1. Communication with teams and admins
1.1 - Check play.gosugamers.net for times for registration, check-in and start of the qualifier.
1.2 - All communication between teams about hosting and joining should be done through the match comments. By clicking your match and then clicking "Full match details" you'll get to the match page. At the bottom of this page you will find the comment-section. Post there to communicate lobby-password to the opponents.
1.2.1 - Also post a comment when the game starts and another one when it ends. This is important so the admins can keep track of the progress of the cup. If you do not do that, you risk getting disqualified.
1.3 - You may also use #gosucup (quakenet) on IRC during the qualifier to contact admins. If you don't have an IRC-client, use webchat.quakenet.org. You may also find some of the other teams there if they choose to be there. The same goes with the chat-server "GosuCup" in Dota 2.
1.3.1 - Use your teamname or teamtag as nickname on IRC and Steam.
1.4 - After the match is finished, the winning team should enter the correct result in the "Enter Result"-box which appears if you click your game.
