The Group Stage of MSI 2022 is behind now as six teams have made it to the Rumble Stage for better competition between themselves.
This year, there were many different regionally dominant teams all around the globe and they had a chance to show their capabilities on the international stage. The first stage of MSI 2022 was the Group Stage. Royal Never Give Up, T1, and G2 Esports completed the phase without giving any casualties. Evil Geniuses, PSG Talon and Saigon Buffalo were the second-seeded teams in the phase to advance in the tournament. On the other hand, fastPay Wildcats (İstanbul Wildcats), RED Canids, ORDER, Detonation FocusMe, and Team Aze have been eliminated and went back to their home countries.

Royal Never Give Up were also another team that everyone expected domination during the group stage. The Chinese team won every game and completed the stage undefeated just like T1. PSG Talon have also clinched a spot by winning three games against RED Canids and İstanbul Wildcats.
