Meet the final four pro contenders entering the ASUS Stracraft II Pro Am online tournament.
Tonight the ASUS Starcraft II Pro Am kicks off in partnership with GameSpot AU. But, who's taking part you ask? Here are the final four of 16 professional players who will be vying for cash and prizes. Be sure to tune into to the tournament from 7pm tonight AEST.
Name: Yojun "YoonYJ" Yun
Team: Gamecom Nv
Yojun "YoonYJ" Yun is one of Australia’s very few competitive Terran players, with several appearances at national championship events over the last two years. By training almost exclusively on the Korean server, YoonYJ takes a lot of pride in regularly beating Code S GSL stars.
Like his fellow Gamecom Nv teammates, he enjoys playing Terran vs Zerg more than any other match-up, not only because of the excitement factor, but because most of South East Asia’s best players are Zerg, and he enjoys the intensity of playing such challenging opponents.
Name: Bradley "tgun" Seymour
Team: It’s Gosu eSports
Bradley "tgun" Seymour is a 21 year old Zerg player from Sydney, and is one of very few Australian players to have competed abroad multiple times. With experience in South Korea’s Global StarCraft League and America’s Major League Gaming, Brad has unique insight into competitive gaming.
Brad is also one of very few Australians who also represents an international team, with the rest of the its-GoSu roster hailing from Canada, America and Korea.
Name: Lucas "Techtron" Tan
Lucas "Techtron" Tan is a 17 year old Zerg player from Melbourne, and although being relatively new to the scene, boasts some impressive results.
Having attended numerous Melbourne events, Lucas strives to defeat his friendly rival deth, as the two pair regularly face each other in the final rounds of local tournaments. The most recent of these was the Australian Cyber League Melbourne Regionals, where both players were awarded invitations to participate in the Blizzard World Championship Series for Australia!
Name: Zi Ray "Light" Wang
Team: Xeria Gaming
Zi Ray "Light" Wang is widely regarded as one of the best Protoss players in the country, despite several periods of inactivity. With numerous appearances at national championships--including the SEA 2011 Battle.net Invitational and WCG Australia 2011--Light has made a name for himself, especially after taking a game from StarTale's Ace and landing himself in second place at the 2011 NRG Hardcore Gamer tournament.
With a hardcore record of 108 games played in a 24 hour ladder session, Light is looking to take it easy when Heart of the Swarm is released.
That's the full roster of pros joining this weekend's ASUS Stracraft II Pro Am. Tune in to GameSpot AU from 7pm AEST to watch all the action.
