IGN ProLeague Season 5, also known as IPL 5, is the fifth season of the IGN ProLeague.

Overview[edit]

IPL5 takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Cosmopolitan from November 29 through December 2, 2012.[1] In cooperation with GOMTV, IPL5 will also host the 2012 Global StarCraft II League Season 5 Code S semifinals and finals, as well as the 2012 GSL World Championship.[2]

Several qualifiers for this event were held, beginning in May 2012, in order to determine the 39 players who would join the IPL 4 winner, aLive, at the main event. The qualifiers were held on weekends, which led to some players missing the opportunity to qualify for IPL 5 due to conflicting tournament schedules.[Citation needed] To account for this, IPL announced that two extra rounds of midweek qualifiers would be held, from which a further 16 players were to earn places at the main event,[3] bringing the total number of qualified players for this event to 72.[1]

A detailed list of participants can be found here.

Qualifiers[edit]

New to this season, IPL held satellite tournaments that earned players spots at the live event in addition to regional qualifiers that earned players a spot at the live event as well as a free trip to the event.

Regionals[edit]

  • An amateur is defined as any player who has not earned more than $1,000 in live events.
  • Amateurs may also choose to play in their appropriate Regional if they so choose.

Additional[edit]
