Indeed, competitive StarCraft II continues to enjoy multiple events. Accordingly, in the coming week we have the 2022 AfreecaTV GSL Super Tournament 2. As a series of tournaments, it’s another opportunity to enjoy the highest level of competitive StarCraft II! – read on to learn How to Watch!
For those unaware, the ESL Pro Tour is the yearly competitive framework for StarCraft II at the highest level. Bearing this in mind, this upcoming event is one of multiple Super Tournaments.
Taking place from 28th November to 8th December, the event will be taking place offline in Seoul, South Korea. With $30,500 of prize on the line, here are 16 of the top players in the world:
In addition to the prize, there are multiple points up for grabs. Here are how the Pro Tour Points will be distributed:
- 1st – 255
- 2nd – 185
- 3-4th – 130
- 5-8th – 90
- 9-16th – 55
These points will prove essential to seed into the Major events next year.
With regards to the format, this event is rather straight forward.
To get here, the majority of the competition seeded to the competition through an open qualifier only open to South Korean citizens.
Otherwise, some of the top players in the world have also been invited.
Anyways, the format involves a single-elimination bracket, the matches being as follows:
- Round of 16 – BO5
- Quarterfinals – BO5
- Semifinals – BO5
- Finals – BO7
For those unaware, a single elimination bracket means that any loss will cause teams to be eliminated from the competition entirely. Indeed, this makes for some impressive stakes.
Round of 16
- Maru vs Classic
- ByuN vs Armani
- Creator vs Solar
- GuMiho vs SpeCial
- herO vs Bunny
- DRG vs Ryung
- Dark vs soO
- RagnaroK vs Cure
Bearing this in mind, we’ll be happy to crown our champion on the 8th December.

At the most recent event, the GSL Code S which also took place in South Korea, many of the attending competitors took their chances too. Here’s how they stacked up roughly a month ago:
- #1 – Maru
- #2 – RagnaroK
- #3-4 – GuMiho, herO
- #5 – DRG
- #6 – Cure
Bearing this in mind, Maru is definitely the favourites.
However, considering the nature of the event, we can’t wait to see whether the single elimination bracket could prove fatal for some of the favourites. Remember – South Korea has been home to the best SCII players in the world.
