Lim Yo Hwan. BoxeR. The Emperor. He's know by many names among the gaming scene, not just the Starcraft scene, and is credited as one of the forefathers of e-sports, having brought up the professional scene to a degree incomparable of anyone else's abilities in the late 90's, dominating the scene like no one else in the early 2000's.
Earlier today it was reported our old friend Rod "Slasher" Breslau did some of his own digging, reporting that the legend of gaming has been teasing a race switch once Heart of the Swarm is released, also stating that due to his shoulder injury, he'll hold off competitive play until said expansion is released (to make sure he does not further injure himself).
BoxeR's take on Heart of the Swarm:
It seems like things are continuously getting worse for Terran. I might switch to either Protoss or Zerg," BoxeR said. When asked if he was serious in switching races, he said, "actually I am half joking and half serious, but there is no law requiring me to play only Terran forever. I think that being able to embrace other races easily is the one of the pros of Starcraft II.
Although nothing is set in stone, BoxeR entails that he would "love to stand on the stage I've always dreamed of,"
going on to say the rush that one feels when they're on a winning streak can't be compared to any other feeling in gaming and that he wishes that his return is welcomed by his fans and friends. Until further details are uncovered, no one can say for sure what his return will include, but a race switch (although comical to some and not given in serious enough context to actually consider) is however possible by all means. Could he really
be switching, or is The Emperor toying with us? We'll see -- any updates regarding BoxeR and his journey towards Heart of the Swarm can be expected here on Cadred. Full story below if you feel so inclined as to take a glance.
