The Staff Cup is back!

posted by Chris.Warrior, 2 years ago
The fourth edition of the Staff cup organised by de 'Kibyu' is just around the corner. This Friday October 4th it is again time to shine for those, that usually work behind the scenes: casters, team managers, editors, tournament admins and many others, who volunteer their free time. 16 teams will join the fun competition, that will kick off 17:30 CEST. While most teams will provide first-person streams, anyone interested in streaming is free to do so.

The tournament features a group stage followed by a Single-Elimination play-off bracket for the win. There will be four groups containing of four teams each. Only the two best team of each group advances to the playoffs. Besides the best-of-three grand final, all matches will be best-of-one and contrary to the last edition, game mode for all matches will be the classic captains mode.

It is yet to be announced, who will play for the joinDOTA team, that so far only showed disappointing performances. That could be the reason behind the changement of de HolyMaster, who will be leading The Defense in this edition instead of joinDOTA. Alongside these two teams, au TobiWan will again try to secure the victory with the team with a bound Drow Ranger as a banner. Last time they were stopped by the GD Studio, who will send their strongest players into the battle lead by uk PyrionFlax. However, since last edition's winner Keita-League disbanded, there are also a few new teams joining the competition. Please note that more organisations such as DotaLounge, WePlay and BeyondTheSummit have been invited but had to decline due to schedule conflicts!
