In addition to the full player list, The Pylon Show revealed that this year's first HomeStory Cup will feature a new format, a returning sc2 personality as well as a returning StarCraft legend.
This HSC will feature 4 groups with 8 players each, who will battle each other in the round robin format. The final 16 players will compete in a double elimination bracket. To cover all the action, MrBitter will be joining the usual suspects and commentate sc2 for the first time in years!
Much like MMA at the last HSC, FanTaSy will also be celebrating his return to sc2 in Krefeld, Germany.

Survival Guide with an explanation from NarutO:
Main Stream obviously means casted by the crew on the couch.
Mainstream joined by casters means the game will most likely be not casted but jumped into for highlights/fights or something amazing happening. It is the series that will be went into in case the main-match doesn't last as long.
B-Stream: this match will be fully covered on twitch.tv/TaKeTV2
Offstream: This match is not covered by taketv but can be covered due to community. They have free choice of games so there is no guarantee meaning it could be non-streamed.
We will try to play one round, finish it, start the next round unless schedule or crazy games prevent this. We will recap after each 2nd round.
