Probe concerned for Protoss but says new patch will ultimately be fine: 'I think the Mothership core removal is the right move'
Sean "Probe" Kempen had a breakout 2017 in the WCS Circuit. The Australian player joined the NA team Root Gaming as a part of a partnership between Root and the tournament organizer Oceanic StarCraft 2 Championship (OSC). At the time, Probe was recognized as an up and comer, but he was still largely unknown. It wasn’t until WCS Austin when Probe established himself as a true force in SC2 with a top 16 finish at the event.
Since then, Probe has been hunting for that next big finish at a WCS LAN event. Always analytical, always intelligent, I had the opportunity to chat with Probe at WCS Montreal, moments after the tournament wrapped up.
