HomeStory Cup V is a StarCraft II Tournament hosted by Dennis "TaKe" Gehlen at his studio apartment in Krefeld, Germany.

Overview[edit]

The HomeStory Cup, organised by Dennis "TaKe" Gehlen, is a tournament where TaKe invites star players from around the world into his home to compete and socialize with one another. Providing multiple streams and interviews over three to four days, it is a fun atmosphere for both players and fans alike.

Format[edit]

  • Two group stages
    • Ro32 stage: 8 groups of 4 players each
    • Ro16 stage: 4 groups of 4 players each, see Group Selection Procedure.
  • Top two of each group from the second stage will advance to the bracket
    • Bracket will be single-elimination, best of 5
    • Grand finals will be best of 7

Group Selection Procedure[edit]

Ro16 groups were selected according to the following procedure:

  • The top 4 Ro32 group winners (ranked by match and map score, ties broken by drawing lots) were distributed into the 4 Ro16 groups (alphabetically by ID).
  • The remaining 4 Ro32 group winners drew their group assignments from a hat.
  • The four groups were filled by the second place finishers from each Ro32 group (again drawing their assignments from a hat).
    • Any player who drew a Ro32 opponent again drew a new group.
  • Top 4 Ro32 winners were then allowed to change groups with any other player (the highest ranked player having the final selection).

For a full walkthrough of the actual group selection, see this post on TeamLiquid.net.

Tie Breaking[edit]

In case of two or more players having the same match score, ties are broken in order of:

  • Map score.
    • Match and map score between the tied participants.
      • Best of 1 tie-breaking matches.

Prize Pool[edit]

$25,000 is spread among the players as seen below:

Trivia[edit]

  • A day prior to the tournament, Ret tweeted that casters should stop plugging their own twitters constantly and should promote the players' twitters as well[4], after NaNiwa advanced to the Ro8 in the GSL Season 3 Code S and Tastosis only mentioned their own twitters. As a result, casters started plugging Ret's twitter during the HomeStory Cup which quickly became a meme[5][6], resulting in over 2,000 new followers.[7]
  • All 5 qualified players made it to the Playoffs.
