Chronology


IGN ProLeague Season 5, also known as IPL 5, is the fifth season of the IGN ProLeague.

IPL5 takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Cosmopolitan from November 29 through December 2, 2012.[1] In cooperation with GOMTV, IPL5 will also host the 2012 Global StarCraft II League Season 5 Code S semifinals and finals, as well as the 2012 GSL World Championship.[2]

Several qualifiers for this event were held, beginning in May 2012, in order to determine the 39 players who would join the IPL 4 winner, aLive, at the main event. The qualifiers were held on weekends, which led to some players missing the opportunity to qualify for IPL 5 due to conflicting tournament schedules.[Citation needed] To account for this, IPL announced that two extra rounds of midweek qualifiers would be held, from which a further 16 players were to earn places at the main event,[3] bringing the total number of qualified players for this event to 72.[1]

A detailed list of participants can be found here.
