Trivia[edit]

  • ZerO defeated Stork in his first official SC2 match.
  • ZerO was infamous during his Broodwar days with his nickname "Son of Queens". With minimal utilization of Queens in Broodwar, ZerO managed to use it in very high levels. Also in a very creative way, such as his match against HwaSin in Holy World, when he infested the neutral Command Center in the map.
