Originally from Australia, the Aussies are super happy to have him back. An accomplished caster, GoDz has also added plenty of Majors and a number of The Internationals to his resume. He’s probably best known for his involvement in Beyond the Summit as it’s founder. Recently, he came back to Melbourne to cast the finals of the AEF Dota 2 Season 4 Championship. He’s a very down to earth Aussie and has done a lot of work promoting esports throughout the continent. GoDz enjoys coming back to his home country and continues to help drive esports in Australia.

The inaugural series will take place on Dec 8 and 9. AMD is the official presenting partner.
