The OSC (Online Sports Championships) StarCraft II League is an online global league comprised of 500+ tournaments run over the year (season). The OSC World Rankings represent the data and results from all those tournaments (along with other bonuses and competitions), and are updated regularly throughout the year for players, teams and fans to follow.

At the end of the yearly season, the top 40 Ranked OSC Elite Rewards Club Members from the World Rankings, and the next top 8 Ranked OSC Elite Rewards Club Members from each Challenger Region (Europe, Americas, Korea and Asia) are invited to play in the revered OSC Championship, where we determine our yearly champion! Past champions and record holders can be viewed in the OSC Hall of Fame.

The annual Championship format rewards players who finish highly in the World Rankings (Top 20 seeded directly into the Championship Bracket), as they have shown a combination of results and regular participation throughout the year. There is also a pathway for those less active to qualify, as well as guaranteed regional representation through the 4 Challenger Leagues, all starting earlier in the Championship format.

History[edit]

The league first started on the 16th December 2012, and was originally titled SCS (SEA Championship Series). It’s goal was to unite online SEA tournaments together to improve seeding, regulations, participation and create new opportunities for the players in the target region. A player ranking system (OSC Points) was developed to increase competition and give players something extra to aim for other than cash prizes when participating in partnered tournaments. These core value of working together, rewarding players and providing incentives, has seen the OSC league post impressive annual growth every season since its inception! We have since expanded our focus to include the Americas and China. Many of our events are open to everyone worldwide, so our European and Korean friends have access and pathways to participate.

On the 20th August 2017, OSC has re-branded to Online Sports Championships.[1]

We aim to help support YOU play the game we all love! GLHF.

Player Representatives[edit]

In 2016 the OSC league created Regional Player Representatives to communicate with players of their regions, bring any concerns/suggestions back to the OSC team, and advocate for their region in discussions/future planning. This structure also serves to reduce the work load of OSC Management who spend a lot of time running events, overseeing the league, overseeing payments, and maintaining the World Rankings database and results. Please feel to contact those applicable to you and have your thoughts heard!
