Global StarCraft II League Format and Prizes

2019 Global StarCraft II League Code S will also be played in a dual format during the round of 32 and round of 16 group stages. The quarterfinals will require up to five games to decide the winners, while the semifinals and the finals will be played in a best-of-seven series. The semifinalists will also be seeded in the next Code S season, so the stakes are high. Those who have participated in the 2018 tour, as well as the fans and punters who have watched the event will notice that the format has remained unchanged.

There will be six distinct stages of 2019’s tour, with the GSL Season 1 starting on February 2 and concluding on April 3. The second and third seasons begin in late April and early July, while the GSL vs. The World is scheduled between August 1 and August 4. Two Super Tournaments are also scheduled in mid-April and late September, with similar prizes to those offered last year. Overall, the GSL events will dish out a combined ₩680,000,000 KRW, so players will be competing for more than half $1 million.

Dark and Keen are Big Favourites on Saturday

Dark plays the opening match of the new season on February 2 and he is credited with the first chance to defeat Trust. This looks like such a lopsided series that ArcaneBet only offers odds of 3/20 on Dark to prevail, while his opponent is priced at 4/1. In the second match of the day, KeeN will have a slightly more difficult mission against Dear, as reflected by the odds offered by Rivalry. If KeeN prevails, those who have wagered on his victory will be paid at odds of 9/20, while an upset caused by the underdog will pay at 3/2. Since these are opening matches, it’s likely that the odds won’t change much before kickoff.

The Global StarCraft II League matches will be broadcasted in real-time on Twitch, so players can watch them live.
