Girls of Starcraft (GoSc) was created on June 5th, 2011. It was created by two friends who had a vision to make a more friendly environment for ladies in the community. While time has changed many things, it has never changed the original vision of GoSc. One of the primary goals of GoSc (Girls of Starcraft) is to help encourage a friendly and competitive environment for the females coming into the Starcraft competitive scene. The group has grown so large that it now consists of 446 members. Among those members are fans, commentators, event organizers, players, mothers, sisters, models and over all just fun gamers! GoSc
This is a three day event to celebrate the Girls of Starcraft 1st Year Anniversary.
June 29th: This is the first day of the event. On this day we will be having a Community Tournament that is open to anyone in the community (With access to the NA Server) - This means anyone (with NA Server Access) can play in this tournament; Regardless of gender or ladder ranking. This Community Tournament is open to the Starcraft Community (Not just the GoSc Community). We will accept up to 512 players into this tournament. 1st-3rd + 2 additional players will receive prizes. This tournament will start/be streamed at 5 pm EST.
June 30th: This is the second day of the event. On this day we will be having a Girls Only Tournament. Once again this tournament is open to ladies only who have access to the NA server. At this moment we are accepting up to 32 ladies for this tournament. However if there is a lot of sign ups for this tournament, we change the amount allowed in. At the absolute max, we will only accept up to 512 players. 1st-3rd + 2 additional players will receive prizes. This tournament will start/be streamed at 2 pm EST.
July 1st: This is the final day of the GoSc 1st Year Anniversary Event. On this day we will be holding a show match.

Sorry ~ I wish we could have it open on the other servers but we just don't have the ability to do that at this moment. Maybe in the future it is something we can do. I hope you will at least tune in and support the event!
