​ESL revealed groups Tuesday for the upcoming ESL One Hamburg Dota 2 tournament.


ESL One Hamburg is one of the largest tournaments kicking off the ​Dota Pro Circuit season, but unlike previous years the tournament actually won't be a Major. This means there's no DPC ranking points to be earned, only the $300,000 prize pool. The tournament will be held in Hamburg Germany and will feature 12 of the best teams from around the world.

​​The groupings mean that whichever team is in Group A will solely compete against other teams in that group until the grand final, where the winner of each group will face off. The following are in Group A:

- Evil Geniuses
​- ​Mineski
​- Vici Gaming

​PaiN Gaming

- Team Secret
​- ​Alliance

And these are in Group B:

- Virtus.pro
​- Forward Gaming
​- ​Ninjas in Pyjamas
​- Team Aster
​- CompLexity Gaming
​- EVOS Esports


The tournament runs Oct. 23-25
