Meet the next four pro players entering the ASUS Stracraft II Pro Am online tournament.
This week the ASUS Starcraft II Pro Am kicks off in partnership with GameSpot AU. But, who's taking part you ask? Here are the next four of 16 professional players who will be vying for cash and prizes. We'll be revealing four each day leading up to Friday's kick-off.
Name: Daniel "delete" Li
Team: Sequential Gaming
At only 17 years of age, Sequential Gaming’s Daniel “delete” Li has really demonstrated a breakthrough performance lately, taking down some of the heaviest opponents in the recent Australian Cyber League Sydney 2012 Nationals. He also recently won two of the wT weekly events.
Once Daniel is finished with the Heart of the Swarm single-player campaign, he’ll be keeping an eye on professional Protoss players from around the world to see exactly what clever and powerful strategies they can engineer before standing trial before the Blizzard balance tribunal!
Name: Andrew "SenSei" Carmichael
Andrew "SenSei" Carmichael is a 23 year old Protoss player from team Carnage, with a long-standing rivalry with Nv’s deth. He's looking forward to inventing new and unique strategies when Heart of the Swarm is released, and using them to dominate the ladder.
With a top eight finish at the Australian Cyber League’s Gold Coast event, and having taken second place at their Brisbane Regionals, Andrew has made it clear that he’s one of the strongest Protoss players in the scene.
Name: Ethan "iaguz" Zugai
Team: Xeria Gaming
Ethan "iaguz" Zugai is one of Australia’s most outspoken and charismatic Terran players, with a striking resemblance to James Raynor's Engineer--Rory Swann!
Nicknamed the “Gimli Terran”, Xeria Gaming’s 22 year old star is no stranger to competitive play, having represented Australia alongside his fellow Sydney player PiG at the Intel Extreme Masters event in Guangzhou, China. He also took 3rd place at the NRG Hardcore Gamer 2011 tournament in Sydney, where he took a game from StarTale’s Ace.
Name: David "Rossi" Rossi
Team: Gamecom Nv
David "Rossi" Rossi is a 20-year old Terran player. As one of the late-comers to the scene, David is really looking forward to the release of Heart of the Swarm so that he can be a part of the phase where everyone is establishing new build orders and pioneering brave new strategies.
Last year David found himself representing Australia on the world stage, when he went up against the best-of-the-best in the IPL4 Oceanic Qualifiers in Manila. Most recently, he proceeded to play over 34 tournament games in a single weekend, where he took first place in a World Championship Series Australian Qualifier, followed by second place in a Masters Cup!
Check back soon for the next four pro players taking part in our upcoming Starcraft II tournament.
