Player Breakdown
Number of Players:


Team SCV Life (TSL) was a Korean StarCraft II team. It was founded by former MBC Game HERO coach Lee Woon Jae.[1] The team's initial roster included former eSTRO player and coach TricKsteR (Tester), FruitDealer (Cool)—both of whom were formerly part of oGsHappiness (Gas), and Clide. It was announced during the opening rounds of the GSL tournament #2 that StarCraft: Brood War pro-gamer SangHo (now known as Killer) and a relatively unknown player named Rain also joined the team as well.

In 2011, TSL became the first professional StarCraft II team to pay salaries to its players. The highest paid player at that point in time is FruitDealer with roughly 30,000 USD annually, closely followed by TricKsteR, and the remaining members of the team.

On August 4, 2011, Team SCV Life was expelled from SC2Con, at the time the association of Korean progaming teams, because of accusations from FruitDealer and TricKsteR that Coach Lee had stopped paying their wages without any warning, and because he used these two players's image for his advertising even after they ended their collaboration with the team.[2] This was eventually overturned on August 9 due to the accusations being proved false and based on misunderstanding and misinformation.[3]

On September 20, it was announced that MajOr would start practicing with TSL.[4]

On November 27, it was announced that Killer, JYP, and Clide were leaving TSL. HyuN, formerly of Brood War team MBC Game would also join the roster of TSL.[5]

The team disbanded due to not being able to find enough sponsors on January 3, 2013.[6][7][8]
