How it will work?

Lottery draw using random.org. Drawing prizes 1st-15th, randomized for each prize, one at a time. If you win (eg 3rd), your name will be removed from the rest of the draw before continuing onto the next prize draw (eg 4th) *Unless you have multiple entries through tournament activity/victory bonuses or an OSC Elite Club Membership, in which case only 1 entry will be removed. Draw will be done at the conclusion of the Season 7/2019 SC2 Championship.

Any contribution less than the entry ticket price is certainly appreciated, but will not provide a ticket. The contribution will be counted as a donation towards the prizepool pot.

Any contribution more than the entry price is certainly appreciated, but does not enable you to additional tickets. Only one paid ticket per person. Any extra contribution will be counted as a donation towards the prizepool pot.


OSC reserves the right to remove any participants ticket from the draw if they are found to have broken league rules.

Tickets will be available for purchase up until the draw is done during the Season 7/2019 SC2 Championship Bracket (January 2020)

2018 League Participation Results + Stats!

Getting esports athletes and casual gamers to compete in what is commonly acknowledged as one of the hardest esports titles to play competitively, can be a challenging task! Nevertheless, in 2018 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, culminating in another record breaking year! A credit to the collective effort of all OSC League Partners, staff, players, supporters and the community at large!

A quick look at some 2018 numbers:

  • The League saw a yearly participation increase of 24.6% on 2017!

  • Number of tournaments increased 16.9% on 2017!

  • 141 individual players won a tournament!

  • 315* players directly won $’s from tournaments and competitions!

  • 110* OSC $ Bounties were claimed, for a total of $4005!

And many individual and regional records were broken/past (which can be viewed in the Leagues Hall of Fame)!

*Still some prizes still to be calculated
