The AfreecaTV StarCraft League (ASL) is a StarCraft: Remastered tournament series hosted by afreecaTV[1] in South Korea. It began its first season in June 2016 and used StarCraft: Brood War for its first three seasons prior to the release of StarCraft: Remastered. It is broadcast regularly in Korean and English on afreecaTV's own streaming platform as well as YouTube.[2] The main English language casters for the event are Dan "Artosis" Stemkoski and Nicolas "Tasteless" Plott. It currently runs alongside Blizzard Entertainment's Korea StarCraft League (KSL) as one of the two top level Korean leagues for StarCraft: Remastered.[3]
