Map Pool[edit]

This tournament used the same map pool as GSTL 1 with the exception of Lost Temple:

Crevasse • Crossfire SE • Metalopolis • Scrap Station • Shakuras Plateau • Tal'Darim Altar • Terminus RE • Xel'Naga Caverns •



  • Code S players each eliminated 1 map

Daniel "Artosis" Stemkoski and Nicolas "Tasteless" Plott remained the casters for Code Code S.

At the start of the season, Kelly "kellyMILKIES" Ong Xiao Wei was hired as a Code caster to give all casters an easier casting schedule.[1] She cast the Code games together with either Tasteless or Artosis until March 7, when another new caster, Erik "doa" Lonnquist began casting the Code Ro8 along with Kelly.
