StarCraft 2 Ladder Season Ends July 5; New Season Begins July 19
StarCraft 2‘s second ladder season is coming to a close. The ladder will be locked from Tuesday, July 5 at 9:00 AM PDT to Tuesday, July 19.
During the lock, your bonus pool will stop growing, and you won’t be demoted or promoted from one league to another. However, you can still use the bonus pool you’ve accumulated to move up (or down) the ladder in your current league.
When Season 3 starts, your bonus pool will be reset, so to borrow a slightly perverse axiom: use it or lose it. As with Season 2, you’ll need to play one placement match after Season 3 begins — unless you never played your initial 5, of course.
