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


Before StarCraft:Remastered, from 2001 till 2008, Favorit used the nickname Zarrr. Under this name he first played for the clans IP. and IPS. where he managed to qualify for Ger-B and Ger-A teams. Later he joined ash. until he was kicked because of [1] dual claning together with fanatic and Silenceplz. As a freelancer he was recruited by clan w4sp. (later n!faculty). In 2008, when a new method to catch hackers was found,[2] Favorit was caught.[3][4] [5] As a result, he was temporarily banned from BWCL and all his league games in the BWCL season 28 (2008) were considered losses for his team, which led to the relegation of n!faculty. Ironically, n!faculty had been able to avert the relegation shortly before by playing catch-up matches against their direct competitor ash.

After an internal controversy at ash. it was decided to give him another chance and he was accepted back in May 2009. Shortly after He was caught hacking again and kicked again. ICCup: Let the drama begin![6] [7]

In 2010 Favorit was invited to join Nb. and started using the new nickname Nb.Favorite on which he achieved A- in 1v1 and 2v2 on ICCup and won the BWCL. When Nb. went inactive in 2012 he moved on to iwL- where he won 2 more BWCL titles and retired.

With the release of SC:Remastered Favorit came back to the game and competes since under the flag of iRk in BWCL and BSL.
