I’m happy to announce that I’m now training with Team Prime!
When Team fOu disbanded in December, I honestly wasn’t sure about my future in Korea. I worried that I might miss my opportunity to train with the very best and didn’t know whether I’d be able to find a new team house on such short notice. Thankfully, my concern was shortlived—I’m now excited and relieved to have found a new home and I can’t wait to start practicing with the members of Prime.
Training at the Prime house is going to be a rewarding experience for a lot of reasons. Not only will I get a chance to learn from world-class Protoss players like Kal and Creator, but I might even compete in Proleague if I do well enough in practice. It was great watching players like HuK and Snute compete in Proleague last season, and I’d love to follow in their footsteps in 2014.
I’ll start streaming again on Twitch as soon as I get settled into the new house! I will also have a brand-new streaming schedule ready for you guys when my training regimen begins next week, so you can expect a lot more games to come. Follow me on Twitter to keep updated!
These next few months are going to be awesome and I’m really looking forward to sharing them with you! In the meantime, here’s this week’s replay pack. Enjoy!
