Team Legion [LgN] is thrilled to announce that our very own Canadian protoss player Marc-Olivier "desRow" Proulx will be going to Seoul, South Korea for an indefinite amount of time in order to train and improve as a player.
desRow will be paying for all his expenses and maxfrag, the personal sponsor of desRow will be helping him with the plane ticket fees.
After weeks of fan speculation, we are finally able to release the details of his travel to the community. desRow will be staying at the Gom.tv house in the company of his fellow french-speaking protoss brother ToD and many other foreigners. Further details, including travel plans and stream availability will be added soon. After his time in the Gom house, Team LgN has plans of putting desRow up in our training house with our Korean lineup which includes ChiTa, Mystic, Boss, Luxury, and CoOL.
As a team we feel that Marc has been improving greatly over the last few months both skill wise and on a fan-interaction level. We hope that his time in South Korea gives him a boost to take his play to the next level. Marc, we are confident that you will do everything in your power to make this experience worthwhile for all of the parties involved.
Show us what you are made of!
"Hey guys, First of all I can't express enough how grateful and honored I am that I've been given this opportunity. I've been working extremely hard for this to happen. Back in July, I was talking with torch but my skill level and the MLG partnership made it impossible for me to come because there was always 1 person ahead of me. Since then, I've emailed in korean about every house to see if they had room for me but it didn't work out. I was originally planning to cover all my expenses but I'm very fortunate and lucky to come across a company that is very supportive of me. I'd like to sincerely thank Maxfrag, who are helping me cover my expenses for my trip to Korea, making it much less stressful for me to take this huge step of moving across the world and changing my lifestyle.
My goal in Korea is to qualify for Code A and to improve as a player. I plan on staying in Korea until my skill level is high enough that I can compete in international events. I hope my fans can continue to support me as I put my best foot forward and really try to show that I have what it takes to succeed in Starcraft. I hope to show everyone what I can accomplish, and I will be streaming my progress on the Korean ladder as I try my best to improve my game to it's maximum potential"
“I am very happy that desRow has the chance to go to Korea to train.
He has been practicing extremely hard and shown incredible dedication to his career.
On top of that, he has been very supportive of our team, and we would like to return that sentiment by supporting him as much as possible while he is in Korea. I know that desRow will be a great training asset to our Korean players, and that they in turn will help him to become one of the best.”
