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. Nowadays we have a more modest 5 divisions and the MMR locked little league.
This is a preview, we are always opened to suggestions and constructive criticism and we encourage anyone to do so.
Let's register for a new season!! Please confirm your participation and registration as soon as possible thank you. Deadline is May 1st, earlier is better.
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.
Most rules stay the same, but some minor changes were made in phrasing. One Notable change is if a player is registered in a clan but doesn't play for them at all in the season, they can join another clan mid-season and play for them.
Last season had several clans merging or dropping off last minute but this season we aimed to get back to 6 clans per division from A to D. E will be filled by as many clans as registered, same for the little league.
- Season 56 is planned to start Sunday May 8th 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 lowest division are to be assigned on a first come, first serve basis, priority is given to clans that played season 55. Div-E may be larger or smaller than 6 clans depending on registrations.
- 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.
Mostly the same rules as season 55.
Notable addition: once again, if a player is registered in a clan but doesn't play for them at all in the season, they can join another clan mid-season and play for them.
Yes Random IS allowed. Yes you can change races each set.
Every team that played in season 55 is invited. The leaders can either confirm here or on the BWCL squad leader discord (either is fine). If nothing is heard before May 1st their spot may be forfeited. 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).
For the little league, the cutoff MMR is 1650. We may extend the league to more than 6 teams depending on interest and registration up to a maximum of 10.
We are also looking for casters, 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!
