The International 2019 is underway in Shanghai, China.
18 teams are battling it out in the group stages. 16 teams proceed to the playoffs, while 1 team from each group gets eliminated.
We already bid adieu to Chaos Esports yesterday, who placed last in group A.
NiP had a minor chance of avoiding elimination on day 4 of group stages if they win their games and a host of other results went their way.
But alas, that is not the case.
NiP were eliminated from The International 2019, when they lost their first game against EG today, and when Infamous and RNG tied their series 1-1.
Ninjas in Pyjamas statement:
Current group stage table:
With NIP eliminated, the number of 2-time hopefuls to win TI is lessened by one.
The group stages ended today. The playoffs begin on 20th August 2019 at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai.
For highlights or replays, one can visit the respective twitch channels and check out the past broadcasts.
All games are also uploaded to the DOTA 2 official YouTube channel.
The action resumes on 20th August at 8:30 AM IST.
