Overview[edit]

The 1999 PGL Season 4 was held from December 22, 1998 through May 22, 1999.[1][2] The AMD Professional Gamers League had operated three previous seasons, where Starcraft was included during 1998 PGL Season 3. The PGL was a league operated by Gamers Extreme at Gamers.com[3]

The tournament was one of the earliest Starcraft tournaments recorded and officially held by Blizzard and among the largest prize pool of its time.

Tournament Information[edit]

All the matches in the tournament were played with the best of one format. The top 128 players were selected from online play during December 22-January 17, 1999. The top 128 played in the "regular season" from February 5-March 12, 1999 before the top eight played in the offline championships May 21-22, 1999.[4][5] The regular season brackets were played single-elimination online, while the final eight played in a double-elimination championship bracket at XS New York, a cyber cafe, in New York, New York, USA.[6][7]

Prize Pool[edit]

$30,500 cash was awarded among the top placing players according to the following distribution:[8][9]

In addition to the above, the 17th through 32nd top finishers earned $100 cash prizes. The top finishers also received a variety of computer hardware and other prizes.
