HOUSTON, Texas — December 2, 2011 — Today, Quantic Gaming regretfully announces the dissolution of our partnership with the South Korean StarCraft II team, Incredible Miracle.
The Quantic Incredible Miracle partnership, established on October 21st this year, made Quantic the official representative organization for Incredible Miracle internationally. Through the partnership, Incredible Miracle players attended two foreign events – Blizzcon 2011, and MLG Providence 2011.
Despite the end of this partnership, no hard feelings or ill-will exist between Quantic and Incredible Miracle. It should be emphasized that the decision to dissolve the partnership was made jointly between both organizations, and is being announced formally this quickly out of a genuine sense of obligation and appreciation for the outstanding support shown by our fans and friends.
Kang Dong-hoon, Incredible Miracle’s coach and manager, had this to say in regards to the end of the partnership:
"I am deeply sorry – to all the QIM fans who have supported us – for having to announce the end of this partnership. I really hope that in the future Quantic will become the best international eSports team. We will both seek to maintain a good relationship and I hope to stay friends in the future. I highly appreciate Mark and our friends at Quantic for their kind support, understanding and sincere cordiality."
Quantic Founder & CEO, Mark Ferraz, made the following statement regarding this monumental, yet unfortunately short-lived alliance:
“I regret that our time together was short; both of us were sincere when we initially expressed our desire for a deep & lengthy partnership. I am glad, however, that the time our teams had together was enjoyable and productive - especially the QIM Fan Event we held at Providence. Together, we will complete our immediate participatory competition obligations that remain, as well as continue to support one another into the future through friendship.”
Quantic wishes Mr. Kang and Incredible Miracle all the best in their future endeavors in Korea and beyond. Despite the conclusion of the partnership, Quantic’s StarCraft II roster remains unaffected. Both Quantic and Incredible Miracle are looking forward to a bright and successful future, even if we are unable to share that future together.
