GosuCup for DotA kicking off

Posted by Philipp "ereskigal" Hartmann at 01 July 2009 14:21

Update: Since we already got MORE than enough teams signed in, the signups are closed! Thanks to everyone. Teams will be released tomorrow afternoon!


I will return from university at 17:00 so I think it will be released at about 18:00 CET

Starcraft is already in the midst of Season 2, Warcraft 3 had some 1on1 and some 2on2 cups already. Now it is time for DotA to pull off with GosuCups.
After a long break, the last tournament was CotA, we will try to host some tournaments with streams, and maybe casts.

For this Cup, the first one, we created the following format and the following rules:

32 teams will participate, 8 of them invited, 24 to sign in. Best of one double elimination, with BO3 In WB and LB finals and in the grand final.
