Hidden Cup 4 (HC4) is a tournament hosted by T90Official that will take place in February (Qualifiers) and March 2021.[1] It was announced at the end of the 2v2 World Cup (2020) main event. After qualifiers are done, players are "hidden" until the end of the tournament. Neither the commentators, the audience, or the top 16 competitors know the real identity of the players in each match.
