last in their respective groupings will be eliminated from the tournament while the top two teams will proceed to the Group Stage.
