"Favorit" is a German StarCraft: BroodWar player of Russian origin who lives in Sweden.


Before StarCraft:Remastered, Favorit used the name Zarrr or Zar. Under this name he first played for the clan ash. until he was kicked because of the accusation of repeated[1] dual claning together with fanatic - to whom the same accusation applied. As a freelancer he was recruited by clan w4sp. (later n!faculty) and played there for some time. In 2008, when a new method to catch hackers was found,[2] Favorit was caught.[3][4] [5] As a result, all his league games in the BWCL season 28 (2008) were considered losses for his team, which led to the relegation of n!faculty and the kick for Zarrr. Ironically, n!faculty had been able to avert the relegation shortly before by playing catch-up matches against their direct competitor ash.

In the following time Favorit acted as if he had changed for the better and after an internal controversy at ash. it was decided to give him another chance and he was accepted back in May 2009. Even before Favorit had survived his trial period at ash, he was again convicted of hacking and kicked in August 2009.[6][7] [8]
