After a hiatus of almost five months, GosuGamers is glad to report back with another DotA tournament. Yet again, German gaming equipment manufacturer ROCCAT agreed to mobilize the prize money for this event, a fortunate circumstance for which we would like to thank the group wholeheartedly. The organization of the cup will entirely happen on

In comparison to the previous GosuCup that only allowed European and American teams to participate, GosuCup #4 will include South-East Asia. Everybody may sign and play in one of the eight region-specific qualifiers a 64 teams, from which four are accounted to Europe, two for America and two for South-East Asia. The semi finalists from each qualifier reach a best of one held groupstage, that will span 32 teams in eight divisions. Concluding the tournament will be single elimination play-offs in best of three format.

The invitation system, as well as the preferred registration model from the last GosuCup got removed, which means that all teams have to pass a qualifier, in order to reach the groupstage.

Region-specific default venues for the tournament have been set up at the Ranked Gaming Client (RGC), a big supporter of this event. Find out how to use the popular DotA platform by reading the official RGC tutorials.
