Reynor wants to play StarCraft professionally as long as he can
StarCraft is not the most enticing game for the modern youngster. However, Riccardo ‘Reynor’ Romiti is one of the few young stars from the current era and he is intent on playing the game as long as he can. That is big since StarCraft does not have the same popularity as it once had.
Reynor is one of the best players on the current SC scene. He just won ESL One Katowice 2021 which is a big achievement since this was an event that only South Korean stars won in the past apart from Joona 'Serral' Sotala did so in the 2018 edition of the event.
Reynor entered the SC scene as a bright-eyed youngster who was curious to watch pro games. He even made friends around the world just to compete and learn from other people. Reynor said, ‘I made friends with 20-year-olds, 30-year-olds, Koreans, it didn’t matter. We were all just friends and competing against each other’.
At 16 years of age, Reynor started one of his best stretches in StarCraft. He even drew Red Bull’s attention which is a big sponsor when it comes to esports teams. Reynor was a sponsored player which meant that he could come to events. He made sure to come in with a bang as he established himself as a top player which culminated in the ESL win.
With his results, Reynor is not stepping away from StarCraft anytime soon.
‘I would like to play in StarCraft as long as I can, and when I can’t anymore I would like to stay in esports’, Reynor said. ‘There are so many things. You can be a caster, a host, you can be a streamer — anything you want. There are so many paths you can take in this world, it would be so dumb to leave esports. It’s an amazing world and I would like to stay in it’.
Esports is the wave for the future and it has many career paths. Reynor is part of the star duo from Europe alongside Serral who are dominating the scene. Many players around the world are competing at the top tier of SC which includes players from South Korea.
