CDEC was a Chinese wild card team that actually defeated EG in the upper bracket, sending them down to the lower bracket. However, EG was able to defeat LGD Gaming, another Chinese team, to make it to the grand finals for a rematch against CDEC.

The prize pool for this event was over $18 million, which was the largest prize pool in the history of both eSports and Dota 2. With EG taking home $6.6 million for first place, this event ranks as the second highest payout tournament in 2015, only trailing the 2015 World Series of Poker.
