Biography[edit]

Wings of Liberty[edit]

Probe was a up-and-coming Protoss without many major results under his belt. His first LAN event he attended was the Tt Melbourne LAN #2 where he lost his first game 0-2 to RivaL. He proceeded to then finish in 7th-8th place through the losers bracket, losing to fur.

Probe next LAN event was much more successful. Despite losing his second game of the day to Pox, he then proceeded to beat player after player including some big names such as Kez. He then lost again to Pox 0-2 to finish in third place.

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

Probe attended ACL Melbourne on August 10–11, being placed in Open Bracket A with players such as HuT, Satu, and Myuu. After taking impressive series off of Miles, Satu twice as well as Jaedolph, Probe was up against Frenetic Array player HuT, with the winner advancing to the Group Stage. Probe lost that series 1-2 and was eliminated from the tournament.

Probe also recently qualified for PXL Season 1 Pro League where he played in Group C alongside MegaFonzie, HuT, and Surge. Probe went down 0-2 losing 1-2 to MegaFonzie and 0-2 to HuT, knocking him down to the PXL Season 1 Amateur League.

In February 2014, Probe attended the SYF Summer LAN 2014. After being 2nd in the tournament, Probe was gifted a Round 1 bye. After waiting nearly 2 hours for his opponents, Probe finally began by beating RunaMoK 2-0, Pezz 2-1, and Fenner 2-0 to set up a match with PiG in the Winners Bracket Final. After being disposed by PiG, Probe had a rematch with Pezz which resulted in Probe winning 2-0 for a birth in the Final vs PiG again. The final produced very close games, however Probe was unable to get a map of PiG, taking 2nd place and winning $300.
