Overview[edit]

Ajae League Season 2 is a team league featuring exclusively veteran players of the StarCraft Brood War scene. The league was organized by former CJ Entus, SKT T1 legend, GoRush and sponsored by the livestreaming company AfreecaTV.[1] The original tournament was run and organized by former Samsung KHAN legend firebathero. firebathero had been running the original Ajae League for months with a slightly different format prior to the one organized by GoRush. The primary idea in both versions was to involve the game's older generation of former players, featuring names such as Garimto and ClouD.

The draft selection was held on May 28, 2017 on a broadcast on AfreecaTV[2]. And the first match is scheduled to take place on June 5, 2017.

The Grand Finals will be held offline at the AfreecaTV Studio [3]

Trivia[edit]

Ajae (pronounced ah-jay) is Korean slang which means middle-aged man. It is mostly used in a slightly derogatory sense. They are poking fun at themselves for being old. All participants are over 30 in age and have completed military service (with the exception of HyuN). This is their criteria for being an "ajae".[5]
