After four days of round robin action, the 2016 League of Legends International Wild Card Invitational heads to the playoff round, with four teams fighting for one spot at the Mid-Season Invitational. The semifinal round kicks off Wednesday as Russian team Hard Random takes on Brazilian INTZ e-Sports in a best-of-five at 5 p.m. ET. You can watch live on Riot Oceania's Twitch.

Hard Random, INTZ and Turkish side SuperMassive eSports all finished the round robin with a 5-2 record, forcing a pair of one-game tiebreakers. Hard Random beat INTZ in the first tiebreaker, and lost to SuperMassive in the second. Hard Random also beat INTZ in their head-to-head match on Day 1.

Hard Random has shown a preference for 1-3-1 compositions, utilizing mid laners like Ryze and even Vladimir, while INTZ has swayed more towards siege comps with mid laners like Azir (a champion INTZ's Tockers is very capable on) and Varus. Hard Random looked like the best team in the tournament through the first three days, but slipped a little on Day 4 and was unable to clinch the No. 1 seed.

This post will be updated once the games start with picks, bans and results, so spoilers below!
