For the 5th year running the Dutch StarCraft League hosts the DSCL Open. The prize pool for 2017 is €1,250 and as always the finals take place at an offline event in the Netherlands. This year it will take place at the E-sports Game Arena in Alphen aan den Rijn on Saturday, December 9th.

The DSCL Open of 2017 features the familiar Online Track as well as a new Local Track to the 12-player finals event.

Prize Pool[edit]

€1,250 will be divided among the 12 players at the Finals Event in the following ratio:

Online Track[edit]

The online track consists of two stages: online qualifiers and an online group stage. There will be 5 online qualifiers, all single-evening events starting at 19:00h CEST on the following dates:

  1. September 11th (Monday)
  2. September 20th (Wednesday)
  3. September 25th (Monday)
  4. October 4th (Wednesday)
  5. October 9th (Monday) - last-chance qualifier

The first 4 of these are single-elimination with all matches Bo1 except Ro8, Ro4 and 3rd-place match which are Bo3. The top 3 players advance to the online group stage. The 5th and last qualifier is only open to players who've made it to a Ro8 in previous qualifiers but have not yet qualified (between 5 and 20 players). This qualifier will be Bo3 single-elimination, except when the number of participants is 8 or less, in which case it will be Bo3 double-elimination. The top 2 players from this last qualifier will advance, so 14 players in total from the online qualifiers.

The online group stage, to be played in October/November, has 16 players: the 14 coming from the online qualifiers plus previous DSCL Open winners Harstem and uThermal, who receive invites. The players are divided into four separate 4-player groups, who will play GSL-style double-elimination to decide which 2 players out of each group advance. In total, 8 players advance to the finals event through the online track.

Local Track[edit]

Beside the 8 players who earn their ticket for the finals through the online track, 4 more players can make their way there through the newly introduced Local Track. Selected StarCraft II-tournaments in the Benelux from September through November will be giving out qualification points for the DSCL Open Local Track, and in the end the top-4 players will receive invites for the finals event. Tournaments included in the DSCL Open local track and the current ranking can be found on the DSCL website's Local Track-page.

In case a top-4 player from the Local Track ranking qualifies for the finals through the Online Track, they are discounted from the Local Track and their invitation will go to the next highest rated local player.

Offline Finals Event[edit]

A total of 12 players will be invited to the single-day finals event in the E-sports Game Arena in Alphen aan den Rijn on December 9th: 8 players from the Online Track, and 4 players from the Local Track. At the finals these 12 players will be split up into two 6-player Bo3 round robin groups. The best 3 players from each group advance to single-elimination playoffs. The #1 from each group advances directly to the semifinals (Bo5), while #2’s and #3’s will play one extra round (Bo3). The finals are Bo7.
