Fully Amateur Starcraft 2 League

Posts: 4
I am very happy to announce a full amateur league for Starcraft 2: HotS!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=CTtA01uEDLU

This post serves to announce the League itself. More details will come. Feel free to ask any questions, they will all be answered!

The Discover Your Energy StarLeague aims to create a sustainable tournament focusing on developing high-level Amateurs, providing opportunity and exposure for up-and-comers, while allowing for lower-level players to compete for prizes with players of equal skill level!

Players signing up will be sorted into divisions according to their Starcraft 2 League, ensuring that they are playing against others of similar skill level. There will be prizing for the winner of every Division.

Players playing in the highest League (those ranked Masters with over 1,000 points or Grandmaster) will be the focal point of this tournament. The winner of the tournament will receive resources to play professionally for ~3 months, whereupon he will be provided with an opportunity to prove his merit by competing in an appropriate tournament (such as DreamHack Open, GSL Code A Qualifiers, or the like).

Players of lower Leagues will receive various prizes, such as coaching or gaming gear.

Details:

The first League will start by May First.
A detailed format will be released shortly, but players will be expected to play 1 bo3 series per week for about 2 months.

This League is open to any player, of any league, so long as they are Amateur. An Amateur player is one that is not salaried/have their needs covered in exchange for playing Starcraft 2.

Players may sign up by posting below, PMing me, or at the Challonge page http://challonge.com/tournaments/signup/zkLky8mcJm

The next few weeks will be used to release more solid details, such as a streaming schedule and a fully explained format.

If an entire team/organization signs up, then they will receive a video spotlight/interview

This is an awesome idea! I've always wanted to start a league but the company I was with was focused on CoD and not SC, unfortunately (though they are doing quite well in CoD now haha).

I am too new to compete in it, but I can't wait to see this up and running!

I like this idea. I signed up for the website, but could not sign up for the league, because it had the maximum of 256 players, it said.

So once we're in this, then what do we do?

I'd like to participate if it's still open.
