Without a doubt, this venture is a glowing ray of light in the darkness for BroodWar gamers, and demonstrates once and for all that BroodWar is alive and well, and is going to remain so for some time into the future!
The International Cyber Cup is proud to host this prestigious event on the Abyss server, where our team of highly-dedicated volunteers will ensure that the event is fair, free from abusers, and fun for everyone involved. To be clear, though, iCCup's administration will not interfere with the tournament proceedings in any way, and the event will retain it's independence. iCCup's administration will respect the wishes and rulings of the sponsors and tournament administration staff.
The Kaal ISL2 is going to include a huge player pool — 108 players will picked out from the ladder stage to compete in an MSL-style survivor tournament to compete for the lucrative 1,500$US prize pool! The league will start June 30th, and run all the way into October, so there will be plenty of hot, hot action to watch out for!
The ladder stage runs through June 30th until July 31st. At the request of the Tournament organizers, all matches played from August 1st through the remainder of the tournament will be played on US West on Battle.net. To qualify through the ladder stage, simply join the ISL2 team:
...and start laddering! Remember, the higher rank you achieve with your ISL2 account, the better chance you will have at making it into the survivor round! Your ISL2 account MUST contain the ISL2 tag in front of the ID, for example, if I were to make one, it could be any of these:
ISL2-NinaZerg, [ISL2]NinaZerg, ISL2.NinaZerg, etc.
You can potentially find games in channel: Op ISL
