Profiles[edit]

Casters[edit]

Sayle

Sayle is one of the most famous English Brood War casters out there. Starting out as an unknown admin on iCCup, Sayle rose to fame through casting various foreigner tournaments including Kaal's International Starleague & Gambit's Cup, enough to be recognised and partnered with Twitch.tv. Most recently he provided English commentary for the 2011 - 2012 SK Planet Proleague Season 1 & 2. He plays Protoss and has gotten B- on iCCup, he also played for United Kingdom in Altitude's Nation Wars. Sayle is known for his Korean-esque commentary, providing highly energetic and entertaning casts.

Elegant

Mote "Elegant" Keatinge, also known as ImbaTosS, was one of the first to actively provide live commentary on various events during 2011 and eventually became one of the most popular foreign casters. He has casted such events as Kaal's International Starleague alongside Sayle and is currently casting the Swedish Brood War Initiative Nation Wars. Elegant is from the United Kingdom and plays Protoss, his max rank on iCCup is C+. For the Gambit's Cup 3 Elegant co-founded a team, Fox Gaming, with his brother Poetic. Elegant is known for his fluent and eloquent casting.

Invites[edit]

Sziky

Widely considered the best foreign player, Sziky has an impressive list of accomplishments. In TSL2, he finished in the top 12 of the qualification stage with an A rank, falling to Tarson just short of the round of 16. Since then, he has recorded ten first place finishes in Defiler tours and won ISL2 and ISL3. Sziky is known for his sharp mutalisk and zergling control and his meticulous late game management.

Michael

Known as gutshot on TL, Michael is loved for his entertaining stream where he cheeses in every way imaginable (and several ways unimaginable) against high level opponents. Michael is an extremely skilled player besides this and is more than capable of winning at any point in the game. While he is always near the top of anyone's list of best foreigners, Michael is still trying to score a major tournament win, having been eliminated 3-4 in the ISL3 round of 8 by Semih and 2-3 in the Gosucup finals by Pro7ect.

dOTY

The German Protoss, known for his exemplary PvP and PvT, has earned recognition for his PvZ abilities when he took Sziky to a final ninth game in the ISL3, shattering popular expectations of a blowout. dOTY has been active in team leagues such as Gambit's Cup, where he helped lead SJ to a third place finish. Recently, dOTY has also become involved in the TL community, providing a high level first person stream with English commentary.

skzlime

skzlime earned wide recognition in the foreign scene playing for Hungary in Nation Wars, often being favored as the ace over household names such as Sziky and Ace. Since then, the Terran player has been a fixture in Gambit's Cup, achieving a 6-3 record in Gambit's Cup 3 and earning sas a victory over LRM with an all-kill in the playoff finals. skzlime is known for his excellent factory play, making him extremely strong in TvP and TvT and adding an extra dimension to his already dangerous TvZ.
