The ANZ StarCraft II esports community is a close-knit and passionate group. It has a colourful history with friendships forged at Australian Cyber League LAN events dating back to 2012. Many of the original community faces have grown to become pillars of the StarCraft II community.
Jared ‘PiG’ Krensel has grown over the years as an accomplished professional player to one of the most renowned StarCraft II casters and content creators across the globe. At the same time, Helen ‘Zepph’ Browitt and Leigh ‘Maynarde’ Mandalov have been front and centre as the faces and voices that guided viewers on our journey through the action. The veteran Iaguz, who competed in the very first ACS Gold Coast event, still stands out today as one of the most accomplished players in the region with many appearances on the international stage.
mOOnGLaDe, KingKong, tgun, MaFia. The list of names is endless. These personalities paved the way for more contenders to join the fray. Sean ‘Probe’ Kempen, Sheldon ‘Seither’ Barrow, and up-and-comers such as Cameron ‘Yours’ Foster now carry the torch for ANZ StarCraft II.
With that said, we are proud to continue to build on the ANZ StarCraft II legacy by gathering this rich pool of talent for the very first ANZ Proleague.
With a $3,500.00 USD prize pool on the line, five teams will compete over a 4-week round-robin, commencing at 7:00 pm AEDT (12:00 am PST) November 21, 2017.
