Crafting Stars Series

The Dutch StarCraft League welcomes you to the Crafting Stars Series! We’re hosting a two-tiered Legacy of the Void tournament every two weeks. That’s right: plenty of friendly competition to hone your skills.

These are the basics:

  • Two separate brackets: one for Bronze-to-Platinum players, and one for Diamond-to-Grandmaster.
  • Every two weeks on Monday, starting at 19h.
  • Only Dutch-speaking players allowed in the tournament.
  • Participation is free.
  • Top-8 each season qualifies for the CSS Finals.


Our aim for the series is to create a recurring fun event for the Dutch StarCraft community, in which players from all leagues can be involved. We’ll be streaming games from the series on (commentary in English), so tune in to see the new Dutch stars of StarCraft being crafted!

And what’s more: we’ll be keeping score! Every time you play in the Crafting Stars Series you earn points for the Crafting Stars Series Ranking. Points can be earned both in the Bronze-to-Platinum tier and the Diamond-to-Grandmaster tier (the higher tier rewards more points). The ranking is split over different seasons, each spanning several editions of the CSS. The top-8 players from each season will be invited to the CSS Finals in August. The CSS Finals are a double-elimination tournament, in which the top-4 players earn a seed for this year’s DSCL Open!
