The Kappa StarLeague (KSL) is an online showmatch series that promotes a stress-free tournament environment, designed to give players a way to have some extra fun with StarCraft II while making a little money on the side.
The KSL was founded in 2014 by Nathanias, with the intention of filling time between tournaments and increasing tournament participation for viewers as well.
- A best-of-seven between the two players. At the start of the KSL, each player off-raced with the usual race of his opponent. Later on, matches were played with usual race, on Starbow maps.
- Winning player receives $100, and loser gets $25. Usually, a new player is invited the next week to attempt to dethrone the previous winning player.
