Today we would like to announce the addition of two players to the roster of Team Reign.
To begin, we are very excited to have signed Jo “Artist” Min Ho. Formerly a member of the team fOu, Artist has spent most of the new season dominating the NA ladder at rank 1 with a winrate over 83%. He was semi-pro in Brood War, and as a long standing member of fOu, he has lived and trained in the fOu team house.
First of all, I appreciate Team Reign recruiting me. I want to go to USA to play tournaments as soon as possible. Also, I want to show my gameplay to the fans. It’s a pleasure to meet you all.

Like the other members of Team Reign, Artist will be living and training in our team house. Additionally, we are honored to assist him in continuing his academic studies in America. We fully support our players’ goals outside of StarCraft and admire Artist’s initiative and motivation to master English and other disciplines.
Finally, completing our VT reunion tour (that’s a joke), we have also signed Andrew “giX” Benson to Team Reign. Previously a member of VT Gaming, giX was part of the CES champion Indiana University team and has repeatedly won or finished highly in weekly online events. He recently qualified for WCG by defeating Huk 3-2 in the finals.
I am looking forward becoming a part of Reign. It has been a dream of mine to live and train in a professional setting with like minded individuals. I am truly excited to see what will unfold.
Andy "giX" Benson
When Reign was first announced to VT Gaming, we made it clear that players who wanted to step up their efforts would be welcome on Team Reign. Though VT was dissolved in the aftermath of the announcement, we were willing to honor our original intention to players who showed they were dedicated enough to train in our team house. In the past month, giX has done just that and now we welcome him to Team Reign.
As we mentioned in our earliest release, for those who were wondering, Artist is one of the two previously unannounced players. We still have one additional player left to complete the Team Reign roster, who we will announce at a later date.
