Bombastic StarLeague 12

Bombastic People, here we meet again, welcome!

First of all, we would like to thank eSport.Fund for stepping in and becoming BSL Sponsor yet again. They are truly amazing sponsors, whose main goal is to see the growth of StarCraft. They have supported BSL since Season 8, as well as plenty other SC:R tournaments like RCG. We can’t imagine how SC:R would look like today without their involvement. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you <3

Thanks to support of eSport.Fund, as well as our amazing community donations (Special thanks to Purepat and Crvt) and our great BSL Patreons (Special thanks to STRFKR, StRyKeR and GraiL), we are able to come back with a huge $6.500 prize pool! $5000 for the BSL12 ProLeague, $1000 for other tournaments and +$500 in BSL merch for all the leagues and tours. This season we also partnered with great LatAm supporter Mr. Terran Malo - some of you might not realize, but StarCraft community is tremendous in LatAm countries, and Mr. Terran Malo is sponsoring plenty of events for them, let’s all appreciate his support towards BSL!

Thanks to your support we will come back with $6500 prizes, accordingly:
1. BSL12 ProLeague ($5000 + BSL merch);
2. BSL12 GosuLeague ($300 + BSL merch);
3. BSL12 HasuLeague ($100 + BSL merch + coaching);
4. BSL12 ChoboLeague (BSL merch + coaching);
5. BSL12 Ladder Tournaments:
a) 3x open tours(300$ + BSL merch + ProLeage seed(!));
b) 2x chobo tours (SC:R copy or BSL merch);
c) 2x 2v2 tournaments ($300).

That's the perfect moment for all of you to go and thank our great sponsors!
Enough of this, let’s go and play some STARCRAFT.

Tournament rules

1. Everyone must join the BSL Official Discord channel.

2. The tournament is residency locked
The goal of the Bombastic StarLeague is to focus on the development of players outside of Korea. Therefore, only players that are living outside of South Korea can participate in this tournament.

3. Racepicking
Upon confirming their participation, players need to declare race and matchups they play for the entire season.

4. Regular match rules
Players must be online and available on Battle.net channel Op BSL (Europe) 15 minutes before their scheduled match. Secondary channel of communication is BSL Discord server.
15 minutes after scheduled time, if one of the players not responding, his opponent may claim a technical win for one game.
15 minutes after that he can claim a win for the whole series.

5. Playing matches before the schedule
Every match prior to the Elimination Stage can be played ahead of schedule if both players and admins agree.
Contact your opponent and set up the date to play. We strongly suggest using BSL Discord for this so admins can keep track of things.
On the selected day, play your match. Apply the same rules as for a regular match - use Op BSL and Discord to communicate.
If both players were unable to play on their selected date/time or weren't able to set one up, match should be played as it was scheduled.
It is not allowed to livestream your games or announce the result if you are playing your match earlier.
Winner of the match must upload the replays to the admins.

6. Latency
Default Turn Rate setting is DTR. If both players agree, Turn Rate setting can be changed.

7. Disconnects
If one of the players gets disconnected from the game before the 90-seconds mark, the game must be replayed. If one of the players had an advantage after the 90-seconds, the decision is up to the admin.

8. Casting the game
Everyone should allow ZZZero or any other responsible person to join the game for broadcast.

9. Unsportsmanlike conduct
Any menace, insults, toxicity, bad manner, racism, homofobic, sexism and any kind of behavior which will be treated as offensive as well as unsportsmanlike conduct will be punished in BSL. If no mitigating circumstances are found, the penalty is the BAN from the BSL season.

10. Prize distribution
Winners of cash prizes are required to contact the organizer to agree on the desired form of payment of the prize. Contact should be via Discord. The cost of sending funds and commissions are covered by the recipient.
