The Korean StarCraft II top player Eo “soO” Yoon Su signed a contract with Dutch esportteam Asterion. In the long run he might even move to the Netherlands and learn the language. A remarkable decision by the Zerg player.
Time and again soO makes it to the final stages of each tournament. At the World Championship Series last year and in the HomeStory Cup he came second. For two years soO was looking for a team he felt comfortable with and could trust. Choosing Asterion was carefully deliberated.
Managing director at Asterion Amon Havers declares: Ever since Asterion signed Kevin “Harstem” de Koning we have experienced first-hand the positivity of the StarCraft II -community. This is a community who has managed to regroup in a good way after a period of decline. This makes us incredibly motivated to grow in StarCraft II and esport. We have chosen to sign one of the best players in the world to help empower the Dutch region, as well as our own team. With the addition of soO we also create better training opportunities for our player Harstem.
