As mentioned, the re-brand also allows us to expand into other sports, the first of which will be Starcraft Remastered! To begin with, we will be running 2 weekly cups and an ongoing mini league, rankings, and championship in the same setup as SC2 for the next 6 months. We believe SCR offers a unique opportunity to bring in new fans to the genre, bring back some past BW fans, and create a closer relationship between the sports within our leagues and community. After the season 1 finals, we will review how the sport is going, how well it is being received by our community, and any changes that may need to be made as a result. But for now, you’ve asked for a OSC SCR League, and here it is (To commence from tomorrow, August 21st)! We will look to work with and support any other SCR events to build a league akin to what we have with SC2, and OSC’s role in that sports competitive ecosystem. We start with SCR, but have plans to enter other sports in the future!
