  • As such, this GSL also marked the GSL with the most non-Korean players, with 6 total, 5 being in Code A. Unfortunately, none of the 5 in Code A could make it past the Round of 32.
  • 50% of the players of this GSL were Terran as there were 32 of them in the 64 players of both Code A and Code S.
  • This was the first GSL where there was a tie in the Up and Down Matches. This was followed by another tie in the first round of playoffs before an outcome was decided.
  • Capital ship watch: Games where these units were a major factor in the outcome:
Unit W L
Battlecruiser None None
Brood Lord None None
Carrier None None
Mothership None None
