Sam "FireZerg" Prowse is a Zerg player from Canada, formerly playing for Complexity Gaming's academy.[1]

Biography[edit]

FireZerg was originally a Brood War player before starting his StarCraft II career. He started playing in the very late stages of the beta. Because of his late acceptance into the beta, FireZerg decided to wait until the release of Wings of Liberty before taking a shot at playing competitively. Outside of competitive play in team leagues and individual tournaments, FireZerg attends university and is a well respected player coach.

Wings of Liberty[edit]

FireZerg ended 2010 with a surprising surge to popularity, and has started 2011 with a bang. In Fall 2010, he joined Team NOVA, which was soon picked up by compLexity Gaming as their StarCraft II team. He also became a new face on the well-known coaching website GosuCoaching, and has since gained a lot of respect as a teacher. He has since opened 2011 with a first-place win in the aMg Classic Tourney #2.

FireZerg, along with long-time teammate Steak, was released from compLexity on September 18, 2011.[2]

On October 9, 2011, FireZerg joined Cyber Gaming as a Team Coach.[3]

In late 2012[when?], FireZerg rejoined team compLexity as an academy member.[Citation needed]

MLG Pro Circuit 2011[edit]

After that, he made a valiant run through the losers bracket defeating players such as MrBitter and tgun before getting knocked out of the tournament by losing to IefNaij 2-1.

FireZerg competed once again in MLG Anaheim 2011. He was knocked down in the second round of the winners open bracket by SLoG, losing 2-1.
