Maarsch is a caster/streamer and event organizer that has belatedly come to the conclusion that a regular life may not be his thing.
Having struggled through a bunch of schools he now holds an engineering degree and is gainfully employed calculating stuff. And using that money to fuel his alternate career in e-sports.
Maarsch holds a BSc in Aerospace Engineering and a MSc specifically in Composite Structures.
Maarsch has lived on 4 continents and has held gainful employment in each. For reasons not quite clear Maarsch decided to get into e-sports 3 years after regularly visiting GSL finals and the Mok-Dong studio during his time living in Seoul. He now lives in not-Seoul, home to no-esports-organization, this is clearly a superiour time to start on this path.
He started his journey in Twitch/Youtube on January 2016.
Maarsch played SC2 during the beta all the way to LotV, but his most active role in esports is in attending live events rather than competing/casting.
Living in Seoul, South Korea meant that spectating meant high quality games for low cost/investment. Also it meant being subject to the Korean ladder, which impacted his ego in a negative way.
Legacy of the Void
During LotV Maarsch actually ventured into casting. Starting with a shitty mic and no webcam he started streaming. Using his non-esports money he slowly upgraded his casting rig to semi-amateur acceptable settings.
Started casting for Reddit's castit regularly.
As of July 2016 he is loosely associated with Polygon Gaming providing tournament coordination, general support, admining and casting.
