General Information[edit]

The NoisE Amateur Starleague 2 (ASL2) was announced on 18nd August 2012 [1] and had a prize pool of $600, a substantial increase from the first season. The second season, again, features yellow rank players - with the addition of any qualified player from season one that wants to participate, regardless of rank.


Place Prize (USD)
Champion $400
Runner-up $150
Third $50
Total $600


For the first stage (qualification), each player will be divided into a division of 9 (or 10). Each division will have 5 tiers of 2 players and players in each tier play each other.

The player that wins their game moves up a tier and the player that loses moves down a tier. The player that wins in tier 1 stays in it. Likewise, the player in tier 5 that loses also stays where he is at. If there are 9 people in a division, the bottom tier players sits Round 1 (Bye) and then moves up when tier 4 loser moves down. This is repeated over 10 rounds (10 separate games per player) over the course of two days (5 games per day). The top 4 players from each division will move on to the group stage. The divisions were determined randomly and seeded randomly.

In the next (Group) stage, top 4 players from 6 divisions of the Up & Down stage together with the 6 wildcard players and 2 seeded players from the last season make 32 players of the Group stage. These players are divided into 8 groups of 4 players. Each group has two bottom finishing players (Tier 2 and Wildcard players) from the last stage that play a BO3 in Round 1 to advance to the Round 2 to play a second finisher (Tier 1 player) in a BO3. The winner of that match advances to Round 3 to play one of the top finishers (Tier 1 and seeded players) in a BO5 to advance to the Ro8.

Round of 8 and onwards is a single-elimination bracket with a 3rd place match. Every match is a Bo5, except the Finals, which is Bo7.
