TLO traveled to South Korea with other Liquid` members: Nazgul and Jinro to compete in the GOMTV Global StarCraft II League.

TLO in the Qualifiers
TLO only competed in 2 TSL3 Qualifiers placing well enough to earn him Top points on the ranking. In the TeamSpeak TL Open 10 he reached the Round of 4. In the TeamSpeak TL Open 11 TLO blitzed through tough Opponents like MorroW, Ciara and mOoNan to meet White-Ra in the finals, although he was defeated 2-3, TLO had earned enough points in the Rankings to qualify for TSL3 early on.
Terran is TLOs strongest race, his tactics became very popular during GSL when he used Nuclear launches to confuse his enemy, while he dropped Marines in their main base or to move his enemy's army where he wanted to ambush them. TLOs Terran is overall very Solid, flexible to his strategies and hard to break.
