Chronology

Intro[edit]

In 2003 the Brood War Clan League hosted a tournament series in cooperation with BroodWar.de's BW4Ever tournament portal: the King of Kings series.

These were individual tours, which only players from BWCL clans could enter. Every team had the option to send a number of players into the competition, depending on their placement in the divisions.

Last edition was won by Germany HoRRoRToSS.

Format[edit]

  • The last KoK champion is invited.
  • The clan season’s winner gets to nominate 3 players.
  • Every division A clan gets to nominate 2 players.
  • Every other clan gets one spot. We encourage clans to host internal tournaments to determine who might enter. However, hosting internal tournaments are optional, the nomination procedure is up to the clans.
  • Seeds higher/lower divs
  • Clans are free to nominate substitutions in case a player can not participate.
  • Free spots will given randomly to registered players with the help of a lottery system or randomly if time is running short.
  • The tournament will feature a Double Elimination grid and is expanded on several week days between the seasons. It will not be played within one night to increase anticipation and encourage preparations for the opponents.
  • WinBracket Bo3, LosBracket Bo1. Overall finale is Bo5 with winner’s advantage (1-0 start).
