Dario "TLO" Wünsch Talks ESports Global Reach

NEW YORK CITY -- Dario "TLO" Wünsch is a StarCraft II player from Leipzig, Germany who made his first trek to the United States at New York Comic Con to play for Team Liquid at the Intel Extreme Masters (IEM). The former Brood War and Supreme Commander player has amassed a global following, in part, because of his unorthodox tactics in SC2. He’s also as solid playing as Terran as he is playing Zerg in the game. TLO stands for “The Little One,” his older brother is “The Big One.”

The pro gamer, who has had to take time off in 2011 as a result of suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, continues to impress in the international stage. He also takes time to use his eSports celebrity to give back to the community. He played StarCraft for 24 straight hours to raise $2,487 for “StarCraft Without Borders,” a charity event that raised money for Doctors Without Borders. The stream peaked at 26,000 live viewers, showing his global pull.

Wünsch currently resides in South Korea, where he’s able to hone his skills in the ultra-competitive eSports country. The pro gamer talks about the popularity of eSports today and explains how he ended up in The Big Apple competing against the best players in the world today in this exclusive interview.
