Nick 'Tasteless' Plott Believes ESports Will Be Mainstream Within Five Years

In the world of eSports, there’s no more famous pair of brothers than Nick “Tasteless” Plott and Sean “Day9” Plott. The former StarCraft pro gamers now run their own separate mini-empires as casters and video entrepreneurs. Nick Plott can credit his brother for getting him into the casting business. After Sean beat him at the 2005 World Cyber Games US Finals, Nick stepped in to cast for Radio ITG and ended up sticking with the burgeoning profession, in part, to feed his love for travel. He also happens to be really good at it. For the record, Sean went on to win it at all at that WCG event and he too is one of the most famous casters out there today for StarCraft II.
