Illusion (American player)
Chris "Illusion" Lee (이유성 / Lee Yoo Sung) is a Terran player from the United States who is currently a member of ROOT Gaming.
Illusion lives in America and comes from a South Korean background. Switching from Zerg to Terran in early 2011, he quickly became a strong player, winning LANs and participating in online tournaments.
Looking to make a bigger name for himself, he joined Team Vile in early June 2011. He then joined Quantic Gaming on 4 May 2012 when the Team Vile player roster was absorbed by that organization.
On December 4, 2012, Quantic Gaming disbanded and Illusion was left teamless.
Wings of Liberty
Illusion's first notable tournament appearance was MLG Providence 2011, where he managed to claim 24th place. He defeated Sheth, KawaiiRice, and teammate Spanishiwa. His run was ended when HayprO defeated him 2-0.
On January 12, 2012, Illusion secured a spot for IEM São Paulo by upsetting DeMusliM 3-0, also defeating Ret and KawaiiRice on his path to qualifying. After losing to DarKFoRcE and KiLLeR, however, he was eliminated from the tournament.
Illusion made several upsets in his Open Bracket run during IPL 4. He won 2-0 against Zenio and lost to Maru 0-2 in the next round in the Winners Bracket. In the losers bracket Illusion defeated KiWiKaKi, Ryung and Oz 2-1 respectively before he lost to Creator 0-2 who eventually became the winner of Loser Bracket 3.
IPL Fight Club
On July 30, 2012, Illusion was invited to participate in the IPL Fight Club. His first opponent was Squirtle. His debut was cut short as he was knocked out in his very first match up by a score of 0-5, and was not able to dethrone Squirtle.
