Post-KeSPA Players List

From Liquipedia StarCraft Brood War Wiki

Players Portal: Post-KeSPA Players List

The long illustrious history of StarCraft, both past and present, has largely been built on the shoulders of its players. This Players Portal serve to provide a catalog of all the players who have a presence on Liquipedia and a glimpse of their careers. A number of these players have emerged as figures of admiration and emulation, competing with passion and flair as they achieved success while entertaining the viewing audience, and are thus presented in more detail below.

Although StarCraft's most developed player base resides in South Korea, both non-Korean or "foreign" players are represented at Liquipedia. While many such foreign players are presented in this Players section, their presence is often overshadowed by the large number of South Korean competitors. Fundamentally, this reflects the dominance of the competitive international landscape by South Korean players, including their eleven consecutive titles at the most prominent international tournament, the World Cyber Games, which were won in commanding fashion. Correspondingly, interest in the game was eagerly encouraged by Korean entities, with wide-spread coverage and availability of StarCraft-related information, including at least two Korean television stations dedicated to StarCraft and e-Sports. Nonetheless, the number of talented South Korean players does not diminish the non-Korean presence, as many strong participants from across Europe, Asia, and the Americas competed in a variety of lucrative local and international tournaments. With many players speaking English, language was less of a barrier, enabling many of these competitors to interact with and foster various vibrant online communities. As such, although the number of Korean players cataloged in these pages are large, the international landscape was alive and well, and readers are invited to explore more about these non-Korean competitors here.

For our readers, if a noteworthy participant is absent or insufficiently documented, do consider authoring or contributing to making the site more comprehensive. For help and hints about how to complete player biographies, please see the biography resources guide.

Each player's ID, name, race, nationality, age, and team are sourced from the individual's Liquipedia player page. The Elo rating is a dynamic measure of a player's performance or ability against other players, where the peak Elo value denotes the maximum value reached over the player's career while the date reached marks when the player was most dominant. The achievements column uses the medals icon to mark the presence (but not quantity) of significant tournament titles on the player's Liquipedia page. Each player's achievement history can further be explored at the individual player's TLPD (KeSPA), TLPD (post-KeSPA), or TLPD (international) profiles. The currently streaming column indicates the player's Afreeca (online streaming) link.
