The province of Quebec in Canada has had a long love history with Starcraft. It all started with the OSL in Korea back in 2000, which was won by none other than Guillaume Patry, a Quebecer. Since then, Quebec has hosted 3 WCS Circuit events and is home to some of NA’s top GMs, most notably Semper, Jig, Sottorks and Disk. As Tychus would say, “It’s about time” we organized ourselves an offline Starcraft II tournament with commentary and a decent prize pool. So, on October 26th, we officially founded the QSL (Quebec Starcraft League) at Meltdown Montreal. We announced a prize pool, a commentator and, to everyone’s surprise, an actual trophy! Meltdown already had bi-monthly Starcraft II events, but they were more casual than anything else. We’ve decided to take these dedicated Starcraft evenings and take them to a whole other level. When looking for commentators, we just had to turn to Gosu_PvP. PvP is a local Montreal citizen and, from all his hard work, became a very relevant streamer in the Starcraft community. He organized and casted his own tournament known as the Gosu_PvP Cup, which had some unbelievable names such as: Gumiho, Neeb, Special, Zest and the list goes on! As we come closer the tournament’s debut, we’ve gotten hold of more and more sponsors, and as of now the QSL is looking at a prize pool of 600$ minimally.
Get ready for some Starcraft II action on Saturday November 24th, from 6:00 to 11:00 PM (this is a single evening event). If you can’t make it to the Meltdown itself, make sure to tune-in to Gosu_PVP’s stream! https://www.twitch.tv/gosu_pvp
For anyone interested in participating, but isn’t locally from Montreal, don’t worry, we can provide free lodging for the night: message me directly on Facebook (Alexandre Savard, host of the page) for more information.
