This is the player page for the StarCraft 2 player, not to be mistaken with the Swedish Counter Strike player
Souaib "cArn" Hanaf, is a retired French Terran player who used to be on Eternity Gaming and lived in South Korea for several years.
Not much is known of cArn's participation in the Beta version of StarCraft II.
Wings of Liberty
cArn spent several months teamless in the GOMTV Foreigner House and fruitlessly tried to get a spot in GSL Code A. He then had to leave the GOMTV house to make room for FXOpen e-Sports players when they arrived, and relocated himself in another place. He is one of the four French players who have lived and competed in Korea, the other three being Stephano, ToD and SoJu (not to be mistaken with the Korean WC3 player).
On 9 July 2011, it was announced he had joined the eSahara StarCraft II team as one of its first members. Even though the team was located in Europe, cArn didn't leave Korea, instead staying to try and make his way through GSL Code B. He tried to get a spot in 2011 GSL August Code A, but was eliminated in the first round of Code B by Cezanne. Two days later, cArn traveled to China in order to compete in CPL Invitational 2011, but was forced by the Chinese authorities to take a flight back to Korea before the beginning of the event, because of an alleged Visa issue.
On 3 October 2011, cArn was invited to Electronic Sports World Cup 2011 as Morocco's representative (cArn has dual citizenship). His first appearance at a premier foreign event wasn't successful, cArn went 1-4 in the group stage, with a win only over Leugim, and was knocked out of the tournament.
He was announced to have been dropped from eSahara on 11 January 2012 due to 'lack of motivation' in regards to his refusal to attend the GSL qualifiers, believing that his skill level was not sufficient to participate.
