Geek Fam topped TNC Predator in 43 and 34 minutes. The Dota 2 event had been scheduled for 36 teams to play May 26-31 in Birmingham, England.

Europe/CIS play begins Sunday, the Americas start Monday and China will open play on Tuesday. The Southeast Asia bracket features six teams competing for a total of $40,000. After a single round-robin of best-of-three matches, the top two teams will make the upper bracket of the double-elimination playoffs, and the third- and fourth-place teams will be slotted into the playoffs' lower bracket.

Round-robin play ends Monday. Playoff matches will be best-of-three before a best-of-five final on May 31.
