Far as I know, anyone can get in provided you can get through the qualifiers. Then once they have all 64 players, they get paired up, not sure about the specific procedure though and it rolls from there. As for the current code A and S games, I have no clue what is going on in GSL 4 XD

You start by registering on the GOMtv website. You have to go through the qualifiers which are scheduled in certain malls in Seoul/Incheon to get into Code A. Then you can compete in the GSL.

GOMtv will provide sleeping arrangements (for a certain time only I think, like until you qualify into Code A) if you're not korean.
They will probably also help you get a Korean SC2 account (you need a korean ID).

It's pretty straight forward. But you have to be sure to go through it all and be able to stay in korea for a few weeks depending on your success (or come back for every game).

Shoot, depending on the orders that i get when i come back, i may be stationed in Korea for 2 years. Don't know yet, thats why i'm asking.

The dude who retaught me the art of Starcraft is a good friend of mine, and he's Korean. He also says hes not that good. PFFT! I'M not that good.

Wow so it may be worth some weeks of leave and all that huh?

Well it's up to you whether it's worth or not, but if you're not that good you probably won't get past the qualifiers.

Pretty much. If you are going on vacation for a couple of week to Korea, then registering and trying your luck, for the fun of it won't hurt

Well some Pro SC2 players that practice 8 hours a day fail to qualify. (E.G. LiquidHuk in season 3)

Though you could get lucky and get a relatively easy qualifier group. You would need to at least be a top tier diamond, if not in master league to have a chance I'd say.

The GSL is one of the toughest tournaments out there... one doesn't simply enter, qualify and own... this is SPARTA!

(Do try and see some games being played in the GSL to see... this is the big league)...

If you can be in Korea during the right times and can arrange for lodging and stuff, I don't see why you wouldn't give it a shot. Even if you don't make it far, I'm sure just BEING there would help your game tremendously. If you have the time and means to do it I would definitely recommend going. I don't know if you would qualify for team housing though, really depends on your current skill level and whether it matches up with what they're looking for.

In terms of registering and stuff, this is taken from John's post on TL.net

Hello,

The GSL Tour in 2011 is divided into Code S and Code A
As open seasons are over, those of you who have not yet acquired Code S and Code A need to participate in Code A preliminary in order to compete in GSL.
Note the following.

Code S : Top 32 players in the league.
Code A : Next best 32 players.
Code B : Top ladder players who are given the right to play in Code A preliminary.
Interchange between Code A and Code S = Up & Down match
Interchange between Code A and Code B = Code A Preliminary

Code A Preliminary Registration Date : January 17th 00:00(KST) ~ January 22nd 24:00(KST)
Code A Preliminary Date : January 30th(Sunday)
Location : TechnoMart, Sindorim, Seoul, Korea
Format : Full tournament, best of 3
Maps : 1st set : Xel`Naga Caverns / 2nd set : Metalopolis / 3rd set : Scrap Station

We want as many foreign players participating in GSL as possible.
However, in previous season we noted that many players had difficulty finding place to stay, and therefore we are providing team house from this season.
At the moment the players can only sleep at the house but once we have 4 seeded foreigners invited we will also provide computers to practice(The exact date of when the PCs will be available is undecided)
Note that the team house can only hold up to 8~10 people. If you wish to stay at the team house, you need to send a) copy of your passport b) your ladder ranking to [email protected]
People with the highest ladder ranking will be accepted to the house. Make sure you send them after the registration begins(Jan 17th 00:00). If you send them before appointed date and time it will not be accepted.

Thanks everyone. I'm sure that with a lot of practice, i should be seeing diamond in like 2-3 months. I just got the hang of how to win vs terran as Protoss. That is my largest obstacle. Playing protoss is tough, but i would rather face toss than a 3M.
