Following translation is freely written and most phrases are not translated as perfect idioms. Please forgive me to not have the will to look up all the slangs required to give a soul to the communist propaganda I produced. Now for the news itself.
Comrades and Partisans,
A spectre is haunting the world, the spectre of supposedly dead Brood War. All the powers of the new eSports have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Twitch and Reddit, the old and hipsters, American evildoers and degenerated people from the mountains.
Where is the party in opposition that has not been decried as elitist by its opponents in power? Where is the opposition that has not hurled back the branding reproach of heresy, against the more advanced opposition parties, as well as against its reactionary adversaries?
To this end, secret counsels (Han, Hatchet, ZZZero.o) of various nationalities have assembled in Discord and sketched the following manifesto.
Proletarians, the revolution has begun.
About the Revolutionary
Since 2010 few amibitious Projects existed outside of Korea. There were little to no sponsors, player numbers dwindled, even the infusion of SC:R wasn’t as successful as hope would have it. But a true fan couldn’t be worried by this.
Dawid “ZZZero” Pazdzior for instance. In the past days he was a solid member of the Polish national team, today he’s become the center of the international Brood War community. Five years ago he institutionalized the “Bombastic StarLeague” and breathed life into a project, copying the old TSL from 2008. Back then, the event was for Polish people only. Today it’s different.
The amiable Polishman developed his little pet project into an entire series with satellites. There were continental matches, clan wars, individual series and race wars. Without much help he united more people in his stream and drew more people into playing ladder – achieving as much popularity as was common in the past. The climax of his endless work was the finals of the BSL 4, which hundreds of people saw, had the elite playing and more than a $1000 as prizes.
Not too bad for a 27 year old. But more was to be done, visions were left.
Bombastic Starleague is ZZZero’s power plus the electrification of the whole world.
To keep it short: The BSL 5 begun last week after an epic announcement and already caused a flood of people to stream and play. Besides Zero a manyfold of the best players broadcasted their games and the new ladder season should be infused with tons upon tons of games.
Not only that, Blizzard, the almighty one, officially sponsors the event – with money, not only gratitude. There’s already ads in the launcher for the ongoing season. Additionally, more editions of the league are already being prepared. Not bad at all.
The current season started at 2nd oct. with a ladder phase, which will end on 3rd nov. The twenty best players will advance into the BSL main stage, the places 21- 84 will qualify for the Chobo League, some sort of little sister of the main event (which DA]KuH won last time! Hooray!)
The twenty of the best will be joined by the four best players of last season’s Chobo League: The winner KuH, the hacker Zarrr, the Swede Splax and some American called Kingdom.
Afterwards the Top24 have to endure two more grop stages. The first one is for the Top24, afterwards the Top16 are determined. In this second group the winner of last season Dadyn, Koget, eOn and Dewalt will be seeded.
Only after this two group stages the surviving eight will be placed into a K.O.-grid.
Complicated, but very entertaining.
The German Komsomol
As of now a few of our boys are competing with the best, at least one you all know:
The panzer general himself, GoOdy, is in the top ranks of the ladder. He showed his face a few times during BWCL already, but couldn’t do much more than giving us a handful of entertaining games. However, he’s Goody, and you gotta like GoOdy.
Also, Bakuryu, Zerg, Top 16 WCG Germany 2010, competes. Mr. Mustache trains incredibly hard and for sure has the potential to enter high ranks towards the end of the ladder. We’ll be cheering him on!
Finally I also count on Cryoc, the Terran hero. As post doc he’ll have some smart tricks prepared and will be ready to pull one out of his sleeve to smash some Zerg. One race per player, fair deal (I don’t know what I want to say with that but it made sense at that point)
Sadly, I can’t write nearly as much as I want to. My brain is fried and I’m short on time. For full info – sign up, rules and everything else – please visit Zero’s site: https://bombasticstarleague.com/
All that’s left to say: Proletarians of the world, unite!
