It gives me great pleasure to announce the launch of a new professional Starcraft 2 League! Yegalisk Master League will allow the current best players to compete for 1000$ prize pool over the period of a month.
Not only we will be offering the highest level of entertainment, but also actively promote the growth of Starcraft 2 Community by giving away FREE HotS copies after every stream! If you're watching us regularily - the odds are in your favour!
If you have a friend that is not convinced to starcraft - invite him over for a beer (or a juice if you're underage!) and let us do the rest of the magic!
Yegalisk Master League is an 8-man Tournament played in a Double Elimination System. Each player will get not only a shot at the main prize, but also a chance for revenge!
The 1000$ prize pool will be distributed between the Top 3 players:
The map pool:
Akilon Wastes [Blizzard]
Bel'Shir Vestige LE [Blizzard]
Cloud Kingdom LE [WCS-Blizzard]
Daybreak LE [WCS-Blizzard]
Neo Planet S [KeSPA]
Newkirk Presinct [Blizzard]
Ohana LE [WCS-Blizzard]
Star Station [GSL]
Whirlwind LE [Blizzard]
Players will veto down the maps until only one remains. The loser picks the next map.
At the end of a season the four players who fell out of the tournament first will be replaced by two new invited players, as well as two winners of the elimination tournaments.
