ImageSK officially announces partnership with oGs by which they MC and NaDa will represent SK Gaming in events outside of South Korea. NaDa's first event will be Assembly Summer.

SK Gaming is today officially announcing its partnership with Old Generations (oGs) which will see world famous SC2 players KR and KR Yoon-Yeol 'NaDa' Lee representing SK Gaming at events held outside of South Korea. At domestic events, in South Korea, MC and NaDa will play as oGs players, but with an SK Gaming patch on their uniforms. At non-Korean events they will wear SK Gaming uniforms.

NaDa's first event representing SK Gaming will be Assembly Summer 2011 in Finland.

oGs manager KR TheWind had the following to say:

"Today the players MC and NaDa are joining the partnership with SK Gaming and we are really happy for them and thankful to SK for this big opportunity. I will do all the best I can to ensure that both players are bringing good results for the partnership of SK Gaming and oGs."


DE Alexander "TheSlaSH" Mueller, Managing director of SK Gaming, explained:

"Adding those two names to the SK roster and entering this partnership with oGs is one of the most exciting steps SK has taken in the past few years. Ever since we signed Korean players for our RTS section, it has been a blast. We are more than happy to present those two to our community and we are hungry for StarCraft II titles!"


DE Min-Sik "reis" Ko, player manager of SK Gaming, added:

"I am very happy to welcome those two big names in SC:BW and SC2 history to SK Gaming. I know both privately and I know that both are really nice guys and very ambitious. It's an honor for me to work with both from now on and thanks to oGs for the cooperation."


MC is widely considered to be one of the very best players in the world, if not the best, and has the accomplishments to back up that reputation. He has won two GSL titles, the Dreamhack Invitational and Copenhagen Games. He also placed 3rd-4th at the GSL World Championship, 3rd at MLG Columbus, 3rd at HomeStory Cup III and 2nd at NASL.

NaDa is one of the most famous names in StarCraft history, second perhaps only to that of BoxeR. After the aforementioned 'Emperor' NaDa was the second truly great player to grace Brood War, and is considered second in the lineage of bonjwas who dominated the game. With a record six individual titles and ten finals appearances he still holds a number of records to this day. He was the first player, and now one of four, to ever win the golden mouse, for three OSL titles.

Since switching to SC2 NaDa has proven to be one of the most consistent players in terms of performance level as he has made the Ro8 of GSL's Code S three times, finishing 3rd-4th last season.
