Star Series: the start of XII season


Starladder announces the beginning of the twelfth season of Star Series. The teams of all over the world will fight for the prize pool (the beginning sum is 80 000$). As it was before, the battles will be held in Europe, China, America and South-East Asia. The best teams of each region will receive the invites for participation in LAN-final.


As concerns the novelties, the organizers have completely changed the system of the championship. Instead of conducting one group stage (with 16 teams in one group fighting against each other), there will be 4 groups now. The meetings will be held in bo3 format, which will make games even more exciting and the results fairer. Only 2 teams of each group will get to the second stage, so the participants will have to do their best in the very beginning.

Blind lot put UkraineNatus Vincere in one group along with Sweden Basically UnknownRussian FederationTeam Empire and Germany GOOMBA Gaming. The matches will be held 14-15 March, so you'd better plan your schedule accordingly on those days, so that you don't miss the matches of your favorite team. Find the exact time of the matches in the table below.


During the whole month fans can watch the highest level matches, which are brought to them by the most popular studios in the world:
