About[edit]

IPL3: Origins is the third tournament in the IGN ProLeague tournament series and IGN's first live StarCraft II event. It was held at Caesar's Palace and Bally's, Atlantic City, New Jersey, United States. The tournament was casted by IPL mainstay casters CatsPajamas, HDStarcraft and PainUser who were by Apollo, djWHEAT and DoA.

IGN offered several streams including an innovative roaming camera stream where players and viewers were interviewed throughout the event, this also allowed IGN to stay on air even when a freak series of events caused the Internet connection at the venue to go down for several hours.

Main Event[edit]

Four groups of 4 (each group consisting of 2 invitees and 2 from online qualifiers) will battle it out. This will determine the seeds into the Championship Bracket.
