Bombastic StarLeague 13

Hey guys!

Exactly 126 days ago TerrOr joined trutaCz, Dewalt, Dandy, eOnzErG and Bonyth on the Bombastic StarLeague hall of fame list. BSL12 Finals were one of the most entertaining finals we ever had - not only because we had amazing games with a full bo7 played, but also because someone defeated Bonyth - a foreigner superman who is known as a PvT bonjwa - he was dethroned by TerrOr - the Terran master. Did TerrOr begin a new era of Terran being the leading race? Maybe he motivated other players who have practiced hard during the last couple of months? Let’s find out, because BSL Season 13 STARTS NOW.

Few words about sponsors

eSport.Fund is becoming a Sponsor of BSL Season 13. They are also sponsoring Russian Cyber Games, Jeez Weekly and plenty of other SC:R events. Thanks to them, we were able to double the prize pool of BSL Season 8 and 9, and reach $5000+ during BSL Season 10, 11 and 12. We are happy to welcome eSport.Fund as a Sponsor of BSL Season 13!

BSL Season 13 wouldn’t be possible without the support of our amazing community donations (Special thanks to Purepat and Crvt) and our great BSL Patreons (Special thanks to STRFKR, StRyKeR and GraiL).

Thanks to your support we will come back with ~$6500 in prizes, $5500 for ProLeague, $700 for other tournaments and +$300 in BSL Merch accordingly:
BSL13 Proleague ($5500)
BSL13 GosuLeague ($100 + Merch)
BSL13 HasuLeague (BSL merch)
BSL13 ChoboLeague (BSL merch)
Other tournaments ($600 + BSL merch + 3x ProLeague seeds)

That's the perfect moment for all of you to go and thank our great sponsors, supporters and donors!
