The popular Korea StarCraft League returns yet again with another installment. Back in 2018, it had two successful seasons, so the StarCraft: Remastered tournament will be here for another year.
It’s always important to reminisce about previous milestones accomplished. With that in mind, one has to look back at how Terran player Seunghyun “Last” Kim and Zerg player Mincheol “Soulkey” Kim took home the KSL trophy during Season 1 and Season 2. Naturally, fans are full of excitement, especially when it comes to finding out which of their favorite players will return to fight for the title of the third KSL champion.
This season of the Korea StarCraft League will take place in the new VSG Arena in the heart of Seoul, Korea. The venue is a multi-purpose esports cultural complex, with state-of-the-art audio and visual capabilities at the organizer’s disposal. Naturally, there will be plenty of facilities there to accommodate the needs of both fans and players and also to ensure an excellent competitive experience.
Preparations for the third season are already underway. The first step is the following – online registrations are scheduled to take place from March 8 to March 20. Online qualifiers will take place shortly thereafter, on March 23 and 24, followed by offline qualifiers on March 30. Consequently, these challenges will determine which players will make it to the official round-of-16 roster.
The opening match for the KSL Season 3 will start on April 18. Matches will be taking place every Thursday and Friday following the opening match. The 16 finalists will be competing for a prize pool amounting to KRW 80 million (slightly more than $70,000).
