Chronology

Map Pool[edit]

This GSTL used the same map pool as the previous GSTL, but was changed mid-season:

Crevasse and Xel'Naga Caverns were replaced with Antiga Shipyard and Daybreak[1] between GSL July and GSL August, thus the GSTL Season 1 always used the same map pool as the concurrently running GSL.

* GomTV still shows the names "Terminus RE" and "Tal'Darim Altar" in their broadcasts, while Terminus SE and Tal'Darim Altar LE are played.

The new GSTL Format[edit]

  • The new GSTL Full Group League will be played every Thursday and Friday.
  • The 12 participating teams will be divided into two groups:
  • Group A, the Jupiter League.
  • Group B, the Venus League.
  • Each team will go through a full league and the top 3 teams from each group will advance to the playoffs.
  • Matches will be played in the usual King of the Hill team league format:
  • GomTV selects the first map.
  • Coaches will decide the order of players to compete as the game progresses.
  • A player is able to achieve consecutive wins against the other team until he is defeated.
  • When a player loses, the next player from the team takes his place and selects the map.

Casters[edit]

Casting will be split 50/50 between 2 casting teams:

and:

  • "Wolf" Schröder
  • and guest casters:
  • Daniel "Unstable" Siddel
  • Trevor "TorcH" Housten
  • Erik "DoA" Lonnquist
