Entire StarCraft 2 eSports Pro-Team Saved, Acquired by Quantic

In a separate interview, we spoke to player Chris “Illusion” Lee, who began his professional SC2 career when he joined Team Vile in June of 2011 and aspires to make a long-term career out of pro-gaming.

Game Front: How big of a change will it be to transition from Vile to Quantic?

Lee: I think most things will stay the same. The Quantic players are just as friendly as Vile’s. I think the only change will be in management; it’ll be much more organized, and we’ll be able to play our best because the management will help us towards that. In the past, our management wasn’t as coordinated, so we had to do things ourselves. It was really sloppy and messy, and we couldn’t put complete focus on our play.

GF: Are you more comfortable with the move because you have so many fellow Vile players coming with you?

Lee: Yeah, I’m pretty comfortable with that, because it’s like bringing my family with me. Other teams have spoken to me, but they weren’t as accommodating as Quantic. The fact that Quantic would go out of their way to make everything comfortable for me really showed that they do care.

GF: In what ways have the Quantic folks made you comfortable?

Lee: For one thing, they’re not forcing me to stay in a team house. They’re really accommodating at LANs; they bring out food and drink and show concern for my well-being. They want to make sure everything is good in my real life so that it doesn’t affect my play. They wanted to talk to my parents as well so that we’re all on the same page with my family. And they’re just, overall, really nice guys.

I love team vile. Not because they’re necessarily the #1 best of the best (although they do have some very good players), but because all of them make for very entertaining matches and because they’re friendly guys. Vile has also brought forth a great deal of innovative solid strategies, so it’s good to see them having a future!

Meh the only reason you guys <3 PsY is because you are Zerg players, from what ive noticed from giving his content on youtube a good amount of time to impress have just been so disapointing the normal casts of games he have done is like hearing BEAUTIFUL FUNGAL BEAUTIFUL FUNGAL BEAUTIFUL FUNGAL BEAUTIFUL FUNGAL. If you know what i mean, and the only reason why i even post here is how disgusted ive been when I have posted either constructive critism without rage without being offensive and all the little zerglings just rage for fury.

Which makes me think of oh wait. Idra fans behaves in a certain way. Oh wait the lamest person in SC2 history Destiny oh his fans is exactly the same.
I have no idea why every single fan of well the 4 zerg players that have a fanbase where I have noticed how lame you guys are. Probably because you guys are fans of retarded ppl who have a fanbase only because they are creating drama or/and raging and being BM. Tactical Nuke plz.
