Overview[edit]

The 1998 StarCraft: Brood War Beta Tournament started on November 14th, 1998 and consisted of the 16 top-ranked players on the official ladder as of midnight November 11th.[1][2] One replacement was made due to a player not showing up to the event. The tournament was one of the earliest StarCraft tournaments recorded and officially held by Blizzard.

All the matches in the ladder stage of the tournament were played as a Bo3 while the grand finals was a Bo7.

It is also interesting to note that the tournament was played using the game speed "Fast".
