Tobias "ZpuX" Nilsson is a Swedish Protoss player and former member of the Templars of Twilight.

General Information[edit]

According to Readmore.de, ZpuX started to play StarCraft Brood War in 1999[1]. In the first years of his career, the Swedish Protoss was not known on the international scene.

His first appearance in a major tournament was during Dreamhack Summer 2005, where he finished fourth. In the years later, ZpuX improved steadily and joined the B Roster of the Swedish National Team. In 2007 the Protoss finished second in the Dreamhack Summer edition, in which he only lost to more experienced Datoby.

The silver medal in the offline series remained ZpuX' only bigger achievement. In the years after 2007 the Protoss also gained a positive reputation in the international scene. His talent was rewarded with an invite to SC4All's Spirit Tournament. However, the Swede lost in the first round immediately to the better playing Peruvian Handy. Almost exactly one year after the tournament, ZpuX joined the Templars of Twilight.

Until the StarCraft II Wings Of Liberty Beta the Protoss remained in the A-Roster of the prestigious clan and participated in many clan leagues, winning an even amount of games. With his team's disbandment, the Swede transitioned to SCII and shortly afterwards retired. He still occasionally plays Brood War for fun.
