Are you a new player that would like to get connected to the foreign brood war community? Would you like a chance to show off your skills and be casted? The Rookie StarLeague is your opportunity! It is a multi week tournament that will have games casted on twitch. We are back yet again for season 4 to provide newer players with a chance to play in a competitive environment.
Any player under 1350 mmr (at time the tournament starts) that has not placed 1st-4th in any previous RSL. No offraces or smurfs, we will check ladder accounts. However, you may racepick your mirror matchup if you so choose. If you fit this description or would like to cast, join our Discord! https://discord.gg/PDWrVpm
This event will begin Sunday, August 23 at 0:00 GMT, as signups close. ALL PLAYERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO CHECK IN WITHIN 48 HOURS OF THE TOURNAMENT STARTING. Signups are available now on challonge, at https://challonge.com/RSL4 . Please create your challonge account using the same name as your ladder account! The event will go over the time span of 1 and a half months, with 2 weeks for the group stage and 1 week for every following stage.
The tournament will have a round robin group stage for the first round, in which each participant plays one game against each other player in the group. Each player agrees on a map from the map pool. The top two players from each group will advance. After the first round, there will be a single elimination tournament with each round consisting of a BO5. Each player will ban 2 maps to find the first map, and loser will pick the next map until the series is decided.
Due to the round robin format, there will not be deadlines for each individual game in the group stage; there is only the requirement that you have all your games in by Saturday September 5 11:59 PM GMT/7:59 EDT. Players will be REQUIRED to post replays in order to claim a win.
Overwatch, Match Point, Neo Sylphid, Aztec, Polypoid, Circuit Breakers, New Empire of the sun. If you need any of these maps, they will be posted in the discord under #map-pool.
GL HF, I hope to see you there!
