LG-IM is the first ever SC2 team to own a GSL champion for all three races.
On July 27th at 7:10pm at Busan Haeundae, on a special stage for the 2012 Monsieur J GSL Season 3 Code S finals, the "Illusion Toss" LG-IM_Seed overcame the Protoss president SK.MC with a 4:1 victory.
Up until now, LG-IM had been to the GSL finals for a total of nine times, and had given birth to 4x GSL winner Mvp and 3x GSL winner NesTea, for a total of 7 Gold and 2 Silver trophies. Within these finals there was even a LG-IM team kill finals.
Even though IM was completely dominating the GSL with Mvp and NesTea, IM was still lacking in the Protoss area. Not a single Protoss player on the IM team was able to achieve the necessary results for IM, and thus, was a very disappointing factor. That was, until IM_Seed got up to the finals and kicked up IM's number to 10, won the finals, and set an entirely new record.
With Seed's championship, LG-IM now owns 8 GSL trophies, has a championship for each of the races, Terran, Zerg, and Protoss, and was the first ever SC2 professional team to accomplish this feat.
LG-IM's coach, Kang Dong Hoon stated that "I am very glad our team was the first ever team to achieve the feature of having a player with a GSL championship for all three races, but the fact that we have another champion besides Mvp and NesTea is a much bigger joy. With our three GSL champions, and a plethora of other talented players on our roster, we will work hard to finally recapture the GSTL.
