ImageSK Gaming's "FIFA Twins" Hero and Styla, four time WCG gold medalists collectively, will retire from esports following the EPS SXVII Finals this weekend.

SK Gaming's world famous "FIFA Twins" DE Dennis 'styla' Schellhase and DE Daniel 'hero' Schellhase are retiring from the world of esports following the completion of this weekend's EPS Season XVII Finals. They leave the game and esports as the most successful FIFA players of all time with a trophy and medal haul the envy of anyone.

Their story began with a bang as the twins met in the final of WCG 2003 and also won the 2on2 gold medal at the same event. From 2003 to 2007 there was only a single WCG, 2004, at which one of the pair did not capture the gold medal. The WCG success story continued even up until 2009 where hero captured his second silver medal. The very same Hero also won ECG/SEC twice. For their accomplishments both were inducted into the WCG hall of fame as "WCG legends".

From seasons VII to XVI of the EPS the twins collectively won five 1on1 titles, with Styla grabbing three and hero two. Styla's three all impressively came in consecutive seasons. Meanwhile from seasons IV to XVI they were crowned EPS team champions an incredible nine times, including a streak of seven titles in a row. hero was named Most Valuable Player of the EPS in both seasons VIII and X. Across the span of 2004 to 2008 each received two nominations for the E-sports award in the category of "International Player of the year".

SK Gaming's Managing Director Alexander "TheSlasH" Muller had this to say about their departure:

"It has been an incredible time with Daniel and Dennis in eSports! The two of them represented eSport almost like no other and there is no title those two haven't won. They also coached one of their teammates to become world- and euro-champion. Having them in SK was an honor and we are proud to announce that Daniel and Dennis Schellhase will be the first players to be presented within the SK Gaming Hall of Fame to be published in Dec 2010.

Daniel and Dennis, all the best to you guys! Thanks for a wonderful and exciting time and all the best for your future!"
