Getting to Know: EndOfLine
By Caitlyn Underwood
How, why, and when did you get into gaming?
I have always been into gaming. Games have always been there for me, either as a mental escape from my daily grind or a way to vent. On long road trips I played the original Pokemon Red and Tetris. At home, I played computer games and console games. Some of the first games that grabbed my attention were: Warcraft 1, Diablo 1, Super Mario World, F-Zero, Contra III: The Alien Wars, 007: Golden Eye, Perfect Dark, Super Smash Bros., Mario Kart, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II, Streets of Rage 1 and 2, Donkey Kong 1 and 2, Fallout 1, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tribes 2, Warcraft 2, Command and Conquer.
Bang Tae Soo (방태수) or TRUE as most will know him has finally achieved his dream of becoming a StarCraft Champion. After winning WCS Circuit Summer in Montreal in dominating fashion. TRUE dropped 2 maps across the whole tournament en route to his first ever championship.
TRUE finally received his visa meaning his only chance to make it to Blizzcon for the WCS Global playoffs was to win the remaining WCS Circuit event which gave a direct seed to the WCS finals.
TRUE had already qualified for the hardest tournament in SCII, GSL Code S after defeating CJ Entus Bunny 3-2 in Code A. Upon receiving his visa TRUE dropped out of the tournament to participate in the global circuit.
TRUE vs Bunny Review
On day 1 of the GSL Code A we saw PSISTORM Gaming’s TRUE come back from 0-2 Deficit to beat CJ Entus Bunny in the BO5 for a place in GSL Code S. Now we will analyse how TRUE fell behind, and more importantly how he came back when the odds were firmly against him to be able to snatch a code S spot from Bunny.
NoRegreT is competing with Scarlett in GSL Code A qualifiers. Here’s his latest video:
He had a good run, here’s the info on brackets and players.
Getting food sounds mundane but when you’re in a foreign country and you’re NoRegreT who doesn’t eat any ethnic food, it’s quite an adventure for him.
As we know, Jake “NoRegreT” Umpleby is in Korea training at the MVP house. Here’s a tour while players are at Proleague:
The inaugural PSISTORM Cup took place on January 31st, 2016 at The Cave Gaming Center in Fairfax, Virginia. Players competed in a double elimination bracket for their chance to earn the title of PSISTORM Cup champion, and win some money from the $1,100 prize pool as well. After a long day of intense Starcraft II action, a champion was crowned.
