When I first started to play StarCraft 2 I knew nothing about esports. The first progamer I ever heard of was MorroW. A good friend of mine, ”ProxyPanda”, played against him in a really cool tournament match. MorroW was also the first progamer I met and that was back in 2011, in the Swedish gaming house where he was living together with some other progamers. It’s funny to think about it. It feels like such a long time ago. Seeing the gaming house was like seeing a new world. The people living there played SC2 for a living! There I was, a total noob when it came to both gaming and SC2. I don’t remember exactly how good/bad I was, but I think I was around gold league at that time. After the visit I was inspired and I gained more motivation to play more SC2. I’m really happy my friends took me there.
MorroW might be making stupid (imo) jokes sometimes and we disagree a lot, but there are never any hard feelings. In person he has always been very nice. And he has been a big inspiration to me for a long time, especially when he was playing Zerg!. I will probably always be cheering for him in SC2.
Tonight Morrow is the last Swedish hope in WCS. I really hope he makes it. Good luck Morrow!
