Day 1 of The International 12 was full of exciting matches, many of which ended with surprising results. It’s starting to become clear that the teams who were regarded as the top favorites are indeed in great shape.

The best results were obtained by Team Spirit, Team Liquid, LGD Gaming, and Tundra Esports. But other teams, such as PSG Quest, beastcoast, and Azure Ray also did well.

What was shocking is that Keyd Stars, who were supposed to have no hope of winning a single game, drew twice. While Talon Esports, who were supposed to be among the favorites in group D, lost two matches and are now one step away from an early elimination.

Group A results

In group A of TI12, Team Spirit looked unstoppable and won three consecutive matches. Their opponents were 9Pandas, SMG, and Entity. They’ve already won, even before the 2nd day matches are finished.

For 9Pandas and Entity, day 2 will be tough and they need good results to guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs. So far, their record is 1 W – 1 D – 1 L. EG got 1 point in their first two matches, while SMG got 1 point in their first three matches.
