Following the undisputed success of our previous editions, It’s Gosu is now proud to announce the third season of Monthly Madness, this time featuring 16 teams from Asia that will battle it out for $1,000 in prize money.
The second edition of The International is just around the corner and some of the invited Asian teams have little to no tournaments to play. As a result, we have decided to change our priorities as this season will not aim the North American and European scene but the Asian scene. Nevertheless, the format of the competition remains the same as the 16 participants will play in a single-elimination bracket, all Best-of-Three matches leading to a Best-of-Five Grand-Finals format. This third edition will also see the return of our casters, Aaron ‘Ayesee’ Chambers and Andy ‘Draskyl’ Lee Stiles but new faces will also make their apparition in our tournament as casters as Vladmir ‘Maelstorm’ Kuzminov and Wang ‘Anderson’ Yumin will be casting for the Russian and Chinese community respectively.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at the invited teams:
- Absolute Legends
- Invictus Gaming
- LGD Gaming
- Team DK
- World Elite
- Mineski PowerColor
- Invasion Red
- Orange eSports
- Team Zenith
- MiTH Trust
All the matches of the tournament will be played on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 AM EST / 14:00 CEST / 20:00 CST. If for a reason or another a team can’t play during the weekend, the match will be moved to Friday. The first matches will start on Saturday, July 7th!
