Chronology

Overview[edit]

The 2004 Gillette OSL was held from April through July 2004. It was the first time July played in an OnGameNet Starleague (OSL), and by winning it he thus became a Royal Roader. The 2004 Gillette was also the first time a Zerg player took the OSL title, despite it being the eighth time a Zerg had made it to the finals.

The OSL was also notable in that during the third game between iloveoov and Zeus, OnGameNet's systems failed, thus causing Zeus to drop from the game. Despite iloveoov being in a significant lead in the game at the time, the match had to be replayed due to the rules of the time. iloveoov won the rematch and thus advanced to the semi-finals.[1][2]
