Following the good reception of our recent under 16 tournament where we received interest from a good number of young GMs, peak viewership of 180+ and even received some donations, Alpha X is proud to announce to a continuation of this tournament and rename it the Alpha X Junior Championships - a monthly GSL style tournament with a season finale in December! The aim is to support and foster Starcraft II rising stars that are not eligible for WCS circuit due to their young age. Therefore, this tourney is open to players of 15 years old and under. There is also a lifetime mmr limit of 6k and under.
Each monthly season will consist of an 8 player GSL style tournament (5 players invited, including the Top 4 from previous season; and 3 players qualified), with 3 casted match days (one for each group and one for playoffs).
At the end of the year we will host a season finale - the Junior Championships Global Finals featuring the top 8 players of the year, decided via a ranking system.
More information on the Format can be found on the Liquipedia page.
The aim is to have a minimum $50 monthly prize pool, up to a maximum of $100 if donations are received with any excess going to the next season.
The Global Finals will have a minimum $200 prize pool.
With the lack of tournaments for young aspiring players, we aim to run a year-long series of tournaments to help support and motivate the next generation of SC2 players and ensure its continuity.
We sincerely seek to get support from the SC2 community for our patreon page to supplement our prize pools and eventually contribute towards production and staff costs. We really aim to run a premier tournament for young players looking to be competitive and showcase their skills!
