Trivia[edit]

  • TriMaster has a younger brother, under the name SniXSniPe, who is also playing Starcraft II as a member of compLexity Academy.[1]
  • Both he and his brother are right-handed, but play left-handed because when they were children, they used to play a lot on their father's computer, who is left-handed.
  • A notable bit of controversy was ignited after IdrA's series against TriMaster in the Championship Bracket of MLG Raleigh 2011. After the third game, IdrA left without a gg, audibly and forcibly smashing his headset against his keyboard. His F4 key popped off and was picked up by a redditor who later gave it to TriMaster.[2]
  • At MLG Raleigh 2011, DongRaeGu stated that he considers TriMaster one of the top foreigners along with HuK, ThorZaIN and KiWiKaKi.[3]
  • compLexity Gaming has produced a movie documenting his success in MLG Raleigh 2011: Link
