Hi, my name is Nick “Ziktomini” Copello, and I am 18 years old and hail from Birmingham, UK. I have recently just finished school and plan on taking a gap year to focus on StarCraft II full time. Recently, I attended and won the first StarCraft II WCS United Kingdom National Finals, earning a place representing the UK at the WCS EU Finals.
StarCraft II is my main game, I have played others like League of Legends and WarCraft 3, but the depth of StarCraft keeps me hooked. I originally started off as a Protoss player, but after watching FruitDealer’s performance against Boxer, I switched to Zerg even though it had a more unorthodox play style.
This has been a big year for me in terms of StarCraft II; I’d like to be able to make a bit of money to justify me not having a job during my gap year (StarCraft II year!), and I would like to improve to be the best. Of course, with this I’d like to be able to play more tournaments and get invites to invitationals and suchlike, and represent the team on the biggest stages in StarCraft II.
