Prize Pool[edit]

Map Pool[edit]

This GSTL used the same map pool as the previous GSTL, but was changed mid-season:

Crevasse and Xel'Naga Caverns were replaced with Antiga Shipyard and Daybreak[1] between GSL July and GSL August, thus the GSTL Season 1 always used the same map pool as the concurrently running GSL.

* GomTV still shows the names "Terminus RE" and "Tal'Darim Altar" in their broadcasts, while Terminus SE and Tal'Darim Altar LE are played.

Participating Teams[edit]


Casting will be split 50/50 between 2 casting teams:


  • "Wolf" Schröder
  • and guest casters:
  • Daniel "Unstable" Siddel
  • Trevor "TorcH" Housten
  • Erik "DoA" Lonnquist
  • Noah "Moletrap" Kalb
