Polt & CMStorm Part Ways

Wed 2nd Mar 2016 - 6:21pm eSports Polt & CMStorm Part Ways

Today we are sad to announce that Choi "Polt" Seong Hun, a staple figure in the StarCraft scene, will be parting ways and no longer game under the CM Storm banner. For the past three years, Polt has found a home under the Cooler Master CM Storm banner and over the course of our long-term partnership, we’ve developed a strong bond with him and the StarCraft community in general.

Polt has built a legacy, winning three World Championship Series (WCS) titles, seven championship titles, and completing his Triple Crown. His achievements are only surpassed by his reputation and attitude - representing the StarCraft II scene and the Cooler Master family with respect and professionalism.

Choi "Polt" Seong Hun, gave the following statement:

“Cooler Master and the partnership we've had these past 3 years has been one of the most memorable times in my life. When I first moved to the US and I was unsure of my future, Cooler Master believed in me. With their support, I've won many championships and achieved a lot of my goals. I feel sad to part ways, but I'm also excited for the future, and I appreciate the support they have given me. I look forward to wearing the Cooler Master uniform one last time at IEM Katowice before I must hang it up for good.”

Raymen Wu, Marketing Director, gave the following statement:

“We were very fortunate to have partnered with Polt and developed a great friendship along the way. His popularity in the StarCraft II scene as “Captain America” and being a 3-time Champion of WCS America helped bring Cooler Master closer to the StarCraft community. We appreciate all the hard work over the past three years and wish him the best in the future.”

Polt will be competing at IEM Katowice 2016, where he’ll be sporting the CM Storm jacket one last time.
