Hamburg – February 3, 2014 – ROCCAT™ Studios, German manufacturer of high-quality gaming peripherals, continues to grow its professional gaming team, with the Hamburg based company today announcing that Korean StarCraft II pro player Ko “HyuN” Seok Hyun has joined Team ROCCAT. HyuN is one of the top StarCraft II players worldwide, winning last year’s DreamHack Open in Valencia and the MSI Pro Cup, and finishing runner-up in both the Home Story Cup VIII and the MLG Spring Championship 2013.
HyuN commented: “The last months in my old team weren’t easy for me – therefore I’m glad that I finally found a professional and reliable team here at ROCCAT. I can now focus on playing StarCraft II and my goal for 2014 is to win as many events as possible with my new team”.
HyuN is the second player to join ROCCATs StarCraft II division following the signing of Ukraine-based StarCraft veteran ‘DIMAGA’ last year. “StarCraft II still has a big impact on the international eSports community and therefore we are happy to sign another strong player for our team”, said ROCCAT founder and CEO René Korte. “HyuN will not only represent ROCCAT at all these big events but he – like all of our other professional players – will also help us develop new products, features and technologies.”
