William ‘Chobra’ Cho, Creative Producer and Commentator at ESL, about his new position:
"I am thrilled to be working with ESL. I always had much respect for the advancements ESL has made in esports. The couple of chances I had to work at ESL events in the past, the production, stage, and overall environment really allowed me to establish a connection with the fans. That is crucial as a presenter on stage, and I am honored to be given a chance to now also take part in the foundations of it behind the stage as a creative producer. I look forward to sharing the experiences I gained in the East to take even greater strides in esports with ESL in the future."
