As a manager for the One versus One (1v1) Division of United 5, North America
“As a self-proclaimed professional gaming fanatic, I am extremely happy to work with United 5 to develop the best 1v1 Division possible. With the help of my experience and my love for 1v1 Deathmatch, I expect our players to be some of the most entertaining, successful, and popular gamers—for the World Tour and beyond. Having watched prize money for professional gaming go from ten thousand dollars to one million in a few short years, I can’t think of anything more exciting than this opportunity.”
