The 2012 Auction All-Kill OnGameNet Starleague is the first StarCraft II OnGameNet Starleague.


After the 2011-12 SK Planet Proleague Season 2 introduced StarCraft II as a KeSPA-sanctioned game, the 2012 Auction All Kill OnGameNet Starleague will be the first StarCraft II-only league with KeSPA Players competing alongside non-KeSPA players.

e-Sports Federation Players Participation[edit]

Main article about KeSPA's dispute with GOMTV and the e-Sports Federation

During the 2012 GSL Season 3, KeSPA announced that they will consider allowing their players to attempt to qualify for this season of the Global StarCraft II League, however on August 23 KeSPA announced that due to scheduling conflicts their players would not participate in this GSL season.[1]

Today, we have received an official response from KeSPA, stating that their players will, once again, not participate in the GSL Season 4 Code A qualifiers.


This announcement came as a surprise as KeSPA and ESF players have already been competing in the World Championship Series Korea Nationals and were scheduled to face off in the OnGameNet Starleague Season 1, as well as the progress made during the StarCraft II eSports Transition Conference where it was announced that the different leagues and KeSPA would be cooperating. Blizzard Korea staff immediately stated that they are disconcerted by KeSPA's announcement and will look over it and make an announcement about it soon.[2]

The next day on August 24 the eSports Federation announced that its players decided to support GOMTV in this conflict, and that all ESF players will not participate in the OSL until KeSPA's players participate in the GSL.[3] With the OSL Season 1 Round of 16 scheduled to take place on August 28 where the ESF's most prominent players were matched against KeSPA's most prominent players this boycott left KeSPA no choice but to announce that they will allow their players to participate in the next GSL Season, Season 5.[4]

On August 25 the eSports Federation replied to KeSPA's decision regarding GSL Season 5, saying that while this is a step in the right direction, they will not participate in the OSL until KeSPA players participate in the GSL and until KeSPA will allow its players to participate in any future GSL seasons as well.[5]
