Founded in 2001, StarLadder has been hosting proprietary esports tournaments StarSeries and Invitational in Dota2, CS:GO and HearthStone as well as handling event organization, studio and video production, live streaming for global audiences and supporting its online platform for amateur, semi-pro and professional tournaments.
January 2016, StarLadder rebranded StarLadder StarSeries into a new series: StarLadder i-League (SLi), cooperating with the Chinese event organizer ImbaTV. This new series includes two types of tournaments: the "StarSeries" and the "Invitational".
From SLi Invitational Season 5, the prefix of the series "StarLadder i-League" has been renamed StarLadder ImbaTV.
