18 Dota 2 teams will be divided into two groups of nine teams in a round-robin format in TI10’s group stage.

Each team will play two games against each opponent in the group. A team that wins their match 2-0 earns 2 points, a 1-1 draw gives them 1 point, and a 0-2 loss leaves them with no points.

The top four Dota 2 teams in each group will advance to the Upper Bracket of the Main Event, while the bottom team in each group will be eliminated from TI10. Teams placed in the middle continue to the Lower Bracket of the Main Event.

The Main Event then proceeds with a double-elimination bracket. All matches will be played in a best-of-three series, except for the first round of the Lower Bracket, which will be a best-of-one.

The TI10 Grand Final will be a best-of-five match.
