KeSPA Rookie Draft

From Liquipedia StarCraft Brood War Wiki

Overview[edit]

The KeSPA Rookie draft was first held on March 24, 2005.[1] Players are eligible for the draft if they have a progamer license (e.g., they have won a Courage Tournament when these were still held), and are not on a pro-team. The announcement of the first draft stated that current progamers whose contracts with their team were not renewed would also enter the draft.

There is a longstanding practice that teams are allowed to "reserve" players, meaning that they have an exclusive opportunity to draft them before another team has the opportunity to do so. This is often how longstanding practice partners and trainees are inducted into their teams. Players listed in the early draft rounds are often such reserved players, although it is not always possible to verify this given the available documentation.[2] Apparently distinct from this, players are sometimes also listed as having been "recommended", joining their teams before the actual draft. Where this information is available, those players are listed in a separate table.

From 2005 to 2012, the draft was held twice yearly, in March and August. March 2012 was the final draft before KeSPA teams began the transition to Starcraft 2 with the Hybrid Proleague.
