The Protoss player from Sävar, Sweden has joined Team Dignitas.
- "I'm going to give it my all to ensure that I represent my team in a formidable fashion," says Jesper "Bischu" Johansson.
The UK-based organization Dignitas adds in a third Swede in their StarCraft 2 team roster. Housing already Tim "merz" Olsson and Jeffrey "SjoW" Brusi, Bischu will surely fit right at home.
The stalwart Protoss player managed to qualify for the group stage at DreamHack Winter 2010 after winning one of the BYOC qualifier tournaments. He failed to advance to the playoff after being unlucky in picking the wrong side of a coin in a direct elimination coin toss. This after having ended in a tiebreaker stalemate with Socke and Naama.
Bischu becomes the first Protoss player on the team.
- "First off I want to express how overly excited I am to be able to play for Team Dignitas, to be a part of such a prestigeous organisation with amazing players like they have is something I take great pride in. Be it offline or online, I'm going to give it my all to ensure that I represent my team in a formidable fashion and further develop my skills as an SC2 player," says Bischu.
- "Also having met some of the SC2 squad members at various events I know that I will have a blast with this team, I'm looking forward to what our team can accomplish in the future and lastly I want to thank the Team Dignitas management for giving me this wonderful opportunity."
