ProDota Cup EU 4 ended its fourth iteration of the this monthly cup last night after crowning ATN as the new champions. Sixteen invited teams competed for the $5,000 prize pool. ProDota Gaming was on hand to defend their title but failed with one game short as they stepped down to second place.
ProDota Gaming cruised along the upper brackets with a pattern of 2:1 victories over NoLifer, PRIES, Ad Finem and Danish Bears before they landed in the Grand Finals.
ATN had a much harder route. After receiving a defwin in their first round against HellRaisers, they then fell to Danish Bears 2:0. In the lower brackets they then took another defwin against Scaryfacezzz and survived the brutal best-of -one matches against Oowway and YeS. The team then advanced to sweep through PRIES and Danish Bears to rise into the grand finals.
