The Dutch StarCraft League is back! This year's edition focuses 100% on the Dutch(-speaking) player base, hence the rename from 'DSCL Open' to 'DSCL Nationals'. Don't worry though: all content and streams will continue to be produced in English for the 'foreign' audience.
The DSCL Nationals will take place on December 1st at the Esports Game Arena in Alphen aan den Rijn (free entrance). Twelve of the best Dutch players will be there to fight for the first DSCL Nationals trophy. uThermal and Harstem will be invited, while the other 10 players will have to earn their spot through the DSCL Nationals ranking.
From September through November 9 tournaments will be awarding DSCL Natioanls ranking points to players. These tournaments include the ThermyCup at The Reality, multiple cups at the Esports Game Arena, online qualifiers and a tournament at the new Dutch LAN 'Tweakers Gaming Live'. There's even a qualifier in Antwerp at Outpost for the Flemish players!
For the prize pool we're relying on community support, and a Matcherino campaign has been launched. Please consider supporting the Dutch / Benelux StarCraft scene by donating and/or purchasing some merch!
