Surreal to think about it. 20 years in the making. Enormous honour to have boarded this ship 15 yrs ago, still curious and learning every day.

When I first signed up to ESL to watch WoW on Octoshape and play Gathers I didn’t think I would be one day celebrating its #ESL20 birthday as an employee. Couldn’t be happier

3 years with ESL on November 15th. Working for ESL is a lot of things but it’s definitely never boring.

Joined the craziness a little more than 5 years ago. Learned so much and wouldn’t miss a day as even the worst of them had a bright side at the end.

My ESL account turned 20 in September. It is older than many of the players competing at our events these days. In 2000, I still had to convince my parents that spending a weekend at a LAN event was not going to make me drop out of school. And here we are, 20 years later.

I remember [that] vividly. That @mbCARMAC was already running @IEM and we were close to tears (hugs).
