StarCraft 2 is widely regarded as the first esport title of the Twitch era. And although the game hasn’t quite the audience it used to have, many people are still interested in the esport scene of this game. Today we have one of the most popular and remarkable personalities of StarCraft 2 in our podcast. Do we really need to introduce this legend to you? Of course, we are talking about Dario ‘TLO’ Wünsch, aka ‘Wunderwünsch’, aka ‘Dr. Dario’.
The German Team Liquid player has been a pro for nearly seven years now. His skill pales only in comparison to his popularity which goes beyond the realms of StarCraft. Therefore, we are proud to welcome Dario to tonight’s episode. The fan favorite tells us about his beginnings in gaming in a very relaxed atmosphere. As the youngest of four brothers, Dario has always had a competitive nature. The will to be the best was later also his motivation for his RTS career.
Because of his profession as a gamer, Dario also spent some time in Korea in a teamhouse. He shares his experience with Korean life and work ethics with us, and explains why the country is so dominant in StarCraft 2.
Moreover, TLO announces his plans for 2017. Obviously, our Wunderwünsch longs for an overdue tournament victory. Despite his consistent presence in the scene, he hasn’t won a single tournament yet. And if that doesn’t work out? In that case, he plans to qualify for BlizzCon to take it all at once. Dario is a man with ambitions.
Dario’s calm and reflective personality makes this episode to one of our best ones. We recommend it to both StarCraft veterans and listeners who havn’t touched the game yet. What are you waiting for? Do yourself a favor and press “Play” already!
