OSL Qualifier - Oz is in!
The day began with over a hundred top Starcraft 2 progamers hoping to win their bracket and thus qualify for the first Starcraft 2 OSL ever. FnaticRaidCall had a player in 8 different brackets, and Oz has qualified! He won his bracket, defeating MVP.Keen in a Bracket Finals match. When the next OSL season begins, look for Oz to represent the Black and Orange well!
Though Oz was the only Fnatic player to win his bracket and qualify, he was not the only one to do well. aLive and DeParture were in their respective Bracket Finals as well, and both lost heartbreaking 1-2. Everyone expects that from aLive, one of the best and most well known players in the scene. But DeParture is from our Academy squad and his results were quite impressive. Look for future wins from the Fnatic players!
2012 OSL - Starcraft II
Since 2000, The Korean Gaming Channel has been running the OnGameNet StarLeague (or OSL) as a premier Starcraft Brood War league. After 13 years and 34 seasons, the OSL is making the transition to Starcraft II for the first time, with both KeSPA and Starcraft II progamers able to participate. The qualifiying brackets are immense, with 12 brackets that all have over 20 players. FnaticRaidCall is proud to announce that we have a huge number of players participating - Luvsic, DeParture, Ares, Rain, aLive, Oz, ByuL, and Moon.
All matches will be played on Monday July 2 :
Brackets A-F start 10:00-10:30 (KST)
Brackets G-L start 15:00-15:30 (KST)
Qualifying for the OSL
Every Korean pro with something to prove is here, trying to qualify for the most prestigious tournament to hit the Starcraft II scene. There are past champions like MMA, Symbol, Clide, MKP, Polt, viOLet, Bomber, HerO, Leenock, PuMa, PartinG, and TaeJa - to name just a few of the players looking to survive their brackets. There are also a few notable foreignors participating that have been training in Korea - TLO, NaNiwa, ThorZaIN. But everyone should be afraid of the line-up FnaticRC is bringing!

|OSL Qualifier Bracket L|
Only the winner of each bracket will advance to the OSL. Fortunately, no bracket has two FnaticRC players so each of our players could qualify.
In addition to this qualifying tournament, there will be a KeSPA specific qualifying tournament, and 4 players have already been seeded into the OSL based on GSL and foreign results - Mvp, NesTea, MC, and DongRaeGue.
None of our players will have an easy time qualifying, because this tournament brings the highest level of competition. But there's no reason the first Starcraft II season of the OSL couldn't have a few FnaticRaidCall players in it. Be sure to check back at Fnatic.com for more updates about their progress!
