ROOT was founded over 11 years ago before 'esports' was much of a thing. Our goal was simple, yet ambitious: make the best SC2 team in North America. Over the years we managed to meet our expectations at multiple points, all while retaining our team spirit and cultivating friendships many of which are going strong to this day, but there's no denying that over time our competitive drive, goals and ambitions as an organization lessened to near halt.
Today that changes, as we recognize the need to re-build a sense of community and support systems for established and aspiring players in the SC2 ecosystem, we go back to our ROOTs and embark on our boldest journey yet: to become the biggest StarCraft 2 Clan, ever.

Inaugural Class and Player Policy:
We are very happy to announce that SKillous, SortOf and ShaDoWn have all decided to join / represent ROOT as our inaugural class!!
As ecstatic as we are for the power these players bring to the table and our brand, we want to make sure that everyone is aware: None of our players are under contract and their commitment / obligations end at any moment they decide to move on.
This means to other teams: ROOT players remain open to offers and we will take no fee or stand in the way of their best interest moving forward.
ROOT aims to be a support structure that fills what we believe to be an existing void. To provide a system that rewards hard-working, aspiring talent, as well as established players in their transitions and flow within the sc2 sphere. We've always taken pride in supporting and developing talent and now this mission is explicitly at the heart of our project for the foreseeable future.
While we expect we'll see exponential growth, we will continue to feature a 'main roster' on our new website, with our house-hold streamers and pro-players featured. We love and are greatful to this core and hope to be able to add many more names to this list organically as our system helps to develop and catapult players and content creators forward in the space.
