It's Gosu April Open #1 Brackets

It's Gosu April Open #1 provided quite a few upsets as Trademark eSports and Blackfade were both eliminated in the third round of the bracket by and the new team on the block named SoonTour, respectively. The latter went on to defeat both Decerto and Clan Milk to secure their spot in the invitational, before failing to monetize their cinderella run in the finals where they got defeated by Frenetic Array with a 2-1 end result. Obvious favorites on the other side of the bracket were the aforementioned Australians and Fnatic, who still compete in HoN events, despite their recent switch to Dota2.

In the second qualifier which was played this weekend, Trademark eSports got their revenge on which seemed to give them the momentum to confidently seal their Invitational spot by going all the way to the throne. The home team of It's Gosu, who didn't participate in the first open qualifier, managed to proceed to the semi-finals to secure their spot in the main event, before they got defeated by Blackfade, who in the earlier round had to come on top of Decerto.
