Overview[edit]

The Proleague is the premier Brood War team league. It was formerly hosted on the cable channels of OGN and MBCGame, with a company called IEG holding the broadcasting rights. The last season of the Brood War Proleague was solely broadcast on OGN as MBCGame shut down their operations in February of 2012.

Proleague shifted over from Broodwar to Starcraft 2 in December 2012. Since the 2014 season, it has been broadcasted by SpoTV Games.

Map Pool[edit]

The maps get renewed every season. These are often commissioned by KeSPA for the Proleague. The 2008-09 season of Proleague was the first to feature periodic breaks during which KeSPA could change the map pool. They took advantage of that rule for the first time in November 2008 by switching the map Raid Assault II for Rush Hour 3. The Map Pool for a specific season can be found on a season's "Overview" page.

Format[edit]

The Proleague has been through many format changes since its creation in 2003. The current season uses a Best of Five series for the regular season, while the finals will be a Best of Seven. In either instance, no player may play twice per match.

To see the format used for a previous season of Proleague, visit that season's "Overview" page.

Rules[edit]

  • KeSPA's rules apply to all Proleague games.
  • In each match, no player can be submitted twice in the first four sets.
  • The player entered for the Ace Game can be one that has already played. Ace Game no longer used in current Season.
  • If two teams have exactly the same record after the end of the regular period, two players will be chosen to play a single Ace Match that will determine which team will advance.

History[edit]

The 2003 Ever Proleague, organized by OGN, was the first Proleague to take place in Korea. MBCGame started its own team league, KeMongSa, soon after. The two leagues united in 2005 and with KeSPA's support, 2005 SKY ProLeague Round 1 was launched. In 2007, KeSPA claimed the broadcast rights to Proleague and auctioned it off to the sole bidder, IEG, causing a great scandal.[1][2]
