On December 17th, 2011, it was announced that PuMa would be attending,[10] but he wasn't listed in Blizzards HomeStory Cup IV announcement on December 29th.[7] Even though Revival qualified through the Korean Qualifier by placing 2nd, he was not listed in the Blizzard announcement either.[7] TaKe later said that PuMa was not attending because he wanted to participate in the preliminaries for Code A of the 2012 GSL Season 1.[11] DeMusliM canceled due to illness, DarkHydra would be his replacement.[12] White-Ra had to cancel too,[13] he would be replaced by PoYo.[8]
