Overview[edit]

The second Torenhire Starleague, also known as the ThSL, is the second invitational tournament organized by the TL.net user Torenhire. The tournament participants were made up of a number of forum veterans with variances in skill that ranged from beginner to former progamer in caliber. The second tournament featured a new format with the intent of awarding seeds to those who advance far enough for future tournaments.

With the TeamLiquid Legacy Starleague occupying a majority of the previous production team's time, users Grobyc, SirJolt, and Shiroiusagi took up the streaming and content production of ThSL II.

The new Torenhire Starleague format is very similar to the old style OSL format, however the "PCBang Starleague" has been replaced by an invite system.

  • The players will take players out of the pool and into their group in a predetermined order. A1 picks, B1, C1, D1, D2, C2, B2, A2, A3, B3, C3, D3. Four groups of four players each.
