The Brood War Clan League (BWCL) is the oldest and still active foreign clan league. For a long time the organizers were able to fill 15 divisions with 10 clans in each; its reputation was based on the many top clans competing in it, often leading to a waiting list with more than 50 clans queued up.
This is a preview, we are always opened to suggestions and constructive criticism and we encourage to do so.
Let's register for a new season!!
A new mappool will be announced shortly, as was the case for last season, it is likely that the 2v2 and 1v1 mappools will be separate.
We are still looking for admins and casters, so if you are interested reply here, or PM me.
Aside from that all the rules are the same as last season.
Depending on the number of teams, there may only be one division E this season.
- Season 55 is planned to start Sunday January 23rd 2022.
As always the default time is 19:00 CET (1 PM Eastern).
- Double round robin (each clan meet twice) - In order to keep the playoff schedule orderly, each division will consist of 6 clans, the remaining free slots in the two lowest divisions are to be assigned on a first come, first serve basis, priority is given to clans that played season 54.
- 4x 1v1 + 1x 2v2, bo3
- Starting map given, loser pick, no double maps (unless both players agree)
- Every Sunday, 19:00 CET
- Points: one per game win + one per CW win (i.e. 3-2 = +4 and +2); walk.over = -2 for full CW, -1 if only one or 2 sets are WO-ed.
Same rules as season 54.
Notable points: a player can only play for one team in one division throughout the entire season, so check your roster before the season starts. In order to compete in the playoffs, a player must have played at least once in the regular season (either 1v1 or 2v2).
Yes Random IS allowed. Yes you can change races each set.
Every team that played in season 54 is invited. The leaders can either confirm here or on the BWCL squad leader discord (either is fine). If nothing is heard before January 9th, we will start going through the wait list for new entries, so do not wait too long.
New Teams are always welcome, please post here your team name, tag and location, as well as the list of players (max 20, min of 6). We will only have 6 divisions of 6 clan each, once all free slots are taken, a wait list will be made.
For the little league, the cutoff MMR is 1650. We may extend the league to more than 6 teams depending on interest.
We are also looking for caster, any language, so if you are interested don't hesitate to reach out to us.
We are looking forward to yet another successful season of BWCL with your help, support and activity! In the meantime, the BWCL admins would like to wish you all happy holidays!
