Steven “Destiny” Bonnell joins Quantic Gaming

HOUSTON, Texas — October 11, 2011 — As part of Quantic Gaming’s continuing effort to reform its StarCraft 2 division, the organization is proud to announce the acquisition of popular American StarCraft 2 player, Steven “Destiny” Bonnell.

Destiny is one of StarCraft 2’s most well-known personalities, earning a living by streaming his gameplay and commentary on his popular TwitchTV channel. A charismatic Zerg player, Destiny’s gameplay style is both iconic and unique and his entertaining play has earned him countless fans throughout the community. Using his inimitable style he has proven himself to be a truly high caliber player, posting respectable results from past MLG Open Brackets and constantly competing toe-to-toe with the strongest American players.

Destiny joins Quantic’s current world-class StarCraft 2 roster, consisting of Agh, DarkCell, iNkA, SaSe, Shuffle, Theognis, and Zelniq. For his debut event as part of Quantic, Destiny will be attending MLG Orlando and competing in the Open Bracket.

Destiny’s statement from earlier today:

________________________________

"I'm incredibly excited to be a part of Quantic Gaming now. I've been wanting to take my game to the next level for a while now, and it seems like Quantic is looking to step up their game as well. I've spoken to Mark quite a bit in the past couple of weeks and I definitely feel like Quantic's goals are directly in line with my own."

________________________________

Destiny’s unique personality and position within the community is recognized by Quantic, and as such Destiny’s stream schedule and format will remain largely unaffected. It is the belief of Quantic that for competitive gaming organisations, a community-centric focus is beneficial for everyone, and Quantic aims to nurture Destiny’s relationship with the community, rather than interfere with it.

We welcome Destiny to the team, and fans can anticipate his future participation in a variety of community and tournament events.

Third time’s the charm…
