2017 League Participation Results, Stats + Prize Winners!

Getting esports athletes and casual gamers to compete in what is commonly acknowledged as one of the hardest esports titles to play in competitively, can be a challenging task! Nevertheless, in 2017 we saw more tournaments, rewards, awareness and prestige built around the OSC World Rankings, and as a result, more players enter the fray of competitive/professional Starcraft events than ever before, and result in another record breaking year! The League saw a yearly participation increase of 22.5% on 2016! Many individual and regional participation records were broken/past (which can be viewed in the Leagues Hall of Fame)! 120 players won a tournament, 264 players directly won $’s from tournaments and competitions, while pleasingly more teams continue to offer support and incentivize their players to play and perform in OSC, outside of what we ourselves directly offer! Now that the game is free to play, we’re even more excited by what we can all work towards in 2018, and keep the sport moving upwards!
