At 2000 CET today, United States It's Gosu will take on Ukraine Na'Vi on their home ground in the It's Gosu Monthly Madness tournament, where the winner will advance to the semi finals and fight for the prize of $1000.

Whilst teams such as Europe EG, Denmark Quantic and United States Complexity have been touted to overthrow Na'Vi as the best team in Dota 2, It's Gosu have been showing their potential to challenge for the top.

In fact, many will recall during the Infused Cup when It's Gosu overcame Na'Vi, with major props to the impressive Invoker play by Bulba. The absolute highlight of that game however will be LightOfHeaven's Nature's Prophet managing to escape Bulba's Invoker and Universe's Slardar after both players managed to corner him.

A month after the Infused Cup, the day these two teams meet again has finally arrived, and we couldn't be more excited as we see these two teams battle it out in a best of 3 series.

Whilst Na'Vi has won The Defense and The Premier League in a span of a few days, It's Gosu has yet to win any major competition and will be bloodthirsty for their first win in their home competition.

However, the recent results of It's Gosu show a team with beginning to showcase their talents as they beat EG in the Star Ladder, Western Wolves in The Dignitas Invitational en route to clinching Fourth Place, their best showing in Dota 2 so far. Whilst for Na'Vi, their hot streak of championships were stalled by

Na'Vi will be seeking for revenge with their full roster this time, whilst It's Gosu will have a change in lineup as 1437 will be departing the team and will be replaced by Steven 'Korok' Ashworth, a player the community should be familiar with. With stellar performances in the past few games, Korok will join the roster of It's Gosu.
