Overview[edit]

The HungryApp Starz League with Kongdoo or Kongdoo Starz League (헝그리앱 스타즈 리그 위드 콩두) was an offline invitational tournament broadcasted live by HungryApp. HungryApp, which specializes in mobile game development, broadcasts on both on Youtube and live at Afreeca. The Starz League was organized by HungryApp in association with Kongdoo, an e-Sports management agency.[1]

The Starz League was announced on December 10, 2014, with announcements noting the finals would be held at an outdoor stage.[2][3] Various show matches would also be scheduled. The Starz League was operated from January through February 2015, with matches played on weekends at the HungryApp studio. The ₩40,000,000 prize pool was one of the largest in the post-KeSPA era.

16 players participated in the event, with the players' identities released every few days to build anticipation, from December 11-22, 2014, culminating in a group selection ceremony on December 27, 2014.[4] During the group selection, Kwanro was revealed to have replaced Terror and the order of maps to be played was determined by random draw.[5]

During the quarterfinals, the Starz League announced the finals would be held at GOM eXP Studio on March 1, 2015, thus representing a significant increase in capacity compared to its HungryApp studio.[6][7] Korean pop girl group Stellar was also announced as performers for the finals.[8][9]

Notably, a larger 32-player tournament, the 10th SonicTV Starleague, was held during largely the same two-month time period as the Starz League, with largely the same participants; prominent players who did not compete in the Starz League included JangBi, Shuttle and sSak.[10]
