Dota 2: TI 9 Groups, Tiny’s Prestige Item and Custom Creeps Revealed

With just a day until the biggest event in Dota 2’s history, we finally know the two groups in the tournament. As you can see, both groups seem to be reasonably balanced. However, Group A will definitely be a lot more interesting to watch. After all, Team Liquid and Team Secret are in it.

Dota 2 The International TI9 Pool Groups A B

Group A

Mineski, Keen Gaming and Newbee will be the three teams that will have to battle not to get eliminated here. Although KG joined as a direct invite, their latest performances have been abysmal, which is very worrying, especially for an event of this magnitude. On the other hand, Newbee has the needed players to achieve their goals. As such, the question remains if they will be able to utilize it properly.

The big favorites will probably have little to no trouble here. Liquid, Secret and PSG.LGD are undeniably on another level compared to the rest here.

Group B

The second group is a little bit more unpredictable. At first glance, Na’Vi, RNGU and Infamous are going to be fighting not to go home. However, this is TI, so nothing is guaranteed. We might see some crazy results even during the Group Stage.

Of course, Virtus.Pro, Vici, EG and OG seem to be the teams that will prevail here.

Tiny's Prestige Item

Apart from the group stage, we also got introduced to Tiny’s prestige item. In order to get the Majesty of the Colossus, you need to be level 255 or above. Having said that, the cosmetic item has six pieces – a weapon, Tiny Tiny, Tiny Small, Tiny Medium, Tiny Large and Tiny Taunt. Feel free to experiment with other sets and see what works best for you.

Reptilian Refuge
