Kim "SaSe" Hammar joins Quantic's StarCraft 2 division

Quantic is undergoing a transformation within its StarCraft 2 division and the first major renovation comes in the addition of the Swedish Protoss powerhouse, Kim “Sase” Hammar. After securing our initial team which now consists of Agh, Darkcell, iNkA, Shuffle, Theognis, and Zelniq, Quantic gaming has been improving from the inside out and we now feel that we landed this missing piece.

Sase’s dedication to this game is apparent from the second you discuss StarCraft with him. His passion seeps through and makes him one of the most dedicated players on the entire planet which is why we believe he holds such a bright future. His work ethic combined with being in a Korean training environment is a recipe for success and we at Quantic are excited to have him on board. We will be doing all in our power to make this partnership mutually beneficial and will promise that Sase will be showcasing his skills around the world very soon.

Here is a statement made earlier today from Sase:

“After too long of a time without a team I have finally found one.

Quantic approached me in a very professional way like no other team has ever done before. After days of meetings and discussions we finally agreed on a contract. I am so excited about this team and the best part is that I am just the first step of what is to come! I would like to thank Ben and Nicholas for spotting me. Also a huge thanks to Mark for being the coolest CEO I have spoken to when it comes to gaming! Quantic Gaming fighting!”

We would love to welcome Sase to QxG and more details concerning this deal will be available on our podcast at 6 pm EST athttp://www.twitch.tv/Axeltoss. If you have any questions that you wish to be addressed in the podcast please post in the official podcast thread,
