Our plan is to shed some light on some of the lesser known players and teams. We will also keep you up to date on qualifying events, LAN events, as well as major tournaments.
NanMan - Nathanial "NanMan" Johnson is the manager of the LXG Clan and up and coming caster. 11 Years ago he was introduced to Starcraft Brood War through his cousins. At the time he learned Zerg playing in 6 player team games and FFA on Big Game Hunters. Fast forward to 2010 when NanMan got accepted into the second round beta of Starcraft II. At the time he was playing on an old laptop and decided to play as terran to mess around with strats like reaper rushes and floating your command center to the gold mineral patches. When the game was released he switched back to his original race zerg. In November 2010 NanMan started casting amateur tournaments and random matches for his YouTube. 2011 was spent focusing on improving his casting and in November he hosted NanMan's Week of Show Matches! NanMan's main focus in 2012 is to get to know the up and coming teams and players more. He's been able to cast the local DC LAN, ePi Opens, Playhem Sponsor me tournament, SC2Clans Team League, ESEA, and many other events. NanMan has always had the mindset that you don't have to be a top tier player to show entertaining games.
MasterDalK - Salil "MasterDalK" Gupta is the caster for Team oGaming. Salil started his journey through eSports when he began play DotA1 with a few friends, after enjoying it a lot he found 4 other guys through b.net and started playing semi-professionally (hitting B- at one point). He started with StarCraft when he first recieved his battle chest back in 2009 on a trip to Future Shop one day. He enjoyed watching the GomTV Avartec Intel Classics a lot, and looks up very much to Tasteless and Grr... Because of this he's a Protoss in both BW and SC2. DalK started his venture into casting in June 2012, and has ramped up his skill very quickly since then.
