Grubby: "I am indeed the underdog [in SC2]"

Imagefragster spoke to Grubby about switching to SC2, the possibility of competing in the CEPL WC3 league and whether he'd consider moving to Germany for the EPS in SC2.

The ever popular NL Manuel 'Grubby' Schenkhuizen, of team US Evil Geniuses , was interviewed by fragster and discussed his future in both WarCraft III and StarCraft II.

On whether there was an option to go to China and play in the CEPL team league:

"It seems hard to go there, because you need to be in a Chinese team and to have a maximum of one foreigner per team. So there is no option of getting a bunch of foreigners together to go there, either. But even though I haven't gone yet, that doesn't mean I won't. As I understand it, they're planning multiple seasons."

Asked what would happen if in six months Grubby realised he could not compete with Europe's best SC2 players:

"That wouldn't be according to my plans, but I don't believe that I wouldn't be able to compete with the top Europeans after six months of intense training. Although I still have a long way to go – starting late – I believe in myself and I know what I can and cannot do."

Whether he would consider playing in the German EPS like non-Germans DeMusliM and ClouD have:

"If I do go to another country to play in a SC2 League, personally I'd rather go for the GSL than the EPS. ESL and EPS are great, but the decision to move to another country is not easily made. Still I think GSL would be totally worth it."

If he likes the new WarCraft III 1.25 patch:

"I think the changes are well thought out and will have a positive effect on the game balance. Sadly, I haven't played 1.25 at all yet, as there's no good players to play with. I've been playing only SC2 since I got back from ECL two weeks ago."

Grubby is one of WarCraft III's legendary icons and his two WCG gold medals, one silver medal and one bronze medal make him one of the tournament's most successful players ever in any game.
