Overview[edit]

The VANT36.5 National Starleague or KSL2 (VANT36.5 대국민 스타리그의) is an offline tournament broadcasted live on Afreeca. VANT36.5, which specializes in cosmetics, sponsored the event, as organized by Kongdoo and KJCOMMS, an online marketer.[1]

The Starleague was announced on September 21, 2014, with announcements noting the weekly Wednesday and Friday schedule to be help at the Afreeca FreecUP studio, formerly operated by GOMeXP[2]. The ₩30,000,000 winner's prize pool is one of the largest in the post-KeSPA era.

32 players were selected from two open offline qualifiers held in Seoul and Busan on October 16-17, 2015, out of 512 entries.[3] The round of 32 groups were announced on October 23, 2015.[4]
