The Staff Cup returns
posted by HolyMaster, 148 days agoMark the 26th of January in your calendar, as the second edition of the Dota 2 Staff Cup, organized by 4PL's Kibyu brings important contributors to the scene into the spotlight once again.
The first Staff Cup happened in October. A selection of team managers (Drunkin, Paisy, breakthedeskplz, Marcus, Thon_Mayo) took the title in an eight team competition. Team joinDOTA achieved a disappointing 7th/8th place due to the usage of too many different players.
The second edition doubles the amount of participants to 16. joinDOTA gets to take part with two squads this time. jD #1 led by HolyMaster and jD #2 led by hjort will attempt to steal the crown, while TobiWan will guide a group of shoutcasters with the silliest teamname ever into certain defeat.
The rest of the teams include staff from community sites, clans, leagues, shoutcasting organisations, and more. Please note that several other crews like DCOM, TPL, DotaCinema, or Antena have been invited as well, but had to decline.
