General Information[edit]

The PGL Season 2(PGL2007星际争霸联赛第二赛季) was hosted by the PGL Committee in Beijing, China from 11th to 23rd September 2007. The tournament was one of the rare occasions when top level foreign players, Korean and Chinese professionals met. In addition, this tournament featured one of the largest prize pools for StarCraft Brood War outside of KeSPA organized tournaments. Most of the coverage was provided by the Danish multi gaming clan Meet Your Makers, that sent out most of the foreign players, while China's largest Brood War Fanpage WFBrood provided streams and VODs.

Besides Brood War other titles such as Warcraft III were part of PGL.

The System[edit]

The tournament was divided into four stages.

Stage I

  • The first was the team (aka group) phase. This determined the top two teams. After the team ranks are known, each team had an internal tournament. From the top two teams, two on each team advanced directly to Stage III and the bottom two players move to Stage II. From the bottom two teams, the two losing players from the internal tournament wwere eliminated. The two winning players advanced to Stage II.

Stage II

  • Eight players had to play this stage. A double-elimination tournament was held with the winner bracket and loser bracket finalists advanced into Stage III.

Stage III

  • Stage III was the knockout stage. A bracket was held with the losers continuing to play until 2 losers remain - those two gamers were knocked out.

Stage IV

  • Final stage of the tournament: Semi Finals and overall Finals and consolation Finals.

Prizes[edit]

¥70,000 CNY prize pool distributed as follows[1]:

Stage I[edit]

The clan wars were played with the All-Kill Format, the mode was a Best of Seven. The most interesting aspect of this stage was, that the players could determine the order of the matches, e.g. who to send out first. The mutual interest to finish as good as possible was in the best interest for everyone, as a top spot would minimize the probability to get eliminated before the pay out places.

The players could partially select their team's members in a group ceremony. Four players were nominated as team captains. These picked one of the remaining players in the first round of selections. The picked player then continued to add another of the eight remaining players in the second circle, which again could select the fourth players.
