Information[edit]

The 2012 Global StarCraft II League Season 5 is the fifth season of the GSL in 2012. The GSL is the league where many of the best Korean and foreign professional gamers come to compete. The format allows up to a week's preparation before each of your matches, promoting well thought out play.

For Season 5, the GSL Code S semifinals and Code S finals—along with the 2012 GSL World Championship—will take place at IPL5 in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.[1]
