Bombastic StarLeague 7

Welcome everyone!

The long-awaited seventh installment of the Bombastic StarLeague (BSL) kicks off on the 15th of August 2019! We are proud to announce we have partnered with Blizzard Entertainment to bring you not one, but four fully-fledged, action-packed seasons of your favourite StarCraft: Remastered tournament outside of South Korea. Bombastic StarLeague Season 7 - as well as seasons 8 and 9 - will feature a USD $1,000 prize purse each, culminating in a USD $3,000 grand finale at Bombastic StarLeague Season 10.

The BSL is the brainchild of a hard-working crew dedicated to making the largest StarCraft:Remastered tournament circuit outside of Korea. We’d like to thank the community for the support we’ve received over the past few seasons and we hope the fruits of our labour will once again live up to everyone’s expectations.

Our goal is to create a healthy competitive environment for players outside of South Korea. The BSL is split into three separate skill-based divisions, catering to the needs of both experienced players and newcomers to the scene alike. The three levels of competition are the BSL ChoboLeague, BSL GosuLeague, and BSL ProLeague.

Key information

Prize pool rundown:

Seasons 7 through 9 will employ the same format as BSL6, with a slight change to the Ro24 of ProLeague. This round will now be played out in a Bo1 format.
The Ladder Stage will be considerably shorter than in previous seasons, so best queue up as soon as you can and start climbing the ranks!
In addition to cash rewards (and bragging rights, of course), BSL seasons 7, 8, and 9 will award participants Bombastic Points, which will later be used to determine 20 of the 32 players seeded into BSL10.

How do I sign up?

  1. Create a new account using the BSL7- tag on any gateway BSL7-YourNickName, e.g.: BSL7-Hatchet, BSL7-HaN, BSL7-ZZZero, ...
  2. Head over to: https://bombasticstarleague.com/
  3. Register on the site and add your in-game account to the rankings
  4. Launch StarCraft: Remastered and start laddering! The Ladder Stage commences on August 15 and closes on September 07 at 23:59 CET

How do I qualify for each division?

The top 20 players from the Ladder Stage get seeded directly into BSL7 ProLeague
Players ranked #21 to #53 from the Ladder Stage get seeded into BSL7 GosuLeague
All remaining Ladder Stage participants who completed at least 20 ladder games get seeded into BSL7 ChoboLeague

Continue improving your BSL ladder placement even after qualifying - the player with the higher ladder placement will be given priority during map vetoes.

Points Info

BSL10

The three upcoming seasons of the Bombastic StarLeague - seasons 7, 8 and 9 - will feed into a much larger grand finale tour of BSL10. While this tournament will employ a similar structure to previous seasons, the ProLeague division of BSL10 will undergo slight structural changes.

The Champions of BSL7, BSL8, and BSL9 will all be receiving a direct seed into the BSL10 ProLeague Round of 32. The remaining spots will be distributed among the top performers of the league: 20 spots will be determined via BSL Points ranking, 8 spots will be rewarded as a result of the BSL10 ladder stage, and a final 16-man last-chance tournament for ladder players ranked 9th through 24th will determine the final spot.

Note that we are still finalising all the details regarding BSL10 GosuLeague and BSL10 ChoboLeague. Keep an eye out for further announcements.
